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!!

Kara and John’s Crystal Tree Country Club Wedding

Kara and John said “I do” at the elegant Crystal Tree Country Club in Orland Park on a sunny August day. Their wedding was full of SO MUCH beauty and celebration, and each detail represented their classic love story perfectly!

The wedding paid tribute to not only their stories, but also to their most cherished relationships. Kara wore her mother’s diamond necklace, the same one worn by her sisters in their weddings before. The country club displayed grand ice sculptures of the colleges where John played baseball and Kara played hockey. They served “I Do Brew” – homemade beer brewed, bottled and labeled by Kara and John’s loved ones. They even borrowed Kara’s grandpa’s antique Rolls-Royce for photos (my personal favorite touch of the day!)

Kara and John’s wedding was opulent and meaningful from start to finish, and documenting the day was such a JOY! Congrats on forever you two!!
