Engagement Pictures – Shannon and Matt

•November 17, 2008 • 1 Comment

Shannon and Matt were one of the first couples to book me for their wedding day! We had some crazy time trying to find a day and time that would work around everyone’s crazy schedules, but we finally found some time on Sunday. It didn’t snow until we were done so we had great timing! We headed to Cantigny in Wheaton, it’s really beautiful over there and I can’t wait to go back during the actual blooming season!

Matt HAD to have a picture by the tank

I love the next few:

This one is for you Matt:

Hope you enjoyed!

Engagement Pictures – Stefanie and John

•November 13, 2008 • Leave a Comment

Ok, so I got to take Stefanie’s and John’s engagement pictures on Tuesday, and let me tell you, they are good sports!  It was cold, it was rainy, it was wet!  But this is one of my favorite engagement picture sets!  It was a lot of fun and Stefanie and John were up for anything I told them to do (I love when that happens 😉

If you’re wondering location, it was the Naperville Riverwalk which holds a special place for me!

Love this one!!

So adorable:

John (and Stefanie) are huge Steelers fans!  We did a quick wardrobe change and did some awesome ones in their jerseys!

And funny story, the ducks along the river would quack every time they kissed!  I guess they didn’t like the PDA’s!

Hope you enjoyed!!  Despite the weather, this was a really fun session!

So I had the lovely time meeting my good friend Gerrie and doing her maternity pictures! Look how adorable these are! (by the way, I’m not so great at this blogging thing with the words, but hey, you just want to see the pictures right!?)

This one is too cute!

Gerrie and her hubby are HUGE red sox fans, so this was a must!

my favorite:

We went outside even though it was raining a bit!

Until next time!

Engagement Pictures: Tracey and Brian

It turned out to be a much better fall day than expected on Saturday when I went out to do Tracey and Brian’s engagement pictures! It was pretty calm and the perfect Fall weather for that day! Enjoy:

There was lots of laughing!

I love fall colors:

We added on a family session after the engagement pictures! It was fun, but challenging with 2 little ones 🙂

I call this one: ok, now everyone look away from the camera!

How do you get a kid to smile?

Let him cover his younger brother in leaves!!

Hope you enjoyed!

Trash the Dress – Marisa and Tim

I spent a cold and windy day with Marisa and Tim in Milwaukee, they’re friends of Michelle (see other trash the dress below) and loved her pictures and wanted some for themselves! I was delighted and they were troopers! Marisa even wanted to get in the freezing Lake Michigan water! So enjoy!

Ok, so I couldn’t just pick a few…there’s tons more good ones too!!  Hope you enjoyed!

I had a lovely time photographing Casie and Kevin’s big day!  It was perfect weather out in a gorgeous forest preserve followed by a lovely dinner with their close friends and family.  The fall colors were in full swing and made for some great photo opportunities.  Enjoy 🙂

a ladybug visited her for good luck:

boys and flowers are always hilarious!

delicious cupcakes!!
