Leah and Shrad- California Engagement Session Ventura Beach Engagement Photography

Written by , Posted in California, Engagement

Happy Cinco de Mayo! We got back from our trip to Colorado and found it only fitting to share our happy engagement sessions from our trip to Arizona and Ventura Beach engagement photography in January. With that, meet Leah and Shrad for their Ventura Beach engagement photography session. 🙂

Ventura Beach Engagement Photography

Leah and Shrad are incredibly sweet, and the perfect blend of two cultures. Leah and Shrad had their Indian Wedding ceremony last month in India, where Shrad is from.  We wern’t there, but I got to peek at Leah’s wedding photos on facebook, and Your dresses were GORGEOUS! They are having their Jewish wedding ceremony this summer in Chicago, so mixing the hometowns with the ceremonies.  Love it.  Leah and Shrad live in Santa Monica, CA and we met halfway between there and Los Angeles for engagement photos in Ventura Beach.  Which is a perfect spot, because we knew of a few nooks and crannies in the town from photographing Jennifer and David’s wedding there two years ago.

We cannot wait to see both of you in Chicago this summer for your big wedding day at Cafe Brauer.

A delightful backyard Naperville Wedding

Written by , Posted in Wedding

2013-04-01_045

Amy has impeccable taste- and patience. And it showed with all of the amazing hard work she pulled off with her  team in the backyard. It was completely transformed into the perfect Naperville wedding after party/bonfire/danceoff/photobooth/patiolight amazingness. From diy tea tin wedding centerpieces, to the photobooth props and furniture, it was unforgettable. And- a perfect place to have a first look before the ceremony.
Mike adds to Amy’s great tastes by not only being devilishly handsome, but also for getting her a west elm credenza as a wedding gift. (and you all know that I love me some West Elm.) 😉
Amy and Mike had quite thoughtful wedding favors little boxes filled with some of their favorite things, fruit jam, and hot sauce.  Excellent choices!

Amanda and Tom- An Indiana Dunes Engagement

Written by , Posted in Engagement

Tom grew up vacationing with his family at the Indiana Dunes. Amanda just got back from Africa- so the 4 of us went on a short adventure of our own for their Indiana Dunes engagement.
There was jumping, hiking, water and even getting told to move along by a cop to be had. Tom knew the area like the back of his hand from when he used to work at the Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore while in College.
