This Wilder Mansion engagement session was truly a dream for me. I great up in Elmhurst and spent my childhood lugging books in and out of this iconic white building… because it used to be Elmhurst Public Library! And so, when Jessica told me she was looking for somewhere that was clean and classic, we […]

Mayslake Peabody Estate was the perfect location for Lisa and Bryant’s engagement session! Even though things aren’t quite blooming in the Chicago area, the estate grounds are so beautiful, and the sun was OUT and gorgeous for their entire session! Give me creamy light, filtering through pine trees, and I’m so stinkin’ happy! Besides that, […]

This Cafe Brauer Chicago wedding was one for the books! You know what I love about Nicky and Ben? They’re obviously a beautiful couple, but they are also the most genuine people you’ll ever meet. These two tell it like it is, they wear their hearts on their sleeves, and they LOVE their friends and […]

When it comes to planning your wedding day, one thing I always encourage my couples to do is schedule 5-10 minutes during their reception for a quick break for some end-of-the-day portraits! Scheduling in these portraits will increase the number of portraits you get on your wedding day, while only taking up a minimal amount […]
