Mary & Pat Newlywed Photos Chicago, IL My favorite bridge in Chicago also happens to be the bridge where it always smells like chocolate. Coincidence? I think not. Mary and Pat were married late May and we celebrated with a special “newlywed” portrait session a week later. Truth be told, we were hoping to take […]
Chicago, your winters may be cold, but boy are you pretty. Elizabeth and Ashish wanted a winter engagement session, so we crafted a plan tailored around just that. Elizabeth’s bright red coat was the perfect winter engagement session accessory.
Sunrise sessions in the fall are my favorite! The city is quiet and calm, and you practically have the whole place to yourselves. Morganne and Aaron got up early with me this last weekend to take advantage of the picture-perfect day in Chicago. The fall colors have been on fire these last few weeks and I can’t get enough of them!
This engagement session was pure magic. The combination of golden sunshine, the toasted fall colors, a woodland setting, and Julie and Eric’s smiling faces created the most beautiful photos. I adore these two and am thrilled to be photographing their wedding day next spring. I can’t wait to do this all again with you guys in May!
Claire and Adam met living in the same Wicker Park apartment building. Claire needed help opening a bottle of champagne. Adam saved the day and has been opening champagne bottles for Claire ever since. To start this session, we went back to the spot where it all began, with a bottle of Veuve Clicquot, of course.
Forget about those fall sweaters and Pumpkin Spiced Lattes for a few minutes and feast your eyes on this end-of-summer engagement session…
Two of my favorite humans are getting married this Sunday!!

And here I am, packing my bags to fly out to their wedding weekend in Napa and there still aren’t enough words…
This engagement session was filled to the brim with laughter and love! Avery and Chris flew in from DC last week and we had the most picture perfect weather for their sunset engagement session…
Today, I’m featuring a love story that’s been 13 years in the making. High school sweethearts, Stephanie and Alex, will be getting married next summer. I can’t even begin to tell you how excited I am to be working with these two. We had the picture-perfect Chicago day for their engagement session and I’m drooling over all the photos.
