Julia and Tony // Bucktown Engagement // Chicago Wedding Photographers
Julia and Tony love living in the Bucktown/Wicker Park area of Chicago. They also got engaged at The Robey so it was the obvious place to do their engagement photos. One of the best parts of doing engagement shoots is being able to walk around with our amazing couples and get to know them as friends rather than just as clients. Julia and Tony were a dream to work with and we shared stories and laughed the whole time. It was great getting to know these two and I can't wait for their wedding later this year.

Karen + Jeff | Ravenswood Event Center Wedding | Chicago Wedding Photographer
Karen and Jeff's wedding at the Ravenswood Event Center was elegant, modern, and full of love. The day began at their home in Lincoln Square where Karen got ready surrounded by family and friends. The atmosphere was serene but full of happiness and anticipation. Karen streamed tears of joy as she prepared to see Jeff at their first look. When they saw each other, they were so full of joy! For their portraits we walked the short distance over to the gorgeous Winnemac Park. With its weeping willows and gorgeous meadows, the park was the perfect place to get some amazing shots. We then wandered around Ravenswood and North Center and shot in some ...

Henington Christmas 2017 // Chicago Wedding Photographer
This Christmas we did something a little different. Normally on Christmas day we go to Larissa's grandmother's house for Christmas, but this year the whole family decided to travel to Ris' uncle and aunt's place in Melbourne, FL. Our east coast journey across the state was great and the boys slept half the way. Once we got there, the Christmas festivities began with an incredible lunch of homemade focaccia bread sandwiches and other yummy treats. For Christmas eve dinner we had Beef Wellington (Jay's first time having it) and the fanciest mashed potatoes we've ever seen. It was as good as it sounds! The dinner was off the charts amazing and t ...

Lydia + John-Mark // Wicker Park Engagement // Chicago Wedding Photographer
I met Lydia and John-Mark where they first met, in front of their old apartments in Wicker Park, Chicago. Lydia lived directly under John-Mark's apartment and they saw each other regularly, but it took a while before they started dating. Once they did, it was love! I'm so glad that they did because they are two awesome people. We started our Wicker Park engagement shoot at their first apartment and moved from there to six corners, the Damen "L" station, and eventually to the top of The Robey, one of the coolest rooftop spots in Chicago. It was so fun hanging out with these two, capturing some awesome photos, and I can't wait for their wedding ...

Karen + Jeff | Adler Planetarium Engagement | Chicago Wedding Photographer
Karen and Jeff are two of the kindest people I've ever met. From the moment we first met up they were just full of joy and open for whatever crazy ideas I suggested (even standing in front of giant waves coming from Lake Michigan). We met up at the Adler Planetarium in Chicago for their engagement shoot and laughed and had a blast the whole time. Karen has an infectious smile (as you'll see in the photos). Jeff is a laid back guy whose loves for Karen is so evident. I definitely can't wait for their wedding in Ravenswood this October.
Check out some of my favorite shots from their shoot:

Maura + Chris | Chicago Couples Shoot | Chicago Wedding Photographer
I've been best friends with Chris since we were 9. Growing up in Tampa, Florida we did everything together. From sleepovers in the summer, hockey in the streets, to summer trips to Michigan we literally were together every second we could be. He is more of a brother to me than a best friend. That's why when I first heard about Maura, I was so excited for Chris. When I first met her she greeted me with a huge hug and I felt like I'd known her my whole life. I couldn't be happier for the two of them. I was lucky enough recently to do a little photo shoot with these two. Here are some of my favorites from our shoot.

Morgan + Matthew | Andrews Memorial Chapel Wedding | Chicago & Tampa Wedding Photographer
Morgan and Matt were married at Andrews Memorial Chapel in Dunedin, Florida on New Years Eve. We love New Years weddings because the parties is always off the hook. Morgan and Matt's wedding didn't disappoint! We began the day at Innisbrook Resort in Palm Harbor which is one of the most beautiful spots for photos in Tampa Bay. Then their wedding ceremony at Andrews Memorial Chapel was intimate and touching. Finally, the party at Harbor Hall featured some crazy dancing, karaoke and some of our favorite moments ushering in New Years ever.
Awesome vendors we worked with:
