Thanks so much for stopping by. Before you get any further, I wanted to give a little background to this blog o’ mine. Here’s the deal - I consider myself a storyteller. To me, photography is the art of documenting people’s lives, the big moments and the little details!!! 

Pretty images are GREAT and all, but sometimes you want more than just a glimpse. That’s what these digital pages are for!! So if you’re the type that’s looking for the full scoop, read on my friend. Who knows… maybe your story will end up here next!!! 

hey new bff!!

A Surprise Chicago Proposal!

Last month, Andrew reached out to me over Instagram and spilled his plans of proposing to his sweet girlfriend of 5 years, Amanda. We schemed and planned it all out perfectly… Andrew would first bring her to brunch (mimosas obviously included), then they’d take a walk along the lake where he’d get down on one knee!!

The morning of January 25 was FREEZING (as in, single digit temperatures with windchill, gotta love Chicago!) but weather couldn’t put a damper on this celebration! Quite possibly the hardest moment of my photography career? Playing it cool and holding in my excited squeals as I witnessed Andrew pop the question, playing incognito tourist with my camera pressed to my face!! Amanda of course said YES after taking in the shock, and without a moment’s notice we frolicked along the lake grabbing a few photos to celebrate the special occasion.

Amanda and Andrew, you two are the absolute sweetest together and I couldn’t be more grateful to have captured this unforgettable moment in your lives!!! Operation surprise proposal?? BIGGG SUCCESS!!
