Scott & Katie

AS SEEN IN

An outdoor wedding downtown, with a ballroom reception that makes you feel as though you're still in nature. Too many luxe details to list, but you have to see their custom escort wall and I wish you could smell the amazing aroma of their wedding scent with a candle at every place setting.

KRISTIN AND JOE

Thirty guests in Guatemala. Only their closest family and friends that are family. I photographed this wedding on my fifth anniversary and the first toast at their reception was to Wil and I. I balled. This celebration is absolutely one of my all time favorites, but you'll have to click through to the blog to see the rooftop party they threw in Chicago the next month too.

KAYLA AND RYAN

AS SEEN IN

My favorite first look of all time. I still can't get over the way he looks at her. And the way they looked together on those stairs. The History Museum is one of my favorite venues to shoot and this couple knocked every detail out of the park.

Antonette & Bryan

A Wednesday wedding in Italy with a day trip to capri on Monday, exploring and rehearsal dinner on Tuesday.... I can't imagine any other way I'd rather spend a week! It was so hot you wanted to be in the water or in the shade drinking water, but these two make it look effortless.

Together for twelve years, this duo's day blew me away. It's the most beautiful hotel ceremony I've ever seen and then my jaw hit the floor when I walked in to photograph the ballroom. Greens to the ceiling and absolutely perfect lighting.

There's something so iconic about winter weddings in black and white. With Rachel in Oscar de la Renta and the portraits in Central Park in the snow... I could photograph this day over and over.

Katherine & Erik

This sweet couple lives and works in New York, and so opted to do their engagement session in Central Park. They selected the University Club of Chicago for the wedding and the grandiose ceilings, gorgeous stained glass windows, and architectural detail of Cathedral Hall set the perfect stage for their ceremony and reception.

Bianca & Bryen

AS SEEN IN

A wedding at a champagne bar with the reception inside my favorite speakeasy in Chicago...obviously these two are my people. I'd be remiss if I didn't mention Bianca's bouquet. Kelly Marie from Fleur absolutely killed it. One of my other favorite details was the invitation suite by Sarah Drake featuring their adorable pup!

The rainiest wedding day I've ever seen, but these two didn't let it dampen their spirits one bit. Even though we didn't make it outside for any photos, the bride brought the outdoors in with gorgeous greenery inspired by the Amalfi Coast.
