three cheers for new venues! well, new to us anyway.

when we arrived at the chicago illuminating company for shelby&scott’s wedding, we had to be careful not to drool on the cameras. this place is gorgeous! very modern, if you are into that sort of thing (which we are. if you aren’t, you need to visit. it will make a believer out of you).

despite a stormy forecast and some crazy downpours earlier in the day, the skies parted and it was gorgeous when we wanted to pop outside for a few photos. back inside, food for thought totally knocked it out of the park. we are talking best food ever! for any of the guests reading this, two words: raw honeycomb.

to shelby&scott – we are still flabbergasted by the awesomeness of your wedding day. thank you so much for letting us be a part of it!

nothing makes me happier than hearing that our clients are telling all their friends about us.:Dthe completely adorable camp family found us by way of bridget&brad. i was so excited when mom, lia, told me all about baby a and how she was the world’s happiest baby. of course, i’m sure every mom brags about their baby – but lia was not kidding! this was literally the EASIEST session we’ve ever shot. i pray every night that our (far in the future!) babies turn out this cute!!
