Dominique is the younger sister of a friend of mine who asked if I could take some portraits of her both for some senior portraits and also to be able to use to possibly get some modeling jobs.  So we spent some time around both Ogilvie and Union stations downtown and I think got a bunch of great stuff!  I love doing portraits and it is all the more fun when your subject is super comfortable in front of the camera.






Josh and Joanna’s Halloween Wedding!!!


I could not have been more excited to be asked to shoot a Halloween-themed wedding!!!  Joanna and Josh are two of the nicest, most laid-back people I have ever worked with.  They definitely understood something that I strongly believe, that one of the biggest things about a wedding is just bringing all of your family and friends together for a great party!  While they both wore their traditional wedding dress and black suit, they asked their guests to come in costume.  There was fake blood, several bald caps (including coneheads), a chicken suit, Wolverine (old-school blue and yellow comic book version – my personal favorite), the entire Wizard of Oz cast,  the Von Trap family singers, and so much more…  Perhaps winning for creativity in my book was a teaching colleague of mine who dressed with her husband as the American Gothic painting.  I may have also donned a spider-man get-up later in the evening… (Peter Parker is a photographer, right?!)  Joanna and Josh, thank you again very much for including me in your awesomely fun big day!













Katy - Amazing pics!! Can’t wait to see them all!!

Laura & Mark’s Chicago/Wilmette Wedding


For their big day, Laura and Mark enjoyed one of the last beautiful and warm fall days we had here in Chicago.  We spent the afternoon cruising around Lincoln Park, where they both live, before heading up to Wilmette to the Westmoreland Country Club for their nuptials.  Their family, friends, and wedding party, could not have been more easy and wonderful to work with.  Thank you guys so much for having me as a part of your wedding day and all the best to you!
