Katie + Oliver's Intimate Wedding | Loch Lomond, Scotland

I love how every couple is so uniquely them. Whether they have a large party with endless amounts of friends, family members and acquaintances or a small intimate wedding, both represent who the couple is and it's such a lovely thing. 

Katie and Oliver originally were planning a large wedding in downtown Glasgow and as the weeks went on they realized they really just wanted an intimate day with just 20 of their closest family and friends from near where they both grew up on Loch Lomond.

The day was as serene as the landscape that surrounded us. The beautiful mountains lining the horizon, the calming still water served as the backdrop of the day. 

I always learn so much about myself and others after becoming a part of their family for a few days. It's always such a humbling experience and these precious moments make me so grateful for my life's work. I truly love what I do, photographing memories being made and stories unfolding.     

So cheers to you, Katie + Oliver!
May your days be filled with lots
of explorations in nature, lots of
delicious donuts, lots of reality
tv shows and most importantly
lots of love!

Anastasia + Felix | Iceland

Anastasia and Felix had me document their wedding photos in Iceland... just three years after they were married.
Their story moved me so much. 

This is a "renewal of love" that is pretty unique and beautiful.

Not filled with a lot of detail, but a lot of love. 
 

Anastasia and Felix are an endearing, entrepreneurial and charming Ukrainian couple who had to flee their hometown just two days after their wedding because of a war breaking out. Their photographer had decided to leave their city a week earlier, so there were no official images on their wedding day. In circumstances like that, photos seem a bit trivial. 

It was my honor to document their love on a very special trip to Iceland after years of them not even thinking of professional wedding photos during these transitional years of settling into their new home and lives. My favorite part of the trip was just spending our days and endless hours with them in the car just enjoying ourselves and the beautiful views. 

We discovered a favorite stop along our route for soup, hot dogs and coffee. And after endless days of them speaking amongst each other, I definitely want to learn how to speak Russian. I also learned that we peel potatoes differently, ha, and that we share a love for any type of board game. 

We ended up extending our stay with them at an Airbnb in Reykjavik on our last night (after a hilarious balloon-animal-making, taco-eating, and local-cat-stalking adventure) and playing this game called "keep talking and nobody explodes." It's an online game and everyone should definitely go play it with some friends today. 

All of this to say, the images below are beautiful moments from the trip, but nothing is more beautiful than truly enjoying the company you are in, in person and not in front of a camera. 

I've learned that my favorite moments with the ones I love from the last few years have not been documented, because I'm too busy enjoying them in person, and I love how special that is between the individuals that are there in those moments. 

Cheers to many more beautiful adventures together, Anastasia + Felix!

Amanda + David Wed | Chicago , IL

I started the day shooting David getting ready at their Wicker Park flat (which is the best neighborhood, and I'm not just biased because it's my neighborhood too! Well, maybe I am.) Their vibrant personalities were scattered all over their two-story loft. Then I captured their first look alongside my friend and lead photographer Kat, from DeependImagery.

We wandered around some industrial areas of Chicago before heading to the venue, which is a renovated warehouse itself. Prairie Productions was the perfect blank slate wedding venue for these two lovely individuals! It's now a stunning, naturally lit space that just makes you want to shoot there over and over again. It's probably one of my favorite venues in Chicago. 

Needless to say, Amanda and David's night ended with the most lively dancing and tons of joy! That is always one of my favorite ways to end a wedding day. Celebrating love with those that you love! Cheers to another beautiful wedding in my lovely city!

And more Chicago wedding blog posts coming soon!!

Michaela + Harris | Chicago, IL

These two are little bubbles of joy!

Separately, and even more so together! I was introduced to Harris, by my cousin, at a local favorite IPSENTO 606, where he works and makes sure the best coffee is being served daily! And it definitely is! And his beautiful wife Michaela, is a talented photographer as well at michaelaquan.com and has the best style in these parts! 

It was so much fun wandering around their neighborhood, which is just a few blocks from me, and finding the cutest walls, streets and alleyways! I love the way they interact and just being around them put a smile on my face! 

(Also, the belt Harris is wearing is a vintage FENDI belt from Michaela's dad! How cool?)

If anyone else wants to book a mini shoot for next week, I am running a special deal and you will have your images turned around in two days for those super last minute gifts! And Also starting off my year with a mini session special for the whole month of January! You can inquire via the contact button below! Either way, enjoy these fun images of these two precious individuals!!

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!

KARLA // @itsme_karla     GABE // @g_a_b_e__

To inquire about a portrait, engagement or family session contact me below to chat! 

Ruth + Mark | Isle of Skye

Ever since being introduced to Ruth (thanks Ian!) I knew she would become a close friend of mine. I appreciate her kindness, hospitality and just overall genuine personality. She is a gem and a firecracker at the same time. I was so grateful to spend this past weekend capturing Ruth and Mark's engagement photos on the Isle of Skye, where Ruth grew up. She had plenty of hikes lined up and plenty of food and drink to satisfy an army. Ruth's grandma also contributed with delicious homemade food multiple times, so I now know where she gets it from! 

Anyways, enjoy these images of our weekend...and always remember..."a couple that lunges together, stays together!" (see second to last image)

If you'd like me to come with you for an engagement or elopement weekend, contact me and we can work something out! 

Gabe + Karla Wed | Love on a Farm in Wisconsin

Their love is a thing of beauty, storybooks + lots of laughter.

Gabe + Karla. Two of the most beautiful individuals I know, inside and out (and who I also get to call my family). When Gabe introduced her to the family I instantly knew I loved her. She plays and teaches music to little kiddos for a living (at Little Parade in Chicago), so I guess that bubbliness is needed! But even for adults, her smile is vibrant enough to make the whole room happy! 

They were both born + raised Chicago and are the epitome of city people. But for their wedding, they wanted to get away from it all, as we all do sometimes. They ventured north just over the Wisconsin border and found the most lovely little property called The Farm at Dover. Karla got ready in the pink house on the property, their ceremony was in the woods and their coffee hour and stunning reception was in the two-story renovated barn. The day was just perfect. The weather was overcast and the colors were perfectly romantic. Darker tones always tend to make me feel something from each image, more than vibrant colors. The tone of the day was somber and sweet and I'm so grateful I was able to capture the moments from the start of their new season together and Mr. + Mrs Lopez. 

Cheers to new beginnings!

Davide + Michela | London Love

Davide and Michela are two of the most beautiful individuals. They met in Italy (where they are from). She is an artistic and talented fashionista. He owns Press Coffee in London. Together they make the sweetest couple. I'm always abundantly grateful to capture a love like theirs. The memories spent with these two and their kindness will last with me forever. And on top of all of that, they came prepared for this photo shoot with multiple of the most stylish outfit changes! I'm thankful that I have the opportunities to meet people online and then have clients turned friends from all around the world. The internet really makes the world so small.

Enjoy these images of these two gems roaming around London a few weeks ago! 

Davide and Michela, you both are so incredibly precious. Never stop being passionate about each other. Your joy, your smiles, your laughs and just your unending love for life is so contagious. Appreciate you both so much! Can't wait to hang out in London with you both again soon!

Victoria + Theo Wed | Edinburgh, Scotland

This day was filled with so much beauty and stillness.

Victoria and Theo have a beautiful history of love that started when they met in Canada many years ago, then they both eventually ventured down to London to reconnect later in life and are now settled in Edinburgh with their incredibly adorable children. I love stories like these. Mainly because no two stories are the same. Every couple inspires me and I am so grateful to be able to not only capture wedding days but to genuinely celebrate their love alongside their family and friends (and maybe, quite possibly, sing and bop around a good bit during the dancing). 

And when I mentioned stillness, I meant that, with "The Fringe" happening in Edinburgh during the entire month of August, The Royal Mile is completely packed with tourists. But we found the most lovely nooks and alleyways for portraits, and plenty of quiet spots amongst the noise. It was so fun feeling like we were hidden away when there are thousands of people on the other side of the building. If anyone was concerned about getting married during festival season in Edinburgh because of the tourists, don't be. It was perfect! 

Victoria and Theo, thank you so much for choosing me to capture your day! It was such an honor. Wishing you many blessings on the many years ahead of you!

Every dinner table was named after their most memory giving pubs in London.

I'm definitely a fan of men in kilts as well. Especially dancing! Way more entertaining.

Meryl + Hugh Wed | London, England

I now know that miracles do happen, because I met you...

 

Every wedding should start with coffee or champagne on a London balcony, and end with a beautiful room full of loved ones giving the most heart-warming speeches I have ever heard. Thank you for inviting me to shoot your wedding day, Meryl and Hugh. You two couldn't be more precious together and your story is so inspiring to me. Your day was magical to capture! Cheers to your beautiful journey of life together!

Coffee + Love | Chicago Wedding

I love when a bride feels good about herself and you can see the excitement and joy overflowing in all of her motions. Twirling in her dress, making sweet eye contact with her love and nonstop smiling from ear to ear. Sometimes my cheeks even hurt after a wedding day from smiling so much. I also love that her tattoo says "Where there's a will, there's a way!"

This wedding shoot at Chicago Workshop is a perfect way to show you that you can have an intimate wedding (which I LOVE) and still have all of your favorite wedding vendors, minus the huge gathering. 

And what could be better than a couple getting married in a creative studio enjoying their favorite coffee and donut filled dessert bar? 

Cheers to couples in love!

You can't beat pure joy, even when it's so cold out!

I can't get enough of shooting the unique details of a wedding day.
