May 31, 2010   |   wedding

This past weekend, I had the pleasure of shooting the wedding of Krystle and Chris. These two were married at Silver Lake Country Club in Orland Park. We had beautiful weather and–thanks to a first look–plenty of time for photographs. It was one of the most easy-going weddings I’d ever been to. They were calm, there were excited and–most of all–they were just happy to be getting married. Tomorrow, they leave for Hawaii. Here are some sneak peeks before they head out!

These are two people that LOVE their pup, Bailey. Krystle really wanted to include him in some shots.

I adore this one.

Okay, I lied. There was one moment when nervousness abounded: the first look. I’ve never seen a groom so anxious to see his bride. It was completely adorable.

I love this moment from the ceremony:


And one last one from the first dance:

May 27, 2010   |   engagement

As I was driving home from our engagement session, I got a text message from Ariane telling me to look for ticks, she and Matt had each found one on them. Of course, this was after we’d walked through knee-high weeds and stumbled upon a decaying deer carcass. Would I do it all again to get these photos? Absolutely! It was 100% worth it. These two really thought about how they wanted their engagement session to look. They thought about it, and they prepared! Ariane showed up with a sign that read “Sweet Love” and a million little hearts that she and Matt had made themselves. It was a wonderful session and I can’t wait until their wedding. Luckily, I don’t have to; they are getting married next week!

Fierce, Ariane!


How cute are these two? Seriously.

Tonight, I met Krystle and Chris downtown for their engagement photos. It was hot and humid, but we were just glad it wasn’t raining (this is our 4th attempt at an e-session). Luckily, the weather is supposed to be beautiful all week. That’s great, because these two are getting married on Friday!

The flowers in Millennium Park are particularly beautiful this year.

In the middle of shooting, this little guy joined us. He walked right into their photo!
