Ahhh … Winter, a time for me to hideout a little bit and blog some non-work photos during this slow paced time of year 🙂 In the beginning of January, I attended my talented friend’s gig at “The Hideout“. It was a fun event that featured a handful of local artists in the Chicagoland area. I loved the space and the creative environment for these artists to share their music.

You all may remember when I blogged photos from Tyler’s CD release show months back. Well, here are some highlights of his performance the other week! If you have a minute, check out his FB PAGE and his album on itunes!

I was lucky enough to finish my last 2014 wedding season with this couple! Meet the beautiful love birds, Joanna and Will. However, I bet you remember them from their engagement session this past Spring 🙂

Inspiring love. Those are the two words I think of when I look back at my time of getting to know these two. Photographing two people who are are hopelessly in love and who share giddy smiles with one another any chance they get makes for a memorable day. I was constantly amazed by the care and love they showed towards one another. These two not only love one another well, but they truly love the family and friends that surround them in the most genuine way. It is a huge testament to the marriage they now have entered into and the strong foundation they now have for a lifetime of togetherness.

Thank you both for the incredible experience of getting to work with you and your friendship. Enjoy highlights from this Fall wedding!
