Written by , Posted in Engagement

Ahh, Cantigny Park- you’re so picturesque I want to paint you! (Or at least have a gazillion more engagement sessions here)
Angela and Eric are getting married tomorrow! So naturally, I have to show these two lovelies off for their Cantigny Park engagement photography session. I am so excited that Angela chose Cantigny Park for the first half of her engagement session.  It’s located in Wheaton, IL which is close to both of their respective hometowns in the Chicago Suburbs. And the pops of florals along with Angela’s dresses are perfect. Angela wanted to have a taste of home along with a nod to Chicago itself for added variety and awesomeness.

Angela and Eric are getting married tomorrow at The Royal Melborne Country Club in Long Grove. Ahh Mature luscious trees are the best! Now, onto their Cantigny Park Engagement session. Can’t wait for tomorrow!

A Chicago Engagement Session with John and Jane

Written by , Posted in Engagement

Jane and John had their Chicago engagement session with us shortly after arriving in town from Australia, where they live. It was an around the world affair for them as John is originally from Ireland and Jane from Chicago.  They met while both working abroad in Australia and never looked back.
They held their festivities at the Rookery later that week, as well as  in Ireland later- finishing off their around the world tickets to Japan before heading home to the amazing down under in Australia.
And the details! THE CAKE!!!!! Holy tomatoes, I can’t wait to show you all of the crazy epic details (balloons! Giant confetti balloons!) from their wedding day.

It was awesome having a chance to step outside of the world of Skype and meet John in person for the first time at this engagement session.

A Chicago Engagement Photography Session with Tracey and Chris

Tracey and Chris are awesome.  We got to essentially just roam around Pilsen with them for the Chicago engagement photography session, joking about cheese and other bits of silly-ness for the first half of their session.
I can’t wait for their wedding! Their city affair is going to be held at the beautifully historic Hard Rock Hotel in downtown Chicago later this fall. Fitting? Yes. Tracey and Chris got engaged in Las Vegas as he swept her off of her feet and they stayed at the Hard Rock Hotel in Vegas.
Now, on to the engagement session. Might I add- Tracey, your hair is AMAZING. That is all. <3

Elmhurst Wilder Mansion Wedding- Alicia and Lukasz

Written by , Posted in Wedding

Alicia and Lukasz’s Elmhurst Wilder Mansion wedding day couldn’t have been more beautiful! Everyone knows I’m a huge fan out rustic outdoor ceremonies, and they couldn’t have picked a better location. They had their outdoor ceremony at the Churchill Woods complete with vintage wooden doors for Alicia’s grand entrance.

Alicia and Lukasz have had a relationship since middle school. These two have known each other since they were little kids. Their bond is amazing and sincere, and everyone who has ever met Alicia and Lukasz would tell you that their souls are bonded deep.  Gah, I just about cried at the ceremony myself. We felt so honored to photograph these two on their stunning day. elmhurst mansion chicago wedding photographer outdoor ceremony photography_0001 elmhurst mansion chicago wedding photographer outdoor ceremony photography_0002
