Daina and Ryan

Daina and Ryan married in what may be the most beautiful ceremony location I’ve ever shot: Oak Brook’s Bath and Tennis Club. The weather, the light and the bride were all GORGEOUS! Driving to the ceremony, I noticed a little patch of wildflowers on the side of the road and thought how amazing it would be to shoot there after the wedding. When it came time for the couple’s portraits, they were TOTALLY up for it. I love it when a couple is willing to go above and beyond for their photos. So, we hopped in the car and Ryan’s father kindly drove us to the spot. And, well, I think it was totally worth it.

When I first showed up, I saw this arrangement of all Daina’s wedding things and loved it:

Another shot of the fabulous shoes:

I love the moment when brides see themselves all done up for this first time:

Told you. GORGEOUS:

Yes. ANOTHER shoe shot. Get over it.

LOVE this light:

SO happy to be married:

Could decide which I liked better. So, I’ll post two:

While we were taking photos with the gals, we told the guys that they had a break. Of course, we look over and they had found a giant rock to play with.

Love all of these:
