Becky & Tom | Meson Sabika Wedding

I absolutely loved this Meson Sabika wedding! This is one of my favorite wedding venues in the Chicago suburbs. The mansion itself is gorgeous, with a fountain and tons of pretty flowers. Plus, the food is amazing!

Becky and Tom are the sweetest couple and I am so thankful for the opportunity to photograph their wedding!

2018 | Year in Review

2018 was a pivotal year for me. It was a new beginning for my business, having put my photography business on the back burner for too long. I got a slow start to the year but once my feet hit the ground, I took off running. I started new and creatively exciting projects. I have had so many clients become friends. I photographed families who have lost loved ones, knowing those images will be cherished for a lifetime. In all of this, I have truly rediscovered my calling to be a photographer.

Thank you. For trusting me with your family’s most special moments. For believing in my talent and vision. For coming back to me year after year to photograph your family. For being there supporting me along the way.

2019 is going to be my best year yet and I am so thankful to have you all with me on this journey.

Tracy + Lawrence | Wilder Mansion Wedding

Elmhurst Wedding Photographer

Are you looking for a classic and beautiful wedding venue in the Chicago suburbs? If so, you really need to check out Wilder Mansion. Wilder Mansion is in Elmhurst, Illinois, and is a really pretty venue with lots of areas to take photos in. In fact, I would even call it a hidden gem.

There’s a garden for outdoor ceremonies with a hedge lined path to the ceremony site. In front of the mansion is a fountain surrounded by beautiful flowers. My favorite spot was the greenhouse! It came in super handy when it started to rain at the end of the ceremony. The light inside a greenhouse is absolutely beautiful. The greenhouse acts as a diffuser and makes the light super soft and pretty. Another reason greenhouses are so awesome is they give you the ability to shoot anywhere without worrying about where the sun is or harsh shadows. Basically, greenhouses are what photographers dream of!

I also have to say, this wedding had guests with some of the best dance moves I’ve seen! The dance floor was hoppin’ and full of energy all night.

This wedding was an absolute dream to photograph. Beautiful details, a gorgeous and bubbly bride, a beautiful but HOT day, a seriously amazing venue, and they brought in an ICE CREAM TRUCK! The bride and groom even served their guests the ice cream.

If you’re looking for a unique and very cool wedding venue in the Chicago suburbs, Warehouse 109 is it! There is an entire gallery wall full of antique motorcycles, a vintage bar, an Airstream lounge, string lights, and so many more cool elements that make it such a stunning venue! It is such a different and beautiful space, definitely a photographer’s dream.

Jeff & Alyssa | Rolling Meadows Wedding | Meridian Banquets

This wedding will always be memorable to me. The day started off gloomy during preparation photos and poured down rain during the ceremony. Immediately after their ceremony ended and all the indoor portraits were finished, the clouds broke and the sun came out. It was the most perfect timing. Since the weather had been so gloomy, the Prairie Center for the Arts was almost empty when we arrived which gave us free reign over any area we wanted to use for photographs. I was able to capture some fun surprises throughout the day from the bridal party and some co-workers which was a first for me. Above all, I was able to capture some really beautiful moments between Jeff and Alyssa which is really what makes this wedding so memorable to me. Check out some of my favorites from their June wedding.

Venue // Prairie Center for the Arts & Merdian Banquets

Cake // Baking Institute
