i love cute babies!! here are just a smattering of our favorites from a recent baby session we did. baby r just turned a year old, and has perfected the art of walking. she was just go! go! go! the whole session! we had so much fun running around with her. i think this is my favorite stage to take photos of. she was just so amazed by everything, and all smiles the whole time!

if you have a super cute baby – you should book a session RIGHT NOW. we love tiny humans. they’re our favorites.:D

rachel&brian|married // cuvee, milwaukee


chicago wedding photographers, milwaukee wedding photographers, iron horse hotel, villa arts terrace, cuvee

every time we go to milwaukee, i fall in love with it all over again. there’s something about old, brick buildings that just tug at my heart strings. i was sooooo excited when we first met with rachel&brian and they told us about their amazing plans for their wedding. once they told us the colors they picked out were yellow and gray, i knew it was pretty much a match made in heaven!

this was the kind of wedding where everywhere you look, there’s a thoughtfully planned detail just poking it’s head out and saying hi. there was so much thought and care put into every, little thing. rachel even told us she decided to surprise brian with a bagpiper to walk them down the aisle after the ceremony! no one knew except for us and her sister. watching brian’s reaction go from confusion, to shock, to completely giddy was great! really, i could go on and on about the fabulous vintage details, the oh-so-sexy bridal party, the stunningly, jaw-dropping venues – but i’ll just let the photos speak for themselves!

to rachel&brian – holy moly, have you guys set the bar high! thank you for choosing us to capture your wedding. we can’t begin to tell you how much fun we had and how happy we are for you guys!!

iwona&kris|engaged // downtown, chicago


chicago engagement photographers, downtown chicago engagement session, riverwalk engagement photos, lincoln park engagement photos

prepare yourself for the ultimate cuteness that is iwona&kris. iwona has a smile that could stop you in your tracks and kris looks at her like she’s the only girl for a hundred miles. it kind of makes your heart melt when you watch the two of them together. top it all off with their adorable puppy, rocki – and i’m a goner.

we started off their session down at the riverwalk, walked over to michigan avenue, had a picnic on the beach, and then wandered around lincoln park. it couldn’t have been more perfect! and the best part – they brought us sprinkles cupcakes. and as you all know – cake is the one true way to my heart! i’m completely smitten with these two and we can’t wait for their wedding next fall!

trisha&sean|married // center for visual & performing arts


chicago wedding photographers, indiana wedding photographers, center for visual and performing arts wedding, emerald green wedding

trisha&sean are quite the state-hopping duo! living in iowa, they planned a ceremony in illinois, and a reception in indiana. (that’s a lot of “i” states!) and as if that wasn’t enough travel – where did they go on their honeymoon? FIJI! i know, let’s all take a moment to swoon…

back with me? ok! so i was super excited when i arrived at trisha’s parent’s house that morning to see the bridesmaids all dolled up in my new favorite wedding color – jade green. i don’t know why i’ve become so obsessed with it recently, but i have whole weddings planned around that color in my head.;)to top it all off, trisha&sean came up with easily the most brilliant reception idea i think i’ve ever seen.

they had a dancing competition. complete with trophies for the best male and female dancers! it was truly a stroke of genius and kept the dance floor jam packed the entire night!

to trisha&sean – you guys are awesome. we had so much fun being a part of your wedding! we can’t wait to see what the future holds for you! (perhaps a little boston terrier?? haha!)
