every once in awhile you get a wedding that goes so perfectly, you think you might be in a movie. ayrielle&jeff definitely had one of those weddings! every little thing just fell into place that day. and not only are these two some of the most genuinely nice people you could meet, they’re also completely flipping adorable together. i remember thinking at their engagement session that photographing their wedding was going to be super fun and soooo easy (look at them!), and i was not wrong.:D

this was also our first time at the medinah country club, and omgshutupthisplaceissogorgeous. nothing makes us happier than a location where literally every place you look is another awesome photo opportunity. it was literally like a dream come true. (they also had mcdonald’s for a late night snack, and let’s be honest – that really is the best part of any wedding.;)hehe.)

to ayrielle&jeff – as if we haven’t made our feelings perfectly clear already, you guys are amazing! thank you so much for having us as a part of your wedding.

erika&chris|married // union ballroom, champaign-urbana


chicago wedding photographers, champaign urbana wedding photographers, university of illinois wedding photographers

we often joke that everyone we photograph has a secret model inside of them dying to get out. well in the case of this wedding, we had actual models in the bridal party. no pressure, right?;)erika and her fabulous siblings have all modeled professionally, and it was so much fun to get to work with them at this wedding! on top of that, this was our first wedding down at the university of illinois campus! i’ve never been to a big ten campus before, so i was particularly excited about this one.

erika&chris planned a positively gorgeous wedding, chock full of awesome photo-op locations and perfect details. my personal favorite parts of the day? in no particular order – erika&chris’s first look at their home; erika’s drop-dead-gorgeous dress; and the looks on erika’s brother’s faces as she walked down the aisle. (seriously, it was so cute.)

erika&chris – thank you so much for having us as a part of your day! it couldn’t have been more perfect!

ainslie|portraits // downtown, long grove


chicago children

little miss ainslie is one of my favorite babies of all time. when we met her last year she was the smiliest baby we’ve ever seen. this time around she took a couple minutes to warm up to us, but oh boy, once she did we were all best friends! nothing makes me happier than getting to hang out with some super fun clients in an awesome location like downtown long grove. in fact, we had so much fun that when we were done, ainslie didn’t want to leave! can’t wait to watch her grow up. she’s going to be stealing some hearts very soon!:D

heather&joe|married // belvedere banquets, elk grove village


chicago wedding photographers, elk grove village wedding photographers, belvedere banquets wedding photos

i have an admission to make… i have fallen madly in love with heather&joe. i mean i am totally and completely smitten with the two of them. the moment i knew it was when they first saw each other during their first look. through a telephoto lens hiding in some bushes (because i’m hardcore like that), i saw heather’s breath catch when joe turned around. i melted into a pool of goo. it was like the epic finale of a romantic comedy was happening before my eyes. i love love.

what else makes me love them, you ask? well most definitely the way they are always laughing when they are around each other. and the fact that heather’s sister gave a reception toast almost completely from movie quotes. and that heather’s other sister sang “in spite of ourselves” by john prine and iris dement as their first dance. and that their favors involved margarita truffles from anna shea’s chocolates (my favorite dessert – EVER!) in shot glasses.

heather&joe – in case you missed, i love you guys. (and tony does too! :D) thank you so much for choosing us to be your photographers!
