Kirstin and Kara on

You of course all know our friends Kirstin and Kara (Smitten Boutique and Magnificent Milestones) well recently did a feature on these two ladies which I just had to share for two reasons. Reason #1 - They're just so fun and I thought you all would love the inside scoop. Reason #2 - I managed to get a cameo! You'll see me with my camera backpack entering the boutique as they were filming - this was the same day I went in to shoot their window display for our other friends Natalie and Vita (Hello Darling Floral.) Oh and you'll also recognize their portrait I took for their ADORABLE merger announcement. Too much fun!!

Zori + Malik :: Chicago Wedding :: Prairie Production

July 3rd was filled with excitement as Zori and Malik tied the knot at one of my favorite venues in Chicago, Prairie Production. It was so fun shooting for Zori and Malik - it reminded me how important it is for the Bride and Groom to run their own day and not to let the day run them. My duties for the afternoon/early evening was capturing the ceremony and unique portraits around the city. They even found an awesome car for our photo session which was a fun little story all in itself. Since we did spend about 2 hours on our photo shoot I have many great portraits to share - I'll be sure to post more next week. Congrats you two!!

Lindsay + Drew :: The Drake :: Chicago Wedding

What a fun filled day! Lindsay and Drew's crew were so much fun. Their day focused on family, friends and their long journey together over the years. We started off at The Drake for some star treatment, ventured up to Queen of All Saints Basilica for a gorgeous ceremony, made a quick stop at LaSalle/Adams, then finished off the night back at The Drake. Coordination and Planning by Debi Lilly of A Perfect Event - look for another post with decor/details coming soon!
