Karla + Gabe | Chicago, IL

Karla and Gabe are one adventurous gem of a couple. I consider them Mrs. + Mr. Chicago. I enjoy hanging out with them weekly, but had such a fun time on my rooftop with the Chicago skyline in the background and capturing their personalities! They are mix a quirky and silly, total babes and are some of the most genuine and kind hearted individuals I've ever met. And I also have the pleasure of calling them family! Gabe...forever and ever, and Karla, just this past summer when they got married! 

Also, can we talk about how cool Gabe's tattoos are, incorporating a mix of Chicago pride, meaningful moments and hand drawn illustrations by his son.

Go check out more about what they are up to on Instagram. Both are the epitome of a Chicago creative and how to be musicians + entrepreneurs in a big city! Enjoy!

Studio Living | Bekah + Samar

All her perfect imperfections made her the most beautiful creature. -Atticus

This space. This lighting. These moments. These two humans I am so incredibly blessed to call friends. Their joy, laughter, genuineness and sweet spirits you can easily see just by spending any amount of time with them. (It also doesn't hurt that Stumptown coffee, Bob, Bruce and polaroids are involved).

I truly love capturing the beauty of friendship.

Historic GA Engagement Session | Jordan + Jonathan

I absolutely love these images and the sweet individuals who are in them. Jonathan is my brother in law, and Jordan is my soon to be sister in law! I love them both so much and am so excited for this new season in their lives. I shot this session in the beautifully historic downtown area of Macon, GA. These shots not only capture this beautiful district, but the clearly evident love that Jonathan and Jordan have for each other. 

Love you both, Jonathan and Jordan, and I cannot wait for your wedding this weekend in VA!
