Stephanie and Derek

Stephanie and Derek’s wedding was just lovely and I finally got to shoot a wedding at Hotel Arista in Naperville!  I’ve always loved that hotel since the built it and have done a few boudoir sessions there!  The rooms are so gorgeous and make taking pictures easy!  We headed to Cantigny after the ceremony and it was just as lovely!  Though a bit hot we survived and got some gorgeous pictures too!

Michelle and Adam

I’m so excited for these pictures too!  Michelle is a college friend and she contacted me about photographing her wedding!  Her and Adam are really perfect for each other and it’s so awesome to see them so happy with one another!  And the great stories I learned about both of them!  I also got to see a lot of our friends that I’m only in touch with on facebook!  So it was nice to chat with them in between things! And the dancing was pretty amazing too!

Leanne and Gamy

I can’t believe it’s taken me this long to blog Leanne and Gamy’s wedding!  It was fabulous and awesome and well I posted it on facebook a few days ago so definitely follow me there too!  But this was so much fun!  These are just a FEW of my favorites but I could definitely shown the entire gallery which is huge but totally worth it.  Leanne even learned Gamy’s favorite song and sang it before their first dance, and let me tell you, Leanne can sing!  It was awesome and with a band to back her up too!  And I can’t even talk about how awesome the toasts were!

Helena 2 month lifestyle session

I’m so excited to show you these as I don’t always get to do lifestyle sessions. More formal sessions for holiday cards and such are what I normally do and I really enjoy these!  It’s nice to spend a hour or so with a family and see how they really are and what their day is like!  And well Marisa and Tim are more like family than clients anyway, they joked that they were going to leave Helena with me while they went out!  I did end up feeding her a bottle too.  Haha!  I’m good with fussy babies, just not my own, they give me good practice!

Lindsey and Mike

I’m finally sharing Lindsey and Mike’s wedding with you all!  I’m so sorry for the delay, that’s why this post is loooong and it could’ve been way longer too!  I had some issues with software (don’t worry, all images are safe!  Just a lot of hurdles) and I’m FINALLY getting them all straightened out!  So without further words, here’s a preview!
