Lauren M. bridal party


Alright, folks get ready for some more gorgeousness - because Lauren had a group of stunners for her bridal party as well! Lauren's wedding day was pretttty hot, so everyone opted for their hair all the way up. Check out oh about a million photos of her ladies and their updos!

Lauren's maid of honor Becca opted for something a little different than your standard low-set, off to the side updo - I think it turned out pretty well, and Becca totally rocked it!

Shoot with Towner Photo


I've worked with the very talented John of Towner Photo a few times now, and the guy does not disappoint. Check out this batch of gorgeous photos from this past shoot we did together:

Our beautiful model is Nikeshia (Nike for short), who was as sweet as can be and totally rocked it to help get us some really amazing photos. 

Amy M. wedding photos


Julia of I M Fotography was nice enough to pass along her beautiful photos from my lovely client Amy's wedding that took place this past September. During what was a 4 wedding weekend and a quick getaway to Purdue for the Notre Dame game, getting Amy and her family ready didn't feel like work at all. They were so sweet and lovely I am so happy was lucky enough to take part in her special day. Take a peek at these beautiful photos and be sure to leave some love for Julia!

Punk shoot with Towner Photo


I recently started working with John of Towner Photo - who I happened upon while researching projects to wiggle my way in on. I am so happy I did because the guy is crazy talented. Another new contact I made is my new favorite fashion stylist Joze Rodriguez (stay posted for more collaborations with him - he rocks). Anyway, take a peek at these amazing shots John took from our punk themed shoot a few weeks back -- you won't even believe that he just recently went full time with photography!

Looking forward to working more with these two!

Right Now On Repeat

Featured on Green Wedding Shoes

Yay! I haven't even been allowed to share photos from this yet, but here are the sooo totally gorgeous photos by Ashley D Photography of our Autumn Woodland shoot from just a little ways back. Wedding planner Carlene of Naturally Yours Events was of course the brains behind the operation -- but not with out help from the rest of the amazing crew! One of my new favorite florists Field & Florist provided the stunning flower arrangements; including a fern adorned necklace that she made on the spot for our "bride." Speaking of, Meghan was not only our gorgeous faux bride (posing with real-life husband Eric), but she was also the talent behind the invitations/paper goods for our shoot (she just launched her company - Two Little Birds Press). Putting together the perfect fall wedding wouldn't have been complete with out Elysia Root Cakes who provided our beautiful wedding cake, and our to die for vintage table top and furniture rentals; which were provided by the lovely Nimble Well (tabletop) and Shadow Box Dreams Vintage Rentals (furniture). Besides loving every single thing about this shoot - we also did a bonfire with the coolest s'mores bar ever. Scope out the photos for yourself and then definitely show some love for the oh so talented group of vendors I was lucky enough to work with!!

(I provided both hair and makeup on this one!)

Elizabeth M. wedding photos


I had the pleasure of helping to get Elizabeth ready for her big day this past August. She was one of the loveliest brides I've been lucky enough to work with. Makeup artist Jen Brown of Nika Vaughan Bridal Artists was the jelly to my peanut butter and helped doll up the girls as well. It was such a gorgeous day at such a beautiful, green venue smack dab in the middle of Chicago. Although, apparently I'm not allowed to say where... weird, but true. Haha - any way take a peek at these gorgeous wedding photos of the day by none other than the über talented Christy Tyler.

Elizabeth, thank you so much for letting me take part in your special day - it was so fun getting you and your bridal party ready! And Christy thanks for sending such a fabulous bride my way! : )
