It just took a few emails, and this styled bridal shoot was in the works! I am so glad I did not let the fear of the answer “no” keep me from pursuing this project. Check back in a few weeks for a full post of images, and short interviews with the team I was able to work with for this bridal session!

Doug and Mari — They lit up my day as soon as we began their engagement session. They hopped out of their  cab, big smiles, ready to step in front of my camera and connect.

These two first met when working at the same job. After several years together, they are tying the knot this May! Mari has a contagious laugh, and Doug smiles at her adoringly. I never grow tired of the nervous giggles throughout engagement sessions and the ability to capture those raw moments. I loved hearing about how they spend their time together, and there is no doubt that we have a common interest in good food:)

It was a pleasure exploring Lincoln Park and living in the moment with these two!

I loveeeee when I have the opportunity to take unique portraits and focus my attention on one individual! Dana, a talented photographer herself, could not have been a better model for this creative portrait session. She has the most easy going personality, and uhmmm … she’s stunning! So happy with the images that were created during this short time and getting to know this girl more! Enjoy some favorites!

  • Woah! These belong in a magazine! Or somewhere people can see them and recognize your amazing talent! Dana’s face reminds me of Lauren Conrad, and your stunning images of her remind me of a magazine feature!
