South Bend, Indiana Destination Wedding // Jeremy & Alyssa

I have so many favorites from this day it has taken forever just to narrow it down to these. Gosh, Alyssa and Jeremy I can't say enough good things about ya'll. I had a killer time hanging with you for your Lake Michigan engagement session. The talks were good and the weather was moody, which we were about. 

Fast forward a few months later to your wedding and goodness, what a celebration. Just from the start, you both got ready in awesome places surrounded by your closest friends and family to choosing a stellar venue like The Brick to say your vows and to celebrate forever together. (And throw down and some yummy pizza)

Everything throughout the day was just on point. From the details like a G-wagon getaway car, Jeremy's fresh Nikes and Alyssa's beautiful dress. To unforgettable joy and excitement on everyone's faces when the vows were said and these two sealed the deal.

Colorado Adventurous Mountain Couple Session // Georgia + Collin


Collin is going to learn how to fly fish and Georgia is a super talented photographer. We talked about our favorite Netflix shows and how scary it would be to get stuck in an avalanche. And even how easily offended everyone is nowawadays. 

We shared stories, jokes and business ideas. These are the kind of people that become friends, thanks to photography, the internet and maybe fate. 

Anyway, take a gander at a few of my favorites from the time we kicked it in the Colorado mountains.

Colorado Rocky Mountain National Park Engagement Session // Josh + Nicole

It's not everyday that you get the Rocky Mountain National Park to yourself. I mean, we had open roads, empty trails and the best views untainted by tourists (minus the one cyclist). 

Josh and Nicole are so cool and so sweet. They made me feel so welcomed in Colorado and took me to the BEST Vietnamese food ever. Seriously, if you're ever in Fort Collins, Colorado you have to go to Young's Cafe Vietnamese Cuisine.

These are the kind of people that make me feel so privileged to get to do this.

Chicago Family Photography Session // Lee Family

First, Chicago happens to be one of my favorite cities in the Midwest. Second, the Chicago Skyline from Montrose Beach makes for the perfect landscape for family sessions, picnics or just a place to chill. 

Third, I keep coming back to how valuable it is to have family photos. I look at my own family and so wish I had more photos of us doing life together. I'm such a fan of the unexpected. All the little moments that happen. You can feel the bond that JoAnna and John have with their daughter, Liana. Totally goals. It's a privilege to spend time with such a sweet family documenting all the love, joy and fun.
