emily + stephan: married.

I absolutely loved working with Emily and Stephan. They had a great sense of humor and had fun with the small details of the day. Emily DIY’d alot of the wedding herself, and everything looked impeccable. Emily looked so beautiful, and Stephan looked pretty dapper himself.  They were married at Kitchen, which meant we could take photos in the west loop area, which is my absolute favorite. It was a hot and steamy day, but these two took it like a champ and were a blast to work with! I wish them all the best!

loren and brian: married.

I am so honored to have photographed the BEAUTIFUL marriage of loren and brian on saturday. They had a lovely ceremony at the Immanuel Lutheran Evangelical Church in Edgewater, surrounded by family and friends. It was filled with so much love and emotion. Brian surprised loren (and all of us!) and performed “all of me” by John Legend. It was amazing, and if you weren’t crying during it, you were definitely smiling ear to ear. After the ceremony we stopped by Loren and Brian’s place to feed the kitties before heading over to the Ravenswood Event center (in the pouring rain!) for a southern feast and some dancing. It was a magical evening – So happy to be reconnect with loren and be part of this day!
