Our Trip to Japan Nara and Osaka Edition (Part 2)

Written by , Posted in Wedding


We took a day trip over to Nara so that I could experience the ever amazing Mochi man- the fastest Mochi pounder in the world!  Aaaand it was an excuse to cheat on my diet and try some of his amazingly warm and gooey green tea/red bean mochi.  It was phenomenal.

I can even begin to explain the amount of joy this action shot gives me.  And the fact that I was able to capture it on 120mm film… it was… oh what’s the word for it?  Ah- yes, a serendipitous moment. 😀

We started off  taking the train from Kyoto over to Nara- which is where the famous mochi place is- and AND! There is also a giant park where you can feed the deer cookies.  It was the best.


The deer also do tricks- if you bow to them, they bow to you for cookies. Yep- these wild deer know what’s up. That’s Jason in the middle of receiving a bow back… and in the blurry forground you can see a deer butt in the midst of pestering me and trying to get into my pockets for some deer cookies.
So something else I learned is that deer antlers are actually kinda squishy- and super sticky!  I had no idea.

Here’s another shot of the mochi guys. The name of the Mochi shop is Nakatanidou and it’s on the Sanjo Dori road.

And here is a link to a video about them in case you guys are a bit curious. 🙂


Aaaand after our afternoon in Nara, we hopped on a train to Osaka to have some sushi and wander around a bit more before hopping on a train back to our Airbnb in Kyoto.  (The JR Pass, I’m telling you, is awesome.)

Hyatt Lodge at Mcdonald’s Campus Wedding with Megan and Patrick

Written by , Posted in Wedding

megan patrick blogpost-150-2
And blogpost season begins!!!  I’ve been in the midst of working on Megan and Patrick’s album, so I couldn’t help but share some photos online from their awesome sauce wedding.  Megan and Patrick had a Hyatt Lodge at Mcdonald’s Campus wedding in Oakbrook. The scenery, guests, weather, details, overall vibe, and everything was picture perfect (zing!) And I was really digging Megan’s florals and bouquet- created by Ipomea Floral Design.

Before Megan and Patrick’s Hyatt Lodge at McDonald’s Campus wedding, the guys got ready at the hotel and Megan and her ladies got ready at Megan’s parents’ house, which was also the location of their post Chicago wedding ceremony/pre cocktail hour VIP cocktail hour. 😀

Oh oh! And they also had Irish Dancers from the school Megan and her friends danced at.  It was amazing to watch! I included some of those photos after the cocktail hour.

Ok, anyway- enough of my babbles. You can scroll and check out the loveliness that is Megan and Patrick’s Hyatt Lodge at Mcdonald’s Campus Wedding for yourselves.

A Blumen Gardens Wedding with Jordan and Justin in Sycamore

Written by , Posted in Wedding

We had the opportunity Jordan and Justin’s Blumen Gardens Wedding in Sycamore. Jordan and Justin are so incredibly sweet!  Ah! And Blumen Gardens has the most lovely outdoor wedding space.  We feel so blessed to have met these two. Even with Chicago’s unpredictable weather, this summer wedding season, we always are fans of outdoor wedding ceremonies. I love how personalized outdoor ceremonies are and hands down we love photographing wedding ceremonies outside.

Blumen Gardens has the most wonderful rustic and charming outdoor ceremony space, and it’s not too far from Chicago.  Jordan and Justin actually got ready in Naperville, before heading to Sycamore for their wedding.  Jordan chose to get ready at her parents’ house, because it’s close the her and Justin’s new apartment, and perfectly on the way to Sycamore. I love it when people get ready at their parents’ house because it adds a lovely personal touch to their wedding day. 🙂

Ok, more jabber later- here are the photos from their Blumen Gardens Wedding.

This shot that Jason took is my personal favorite from Jordan and Justin’s Blumen Gardens Wedding ceremony.  Jordan is a huge fan of Black and White photos, so we made sure to include extra and even shot a couple of rolls of film in black and white as well. <3

Katie and Josh are Getting Married at A New Leaf This Weekend!

Written by , Posted in Wedding

Hurray!  Katie and Josh are having their A New Leaf wedding this weekend! Here are a few photos from their engagement session.  We started off at North Avenue Beach at sunrise- and headed down to Millenium Park for the rest of the session. The only time we ever take photos at The Bean is for sunrise engagements, so that way people are able to have that spot to themselves. Or… mostly to themselves- there were already about a dozen people at the Chicago bean for sunrise!  Crazy!

After the bean, we wandered up Millennium Park towards the river. Every inch of that area is an engagement session photo op! Especially when you have the city to yourself. We had the most amazing light by the Wrigley Building next to the river.  Ah!  All of these sunrise engagement sessions make me want more.  I’m now kind of addicted to this magical light.
Thank you guys for braving the early hours with us! Can’t wait for your wedding day at A New Leaf!!

A Peek into Jordan and Justin’s Blumen Gardens Wedding on Film

Written by , Posted in Wedding

We are excited to blog Jordan and Justin’s Blumen Gardens Wedding next week!  I wanted to share a few shots we caught on 120mm BW film at dust, just before the sun fully set and the light was fleeting.
Blumen Gardens is an incredibly amazing and beautiful wedding space, and we were lucky enough to have had the opportunity to capture Jordan and Justin’s big day there.
Here are a quick few snaps from their wedding day in Sycamore, Illinois: (until I post the rest of the amazingness next week!!)
