A beautiful start to spring here in Chicago! Just a glimpse into Sarah and Flaco’s emotional wedding day first look.

Personalized, emotional, wedding perfection - that’s how I like to describe Lisa and Alex’s late fall wedding. At every turn, I found the most heartfelt details - that Lisa had spent months imagining - come to life. From the cap-sleeved embroidered gown that seemed to be made only for her (but was actually a vintage consignment find!) to the couple’s intensely personalized vows, I felt truly honored to be capturing their day in photos. And I haven’t even mentioned the inspirational love quotes printed on the candles at the reception, the adorable vintage-styled bird cake topper, an emotional dance shared by Alex and his grandmother, or the choreographed salsa dance that the couple performed as a surprise to their guests! This wedding will stand as a forever-favorite of mine, held up by a solid foundation of intimate real moments mixed with pure prettiness.


My favorite image of the day - Lisa’s new grandmother-in-law’s reaction to seeing her in her dress!

Oh, this wedding! With so many happy moments, I had a smile on my face the entire day. Katlyn and Mitch were so excited to get married! And as soon as they had finished their vows, I got to capture moments like the one above on one of autumn’s most perfect days. They also had incredible golden light for their portraits before the reception - all because of Katlyn’s careful planning to account for the early November sunset. Congratulations, Katlyn and Mitch!


I just adore the ‘we’re married!’ moments immediately following the ceremony if a couple is able to sneak away while their guests exit the church. SO worth it for real moments like these, below!

It was such an honor to photograph Rebecca and Nick’s wedding in Nantucket. They could not have asked for a more perfect day - 70 degrees and sunny - and I could not have asked for a more kind, delightful couple to photograph. I loved that their day was all about the relaxed nature of the island. The ceremony took place at Ladies Beach, just down the street from Rebecca’s grandmother’s Nantucket vacation home, where the family has spent many a summer on the island. A small group of close friends and family gathered to celebrate with them that weekend. And since the wedding took place shortly after Labor Day, just outside of the busy tourist season, the island was even more relaxed than normal. Here are my favorite photos from their incredible day.
