Owen and Matt’s Chicago Cozy Noodle Engagement

Written by , Posted in Engagement

2013-06-11_0001

 

Growing up, I was surrounded by nostalgia. Tin and wooden toys are a few of my favorite things- so when we went to Cozy Noodle for Owen and Matt’s Chicago engagement photography session, we had a plethora of amazingness. Added in with that, the interior of the space paired with the autumn backdrop colors quite well. Fall in Illinois is downright breathtaking. So when Owen and Matt said they had a blanket- well, we had a field. 🙂
They are getting married at Architectural Artifacts later this summer, so speaking of being surrounded by nostalgia- it couldn’t be at a better wedding venue. Can’t wait!

Amanda and Tom’s Chicago Promontory Point Wedding

Written by , Posted in Wedding

2013-05-24_000

Amanda and Tom are the most amazing smiley people that we’ve ever shot. Seriously, every picture looks like absolute joy at their Promontory Point wedding.  I mean, you remember their engagement session at Indiana Dunes State Park with the dune jumping? Indeed.
Amanda and Tom got ready in West Town, to make sure to have the chance to have a few shots where they originally met- at The Peggy Notebaert Nature Museum, before the wedding. With their ceremony and reception at the lovely Promontory Point on Chicago’s South Side, they simply moved the ceremony indoors and opened up the hall’s French doors, while enjoying cocktail hour outside.
It was the most perfect weather for a lakeside wedding! The sky was so clear, you could see the cityscape along the shore, which allowed for the perfect bike-ride on their new tandem bike. The perfect dress for the perfect bike!

Chicago Maxim’s Lincoln Park Wedding- Mary Beth and Sam

Written by , Posted in Wedding

 

Mary Beth and Sam’s Chicago Maxim’s Lincoln Park wedding was an absolute blast. We love outdoor park weddings in Chicago. I mean, look at the amazing greenery?!  And with Mary Beth’s vintage wedding dress paired with flowers from Asrai Garden, it’s a guaranteed day of non-stop lovely. And Sam’s suit was quite amazing as well.  This wedding had some of my most favorite dance shots of all time. Maxim’s made it quite easy though, it’s such an intimate reception space, and was perfect for their theme. Congrats with everything in Colorado you two!

A Sunny Arizona Engagement Photography Session- Tim and Brittany

Written by , Posted in Arizona, Engagement, Travel

Arizona has the most amazing sunshine.  With that, rocks, succulents, and sunshine are like my photography playground.  Especially when paired with Brittany’s AMAZING vintage alpaca wool poncho find in Phoenix. We had a blast with Tim and Brittany’s Arizona engagement photography session!

Arizona Desert Engagement Photography Skull Arizona Engagement Desert Mountain PhotographyWe started the afternoon off by the train tracks, near a delightfully blue and yellow warehouse and a winky face used car lot.  I don’t know about you, but there was something amusing about a wink logo associated with… well.. a used car lot. 😉
Tim and Brittany met when Tim was traveling back to Arizona for to teach, study and have an artist reception. In case you didn’t know, he’s an amazing painter- check out his stuff! AND! Brittany is a fine art model, which pairs them quite perfectly.

A Chicago Engagement Photography Session- Bea and Steven

Written by , Posted in Engagement

Bea and Steven are getting married tomorrow!! So, what a perfect time to share their Chicago engagement photography session!
Knock on wood- we have thankfully bypassed the crazy snow/hail storm today to make room for a bright sunny day for their wedding at Artango tomorrow. Being a lover of Jeans over Lace- Bea was super excited to get Chicago engagement photography done as a great way to practice before their big day. Steven and Bea met when Bea started teaching at Steven’s school. She was placed under Steven’s wing to co-teach with, and it all started from there. That first date? Well, it didn’t start as a date, just as friends going out for a drink at a Sports bar-  but throughout those hours, those looks across across the table, you just know something special is taking place- and from Bea voicing her feelings, it all started from there.
Can’t wait for tomorrow! 🙂
