When Nicole told me that her and Eric have photos taken together every year, I wanted to high five her! After engagement and wedding photos, I think couples forget that it is still very special to get in front of the camera together. Those big wedding moments have past, but the love for one another hasn’t, and I think having that captured often is just the coolest:)

Nicole and Eric are just precious. Watching them laugh together on this shoot had me giggling along behind the camera, and I love the real moments that came from their interactions. This job has introduced me to so many wonderful people, Nicole and Eric being proof of that:)Enjoy their post because I am sure you will find their laughter as contagious as I did!

I met these two via Skpe. Yes — Skype. Shanta and Andy live in Florida and decided to have their wedding here in Chicago! A few months prior to their day, I had the chance to actually meet them for lunch when they came into town for some wedding planning. What I loved about our meeting was that we did not just talk about wedding details but got to know one another and laugh over a delicious pub meal:D

I loved every moment of this day. Shanta’s gown, hair style, makeup, and flowers came together flawlessly. And Guess what?! Her bouquet was made from Whole Foods. I flipped when I found that out! Through getting to know these two, I had the chance to hear more of their sweet story that led to their wedding day. I loved not only documenting them together but also seeing those special moments between them when they thought no one was looking — stolen kisses and grinning faces.

Enjoy a glimpse into their day.
