It was truly an honor to photograph such an intimate wedding celebration that Maisie and Jerrie had over Memorial Day weekend this year. They invited a tight knit group of friends and family to celebrate their wedding ceremony and reception at Vincent Restaurant in Andersonville. Words can’t express how much we love this wedding! Congrats to two of our favorite brides, Maisie and Jerrie. Two brides are definitely better than one!

We love the story about Leslie and Sam first meeting at Castaways on North Avenue beach after a volleyball game a summer evening not too long ago. It was very appropriate they picked the pier at North Avenue Beach for their first look! We also sneaked in a few photos at Castaways before heading to A New Leaf for their ceremony and reception. The evening was complete with catering by Hearty Boys and florals by A New Leaf. Here are a few of our favorite moments from the day.

We photographed Candice and Bill’s wedding almost exactly a year ago, so we were thrilled when they reached out for a maternity session this summer! They’re expecting a baby boy very soon and their pig, Rosie, will be so excited to have a playmate! Here are a few photos we captured at their Chicago home that we just love.

We are so excited to share Melanie and Daniel’s wedding photos on the blog today! They got married at the beautiful Highland Park Country Club. The flowers by Pollen were simply stunning. And the cake and sweets provided by a long time family friend were a beautiful touch. Here are a few of our favorite moments from the day!

We’re very excited to share Gracie and David’s May wedding on the blog! The two lovebirds started their day filled with friends and family at Hotel Palomar Chicago. Afterward we headed to take some beautiful photos at Kinzie Street Bridge and the Alfred Caldwell Lily Pool in Lincoln Park. The ceremony and wedding reception were both held at the unique gallery space (and a favorite of ours!) Floating World Gallery. The evening was filled with live music from the Chicago Catz, who kept the party going well into the night. Enjoy some of our favorite moments from the day!
