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 […]

This gorgeous late-fall weather in Chicago has me so happy, especially when I get to walk around outdoors and photograph two people like Megan and Andrew!
