callie & mikey.

these two. we kinda like them. ๐Ÿ™‚

we had the GREAT pleasure of meeting up with callie & mikey just a few weeks ago and get some FUN images of them in the city they love and call home…CHICAGO!

these two know how to laugh and get each other to laugh…what’s better than that?!

these are some of our favorites from our time with them. YAY!


l. & r.

we were lucky to find some pretty fun little spots while exploring with them…

i loved this space, right across from the lincoln park zoo.

the chicago historical society

we also made our way to the waterfront…it’s close to where mikey proposed to callie, so it’s all the more special to them! these images of them are some of our favorites from the day…the city, the blue water, them laughing…such a happy vibe.

these two tied the knot last weekend, what a PARTY they had! stay tuned for their wedding images soon! ๐Ÿ™‚

abby & alex. the wedding.

oh…this is good one you guys. get comfy, there are a lot of images.


may we present to you all the absolutely fantastic and LOVELY abby & alex.

they got married and then had a BIG OL’ party at her parents’ house.

i say “party”, but it was really about the prettiest reception party we’ve ever seen. no detail was overlooked and it didn’t feel like we were even under a tent, but rather, in a wonderfully beautiful garden filled with flowers and twinkling lights.

their friends were fun, their families were fun, the band that played was fun, the list goes on and on.

abby & alex, we wish nothing but love and happiness…thanks for allowing us to be a part of your day!


l. & r.

abby and her girls started the day at her parents house…a little coffee and some fancy hair.

smile, ladies!

the boys ate some chipotle and hung out before they headed over to the church.

i love getting ready shots like this…hands all up in the air. it’s really an “all hands” on deck situation most times. ๐Ÿ™‚

moments like these are why i love being a photographer so much. t-minus 1 minute.

yay! mr. & mrs. ๐Ÿ™‚

all of this portrait magic took place only a few hundred feet from the reception on her parents’ beautiful property. the light was pretty great.

look at how CUTE these two are?! i love these two portraits of each of them so much! ๐Ÿ™‚

fun. their last name is berry.

here are just a few of the amazing details that were part of the day. the tables, the fern leaves and twine…everything was so pretty.


how great is his smile?! ๐Ÿ™‚

i think everyone also found out a little something about the new mrs. that they might not have known before…this girl can SING. and when i say sing, i mean sing every word to r. kelly’s “ignition (remix). every word.


jane & matt.

there really is nothing better than seeing two people who are just crazy about each other.

meet jane & matt…two such people.

we spent a lovely afternoon with them in cincinnati, ohio (what a FUN CITY!)

these two were just about two of the happiest people we’ve ever been around…can’t you tell they just adore one another? ๐Ÿ™‚

can’t wait until there big day. we have a feeling it’s going to be perfect.

here’s to jane, matt and LOVE!


l. & r.

p.s. jane JUST graduated from medical school the day before we photographed them, how great is that?! congrats again, DR.! ๐Ÿ™‚

we found some great alley’s and spots all along the way.

we also found this purple monster wall. nicely done, cincinnati.

FAVORITE shot of the day!

we ended in the fountain. fun, right?
