I was obsessed with these blush details! 2015-06-08_0003.jpg

That dress!! It goes in my favorite wedding dresses I have photographed category:) 2015-06-08_0004.jpg2015-06-08_0005.jpg2015-06-08_0006.jpg2015-06-08_0007.jpg2015-06-08_0008.jpg2015-06-08_0009.jpg2015-06-08_0010.jpg2015-06-08_0011.jpg2015-06-08_0013.jpg2015-06-08_0014.jpg2015-06-08_0015.jpg2015-06-08_0016.jpg

Monet you are stunning!!! You made my job so easy! 2015-06-08_0017.jpg2015-06-08_0018.jpg

The weather was not on our side this day. During the first look it was lightly sprinkling and I love that they still chose to do it outside! 2015-06-08_0019.jpg2015-06-08_0020.jpg2015-06-08_0021.jpg2015-06-08_0022.jpg2015-06-08_0023.jpg

I have noticed that first look hugs are always so meaningful. Look how content she is in his arms! 2015-06-08_0024.jpg2015-06-08_0025.jpg2015-06-08_0026.jpg2015-06-08_0028.jpg

The rain started pouring after this which was not to our advantage! Luckily we found this little room which worked out so well for portraits! 2015-06-08_0029.jpg

So elegant!!! 2015-06-08_0030.jpg2015-06-08_0031.jpg2015-06-08_0032.jpg2015-06-08_0033.jpg2015-06-08_0034.jpg2015-06-08_0035.jpg2015-06-08_0036.jpg2015-06-08_0037.jpg2015-06-08_0039.jpg2015-06-08_0038.jpg

Aw love these ladies! 2015-06-08_0040.jpg2015-06-08_0041.jpg2015-06-08_0042.jpg

Remember Heather on the left? She is one of my past brides turned friends and I ADORE her!2015-06-08_0043.jpg2015-06-08_0055.jpg2015-06-08_0056.jpg2015-06-08_0057.jpg2015-06-08_0058.jpg2015-06-08_0059.jpg

On to the reception! I loved their details so much! 2015-06-08_0044.jpg2015-06-08_0045.jpg2015-06-08_0047.jpg2015-06-08_0048.jpg

Isn’t this just perfect for an intimate wedding?!2015-06-08_0049.jpg2015-06-08_0051.jpg2015-06-08_0052.jpg2015-06-08_0053.jpg2015-06-08_0054.jpg2015-06-08_0089.jpg2015-06-08_0090.jpg

I love these two! Sometimes during weddings, I spot couples who are just adorable! They have a blast together and are constantly laughing. Aysha (my 2nd photographer) and I were constantly looking at each other say awww when we saw them together! 2015-06-08_0075.jpg2015-06-08_0076.jpg2015-06-08_0077.jpg2015-06-08_0067.jpg2015-06-08_0068.jpg2015-06-08_0069.jpg2015-06-08_0070.jpg2015-06-08_0071.jpg2015-06-08_0072.jpg

Patrick & Stephanie ::: Randall Oaks Golf Club Wedding Dundee, Illinois Photographer

I met these two in a way that only God can orchestrate. It was on my birthday last year when I was out to dinner with friends. We see this couple that are overjoyed walked by and one of my friends asked if they just got engaged. The came over to talk to us and we heard a bit about the proposal that had just happened moments before! And we mentioned that it just so happened I was a wedding photographer and the rest is history. I had the honor of documenting their big day this past Saturday and it was so beautiful!

Kyle & Krystal ::: Downtown St. Charles Engagement Photographer

I met Krystal recently at a Natasha & Ron’s wedding in January! She was the maid of honor and right away, I loved her. Then my first impression of Kyle was on the dance floor that night:)And it was amazing! He has some impressive moves. Seriously, these two have so much fun on the dance floor and right away I knew I had to be friends with them. Then they booked me for their wedding in September and I was over the moon! I love how photography connects people like that!

Ok this is our little joke that I will let you in on. When I met them at the wedding, Kyle insisted on a photo of Krystal dipping him. It ended up being a hilarious moment because she is half his size! So for laughs we had to recreate it:)

Joe & Chloe ::: Wheaton Engagement Photographer Catigny Park

If there is a single person who I can give credit for the most referrals, it would be my sweet friend Tegan. This girl has connected me to so many couples and I am so thankful for that! She talks me up to every person she knows and I couldn’t ask for a better friend! Chloe and Tegan became close friends in grad school at Wheaton College. They also just graduated which I am so proud of! I have heard a lot about her friends there, so when Chloe contacted me for engagement photos, I was so excited. We met at Catigny Park and I loved them immediately. You see, I am known for being a bit awkward and weird but I found out Chloe can be too and didn’t judge me one bit:)and she loves pizza! So fast friends we became! I am sad that I won’t be able to be there for their wedding but I am so glad I got to spend the evening getting to know these two!

This was one of our first shots and I was freaking out with how perfect it was!
