This was the most relaxed, yet sweetest and intimate wedding I’ve shot so far. Thanks to Covid, Kristine and Nick’s wedding had to shrink down to a backyard wedding. But a smaller wedding means more time to enjoy the day and details. Kristine and Nick celebrated with their closest family and friends at her parents […]

Cantigny Park- Baby Announcement & Surprise Proposal

Apartment living can hold you back from changing things around. I am one of those people who needs to constantly be changing things around as my style evolves. Now I do wish I had a house or a bigger apartment at lease, but I have still been able to make our apartment cozy and stylish. […]

A Summer Engagement

Schaumberg Summer Engagement

I have learned, while living in Chicago, that the weather will never corporate with you, but that was not the case for Nathan & Courtney. When Courtney found me on social media we both did not know that we attended the same church a few months before. Being a new person at a new church […]
