Last night with K + B! We celebrated their 10 year dating anniversary exploring downtown LaGrange! The coolest urban shoot and finished up with ice cream. No better way to spend the night then laughing and hanging out with these two!!
Ooo girl can we chat a min? Getting ready photos - ya knowwww the dress, rings, florals, invites, shoes, and all the special things that mean the most! One of my favvvv parts of the day is starting with these details. Having these ready ASAP on your wedding day when your photographer walks in makes a hugeeee difference in making MORE time for those last min makeup + hair photos, spending time popping bottles 🍾 with your babes and hugging your momma a little tighter as she helps you into your dress. Let’s start here together and then enjoy the day making the best memories of your life.
Illinois goes into phase 4 tomorrow and I am sooooo excited for all the fun shoot locations to open back up! Thank you all who have been patient with choosing less crowded areas and finding alternative locations for your shoots. ❤️
Whyyyy my couples so cute tho. 😊 @sam_krawczyk
Thank you all for so much LOVE over the past few days! Mike and I are over the moon excited to have a babe and see what this next adventure of ours is. And thank you to all my couples who were so excited for us also and sent so many kind emails and words! To be honest, I was a little nervous to share 😆 but so happy we did. I promise to still bring you the best vibes and content through this wedding season. Nothing is slowing down for me and that’s 100% just who I am lol! Cheers to YOU ALL who keep me going + keep my fire lit! I am soooo pumped for this summer/fall as things are getting bussssyyyyyyyy. 🤩😅
I learned how to make a GIF... oh + a baby too!! 😆 EEEEPPPP!! Adding a wolf pup to our pack!! 🖤🥺 I cant believe we made a babe @wolfgangnotpuck - Happy Father’s Day!!
I really love all the backyard glow ups. 😆 I mean heckkk bringing in all of your florals and details into a smaller intimate space really gives it that WOW effect! I know venues are usually your highest expense and the first thing you book. But hear me out. If you’re recently engaged or wanting an elopement celebration with your family + friends - I HIGHLY suggest looking into some smaller alternatives. I promise the love, the time together, the food, the details and the photos will be everything and more! I mean I would never imagine this was in a backyard. 🤩 . . . @lucifloraldesign @liadancu @frequenxia @targetdoesitagain @target @beauty_bykristie @madalina_bic
Lindsey + Joe are the cutest. I know they had all the nerves before their shoot as they hadn’t ever had professional photos done before. I always try to reassure my couples that it’s just like going on a date except you’re hanging out with me also 😆 These two totally rocked their engagement shoot and 5 mins in Lindsey cried at how amazing it felt to feel so beautiful with her man! THIS IS WHY I LOVE MY JOB. I want you to have that experience. The alone time set aside for just the two of you that you normally might not get. It’s such a fun and special moment to have. And then you have amazing memories + photos to remember it by! Celebrating all of you who are enjoying this special time in your life and showing 2020 that love is worth fighting for no matter your age, gender, type, or skin color!
Now that our states are opening up in phases are you up to travel or laying low a little longer? I recently had to travel and while nervous I was super excited for a change of pace. But I was super excited to come back home and not leave again for awhile 😆 quarantine made me even more of a homebody. I keep adding rad adventures with friends, families and couples towards the end of this year and I am so excited to see some new places and pick back up again after some down time. Where’s the next place you wanna go or already have planned? Besides local my next trip is to Indiana! . . @lucifloraldesign @bnstylin @bhldn @verdeaguastyle @sarowly @lechwardamian
Whose ready for summer water sessions 💦
Fighting for justice is a marathon, not a sprint. We will need to check in with ourselves daily. This is the commitment we must make. Now is the time and we must make fighting for equal rights our new normal! Keep fighting the fight. 🖤 Black lives matter!!
I am never one to really share my heart and feelings specially on social media... which I keep reading means you’re part of the problem. And this situation is very heavy and the emotions/feelings we all have are valued and valid. Yes I am white. Yes I am privileged. And I will NEVER fully understand or know what it’s like to be any other race. It really breaks my heart and I’ll never be able to feel the pain or experience anything close to this. However, I have always been an optimistic person. I’ve always chose to look at the light and positives in any situation. This one hurts. It hurts so bad. And yes I have wrote to officials and had these tough conversations and will always stand up for what is right. I challenge you through all of the hurt and the negative news to look at the positives. See the conversations that are happening. The relationships that are forming and the voices that are being heard. We have a very long way to go but if we always choose to see the bad and the hatred our hearts will never open to uniting and making things right. I pray that our country can heal, the families from all poc are touched and blessed and poc can heal and rise up to be just as equal with opportunities given that are well deserved. Because we should be in this together. Loving our neighbor and lifting them up! Black lives matter. 🖤
