Chicago Winter New Years Eve Wedding – {Rob + Aurora}

New Years Even Chicago snow wedding 01This 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!  New Years Even Chicago snow wedding 02 New Years Even Chicago snow wedding 03 New Years Even Chicago snow wedding 04 New Years Even Chicago snow wedding 05 New Years Even Chicago snow wedding 06 New Years Even Chicago snow wedding 07 New Years Even Chicago snow wedding 08 New Years Even Chicago snow wedding 09 New Years Even Chicago snow wedding 10 New Years Even Chicago snow wedding 11 New Years Even Chicago snow wedding 12 New Years Even Chicago snow wedding 13 New Years Even Chicago snow wedding 14 New Years Even Chicago snow wedding 15 New Years Even Chicago snow wedding 16 New Years Even Chicago snow wedding 17 New Years Even Chicago snow wedding 18 New Years Even Chicago snow wedding 19 New Years Even Chicago snow wedding 20 New Years Even Chicago snow wedding 21

Chicago and San Diego cross country Engagement – {Sara + Steven}

 

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)!

Olowalu Plantation House and Old Lahaina Luau Wedding, Maui – {Yue + Ben}

Maui olowalu wedding_01 I’m so excited to finally share this gorgeous Maui wedding of Yue + Ben! We had a blast getting to know each other (and getting soaked on the beach) the day before. They had a beautiful ceremony at Olowalu Plantation House followed by a fun reception with their friends and family at Old Lahaina Luau. The guests were treated to a yummy buffet and a show full of talented dancers! We ended the night with everyone surrounding them with sparklers! I was so grateful they chose me to capture it all in photos.
