Glen Ellyn Private Wedding Ceremony: Aisha + Kendall

If the love is so good, why wait?! Aisha & Kendall are planning their wedding day for the springtime. But while planning, they asked themselves one day, “why wait?” So they decided to wed this Fall in an intimate ceremony surrounded by their immediate family. Everything about this ceremony was special, from the location—Aisha’s family church, to the attendees—loving Grandparents all the way down to the sweetest nieces and nephews ever. I am so incredibly honored to have shared in this special moment with these two. Can’t wait for the big celebration on April 27, 2019!


Many thanks to the amazing team who brought this celebration to life...

Bolingbrook Golf Club Wedding: Eman + Vincent

What a fun celebration Eman & Vincent’s wedding day was. Not only did I get to work with one of my favorite creative teams Pamela Hewlett Events, Danielle Rochon Makeup and Penthouse Sweets for this Bolingbrook Golf Club wedding, but I got to work with this very fun, cool, and affectionate couple. Eman & Vincent are every wedding photographers dream! They have crazy chemistry with each other, they trust their wedding vendors and give them creative freedom to do what they do best, and they are just all around fun loving people!! They literally flowed through their wedding day so naturally and carefree— just living in the moment! Which made things super easy for me, because I never had to force anything. I just came along for the ride and captured all the genuine emotions that unfolded throughout the day. The laughter, the awe, the dancing, the excitement. Nothing contrived or forced here. All genuine. All natural. All love. 

Many thanks to the amazing team who brought this celebration to life...

Fishermen's Inn, Elburn Wedding: Emily + Mike

Ok, now these two literally make me swoon. Seriously. Not only do they absolutely adore me, their favorite photographer, but they are both head-over-heels for each other and have been that way since Day 1. There’s so much to love about this couple. Here are a few things that I adore about them:

First of all, they’re gorgeous. I mean just look through the photos for yourself! Emily is so petite and cute, you literally just want to put her in your pocket :) There’s something about her face that is so innocent and angelic. She is a beautiful woman indeed. No wonder Mike fell head-over-heels for her :)

And then there’s Mike, he’s not bad looking either. He’s tall, handsome and has a small scar on his left cheek which makes him a little rough around the edges, a quality that I like in a guy :) And he’s a man’s man. He’s a hard worker and a great provider and he simply adores his girls, Emily and Ava, above all else. You can see it simply in the way he looks at them. It will literally make your heart melt. Not only did Mike commit himself to Emily, his beautiful bride, on their wedding day, but he embraced his new role as a stepfather with open arms and made vows to Emily’s daughter Ava as well. She even got her own mini-commitment band and a special first dance with her new dad during the reception. It was truly heart-warming. 

Lastly, their love for each other. We all know that being a single mom is not easy, but I could only image how much more difficult it would be to be a single teenage mom, as Emily was. One of the things that I absolutely admire about Emily is how she has overcome every.single.obstacle with such grace and class; and that despite all odds, she has raised a beautiful & vibrant little girl who is a joy to all she encounters. Throughout their wedding day, I could not help but feel immensely humbled to be able to witness Emily marry her Prince Charming, Mike—the missing puzzle piece who fit so perfectly into their family. A man who came into Emily & Ava’s lives with hands and arms wide open with a willingness to love them and give them all of himself wanting nothing in return. What a blessing it is to have overcome so many obstacles throughout life’s journey and to have found a love that is so pure, so strong and so unconditional. Every girl deserves that fairytale happy ending and I am so honored to have documented hers <3

And yet the journey has just begun! I wish nothing but many many many years of happiness and love for this amazing couple. Throughout this process they have become dear friends and an inspiration to me. They will always have a special place in my heart. Without further ado, here's a sneak peek into Emily & Mike's Fishermen's Inn, Elburn wedding.

Talley's Kitchen + Bar: Sarah's 40th Birthday

I absolutely adore Jeff & Sarah Martinath and their family. Together they have welcomed me into their home and entrusted me with the opportunity of capturing some of their most precious memories over the last year. The genuine love, affection and camaraderie that Sarah & Jeff share is infectious-- it is a relationship that I emulate in my own marriage. So naturally, I was thrilled when Jeff reached out to invite me to Sarah's 40th birthday celebration! Jeff did an outstanding job pulling off this surprise for Sarah, she was blown away!!

It was such a fun gathering complete with endless libations and lite bites provided by, Sarah's favorite restaurant, Talley's Kitchen + Bar in Clarendon Hills.  I'd be remiss if I didn't send major kudos to Krista Talley and her team. They were on top of everything!! They kept the food & drinks coming and provided exceptional service to Sarah's guest. From the owner Krista, to the bar tender, to the servers, everyone of the staff members went out of their way to make sure that everyone was well taken care of, creating a fabulous event for a fabulous lady.

Happy Birthday Sarah!!! May the next 40 years be as fabulous as the first!! xoxo

Many thanks to the fabulous team who brought this celebration to life...
