There's really no words for how great this wedding was. I'll let the pictures speak for themselves.
One of my favorite parts of this job is getting to meet new people. A couple weekends ago, I had the pleasure of photographing Rob and Christen for their engagement session out at Rock Cut State Park just outside of Rockford Illinois. I had known a little about this couple through our mutual friends Kris and Nora, but after our 2 and a half hour photo shoot, I really felt as if I had just added two new great friends to my life. The love and admiration these two had for each other really electrified the photo shoot and I could not have been happier with the results. I look forward to getting to know more about these two leading up to their wedding next Summer.
Despite the chilly weather, the fall colors are absolutely stunning right now in the Midwest. I was lucky to get outside with a fantastic family, and an incredible couple. Both these shoots were really inspiring to me and I wanted to share a picture from each. More will follow in the next week or so.
I've had the pleasure of knowing Erica for a long time and one thing has always been very evident, her love and admiration for Andy. I had the unfortunate pleasure of sitting near Erica at work, and had to listen to months of her trying to figure out when Andy was going to pop the question. Thankfully, for all parties involved, Andy proposed to Erica and we get to see this great couple grow old together. I wish nothing but happiness for years to come to this amazing couple.
A little rain couldn't stop this couple from having an amazing wedding day. The amount of love and laughter that filled their ballroom on their wedding night let me know that this couple has surrounded themselves with the best family and friends anyone could ever ask for. Congratulations to Laura and Anton!
Most of you will see this post and think, "Isn't this old?" The answer is yes. The answer is an embarrassing yes. I was doing a little clean up in my photo folders and realized I never submitted this blog post back in the fall. So here it is, a beautiful Autumn engagement photo shoot being posted in the middle of Spring!
One of the best parts of this job is the places it takes me too. As a lifelong Chicagoan, I'm sad to say I had never stepped foot inside the Chicago Cultural Center or the Chicago Yacht Club. But that all changed during this amazing photo shoot with Rachel and Avi. I'm now anxious for my next trip down to the city, with the focal point being a large amount of time spent photographing the gorgeous ballrooms of the Chicago Cultural Center. Thank you to Rachel and Avi for giving me this opportunity to photograph you two. You guys were amazing to work with.
As an avid dog lover, I was so excited when Hannah and Eugene brought up the idea of including their puppy in their engagement session. This shoot was was too much fun and I'm really falling in love with this park in Schaumburg.
