Hello, there! Thanks for joining me on my blog, where you’ll get a peek at everything from my lovely brides and brides-to-be to fun with families, branding, personal life and travels. Stay a while and say hello!
“It’s a (my) family affair” Full disclosure: I know the groom-to-be here very well. In fact, I’ve known him his whole life…he’s my youngest brother. And he’s getting married!!! I promised myself I wasn’t going to cry, but I’m tearing up just typing those words. I am so full of love and happiness and excitement for […]
A few warm days and I feel like summer is just around the corner! And it’s a great time to start thinking about engagement sessions! Hanny and Nick had a very good idea about the kind of engagement session they wanted – it had to include their dogs and they wanted to be outside in the […]
“Amour + Miłość“ It had been just over a year since I photographed Yvonne and Greg’s engagement session, and now here they were! Taking their walk down the aisle to become Mr. and Mrs. Both come from strong ethnic communities: Yvonne’s Polish, and Greg French. I really enjoyed how they managed to blend and pay homage to […]
“Summer in the City” From the gorgeous St. Vincent DePaul church to the brilliant flowers in Oz Park to the lovely garden at Galleria Marchetti, it was a perfect summer day for Monica and Tim to say I do. And, it’s clear from their smiles, they are also perfect for each other! Thank you for […]
“Love in the Financial District” When Monica and Tim said they wanted to use the Chicago Financial District and Union Station for their engagement session, I was very excited. That part of the downtown area is full of little alleys and interesting views. And Union Station…it’s gorgeous! They liked to laugh and were so relaxed […]
“Love in Queen City” I was in Charlotte visiting family for Easter when I received an email from Cailtin, asking if I remembered her from her sister Whitney’s wedding, which I had photographed a few years ago. She was recently engaged and wanted to know if I’d be willing to come back for her own […]
“Fur Babies, too!” When Yvonne and Greg asked if we could include their dogs in their downtown Chicago engagement session, I was excited! I love when couples make the session their own, adding pets or other things to the session that are significant to them. There was also champagne…
Lights, Camera…Action! I’m used to being behind the camera, and occasionally in front of a video camera at weddings and events, but this undertaking was something very different. At weddings, the subjects are the bride and groom and their guests, so if I happen to get on camera, it’s just part of their day, as […]
“Who You Are, Not Just What You Look Like” That’s my goal, with every business client. Cheers,
“Best Thing I Ever Ate…” Oh what fun I had traveling to Charlotte, NC for a pre-wedding/engagement session! Because, the journey is just as important as the destination. More yumminess to come!
