Lily Ann

Last weekend my husband and I spent a little time with Amy and Rich - you may remember me shooting their Labor Day wedding in 2008. Well they've added a new little one to the mix and I couldn't resist sharing a few images of Lily Ann from our impromptu photo shoot. Enjoy!

Bloomingdales + A Perfect Event + Amanda Hein Photography

As always, it was lovely to work along side Debi Lilly of A Perfect Event and her team at the "Pre-Wedding" Party. The event was a huge success and many amazing vendors were involved including:

A Perfect Event
Bloomingdales Home & Furniture Store

Around the store there were vignettes full of amazing details ie: bridal shower, engagement party, first dinner at home, breakfast in bed, after party and many more! (I think Debi is going to be doing a more detailed post from the event so I will link you all to that as soon as it's up!) Here is just a quick peek:

Esther + Eugene

Esther and Eugene had such a fabulous winter wedding! I will have to hand it to their amazing wedding party for heading out into the cold - I had to include a shot of poor Esther's frozen toes in this post below! The day was filled with traditions which allowed for plenty of great moments - all events took place at the Hyatt Deerfield with a quick escape to Lake Forest for portraits. Thanks again for being such a fun laid back crew!

Patricia + Bill

I had such a wonderful time shooting with Patricia and Bill this past Sunday. After suggesting a few location ideas for them to choose from they choose Union Station and ran with it. Their wardrobe selection immediately gave me a classic vibe and I just loved the energy they brought to the shoot. Their wedding is soon approaching this March - can't wait!
