Rachel + Andrew | Wedding

| August 29, 2014 |

Rachel and Andrew got married on an insanely gorgeous day near the beautiful San Diego.  I was so honored to be able to capture the love between these two on camera.  I hardly had to speak a word and they were laughing, hugging, and just being adorable newlyweds!  I was truly inspired as I shot these two in the magical afternoon light.  Their obvious love and adoration for each other made our romantics session one for the books :]  The rest of the evening was spent amongst close family and friends, while the kids cut loose and bounced around the dance floor!

Congrats R+A! xx.

Melinda + Gary | Wedding

Melinda and Gary’s wedding day was one for the books!  We shot at the Portofino in Redondo Beach, but it truly felt like we were in Hawaii.  The weather was beautiful and the quaint ceremony site filled with flowers made for the most gorgeous afternoon.  I loved being able to spend time with these two throughout the day, photographing them with their friends and family!  One of my absolute favorite moments was when their precious lil pup, Buddy, walked down the aisle as the ring bearer and sat on the train of Melinda’s dress the entire ceremony :]  The ceremony was filled with joking, laughter, and love as these two vowed to spend the rest of their lives together.  The rest of the night was spent in much of the same way, with everyone dancing the night away!

Congrats M+G!

Dana + Matt | Wedding

I am beyond blessed to be blogging this wedding today.  Dana and Matt are dear friends whom I met when I went to college in Chicago.  Dana and I became immediate friends the moment we met freshman year.  The adventures I have gone through with this girl are some of the greatest times and I am forever grateful.  Thankfulness doesn’t even begin to describe how I feel about her friendship.  So, when this beauty came to me asking if i would photograph her wedding to the love of her life, I was beyond humbled.  I was ecstatic to be able to fly from California back to Chicago to shoot this day that will be remembered forever by all who attended!  Dana was radiant and Matt was his joyous self, both anxiously awaiting the moment they would say “I Do.” Dana and Matt, thank you both from the bottom of my heart for allowing me to photograph this lovely day.  You two mean so much to me and being able to capture the love you share was AMAZING!  I adore you both.. xx.
