Ashlee and Kevin’s engagement

Ashlee and Kevin were lots of fun to work with; we wandered around Michigan Ave for a bit just playing and laughing.


I while back my friend Keir and I scheduled a photo play-date downtown. I always love doing these with fellow photographers.

Lincoln Park Zoo familiy portrait

Off to the zoo! My friend Ande hired me to photograph her and her parents, and we had a great time! Lots of laughter on this session.

Rosalyn and John’s wedding

Roz and John had a beautiful wedding in downtown Chicago! We started at the University Club for some portraits, headed out into downtown for more portraits, Old St. Pat’s for the ceremony, then returned to the University Club for their reception. Many thanks to my lovely second photographer for the day, Shay Feeney.

I adored Roz’s blue bow on her gown.

On her way to see John!

What the guys were up to as the ladies were getting ready

Roz and John decided to see each other prior to the ceremony, which is always fun as they have some time to really enjoy each other’s company.

Every couple needs a portrait with a bear, right?

A good looking bunch!

One of my favorites locations to hit downtown

We were granted access to a tiny room above the main reception room for some photos

The slideshow! Please be patient while it loads.

Emily and Jeff’s engagement

I had a blast with these two! We explored Michigan Ave and surrounding areas on a super hot and humid afternoon.

I knew it would be an awesome session when I was getting shots like this in just the first couple of minutes!

Elizabeth and Jason’s wedding

What an amazing and heartfelt wedding! I just adored working with Elizabeth and Jason all day. We were at the First Unitarian Church in Hyde Park for both the ceremony and reception.

Very cool origami at the church

I love her expression here!

Elizabeth’s first moment seeing herself as a bride!

Such a proud dad

And such an adoring and loving husband (to be)


The wedding party was lots of fun. Not too many serious moments with them!

For some reason they started making zombie movements

The blessing before dinner

I loved her awesome colorful flowers

They had a few cakes at the reception made by friends. This one was Dungeons and Dragons themed.

Jason wanted to honor his parents and invited them up for a special dance

Many more photos in the slideshow!

Audrey and Dan’s wedding

Fabulous day for the wedding of Audrey and Dan!

I loved the detail of Audrey’s flower on her dress

Their First Look

We stopped in at Lizzie McNeill’s for a few portraits (and a little break from the hot sun)

Dan did a cute little dance as Audrey’s father escorted her to the altar

I just loved this girl’s expression

Awesome detail on their cake

They certainly know how to make an entrance!


As promised, here is Liza’s brand new daughter. Welcome, little Ceres!

Welcome baby Madeline! You may remember her beautiful mom, Vanessa, from a short bit ago.

Vanessa told me that little Maddie is very much a lady, always crossing her legs when she sleeps.

A very cute gift for Maddie

I loved the decorations in Maddie’s room
