Terri and Adam – what can I say?! Incredible energy and just plain FUN! Remember their urban engagement session here? It’s not often that I hope for snow in Chicago but this time I begged mother nature and nada. At least my flight to Chicago was without delay, but it was sad to see all the snow from Snowpocalypse melted. It’s not everyday you have a couple that wants to play in the snow on their wedding day :) So instead we threw confetti, enjoyed Montrose Harbor and continued our adventure in the nooks and crannies of Architectural Artifacts antiques! Thank you Amy for your creative eye. Now let’s dive into this periwinkle blue and red color goodness wedding! (more…)

Oh dear, cuteness. Little Baby Emme made my heart melt the second I flew into Chicago last week. Remember Liz & Mike? I had the pleasure of photographing their first little one (not even 2 weeks old!), and she made quite the impression on me. Her home was filled with love and peace…such a delight. She’s going to grow up with incredible family surrounding her. During our session, we laughed together, cried a bit, ate a little and slept most of it :) Cheers! (more…)

Happy almost weekend! You remember Kristen and Gene’s Sunday Stroll? Their recent and lovely downtown Chicago wedding was a classic elegance with a hint of retro. Thankfully, the big chance of rain never happened (thanks mother nature!) but the wind gusts took over. But if that was our biggest challenge, fashion wind with a plush veil…well I’ll take it! Super sweet couple with incredible charm! Big thanks to my right-hand photo lady Amy. Enjoy the sneak! (more…)

Hannah & Chris’s Just Married Session Down Memory Lane

As promised, a sneak peek of Hannah & Chris’s just married session! Busy bees planning a wedding and trying to coordinate travel, we decided that instead of an engagement session that a just married session would be just as fabulous! The best part was that it also served as a tour of their favorites spots to hang out growing up. I feel privileged to become invited to share these memories with my couples. Ahhh, the gushies. Alright, enough chat! Follow me to their favorite teen hangout (they both hung out there but didn’t know it!), her father’s labor of love and a popular chit-chat spot for best friends. (more…)

What do you get with a Midwestern couple living in LA and owning a music licensing shop called Ghost Town? FUN! What do you get with a Chicagoland childhood, hanging out in the same circle of friends growing up but not knowing it? Sweet Hannah and Chris love. It may have taken years for them to find each other right under their noses but it seems as if they’ve known each other for a lifetime already. This is a doozy of a sneak peek, so much so that their Just Married session will be a separate feature this week! Also, a big thank you to my right-hand photo woman Jessie. Enjoy this Chicago wedding sneak peek story… (more…)

Chicago,Edyta's Real Love Shoots — Edyta @ 10:10 AM

Today I bring you Kristen and Gene! Super sweet and mellow couple. You could say their engagement session was a normal Sunday morning theme; walking the dog, grabbing coffee and exploring their family-friendly neighborhood all in the quiet that is Sunday morning. The best part was discovering spots they didn’t even know about like all the incredible vegetation inside the children’s community garden (including finding a school desk prop!!). Enjoy the sneak peek! (more…)

Wow, it’s Wednesday already! Headed out-of-state again tomorrow for another wedding this weekend. I’m just all over the place! Denise and Dave – what a couple of love birds on their magical day. The midwest locusts hummed all day & night and families were as happy as can be. I was smitten with the whole day – their 1800’s Chicagoland home, handmade decor details, absolutely photogenic couple (although they were worried about being awkward in front of the camera!) and lively guests. I’m going to stop chatting away and let you know that you’ll need 2 cups of coffee for these images ;) Enjoy the sneak peek! (more…)

Get ready for this sneak peek folks! Not only did I have a wedding in the good ole Midwest but also an engagement session. How in the world did Terri, Adam and I manage to get all these amazing shots in 1.5 hours while having an absolute blast running around Chicago?! The stars must have aligned for us…even the rain gods. We were prop crazy, love crazy and on a mission! So grab your morning coffees for this one! Can I say how incredibly awesome it was to run into a Tina Turner impersonator?! Sassy. (more…)
