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!!

Val and Alex’s Peninsula Chicago Wedding

Spend just a few minutes in their presence and you’ll feel right at home. They are sweet and caring… both for each other and for those around them. But my favorite thing about Val and Alex?? They truly are the best of friends! You can see it in the warm smiles they share and in their easy laughs. They speak highly of each other whenever they get the chance, and for that and so many other reasons, these two are marriage GOALS. I should know… I photographed not one but two of their wedding celebrations!

For round two, Val and Alex wanted something intimate and romantic in the city that they call home. What says Chicago more than a rooftop terrace overlooking Michigan Ave?? With seamless styling by Chic from Chicago and the most EXTRA floral arrangements by Stemming from Love, the day was a fairy garden dream-come-true!! I’m still pinching myself after this magical elopement at The Peninsula Chicago. Enjoy some of my favorites of Val and Alex below!
