Emily and Jeff’s wedding reception

I had a great time with Emily and Jeff for their engagement session over the summer and I knew their wedding reception would also be awesome!

I walked into their house to see this adorable pair of bears

We then roamed around the city for some fun portraits

I love Jeff’s laugh here!

Gorgeous flowers by Scarlet Petal!

After portraits we headed over to Cafe Brauer for the party to start!



I spent this gorgeous fall day outside photographing Jim!

Sara and Ryan’s engagement

I spent a great fall afternoon with this cute couple!

I enjoy making my couples climb things… don’t worry: he’s climbing up, not falling down here

to get here!

Shiraz and Vijay’s wedding

What a beautiful wedding at the Swissotel! Shiraz and Vijay were wonderful to work with.

One of the flower girls was far more interested in her game than preparing for the ceremony

The first time they get to see each other during the ceremony

Love the shadows!

mmm… cake.


Chicago at night

I was photographing a benefit downtown last week and loved this view as I was about to head home.

Melissa and Zach’s wedding

I walked into Melissa’s house, saw the grand piano, and immediately knew where I was going to do some portraits first!

She was ready to party!

The kids loved the ice sculpture!



Little Maddie is now 3 months!

Joelle and Mark’s wedding

What a beautiful day with Joelle and Mark!

They had their ceremony at the historic Old St Pat’s cathedral. I loved their sweet looks at each other.

Mark checking out his new ring.

I love getting to play with an awesome car!

We headed to the Chicago History Museum for their cocktail hour and reception; I love this place!

I had some fun playing with the flowers there.

You know it’s going to be a good party when a limbo pole (or scarf, in this case) is brought out


Anjlee and Ronak’s wedding

I just love the excitement, color, busyness, and fun of Indian weddings!

Ronak’s parents… they were having a blast!

This little boy was very curious about the ceremony he was about to walk in to

Apparently he was told to wait too long, so he had to amuse himself 🙂

There were tons of great moments during the ceremony


Stefanie and Jason’s wedding

Stefanie and Jason had a beautiful outdoor wedding at Galleria Marchetti. This was my first time shooting here and it was a great location!

I first met up with Stefanie and her ladies at the Palmer House downtown

Seriously, how cute are these two?!

A sweet father-daughter moment

This little one was quite energetic!
