A Chicago Engagement Photography Session with Tracey and Chris

Written by , Posted in Engagement

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

Black and White Sneaks- Alicia and Lukasz’ Elmhurst Wilder Mansion Wedding

Written by , Posted in Wedding

We had an amazing time photographing Alicia and lukasz’ Elmhurst Wilder Mansion Wedding. This shot Ela captured of Alicia’s Dad walking her down the aisle in the woods just as the sun parted made me want to post a bit of dramatic Black and Whites that I’m a big fan of.
Everything from the ceremony space to the florals, dress and emotion from Alicia and Lukasz’ day was awe inspiring. Take a sneak peek below.

Nicaragua Engagement Photography Love- Nicole and Joel, A peek into Central America

Written by , Posted in Engagement, Love, Travel

A couple of weddings back, I had a bridesmaid ask where our most off-the-beaten-path destination wedding was. At that moment it dawned on me, we haven’t blogged about Nicole and Joel’s amazing Nicaraguan Wedding yet! So this week is set to be dedicated to Nicole and Joel, along with a bit from our adventures in Central America.
And now, for bits of the photography we did around Central America, I introduce a bit of the love that is Nicole and Joel.
