Exploring Chicago

My parents flew in from Maine last month for a week-long stay. Visits like this always give me a great excuse for exploring this fabulous city!

Kelly and Gabe

I had a blast shooting with Jill Wijangco at the Chicago Botanic Garden for Kelly and Gabe's wedding. Everything was beautifully planned and executed; so many wonderful details.

Kristin and Matt

I headed out to Elmhurst College for Kristin and Matt's wedding; a really great location! The chapel was easy to shoot in and there was tons of green space for portraits.

Kristin's mom was adorable.

Amy and Jeff

A fantastic wedding day! I worked with Johnny Borter on Amy and Jeff's wedding; they're a great couple and I had a blast with everyone the whole day.

Being with Amy right before the ceremony was priceless; she was so excited!

Amy's relationship with her family is obviously amazing: a moment shared with her mom moments before the ceremony.

...and with her dad.

Caitlin had such serious expressions all day that made for classic portraits.

I loved this wall at the country club.

A new experience for me: I was in the restroom when all these ladies requested a photo in front of the stalls. I loved it!


More cat photos! I visited my friend Sarah the other day and bonded with her cat, Annie.
