I've been friends with Kerrisa since 6th grade (we met in gym class!) so I was obviously so excited to capture her and Shane's maternity photos! We shot these photos at Magnolia Plantation - and lemme tell ya, it was nothing short of dreamy! Kerrisa wore a floral crown & a maxi dress so we were able to embrace those romantic, boho vibes that the Magnolia Plantation gives off.
I'm so excited for my sweet friend & her partner to be welcoming their first baby together! Absolutely loved how their photos turned out :)
Bella + Leigh have always been such a treat to work with! I first met them both when Bella proposed to Leigh on a golf course *swoon*! It was such a creative and cute proposal - and of course, Leigh said yes! From then on, we have had multiple photo sessions - all of which have produced some stunning images!
These Chicagoans always have an upbeat attitude & we are always able to find some creative spots - I LOVED shooting them in front of the LED lights at the Chicago Cultural Center. Bella is the owner of Salon Glow Chicago, meaning they both always look 10/10! I'm super excited with how these photos in downtown Chicago turned out & I'm already looking forward to our next sesh!
I captured Branka + Ruben's magical wedding day and it was nothing short but gorgeous! Despite being late September, we were all in for a shock when the weather reached a record of high of 93 degrees out! Thankfully, we all avoided melting & these two had a fun time dancing and celebrating with their guests!
Their ceremony was at a beautiful church in Madison, WI followed by a picture perfect reception at The Edgewater. I absolutely LOVE the Edgewater - from the staircase to the water side, there are so many amazing photo ops and it's the perfect venue for any size wedding. Congrats to these two on tying the knot!
We shot Scarlet + Connor's engagement photos off Fremont street in Las Vegas! I born in Las Vegas & I always love shooting in this marvelous city ;) Scarlet & Connor are so cute together and we got them those cheesy (but photo worthy!) Vegas bride & groom ties!
This was such a fun session and these two weren't afraid to get daring & let loose a bit! From the Golden Nugget to farther off Fremont Street, we explored the downtown Vegas area & got some amazing pictures for these love birds!
Abby & Derek are high school sweethearts tying the knot next Fall! It was so great capturing their engagement photos at Grignon Mansion- one of my favorite photo spots in the Appleton area! We incorporated so much of their love story into the photos such as their graduation photo, favorite snuggle blanket, & more.
Though it's early fall, I loved how they sported their flannel matching shirts and the Grignon mansion backgrounds fit our theme of rustic, traditional images. I'm so excited for their big day in 2018!
Tiffany & Nicole are tying the knot in 2019 and their engagement photos were super fun! We explored Humboldt park in Chicago & got some really photo spots in front of beautiful flowers & the boat house! By far my fav pictures were these two on their bikes riding down the 606! Couples that bike together, stay together! ;)
Congrats to these two on their engagement & upcoming wedding festivities! Tiffany & Nicole are so cute together and you can tell how happy they are in every picture!
These two were so much fun! Jessie & Brad had a beautiful wedding in Appleton, WI - followed by a super poppin' dance floor reception! This was one of the most fun bridal parties I've ever worked with. From getting creative with their poses to playing basketball to letting loose on their school bus transportation - every moment was fun & filled with love!
Congrats to Jessie & Brad on their big day and their adventure of relocating to Utah together. What a journey as new Mr. & Mrs!
Courtney & Clare had an intimate, small, beautiful wedding ceremony + cocktail hour downtown Chicago - with views of the skyline! It was a perfect late spring/early summer day to say "I do"! I love capturing smaller weddings. Everyone really has a chance to enjoy the couple's company and you notice all the small & big details of the day.
Their rooftop ceremony + cocktail hour was picture perfect and a must "Do" venue for anyone with roots in Chicago. Congrats to Clare & Courtney on their happily ever after!
Tying the knot at the Wilder Mansion in Elmhurst, IL - Emily & Logan had a beautiful spring wedding! They had a brunch wedding- which I think is super refreshing & a creative way to plan your nuptials around! Mimosas, breakfast pastries, and their cute puppy "Bear" all had a place in their big day.
Emily & Logan were so great to work with and such a sweet couple! We did their engagement photos at the Chicago Botanical Gardens and, having met at dance lessons, their first dance was one of the best I've seen thus far! May the keep waltzing together forever!
These two love birds tied the knot at their beautiful church & celebrated afterwards at The Haight! I love The Haight - it's a beautiful venue that has that rustic charm that is easily decorated into rustic glam! Shelby & Alberto have such a fun, uplifting personality and shooting with them was so great! Their laughter and smiles are contagious :)
Congratulations to Shelby & Alberto! I had so much fun at their wedding & we had a great time shooting their photos- and their bridal party was so fun!
