This summer has been amazing. Every weekend, the weather seems to be perfect. I got to see many familiar faces last saturday at Ashley and Steve's wedding, which is always so fun! For our wedding party photos, we headed over to Olive Park in Chicago which was surprisingly not super busy. We only saw 3 other weddings. haha. We got some gorgeous shots and then headed over to Ravenswood Events Center. That was my first time there and loved it! We got some more shots in the alley out back. Gotta love an old brick alley! And the exposed brick inside of the venue was amazing! Such a cool space. Ashley and Steve sure know how to have fun with one another and their friends are amazing as well. Thank you so much for having me capture such an important and exciting day. Enjoy your sneak peek!
What a stunning bride. Loved everything about this wedding. So clean and fresh with light pink, white and blue. And so classic! This was a 4th of July wedding and the backdrop couldn't be any more perfect being on the pier at The Riviera with the beautiful boats and flags flying. Love love love.
SO excited that I needed to post some pics asap of Rhonda and Eric's wedding. =) I've known Rhonda since grade school. And most of her bridesmaids too! Some I've photographed their weddings and some their families. So I knew this wedding would be so much fun. For mid-november, we got pretty lucky. The rain held off and the temps were doable. I think we got some great shots! Rhonda, you looked absolutely beautiful. I'm so happy for you. Thank you so much for sharing this day with me. I def need to give a shout out to Rose who was responsible for the gorgeous flowers! Artful Rose is her company.
Such a beautiful wedding. And the weather was amazing! We started off with the ladies getting ready at the Kisbac residence and the men at the Renaissance Hotel. Love love LOVE Alexis's dress. It was Oscar de la Renta. Gorgeous! This was also my first experience with a Romanian ceremony which was so beautiful! The officiants actually wanted me to get right up in there for photos. It was amazing! Wedding party photos were at the most perfect time of day with beautiful light. We finished up with an amazing reception a the Renaissance Hotel in Schaumburg.
Well after we got rained out a couple of weeks ago, our retake was a success! Hailey and Addison were so fun! They had poses all planned out for me and were so delightful. Love these kids!twins
Happy 1st birthday to Ethan! These two did an amazing job. We first met them last summer as part of a large family portrait. Ethan was teeny tiny, and is now celebrating his first birthday and Maia is 4. So fun!
