I wanted to share some more from Megan and Joe’s wedding. The details were so much fun!
What a way to start the 2019 wedding season! Joe and Megan had just the most fantastic wedding. The entire event took place at Carnivale in Chicago and had a vintage circus/carnival theme. This was my first wedding at Carnivale and I really hope to return again. So colorful! And both the inside and outside were amazing for photos. So in the event of rain, no worries. We, however, had an amazing spring day. You have to check it out. Makeup but Chanelle Makeup Artistry. Dress by Lace and Liberty in LA. Flowers by Cattails.
Another amazing wedding last year! MJ and Evan had to most perfect day. I shot this girl’s senior photos way back when… and now her wedding?!?! Time sure flies. So awesome to be able to spend this special day with her. Gorgeous bride!!
Thank god we took these photos before the negative temperatures and snow moved in. Chris and Kayla had some specific spots in the city they wanted photos… Chicago Theater, Kinzie St. bridge, and even the corner pub where they got engaged. I can’t wait for the wedding! They are getting married at Stan Mansion…. one of the first venues I ever shot a wedding in and haven’t been back since.
Happy New Year Everyone!! I hope everyone has had an amazing Christmas and New Years, and continues to have the best 2018. I've already got around 17 weddings booked for 2018 and can't wait to hear from those of you who've gotten engaged over the holidays! First post of 2018 is part 2 of Kerry and Mirel's wedding in Punta Mita, Mexico. After the most amazing sunset ceremony, we were able to get a few wedding party photos in before our sunlight was gone. I have to say, the floral arrangements not only for the ceremony, but the reception were just jaw-dropping. The head table was probably 30' long and there were flowers from one end to the other covering all of the food, plates, glasses, etc on the table which is usually unsightly for your speech photos. As a surprise, Kerry's brother flew in Danielle Caesar to preform their first dance live! Whaaaaat?!?! They also had parent dances that were the most fun I've had. Everyone packed the dance floor until last call (including Chance the Rapper!) My description really does no justice to this wedding. Check it out.

So I'm blogging this wedding in parts... because there are so many photo I want to share. Rachel is a good friend and has been through the wringer the past year with the passing of her mother Karen. Rachel did an amazing job of keeping her mother with us throughout the entire day. We laughed. We cried. But mostly we celebrated the way Karen would have. We start with some getting ready shots, the first look and wedding party photos..
Location: Horticultural Hall, Lake Geneva WI
It was a little humid... and there were some mosquitoes... but these two rocked their session last night! Meredith has been leasing this horse for the past 2 years, and sadly, their time to part ways comes in August. Meredith will be headed off to college. What better way to celebrate her graduation and the bond these two have formed than with gorgeous sunset photos. Good luck at Balmoral this week!!
Happy Monday y'all! Yes I said y'all. I'm missing KY these days. =) I had to share a photo of my bride from Friday's wedding. So gorgeous! More to come!
Ashley and Mitch were married on Saturday over the holiday weekend. There were storms in the forecast, and with the wedding being in Joliet, I thought for sure we'd get hit. Seems like Joliet gets hit pretty hard with storms usually. But we didn't! Not a drop of rain! So thankful because the photos and reception were held at the Patrick C. Haley Mansion. LOVE that place. So beautiful and so perfect for Ashley's wedding. Have a look!
