Farm And Vineyard Wedding at Becker Farms

When it comes to meeting your future wife or husband, there are many possible ways, places, and occasions. Sometimes it's a matter of good timing, sometimes a matter of innocent look. Yet sometimes it's a matter of a good common friend. And that's how Kevin and Ashley met. Their story is really sweet: they only

Richardson’s Canal House Wedding

Weddings are symbolic events; they symbolize two people's devotion for one another, their mutual love. They also create an opportunity for the families and friends to express their support and love through extraordinary deeds like helping organize the special day, or giving a heart-warming speech. Recently, we got the opportunity to photograph a wedding of

Lighthouse Restaurant Wedding

Talk about energy. Brian and Ashley have so much energy, I can't begin to describe it. They went through their wedding day with smiles lighting up their faces, adoring each other, and making sure that everyone was having a great day on their wedding day. There wasn't a moment where they frowned. And, as if

Hilton Chicago Wedding

Pride, joy, family: these are the three words we would use to describe Jaleesa and Byron's wedding day. So that moment when the tune changes, breaths pause, and a spark appears in the groom's eye; when everyone turns around, and everyone experiences their moment of awe. It's the moment when the beautiful bride and her

Unique Wedding Venues in Rochester

Having moved to Rochester NY only last year, we weren't expecting to book much in the Upstate this year. We thought that it'd be nice to take it easy the first year here: network with other vendors, and maybe contract for other photographers. And while we've been doing all that, we have to say that

Morton Arboretum Wedding

Morton Arboretum is a place in the south-western Chicago suburbs where people go to relax, find inspiration, and admire the full beauty of Chicago's flora.

Hyatt Lodge Wedding

"Piovere a catinelle!" said someone in the crowd of cheering guests as the newly weds were exiting the church. Honestly, the rain wasn't as bad as it sounds but that didn't really matter anyways; what mattered was that there were happy faces, warm smiles, and, most of all, the happiest couple in the World: Lauren

Buffalo History Museum Elopement

This past Monday was the best Monday in a really long time! It wasn't just another beginning of the week. It also wasn't just another gloomy early spring Monday. What it was, though, it was the happiest day in the life of one beautiful couple: Laneisha and CJ. Laneisha and CJ asked me to document

Deer Path Inn Wedding

It's funny how, sometimes, life takes us the long way to our destination. Eventually, we find what we've always been looking for and realize that it's always been there. Our delightful couple, whom we are excited to present today, had experienced their own such long path before finding each other again. Aimee and Chase share

Room 1520 Wedding

There were so many things to LOVE about this wedding: the incredible vendors, beautiful decor, great venue and, most importantly, the fantastic bride and groom!

Birthday Party at Kid City Chicago

Every-time we had the opportunity to work with this amazing family to document their birthday parties, we were so impressed with how much energy the parents put into planning. They always made sure that everyone, the kids and the adults, had great time. Looking back in memory, the first birthday was a superhero-themes; then the next one (bro-bro's

Room 1520 Wedding

Here's a wedding that I shot a while ago. Preparing this post and remembering all the dear moments from that day has put smiles on my face. The reception was full of heartfelt moments, laughter, and tears. The speeches really moved everybody's hearts and definitely the bride and groom's hearts. The bride and groom were fantastic

It was Sara Jane and Christian’s wedding!

One day, Christine and Matt, the most lovely couple you could come across, was walking down the street; they were engaged in a good conversation full of intelligent observations and witty jokes.

Garfield Park Conservatory Wedding

One beautiful day, at the Purdue University, a boy asked a girl to let him copy her homework -- and she let him. That moment, like a little spark, started a flame that remained warm and bright and withstood the tests of time and distance. Bryson and Shennae, ladies and gentlemen, one of the sweetest
