Sarah + Matt exchanged vows in a private ceremony across the street from their home in Lincoln Park. It was a calm morning, spent getting ready together in their home – just the two of them – before saying their personal vows to one another. These intimate moments are so so special, and I’m so […]

Lincoln Park Elopement, Private Vow Exchange | Sarah + Matt

Allison and David took me on a little Old Town tour of their favorite neighborhood hangouts – which is my absolute FAVORITE way to spend an engagement session! We started off at Happy Camper – where they frequent boozy coffees and bingo nights, walked over to Jeni’s Ice Cream for some Texas Sheet Cake, stopped […]

Happy Camper, Jeni’s Ice Cream, and At-Home Engagement Session | Old Town, Lincoln Park, Chicago | Allison + David

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again – these micro-weddings were something special. I know it’s not a popular opinion, especially for those couples that had to postpone their weddings in 2020 due to the pandemic, but every single couple that either decided to move forward with a small wedding or had a […]

Lincoln Park Nature Boardwalk Wedding | Mallory + Matthew’s Micro Wedding

Kyla + Paul are another one of those couples who were supposed to get married in 2020, but we all know what happened. To add to the pandemic/difficulty getting married in the US in 2020… these two were supposed to get married in Ireland, where Paul is from, just a few weeks ago. Unfortunately, restrictions […]

West Loop Murals Engagement Session | Kyla and Paul

2020 was anything but ordinary. While most of our couples postponed their wedding celebrations to 2021 and 2022, there were still some couples that  found a safe, socially distant way to get married during the pandemic, and saved the big party for next year. Well ‘next year’ is finally here – we’re celebrating Alyssa + […]

Micro Wedding in Trout Valley | Alyssa + Chris

Catching up on blogs from last summer… this one was in the heart of the pandemic! Stacy + Pete, like many of us during lock down, needed to get out of their place for some fresh air often – which landed them in the LA Fitness parking lot next to their building. They spent many […]

Stacy and Pete’s Life in the Pandemic Session

Maddie + Stephen came in from Iowa City to get married in Chicago, and it was awesome. City Hall moved their ceremony to the courthouse (which was extra fitting since both of them are currently in law school) and then we bounced around downtown Chicago on the riverwalk for some iconic Chicago photos. Maddie + […]

Chicago Courthouse Elopement | Maddie + Stephen

I receive a lot of questions on how to prepare for your portrait session, what to wear, how to practice ‘posing’, etc. so I put together some info to help you get a better idea of what you’re getting yourselves into – and hopefully get you over those nerves! Bottom line, just be yourselves. This […]

How to prepare for your portrait session

Like most couples in 2020, Sarah + Butch were forced to postpone their big wedding reception and have a smaller, micro-wedding. The Gwen proved to be the perfect location for this, as their suite has an open air balcony for the ceremony, and guests were able to enjoy the wedding safely, outdoors, and with an […]

Chicago Micro-Wedding | Covid Friendly Outdoor Rooftop Wedding at The Gwen | Sarah + Butch

November 7th, 2020 was a special day for many. As Alyssa + Nick rounded the corner of City Hall to get married and meet me for some pre-ceremony photos, they exclaimed, “Biden just won!” It was a moment I’ll never forget – as we were in the heart of downtown Chicago, taking photos to celebrate […]
