we broke the internet

ok, maybe just our website. we just recently figured out that the contact form on our website has been broken for approximately a week. i know! MAJOR sad face. so, if you’ve tried to send us a little note recently using that form, we didn’t get it.

but the problem has been fixed! if you still are seeing the old form on the website, you’ll need to clear your browser cache and refresh the website. OR you can go directly to our new contact form.

we’re super sorry about all that. if you’ve emailed us and haven’t received a response, please resubmit your information using our new contact form. thanks!

jamie&tim|engaged // old town, chicago


chicago wedding photographers, chicago engagement photographer, old town chicago engagement session

yay for new places! don’t you just love when you discover a whole new part of a place you’ve been before? we’ve been around the lincoln park zoo dozens of times, but this is the first time we’ve shot in and around the farm-in-the-zoo. AND the first time we’ve shot around old town. it was fabulous.

and speaking of fabulous – LOOK at these two. jamie&tim are secret models. but don’t bother asking them, because they’ll just deny it. (but i KNOW these things.) they’re one of those brave couples that are planning a winter wedding in chicago, and i could not be more pumped for it. it’s going to be gorgeous! and if the engagement photos are any indication – these two will be too.;)

annie&evan|married // north shore golf club, appleton


chicago wedding photographers, appleton wedding photographers, north shore golf club wedding

i won’t lie – it always makes me slightly nervous when we don’t get to meet with our couples before the wedding. annie&evan live in san diego, so while we had chatted with them via email and phone calls, we never actually met them face to face! luckily, all my worrying was for naught. these two couldn’t have been more awesome if they tried! annie is a super fabulous chick with a killer sense of style and the world’s BEST smile. (seriously. she lights up the room. even the sun is jealous.) and then there’s evan, who should start moonlighting as a stand up comic. this guy gave the world’s best thank you speech at their reception. i was laughing, i was crying, i was crying because i was laughing so hard, and then laughing because i was crying!

and to top off the list of why these two are great, they remained calm, cool, and collected no matter what the day threw their way! they had an awesome bridal party who waived down both a skateboarder AND a ferrari during the photos. and let’s not forget the time their groomsmen had a dance-off with another bridal party. annie’s sister’s surprised everyone by bringing in a nacho cart after dinner. because as annie will emphatically tell anyone who will listen – nachos are the greatest snack food in existence.

to annie&evan – i’m still pretty convinced that we need to move to san diego and be best friends. you guys really are the perfect couple, and we had such a great time at the wedding!

and on a completely different note, the best piece of advice anyone ever gave me before my wedding was that something will always go wrong. and it’s all about being able to take that moment when it comes and just let it go. for most weddings, this amounts to someone running late, or a bad weather forecast. for annie&evan, it came in the form of a medical emergency. i think we can speak for everyone there when we say we’re so glad that father bob is ok!

emily&andrew|married // maylsake peabody estate, oak brook


chicago wedding photographers, oak brook wedding photographers, mayslake peabody estate wedding, fall wedding

we met emily way back when we first moved back to chicago while volunteering at the naperville area humane society. emily is hands down one of the sweetest people i’ve ever met. she’s amazingly kind, relaxed, super funny, and just a genuinely amazing person. and andrew is her perfect match. their personalities mesh in one big ball of quirky, adorable, silly awesomeness. hanging out with the two of them mean that you will spend the whole time giggling at their antics.

this was our first time at the peabody estate, and holy moly! i can’t believe how jaw-dropping the whole property was. and such a perfect fall day for a wedding! but the best part of emily&andrew’s wedding? THE BARBEQUE! they had the wedding catered by uncle bub’s with all the best bbq fixings to be found. (including marshmallow topped mashed sweet potatoes! MY FAAAAAVORITE!!)

emily&andrew – we seriously love you guys. you’re the best! your life together will be amazing.
