Chicago Engagement Photography Session – Laura and Mark

Written by , Posted in Engagement

Mark, or who we like to call “The Boulevard Man” picked a morning at Humboldt Park to be the spot for their Chicago engagement photography session- he’s a bit of a city planner, so he knows Chicago inside and out. The boathouse at Humboldt Park is always a site to see, yet so rarely we are able to stop and enjoy the trio of arches and vaulted ceilings- and what better day then a morning with these two! As you can see in the shot above- Laura can bring the sass with her big blue eyes, even at 6:30 in the morning. ūüėČ

Chicago Wedding Photography- Bianca and Jonathan’s Wedding

Written by , Posted in Wedding

Bianca and Jonathan’s Chicago Wedding Photography was featured in the TCW magazine gave me an itch to post their amazing and fun wedding. ¬†Bianca filled the day with loads of surprises for Jonathan- from the vintage Rolex Watch, to the Brazilian Samba dancers at the Reception. They were a joy to be around and a joy to photography! What a fun bunch!

Bianca and her bridesmaids got ready at the same hotel as Jonathan, and they chose to do a first look- which allowed them for plenty of time to tour multiple spots in the city of Chicago for bunches of fantastic photo opportunities. ¬†Bianca’s brother found a purple mural of the city scape on the way into town, Michigan ave, North Avenue Beach and all around the art institute we went before zipping back to the ceremony- and onto the Samba dancing surprise! ¬†Amazing reception guys!!! Congrats!

Ahh-musings: Mignonette Bridal Opening

Written by , Posted in Love, Musings

Introducing Mignonette Bridal– or better yet, I should say- Introducing Kpone.

Kpone is an amazingly creative dress designer. As I perused through the dresses and delightful accessories at Mignonette’s Grand Opening on February 4th, I noticed an array of different dress designs- everything from the Mod Shift dress, Romantic Lace, to the Vintage tea length. And the accessories and jewelry to go with everything! ¬†I felt like a kid in a candy store, and the warm romantic decor GAH!¬†And there was even a men’s section, which makes for a delightful excuse to bring the bride groom.

If you’re ever near Belmont and Ashland, be sure to check it out. A custom designed dress? Indeed! ūüôā
