This wedding was quite different for me! I’m used to warm climates and shooting outdoors – the polar vortex didn’t allow either so we had to get creative! Luckily Rob + Aurora are total troopers and had no problem with me dragging them outside twice for portraits! This was my very first New Years Eve wedding and it was so fun to watch the balloon drop at midnight!

From the very first meeting with Sara + Steven, everything just fell in to place! They mentioned it would be cool to do engagement photos in both their hometowns – Chicago and San Diego. Well it just so happened I was going to be in Chicago the same time they were! So we planned a cross country engagement session for these two! How fun is that? The first half is from our time in Chicago and the 2nd half is from Coronado! Oh and I don’t think it needs mentioning but these two are huge Blackhawks fans – so of course we had to shoot at the United Center! I’m so excited for their July wedding this year (in CA)!
Meanwhile back in Cali…
Cheers to an amazing 2014! I’ve been so lucky to get to meet amazing new people every year! Each wedding I photograph leaves an imprint on my heart – they are all unique and special to each couple. I’m so grateful for each and every one of you!! That includes all my clients as well, not just the weddings posted here! <3
Katie + Tommy are absolutely adorable. They wanted a laid back San Diego wedding and they did it perfectly! They had the help of the amazing Danielle with Ballroom Glitz Weddings. It was a gorgeous October day in San Diego – I mean check out that killer sunset we had that night!
