Summer garden engagement sessions are wonderful. When the garden has a trampoline, the session is even more fun. Trey and Kylie were so much fun as we explored Hamstra Gardens, a hidden gem in Northwest Indiana. Their wedding is next summer which seems so far away, but we know it will be here in the blink […]

The heat was brutal. The sun was unrelenting. There was no breeze or relief from the still air.  But the location was lush and full of life. Blooms were abundant, the trees full canopies provided shade and butterflies and geese flitted about their summer day. The stage was set as their life was beginning together. […]

When Matt & Julia (currently Chicago residents) told us they wanted an engagement session not typical of the city, we jumped at the chance to utilize a location that we love. Steelworker Park is the remains of the old US Steel Complex known as South Works and once was a leader in providing the steel not just for […]

Every once in a while, life mimics fairy tales. Boy meets girl and falls for her. Boy leaves for military duties and asks her to wait. Boy returns and finally…. their timing is right. We have no doubt that Ted & Samantha will have their happily every after ending – together. Ceremony Location:

We cannot stress it enough: we LOVE Chicago. We’re true midwestern girls at heart – between the two of us, we’ve traveled to most of the major cities across the US and several around the world and this fact remains: Chicago is our kind of town. So when Vince and Daria wanted to do their […]

There are so many variables that go into making a good engagement session – some we have control of and some we do not. The light, the mood, the location; we could go on but really, all you need to know (and will see in the photos), is that everything aligned perfectly for Jake & Rachel’s […]

Salvage One is one amazing location. Pair it with Brian & Chelsea – a equally (or more) amazing couple and you know you’re going to have one heck of a wedding. So when the recent opportunity arose to team up and help Jenna Elliott at One Eleven Photography shoot this wedding, I {Charity}, jumped at it! […]

We love Chicago weddings because the city offers so many iconic and yet unique backdrops! Eileen and Chen-Lung took full advantage of this and rented a trolly to tote their wedding guests on a tour of their favorite spots – including the University of Chicago campus where they met (it didn’t disappoint with some amazing […]

I (Nicole) have known Samantha since 1988. Yep – about 28 years. I’d guess I was about 8 so she was probably about 5 years old when I first befriended her older sister. It’s crazy to think that we’ve known each other that long! We’ve literally watched each other grow up. So of course when […]
