The only word to describe this wedding is: STUNNING! Everything about this day was beautiful. The couple, the florals, the design, the venue, the dress. It. Was. Spectacular! I love how they leaned into the color blue for their florals and how they dressed the venue with colorful flowers coming in from the ceiling over their dance floor. Cassandra and Vinni also couldn’t have been more kind and laid back. What a dream, right?! My associate Malorie did such a beautiful job capturing their day. Enjoy!
I enjoy nothing more than exploring a new city for engagement photos! The challenge and the adventure that comes from shooting in a place I’ve never been leads to so much variety and creativity. I traveled to Chicago for Michael and Sam’s engagement photos which is where they both currently live and where Michael grew up. Michael is from the north suburbs of Chicago and his mom helped by giving us a few ideas of locations with pretty architecture. We started at the Kenilworth Union Church, taking photos by the beautiful stone building and getting pockets of blooming floral trees. Our next destination was Gillson Beach, but on the way we passed by the stunning Baha’i Temple and were blown away by its beauty and had to make a stop! We ended our session at sunset at the beach. The sand dunes made me feel like I was shooting in Nantucket rather than Chicago. It was such a well-rounded engagement session with so much variety! I’ll always look back at this session and smile.
Stevie is here and is so loved. This is the perfect example of being able to do a beautiful in-home newborn session even if you don’t have a nursery set up for your little one or if your nursery doesn’t have good natural light. These dreamy photos of little Stevie on her parent’s bed and in a changing basket are so lovely, dainty and sweet. This newborn session was so special because it’s for my clients Hannah and Clint. I’ve photographed them many times throughout the years – their engagement session in Duluth, their intimate family-only wedding during the height of covid, their large wedding celebration, pregnancy announcement, maternity, and more. What an honor to be able to capture this stage of life for them.
