Taliah & Cordero | Chicago, IL Wedding

Today I’m sharing some favorites from Taliah & Cordero’s wedding day! These two followed their hearts and planned an intimate Chicago wedding. Each couple - each love - is unique. So why should every wedding have the same rules? Sometimes a small gathering of your most cherished loved ones is the way to go. That was what felt right to Taliah & Coredero - and they did it! As they looked into each others eyes and exchanged vows, I could feel the weight of the moment - it was so very clear that these two share a special love. Congratulations to Taliah & Cordero! Cheers to many years of love.

Claire & Scotty | Engaged!

I am so happy that Claire & Scotty found me through a previous bride of mine! They are just so genuinely themselves, nice and easy going. I remember feeling so grateful that they shared their authentic selves with me during the session. Trust is a big part of what I do if you think about it. I need my couples to feel comfortable enough to be themselves in front of my camera. It’s always heartwarming and exciting when people trust me with the task of documenting a special time in their lives. That feeling never goes away, no matter how many celebrations, engagements, or weddings I shoot. For Claire & Scotty’s engagement session we chose a beautiful park along the Fox River. They love to be outdoors and make use of their canoe - which of course they brought to the session! I always tell my couples “I want these photos to feel true to you” - so I love when we can incorporate activities that they love to do together in their every day life. I had such a nice time in the woods making these photographs of Claire & Scotty. We even got lucky with a gorgeous blanket of fresh snow. I’m looking forward to their wedding in May!

Amber & Kevin | Married!

When Amber and Kevin told me they love craft beer and David Bowie - I knew I was meant to be their photographer!! These two have amazing taste and are just so easy going, it made for a great wedding day. Every detail was classy and a bit flashy, from Amber's classic birdcage to Kevin's gold shoes - it was all fantastic and totally them. And that's what I believe a wedding day should be - 100% true to you and everything you want it to be. To Amber and Kevin I say congratulations! It was a pleasure, please renew your vows someday so we can do it all again!
