Ann & Dan | Cafe Brauer Wedding Photographer

this one was a dream to shoot ya'll. it was one of those days that i looked around me and realized that ann & dan were doing me a favor by hiring me to photograph their day. rich with classic elements, with a ceremony in one of the most spectacular cathedrals in chicago and a reception at one of the city's most killer venues that i've been dying to photograph in - cafe brauer. 

all of that was simply icing on the cake. working with ann & dan, getting to know them, and documenting their day was truly a privilege. a rockin power couple with two of the the gosh-darn biggest hearts i've ever met. their day will always be such a special one to me and a testament to the kind of beautiful day a great love can create.

Nina & Andrew | Four Seasons Kona Hawaii Wedding

they found my work and asked if i'd be up for shooting their engagement session. we met at golden gardens in seattle and it was love at first photo. the fun simply couldn't end there. they hesitated in asking if i would fly to hawaii to photograph their wedding because they weren't sure i'd travel that far. me? i thought they'd never ask. i just knew it was going to be the most gorgeous celebration. i've said it before and i'll say it again - intimate weddings get me every time. i love photographing small weddings like these every now and then. they are always peaceful, breezy, and refreshing affairs. nina & andrew's wedding at the four seasons in kona, hawaii was no different.

my couples are, of course, always extremely happy on their wedding days. but these two, they were beaming. they made my job far too easy. every time i turned around they were lost in happiness together, inviting everyone into their joy. 

their day was it was the biggest treat for me to travel to and photograph. it was the dreamiest of days. i mean, look at it. congratulations, you two!

Heather & Brian | Ravenswood Event Center Photographer

these two have got to be two of the kindest souls i've ever worked with. their day was as easy and breezy as them, on the perfect early summer's day in chicago. i know every groom fawns after his bride on their wedding day, but brian has got to set some kind of standard for showing his affection for his bride in the most adorable ways. the love these two have for each other was so apparent throughout their day. it was my honor to capture every blissful moment with ravenswood event center as the perfect backdrop for a stellar celebration.
