Lexi and Tyler | Chicago Wedding

Ok… hands down the best first look I’ve seen. That’s all I managed to get through with this post only because the getting ready shots up through the first look were so amazing… If I kept going, I’d be posting over 100 photos. So perhaps another day I will share more from this wedding. Until then, just try not to get teary seeing this first look.

Chris and Kayla | Chicago Engagement

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.

Becca + Andrew | Chicago Engagement

Becca wasn't even sure she wanted engagement photos, but since I offer them as complimentary... why not? I met up with Becca and Andrew the other night at their place. They wanted me to capture them just doing their thing at home and around the neighborhood. It was THE BEST. We went up to their rooftop to find an amazing space to entertain friends with a fabulous view. We took a little spin around the block where we found Becca's favorite trees and some really great building facades. We even stopped for Gelato! Check it out!

Amy and JD Engaged

So excited for Amy and JD's wedding next September! They are having it at Pier Wisconsin, which is a venue I absolutely love up in Milwaukee. We had a bit of a chilly day for our photos at the lake shore, but with cold weather comes an empty beach. Perfect for our session. Love love love the muted colors of the city and Lake Michigan and that awesome striped blanket they brought to cuddle up in. Can't wait for the big day my new friends!
