Engagement Session | Scott and Emily

Last week I had the chance to photograph engagement photos for Emily and Scott - who met during a photography class in college. We wandered around Chicago's beautiful Lincoln Park. If you follow me on Instagram, you might remember when I posted about this little oasis, and I instantly knew I wanted to photograph a couple here. So when Emily told me the general area she wanted to take photos, I could hardly wait to take them there. Thank you again for inviting me to document your happy occasion!

Recent Work / Lance & Jesse

Last Thursday I had the pleasure of shooting engagement photos for Lance and Jesse. It was a great day to capture the couple in Wicker Park for a bit before we headed to Black Dog Gelato, which is a neighborhood favorite for the couple. Aside from the delicious gelato, the shop boasted an awesome bright pink wall that made a great background! Lance & Jesse were so sweet and affectionate with each other, and it was a pleasure to be a little part of their exciting journey together.

Recent Work / Andy & Nicolette's Wedding

It has been a while since I last wrote about Andy and Nicolette's wedding, but I wanted to make sure I shared some of the other images I shot from their gorgeous wedding. I was so inspired by Nicolette's patience and calmness throughout the entire day, despite the fact that it started raining 10 minutes before the wedding was supposed to start! But alas, the rain cleared up, the ceremony was beautiful and the rest of the day was full of celebration, deep love, and adorable surprises that made me tear up a bit. It is  always inspiring to see a couple so genuinely in love with each other.

How awesome is this ring stand they made for the ring bearer? Andy and Nicolette did such a great job of incorporating fun, handmade details throughout the day, which made it so much more personal.

Current Work / Brad & Hannah

My buddy Brad and his stunning wife Hannah (seriously, look at that smile!) recently moved out to L.A., and before they left, I had the opportunity to photograph them in all their lovey bliss around Chicago so they could always remember home. These guys were so playful and natural, which made it a blast to photograph them! See for yourself how seriously adorable they are together.

This was the first time I played around with Visual Supply Co's Film Set, which made editing feel new and exciting, and also gave me options I never would have come up with on my own. I'm really enjoying using it so far!
