This couple was too fun! They showed up eager to spend time together in front of the camera and I loved the energy! With it still being the Fall season, we were embraced with endless colors:)

These two have known each other since high school, I love that! Since getting to know them, I have really enjoyed learning about their professions and fun dates they like to have.  I am so ecstatic to photograph them again in their small, quaint, hometown this May! Funny story, a few weeks before meeting them, Sara saw me in a bridal party being photographed when she was on her way to work. Small world, right?

Thanks for being wonderful company and people to photograph, Sara and Rob! I’m spoiled:)

This wedding, oh my, it was wonderful! I absolutely love the joy and laughter that Jessica and Justin carry around with them. These two shared an intimate wedding day with a small ceremony and no bridal party. It’s always fun photographing weddings that are different than the rest, and this one definitely was!

There are probably some of my favorite candid moments from this wedding that my second photographer and I documented, and I know they will be treasured for a life time. Jessica and Justin are two people who truly compliment one another. Justin has such a quick wit and Jessica has a matching laugh to go with:)I am so grateful to have been able to get to know them and to have shared many laughs. Enjoy!

Meanwhile …

Looking sharp, Justin!

Justin wanted to show off his wedding clothes too:P

Am I excited to share this blog post? You better believe it because it has been long over due! This couple has such a special place in my heart. I can’t help but grin from ear to ear when I think of these two and their wedding day. I should have known that since Paul and Eliza are so wonderful, that there friends and family would be as well:)Talk about a couple that is so loved and encouraged by the people that surround them!

Paul and Eliza wed on a gorgeous August afternoon in Chicago. There day was filled with incredible people with the biggest smiles:)I loved when I had a chance to work with them alone together because they make anyone feel so welcome and cared for — what a gift that is to have and share! I still keep laughing to myself when I think of Eliza trying to feed me an appetizer that a staff member brought when we were doing portraits:PPaul has such a sweet and caring side that compliments Eliza’s personality so well, and it makes interacting with these two just am absolute treat.

The reception was held outdoors, followed by a horse and carriage get away! Too cool, right? I couldn’t of captured these great moments without the help of my second photographer that day, Robb. Thank you!

Paul and Eliza didn’t see each other before the ceremony but shared this sweet moment!:)

Time to get married!!

Loved this mother daughter moment!

    Love..love! Beautiful work Maggie!

    Maggie,
    Thank you for doing such an exquisite job of capturing all the love at this wedding! Your photographs are sensitive intuitive & very beautiful!

It was the middle of October but somehow there seemed to be a mix of rain and snow flurries coming down — only in Chicago, right?:PI loved that these two were up for any weather condition, and I am so happy we ended up photographing through it because it made for some beautiful imagery! Josh and Tiffany have a dream of opening their own coffee shop one day. Blackberry Market, my favorite place to dine and enjoy Intelligencia coffee, has such a unique feel and I knew it would be a perfect spot to photograph these love birds. I loved working with these two and found their excitement to be photographed together contagious!

Josh and Tiffany are getting married this July and I am thrilled to spend time with them again! Enjoy some of my favorites from our time together:)
