Chicago Engagement Photography - Heather + Mark

I spent the evening with Heather + Mark strolling around places with special meaning to them. Their first date spot, Pippin's Tavern. St. Gertrude, the Roger's Park church Mark's grandfather helped build. It was great to see their past, but I'm even more excited to see their future!

Logan Square Revolution Brewing Wedding - Paige + Patrick

Paige + Patrick live in Brooklyn, but they came back home to their old Chicago neighborhood, Logan Square to spend their wedding day with family and friends. Revolution Brewing was the perfect backdrop for their day. After the wedding, we headed across the street to Cole's where the groom played a surprise set with his band.

Catalyst Ranch Wedding Photography - Maggie + Jon

Maggie and Jon got married in a private ceremony on Leap Day. A few days later, they held a super fun and kitschy wedding reception at Catalyst Ranch complete with lots of dinosaurs, board games, and party hats! They put a lot of themselves into this intimate celebration for their family and friends, and I wish them all the best!

Ski Trip Instant Film - Honor, Michigan

I spent a weekend with a group of good folks skiing, falling, and hanging out in a giant house in upper Michigan that'd make Tim Allen proud. I only brought my old Polaroid 600 and a few boxes of black and white Impossible Project film to capture the laughs and smiles of Pure Michigan.

Lincoln Park & Cultural Center Engagement Photos - Blair & Andy

Blair and Andy bundled-up and joined me around the Lincoln Park in the Conservatory and Nature Walk to take engagement photos. Winter can be unpredictable in Chicago, but we got lucky with big, fluffy snowflakes! We ended our session at the Chicago Cultural Center downtown. I can't wait for Blair and Andy's wedding!
