Engagement Pictures: Andrea and Adam

I had a great time with Andrea and Adam this past weekend! They really wanted some fun but still some serious pictures because grandma wanted an 8×10! So here’s some of the great expressions and moments I got 🙂

Until next time! I have some more epics to put up AND trash the dress!

We started out with some smaller family pictures:

Lots of pictures were taken (not only by me!)

some coloring for the kids:

some speeches were given and so touching!

some of the birthday girl and her cake!

Then ended with some family pictures:

Until next time….


Engagement Pictures – Vi and Ariel

I spent a lovely, but hot, day downtown in the Grant Park area taking engagement pictures for Vi and Ariel.  They are such a sweet couple and just moved to this wonderful city!  They’re getting married next Summer/Fallish in California but wanted to show their friends their fun new surroundings!  Here’s a ton of my favorites!  I couldn’t just pick a few, I love them all!  Thanks for the great day Vi and Ariel!

And actually the last picture of this post and of that day!

Until next time,

Krystal - wow Kara, I love e-pics like this. The scenery in most of the pics are just beautiful by itself, but with the couple, it’s sooo perfect…looks like time was standing still for them. Just beautiful, I really like the walking down pic in the park, the angles in that one….just breathtaking.

Lori - I love them all… the seventh one is my fave! =]
They are beautiful! I can’t wait! lol =]

Benny and Danielle – The Party

So this is kind of a continuation of the last post, it’s was the large party celebrating their marriage from the day before.  It was a lot of fun and they even thought of kids entertainment!  Someone said that they’d never heard of a pinata at a wedding event, but I think we all agreed that it was a good idea!

This cake topper always makes me laugh!

Gorgeous rings!

I’m telling you, buy a pinata for your wedding, it was so much fun and the kids loved it!

There was even a cake fight, though not between the bride and groom!

Thanks again for letting me capture your big day(s) Benny and Danielle!

Until next time,


8.15.08 Danielle and Benny

I had the pleasure to photograph Danielle and Benny’s big day!  After 9 years of courtship, they decided to take the plunge with a few close family members in tow.  They already have a beautiful family and beautiful spirits!  I couldn’t just pick a few photos, so I choose a lot and there was a party the next day that will require it’s own posting!  So from here, enjoy!

going to get married…

Searching for rings:

She didn’t want to get her dress dirty!

Cutest picture.  Ever.

I love this one.

One thing I learned this weekend: cell phones = happy kids!

We headed to a local restaurant for dinner!

The end.

Coming editions: The Party.

Until next time,
