Scheduling in these portraits will increase the number of portraits you get on your wedding day, while only taking up a minimal amount […]

I remember the first time I chatted with Amanda and Mike on the phone about their June 2022 wedding! I was sitting on our back deck, listening to the crickets chirp on a warm evening back in May as they two of them talked about what they had dreamed up for their wedding day… and […]

Megan and Ryan met online (yay!!) two years ago, and they fell for each other FAST! Last summer, Megan’s Uncle Marty married them in a park — just the three of them were present, and it was simple and beautiful! And even though elopements and micro-weddings are all the rage, I’m so glad Megan and […]

Caitlin and Garrett get married in less than a MONTH! But we did their engagement session back in September, on a rainy, cloudy evening near the Naperville Riverwalk! Because of some special circumstances, we decided on a quick “mini session,” just to capture this brief, sweet time before they get married!! As we were driving […]
