If you're looking for a perfect example of a truly enchanted evening, then Lindsay and Matt's wedding on October 4th, 2014 is your shining star. From the exquisite color palette of floral arrangements to the twinkling Edison bulbs draped amongst the rafters above, every detail of this special night brought with it its own magical quality. This rustic meets urban evening celebrated the marriage of two fun-loving Chicagoans while overlooking the city. Happy to have been a part of all the fun, we are glad to present to you their extended set of images!
We had the incredible experience this past Saturday of shooting Lindsay and Matt's wedding at City View Loft in Chicago, IL. The event was full of laughs and full of love and was a perfect display of urban meets vintage with their choice of an industrial loft space married with mason jar floral arrangements and chalkboard details hand-lettered by the bride herself. Lindsay and Matt said their "I do's" overlooking the city of Chicago amongst their closest friends and family. We are so pleased to share with you this preview of their special evening!

There is something so special about being able to tie your family roots into your wedding day and decor, as Molly and Derek did with their wedding on September 6th, 2014. Celebrating the day in their hometown of Chatsworth, IL at Molly's family home provided the perfect setting for them to share their love with family and friends. It seemed that every moment, we were discovering another element of family they had worked into their surroundings, both sharing memories of the past and their lives to come. Molly and Derek were married in the evening in the sun in the front yard of the beautiful victorian home pictured within. We were so happy to be a part of this celebration of love, and are pleased to share with you the extended set of images from this beautiful day.
Over the weekend we had the pleasure of shooting the wedding of Molly and Derek, a fun-loving Nashville couple who journeyed back to their hometown in Chatsworth, IL to tie the knot at Molly's parents' home. The sun draped the day in a vibrant, golden glow as they shared their vows amongst friends and family in the front yard, and a full moon presided over an evening full of dancing and wonderful food. We're so excited to share this preview of their wedding day with you!

You could not have asked for a more perfect day for a wedding than the day of Sarah and Michael's. The breeze flowed gently through the trees and the sun drenched the flower adorned trellis as Sarah and Michael read their vows overlooking a still lake on April 12th, 2014. Sarah repeatedly expressed her desire for a simple, elegant wedding to us over our various meetings, and the day was just that — simply beautiful. From the floral arrangements to the venue to her beautiful gown, the day was filled with a pure, relaxed genuineness. We found ourselves tearing up a bit as we witnessed their first look in the woods of Allerton Park, and as they read their vows on the Bowling Lawn. This was a truly special day, and we feel so honored to have been a part of it.
This past weekend we were fortunate enough to be able to shoot Sarah and Michael's wedding photos at Allerton Park in Monticello, IL. We were so excited to be able to be the ones capturing their special day — the sun was shining, the flowers were blooming, and there was a subtle breeze flowing through the trees. Here are some sneak peek photos from their happy day! More to come soon!

We had a great time over one of the weekends this March shooting a senior photo session with Taylor in Gilman, IL. Right when we greeted her we could tell it wouldn't be difficult to catch some awesome shots of this pretty lady. The session was very laid back and comfortable and we're so excited about the variety of portraits and lifestyle shots we were able to get for her. She had picked out some great outfits that really made these photos feel fresh and colorful — overall Taylor was so much fun to work with!! We'll be posting more pictures of Taylor's senior session later this week on our Facebook page.
This weekend we've had the wonderful opportunity to get out around the community and set up at some great halloween events. We had a great time seeing all the kids in their costumes at the Orpheum Children's Science Museum's Halloween Spooktakular this past Saturday, and we're excited to pass out some candy at the Savoy Rec Center tonight for their Trick or Treat Street event from 6-8pm. So come on out and get some candy if you're feeling the Halloween spirit! We'll have a table all set up with some of our work from product, lifestyle, and wedding shoots, and we'll have a bunch of yummy treats. See you there!

Recently we got the opportunity to snag some shots of a particularly lovely dip — the Green Pea Macarpone Dip, created and produced by Claudia Davis of All About Appetizers. She wanted us to get some pictures of some delectable appetizers featuring the Green Pea Mascarpone dip that kept with the same style of the brochure session we did earlier in the season.
Her wonderful concoctions can be found at the All About Appetizers tent at Farmer's Markets in Libertyville 7am- 1pm on Thursdays through Oct 17th, and Lake Bluff 7am- 12 noon on Fridays through Oct 11th.
Keep an eye out for these carefully crafted appetizers in her upcoming catering menu later this year!
We love doing these shoots of her food, because we are continuously enamored with styling and shooting (And eating!) food — we can't wait to do more!

On a late July afternoon we set about exploring Champaign-Urbana to take some lovely shots of Anna for her modeling portfolio. We chose to take advantage of the beautiful weather and get some awesome head shots and full length shots out by the waterfalls in Champaign. The bright red of her dress paired really nicely with the pure blue of the sky that day.
Later on we got some more variety in clothing and indoor locations at Lindsay's rental house the last week she had it. We love adding the texture of hardwood floors with... well, pretty much everything.
Overall, I think we got some great shots, and we hope she's really happy with them. What a beautiful day to be taking some beautiful shots of a beautiful model!
Here's to our first Sneak Peek! The extended set of images will be released on our facebook page in a few days.
