One month ago today, you could find us at The Foundry Suites, celebrating Alex & Scott! The sun was shining, the fall colors were just starting to turn, and we were thrilled to be there to capture it all. I started with the ladies in a suite, while Colin captured Scott & the boys, before we met up for an incredibly adorable First Look, followed by a super cute gift exchange! We headed out for bridal party portraits afterwards, before returning for a stunning courtyard ceremony & fab party! Their reception was a blast, with Paula’s & Mayer’s Bros donuts, hot cider, a sparkler send-off & more, but I think my favorite moment was when Alex’s dad called her mom to the dance floor after his toast, and they shared a dance on their wedding anniversary! I love that A&S chose such a special date for their own wedding.

S&A are two of the most down-to-earth sweethearts you’ll meet and their joy just glowed from the inside out. To top it off, they had a wildly fun bridal party and a room full of energetic wedding guests, who really brought their A-game to the dance floor (you’ll see!) Thanks to A&S for inviting us to capture this gorgeous day; we LOVED being a part of it! XOXO

Meet my friend and fellow girlboss, Alaire! She’s the creator and owner of Laira+Lou Jewelry (which you need to head over & check out ASAP, because, well, her pieces are insanely awesome). She also has a thriving modeling career, and is an all-around lovely person, with an electric smile. You’ll see what I mean 🙂 We had a fab session together during my last visit to Miami, at one of my favorite places in the world, the Wynwood Arts District. Public art EVERYWHERE. Add in a gorgeous model, perfectly soft light, and talk about a photographer’s dream!

When I first met Lauren during our consult, I couldn’t help but to notice how joyful she was when she spoke about her wedding. She just lit up, telling me about Tom, and their pup Minnie, and the beautiful plans for their day. I loved her happy energy, and was so excited when they chose me to be their photographer! I was looking forward to their e-session, and was thrilled with the gorgeous morning light we had at Delaware Park & The Japanese Gardens! Can’t wait for the big day!

We had the most lovely day with Brianna & Charles, and I can’t wait to share some favorites! I started inside the Hotel Lafayette for bridal prep, while Colin hung with the boys (and Gino, pretty much the cutest pup ever) at their Elmwood Village home. We headed over to Holy Angels for a gorgeous ceremony, before B&C were whisked away in her dad’s vintage Camaro. After bridal party shots at Columbus Park, Lasalle Park and the front of the Lafayette, we headed inside the Marquis Ballroom for a stunning (and wild!) reception. The entire day was so fun; see for yourself below!

Very excited to be sharing shots from one of my favorite little families 🙂 I’ve photographed Liz & Ryan’s journey together since their engagement session in 2009, and have had the honor of seeing them again, every year, for new celebrations from their wedding, to maternity photos, to newborn pictures, and the fun family sessions that followed! Just in time for their 6th anniversary, we planned a beachy sunset shoot at the Outer Harbor with the whole crew and I love the images we created together. Check them out below!
