Elizabeth & Andrew | Ruffled Feathers Golf Club

I love when friends & family of my previous couples choose me to photograph their wedding! I get to see familiar faces again and it just feels like a happy reunion. In 2017 I had the pleasure of photographing Julia & Timo’s French-Impressionist-inspired wedding. Their families were so kind and I loved documenting all the gorgeous details and special moments. So when Julia’s brother Andy reached out to me about photographing his big day - I was so happy.

You see, as much as I love my couples, there’s typically not much occasion for me to see them post-wedding - at least until there’s something else to celebrate (such as anniversaries or babies!). So working with a new, super sweet couple AND seeing a favorite former KKP couple - it’s a win win.

Beth & Andy’s wedding day was completely lovely - full of helping hands, sweet moments, and ice cream! Congratulations you two!

Samantha & Greg | Tapawingo National Golf Club Wedding in St. Louis

I’m not sure I believe that everything is fated, but I do think some things are just meant to be - like Sam & Greg - and like my time spent living in St. Louis. If I hadn’t moved there I definitely wouldn’t have had the pleasure of meeting these two. Even though I’ve since moved back to Chicago - I am so glad that I did move to St. Louis - and I did meet Sam & Greg.

Driving back to photograph their wedding filled me with feelings of nostalgia and excitement. I had the privilege of connecting with my STL friends again and capturing all the special moments of Sam & Greg’s wedding day - all in one awesome weekend. When I think back on it all, I can’t help but feel like everything has fallen into place just as it should.

Just like this wedding day… the rain cleared up just in time, frozen custard was enjoyed, and Sam & Greg promised to love each other forever. What more could you ask for?!

Here are some of my favorite photographs from the day…

Congratulations Sam & Greg! I wish many, many years of love and friendship for you two!

Claire & Scotty | Creek Bend Nature Center Wedding

May in the Chicagoland area has been -essentially - a ton of rain, with a few gorgeous sunny days. Luckily for Claire & Scotty their wedding day weather was completely perfect! I noticed how all their friends and family played a part in bringing it all together. It was definitely a team effort to create the perfect celebration for Claire & Scotty. I also noticed the HUGE smiles on their faces for the whole day! They just looked so incredibly excited that the day was finally here. It was a whirlwind - as most weddings are - but it was filled with the best things: sunshine, connections, celebration, ice cream, and love. Congratulations Claire & Scotty!! Here’s to many more years of love!
