Alison + Brandon met in college. Alison played basketball, and Brandon was her off-season trainer. I assume there was always a little crush there ūüėČ because Alison says that as soon as Brandon stopped running their workouts, he asked her if she wanted to hangout! Maybe he always knew, maybe he didn’t. But fast-forward to a New York trip and a surprise private garden proposal later – Brandon and Alison started planning¬†the rest of their lives together. Alison + Brandon, you two are one¬†of my favorites. You were both so sweet, caring, and treated us like we were friends or family. That is something that doesn’t go unnoticed and is DEFINITELY appreciated. You are attentive to each other, so much fun to be around, and your friends and family love you both – that is clear. Thank you for hiring us to be there to¬†photograph your wedding day. The memories in these photos are documented forever, and we’re so happy you get to enjoy them for the rest of your lives! All my best to you both ūüôā

Christine + Tom met at a friend’s surprise party in September of 2012. Their wedding day was a few weeks ago on a perfect Saturday in Chicago. Aside from being excited to marry¬†her love, Christine was super excited about all of her little details. The floral decor at the reception, the cake from Amy Beck, and especially the sparkler send off at the end. And I think it all turned out beautifully. It was a stunning day – exactly what Christine + Tom had envisioned. Liven It Up Events and A Stem Above put it all together and¬†made it work without a glitch. Congratulations to the newlyweds – thank you for being the sweetest to work with – and for envisioning pretty, pretty details that came to life for me to photograph – so much fun!!

Alex and Meghan’s love first began over their love for accounting. The two first met as audit interns at Deloitte during the summer of 2009. While each of them thought the other one was cute, it was not until 4 years later would they begin dating. It all began with the help of their friend who asked Meghan to come out with her to meet Alex and his friends. Meghan did not hesitate, recalling Alex as being really smart and handsome. The two met out at El Hefe, a bar they vow never return to, and instantly made a connection, chatting the night away. Since that night, Alex and Meghan have road-tripped across Canada, experienced ramen in Kyoto, Japan, and survived Hilda and Marcos Carbajal’s wedding in Michoacan, Mexico. Alex even incorporated all the selfies they’ve taken on their adventures together during his proposal!

Alex + Meghan’s wedding was definitely one for the books. Everything was just beautiful, with every little detail worked out by Lindsay Mackey of Simply Elegant Group. The Skyline Loft at Bridgeport Art Center looked stunning with personalized flags custom created by Art of Imagination. From the delicate florals to the farmhouse tables, the day was just perfect. Meghan + Alex’s love for each other was so apparent that I couldn’t stop taking pictures. I felt it with them. And the pictures show it. Congratulations to the new Mr. and Mrs. Corral –¬†may all your adventures continue into your new life together ūüôā

Melissa + Austin met TEN YEARS ago at Indiana University, so this one has been in the making for quite some time now ūüôā They were most excited to spend the day with their ‘people’ – their closest friends and family all surrounding them while they promised to spend the rest of their lives together. The whole day was spent at¬†The Langham Chicago – perfectly coordinated by Anthony Navarro of¬†Liven it Up Events. Cheers to Melissa + Austin, I hope you’re having the BEST time in Australia/New Zealand right now – I cannot wait to see YOUR pics. Until then, here are some of my favorite pics from your wedding!

First they were rivals. Then it was love at first sight. Daniella + Chris worked at opposing¬†businesses in Chicago, but their love unknowingly started there. When Daniella left her company and started a new position, she became a client of Chris’.¬†One day, at a casual meet and greet type meeting, she saw¬†Chris. And that was it. It was love at first sight for her. She even went home and told her mom that she had met the man she was going to marry. A few months later, Daniella and Chris ended up being co-workers and their friendship began – which quickly turned into love.

Fast forward to Daniella’s 30th birthday, and Chris has the perfect idea for her. He planned a surprise getaway to California – where he surprised Daniella with a house to stay at on Billionaire’s Beach, a private tour of the Friends Central Perk set (Daniella is a HUGE Friend’s fan), and just as they were finishing up acting out a scene on the famous Friends couch – he got down on one knee and proposed. Daniella + Chris, I love the story of your proposal – and even how it carried into the wedding day with the Blu-ray set of Friends gift from Chris. You two are so sweet and I’m so happy I got to know you guys on this little journey. Thanks for being so amazing to work with – I hope you have the best life together!

i first met crystal + carlos back in 2015 during their engagement session. we had a fantastic time at the lincoln park south pond, but they ended up hiring a larger photography company to shoot their wedding because it made more sense for them at the time (no hard feelings at all, I promise!). fast forward to after their wedding day – they weren’t happy with the photos. so they reached out to me wondering if I could re-take their wedding portraits, and I happily said OF COURSE! crystal + carlos, I’m so incredibly sorry that you weren’t happy with your wedding photographer, but I hope that my photos captured everything and more of what you envisioned on your big day.

A True Tinder love story! Mara + Jason both right swiped, had their very first date, and got married exactly three years later to the day. They still hold the tradition of going back to Bar Louie every year for their anniversary. Another tradition they hold is taking a trip between their birthdays every year. Their first year together they took a trip to Brazil Рwhere they fell in love Рand the following year they went to Cuba Рwhere Jason proposed at sunset on the beach in Varadero.

Their wedding was a cold February day, but it was absolutely gorgeous. Bridgeport Art Center set the backdrop, and with the help of Fleur – it was stunning. Mara + Jason were the epitome of a happy couple – eager to do whatever the other wanted, excited to spend time with friends and family, making their way around the dance floor and greeting everyone with a smile, kiss, and a hug.¬†It was such a pleasure to be there with everyone – and we are so happy to have captured these moments for you. Mara + Jason, here’s to a life full of traveling, awesome dance moves, delicious food, and everything else that you’ve ever dreamt of – together. Congrats!

Even though Kim + Kyle both went to the University of Wisconsin La Crosse for 4 years, it wasn’t until PT school that the universe decided to bring them together. It was then that they discovered their numerous mutual friends – which made conversations feel like they’d known each other for years. After a car ride home following¬†an anatomy lab, Kim + Kyle soon realized just how much they had in common. After two years of classes, countless hours of studying, 32 weeks of internships all over the country, three ski trips, five northwoods vacations, three road trips to Florida and Colorado, four different apartments in Chicago, and one adorable puppy – that friendship turned into great love.

On December 22nd, 2015, Kyle surprised Kim at home after work with an apartment full of rose petals, romantic candles, their favorite song playing, and their puppy Randall dressed in a white bowtie as Kyle got down on one knee and asked Kim to marry him. That incredible moment brought us to these unforgettable moments from the wedding day. Kim + Kyle, the room was filled with love for you from floor to ceiling. It was an honor to see you surrounded by all of your favorite people – and how happy that made you both. Thank you for having us there on your special day – I hope these photos help you remember all the love forever.

Looking back through 2016 – I’m at a loss of words. Like most years, it was a whirlwind. I blinked and it was Christmas. I remember being at the mid-point of the season thinking, ‘okay – I have 10 weddings left.’ ¬†Then all of a sudden it was 3, 2, 1… and here we are. From my first wedding of the year with Christina + Jimmy to my last with Dani + Jim… so much has happened. I’ve already started working with my 2017 couples, too. Meeting with the newly engaged, planning for the wedding, shooting their engagement sessions… 2016 is over, and 2017 is officially on its way. But before I close the books, I had to recap some of my favorite moments of this incredible year.¬†Over 100,000 photos have been taken.¬†All of the¬†emotions have been felt. The tears, the laughs, the hugs, the smiles. The horrible dance moves, embarrassingly true speeches, and the wedding day surprises that make the best stories the next morning.

So many great memories have been made, and it amazes me every year that I was chosen, out of hundreds of perfectly capable photographers, to capture it all. It’s a humbling experience to revisit¬†all of this year’s weddings, to think about my awesome couples, and reminisce about the personal moments that I’ve been lucky enough to be a part of. These are some of my favorites – and it was nearly impossible¬†to narrow it down. Each and every one of my couples, both pictured and not pictured here, hold a very special place in my heart and I am so thankful to have been a part of your lives. Have a blessed and safe new year – and here’s to all the good things that 2017 will bring!

She gave him the wrong number, and now they’re married. Emily and Matt met during college at a friend’s place. After chatting it up the whole night, Emily accidentally¬†gave Matt the wrong number – leading Matt to call a random person! Luckily,¬†fate brought them together again to fix the little misstep, and¬†now they’re married! Matt asked Emily to marry him with the Chicago skyline in the background. He then surprised her with all of her family and closest friends to celebrate!

Emily + Matt, chose to spend their big day where their relationship bloomed. The ceremony took place on the gorgeous Notre Dame campus at the Basillica of the Sacred Heart – where we hopped along a few places on the quad and reminisced about memories from college. The cocktail and reception were at the amazing St. Joseph’s Farm – I could have shot there all day had the sun not been breathing down our backs – but what we got was absolutely beautiful and I couldn’t be happier to share these photos with Emily + Matt. Congrats to the happy newlyweds – enjoy your first holiday together as a married couple!
