Introducing A Blissful Affair. Come visit us, Amanda Hein Photography, along with some of our friends for an afternoon of ideas, mingling, and kick off to the 2009 season.

A little more about the event:
A Blissful Affair offers an environment unlike the typical bridal event. Each local, independent, business owner has been uniquely chosen based on the very best in individualized service and high quality products.

These targeted wedding professionals will forecast the latest trends in bridal for 2009. A Blissful Affair strives to bring big city style to suburban brides.

Brides and their guests will be treated to champagne, hors d'Ĺ“uvres and a stellar swag bag while taking in the gorgeous grounds at The Narnia Estate. Brides will have an opportunity to chat with each vendor about their unique wedding needs.

Fun in the Studio!

Earlier this month I hosted Jeremy Lawson (JLP) in the studio for a test shoot with Ford Models. We had a great day and Jeremy did some awesome stuff. The studio is available during the week so if you know of anyone (hair, makeup, photographers, stylists etc) that are looking for workshop or shooting space send them my way. Jeremy also put up his shots from the shoot on his blog - be sure to check them out under "Erica and Seville."

Kiersten + Chase

It was so fun having Kiersten and Chase in the studio this past weekend. They were such troopers trekking to the studio in the snow with mom and dad! This session was all about Kiersten but we managed to get some of Chase's brotherly love. These two are so loving and I was glad to be able to capture their care for one another during the shoot. Check back later next week to see Kiersten's collage (We did one for Chase about 3 1/2 years ago so it's fun to be able to create the matching set!)

Be sure to pick up the Spring/Summer 2009 issue of Chicago Social Brides (CS Brides) to see our published image of friend Mary Nisi (President and DJ of Toast and Jam) on page 106. Also in this issue is a great interview with another friend and industry leader Jonathan Ryan of A Perfect Event on page 98.

Jane + Ryan

With the Chicago wind and cold of last week these two had no problems keeping warm. It was a pleasure to share the afternoon with Jane and Ryan as we took a little tour of the city. They left the locations up to me - so I was pumped to get to some spots I've been waiting to shoot. These two did a great job and I'm really looking forward to their wedding in June.
