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! 🙂

A Beachside Lake Michigan Wedding Photography – Tammy and Chris

Written by , Posted in Wedding

Lake Michigan Wedding Love Kiss Studio FinchBeing a Michigan native, when Tammy inquired with us that she was having her wedding on Lake Michigan and getting ready at her parent’s blueberry farm, I immediately gushed for joy.
Tammy and Chris live in Chicago, so we opted for the city (Chris’ motorcycle and all) for the engagement session, and basked in the beautiful nature surrounding us for their wedding photography in Michigan. Seriously. It was a gorgeously sunny day for Michigan wedding photography. From jars of blueberry jam to colorful lake-shore sunsets and beach-side fire pits, it couldn’t have been anymore perfect of a wedding day for Tammy and Chris.

Eileen and Grant’s Beautiful Calligraphy Wedding Invitations

Written by , Posted in Invitation, Love

Honestly, I let out a bit of a squeal of excitement when I saw Eileen and Grant‘s delightful calligraphy wedding invitations.  I could examine every curve and letter of the beautifully done calligraphy along with their vintage stamps. Even an Iowa stamp! (Which is where they’re getting married.) 🙂
Perfectly paired with a Peach Ranunculus bloom.

Can’t Wait!

Jenna and Matt’s Chicago Engagement Photo Session

Written by , Posted in Engagement

chicago wedding photographer engagement photography session 1Something about Jenna’s Navy blue dress makes me swoon. I’m a HUGE fan of deep blues for engagement sessions, it’s just the right pop of subtle color. Along with jeans paired with jackets that Matt is sporting. Jenna and Matt just moved to Chicago from Milwaukee- into the neck of the woods I moved to when I first came to Chicago. (Hope you two had a chance to stop by Matilda, the cocktails are delicious!)
Jenna and Matt are having their wedding at the Royal Fox Country Club in St. Charles this summer. Can’t wait! Oh, and make sure to check out their DIY save the date panels they made at the bottom of the post!
