The summer has passed, and I’m left wondering where it went!? Even with many months of us being quarantined, or in general many places were and still are still not open like they normally would be – how even with all of that, did the year fly by at an even faster pace?!? It is […]

I think we can agree that over the summer (in this year, 2020) life was pretty crazy! Between non-stop wedding postponements, and finding ways to still work while in the midst of inconsistent restrictions, and an actual pandemic – I received one of the happiest emails I had seen in months! Devin first reached out […]

Serena and Ryan’s McDowell Mountain Elopement has marked the very last wedding we have done this year – so far. That was in March!! Hopefully it won’t be the last for 2020, but only time will tell. I haven’t posted much since then, really on any of our social media outlets. Mostly because the world […]

Guys!! What a wild ride 2020 has been. On March 15th, when the CDC put out their recommendations on event sizes no larger than 50, we were devastated. We had multiple weddings for the following weekend, and we went into an immediate scramble to reach out to all of our couples for the month of […]

I have officially brought the blog back to 2020 (congratulations to me), with Ali + Jame’s Laguna Beach engagement session! We literally kicked off our year with these two, and they are just as sweet and fun as they look! Oh, and also I will retire out here one day. I have maintained that the […]

I’m so excited to share every single one of my blogs, but Kara and Charlie’s Chicago engagement session makes it to the top. Here’s why: They lived in Chicago at the time of this session, but have since moved to Arizona and are having their wedding here in Arizona at one of my all time […]

Mackenzie + Roy’s Lincoln Park engagement session embodies every reason couples gravitate toward the area for photos. This afternoon was absolute magic, and we had so much fun together! I knew Mackenzie, and I were going to get along splendidly when she told me during our initial consult that she was an interior designer. Side […]

Niki and Peter’s gorgeously overcast Chicago engagement session is seriously one of my favorites from 2019. Yes, I said 2019. Yikes! I mentioned before in previous blogs how I need to share more, and one area that really needs exposure is our engagement session travels. We mostly work with couples who book us for weddings, […]

I am so excited to share Sarah + Danny’s Merry-Go-Round engagement session! We do engagement sessions with most of our couples that book for weddings, but I don’t often share the photos! I feel as though that must change, because they are truly some of my favorite!! Sarah + Danny’s El Chorro wedding is coming […]

We just sent off Nicole + Joseph’s album from their wedding at The Paseo this week, and I honestly can not get over how gorgeous this entire day was! I knew Nicole, and I were the perfect pair when during her consult she let me know just how important photography was to her and that […]
