Lauren and Nate wed last fall at Rockwell on the River and I love love love how their album and framed prints turned out. The distressed leather cover is perfectly them and the pops of gold in the framing sparkles on their walls. Thanks for letting me create these special pieces for you! I hope […]

From meeting in Chicago to moving out west to Southern California, Cindy and Ken’s love story has been quite the journey. Last fall, they moved to Brussels, Belgium and needed an easy way to take their favorite engagement photos with them. Cue matted album to the rescue! I wrapped their album in a soft moonstone […]

I am in LOVE with how Jen and Taylor’s wedding album turned out! The photos from their Indian wedding celebration popped vividly on the pages. Given how bright and colorful their celebration was, the couple choose a creamy neutral leather material for the cover and a sleek, modern typeface to print their names and wedding […]

You guys! I’m always honored you trust me to capture your wedding days, but even more so when you ask me to print your first family heirlooms. I put so much love into every one of these little albums. I hope it shows! Here’s another one for the books. Literally. Chelsie and Michael’s summer wedding […]

Alyssa and Steve’s Galleria Marchetti wedding day was a dream to design and print into an album. It turned out so beautifully we had to print not one, not two but three copies! One for the bride and groom and copies for each of their mommas. We wrapped the finished albums in ivory leather covers […]

This gold frame makes me so happy! Morganne and Aaron had a big, blank wall in their River North apartment that was in desperate need of some bling…

Today I wanted to share with you what I believe is the most important investment you’ll make for your wedding. But first, I wanted to share my personal connection to wedding photography.

Personal touches and details are what turn a house into a home. That’s why I love working with you guys after the wedding to do just that! Dominique and Alan moved into their Northwest Suburban home earlier this year and I was thrilled to create a collection of custom wall art from their favorite wedding and engagement photos…

Lots of pretties arrived into the Artistrie office this week so obviously I had to share…

A few years ago, we were celebrating my grandparent’s 60th wedding anniversary and I sat down with my grandma and looked through her wedding album. Their album only has 20 pictures, but each photo brought back a memory to my grandma and she began telling me a story. Listening to her, I learned that she had the measles that day and had to get the doctor’s permission before going to the church to get married. She carried a bouquet of her favorite flower, daisies. I saw how handsome my grandpa looked while wearing his light gray tux. When you picture yourself sharing your wedding photos, do you see yourself huddled around a phone or computer, clicking through each photo one-by-one? Or do you picture sitting side by side, turning the pages of beautiful album filled with all of your favorite memories? As a wedding photographer, I hope your answer is the latter!
