Burlap and Bells in Black River Wisconsin where Eliza and Chris got married was a DREAM. It was a chilly day in the woods where everyone was dressed un fun colors and wrapped in blankets and they ended the night while dancing under the string lights and making s’mores. Eliza and Chris love the outdoors so this was the perfect venue for their big day. And can we take a moment to appreciate Eliza’s dress?? How incredible was it? I still am doing a happy dance just looking about how amazing she looked ..read more

Trying out something new and sharing the sneak peaks I have been working on from Anna and Mike’s wedding here! It rained the entire day but that did not stop the fun. Between the full dance floor (with 6 groomsmen leaving the night with ripped pants from dropping it too low) to running around in the rain post ceremony with Anna and Mike, it was such an awesome day!! #bensenvilleweddingphotographer #bensenvilleweddingphotography #whitepinesgolfcourse #whitepineswedding #whitepinesweddingphotography #whitepinesweddingphotographer #chicagoweddingphotographer #chicagoweddingphotography #oackparkw ..read more

When Kat and Dave first reached out about wedding photography, they mentioned how they love the film look. They wanted something nostalgic and I was happy to deliver. Sometimes on a wedding day because so much is happening, I don’t always get to be creative. My first priority is always to document. I was so excited to get the chance to shoot like this! It is definitely one of my favorite galleries ever. On top of producing images I am super proud of, it was just an overall awesome day. Great group of people who were up to have fun from the moment we started! And they all just made my job of do ..read more

Jackie is the cousin of one of my previous brides and she knew she wanted to work with us after we did Katie and Jason’s wedding. Which is just the biggest compliment!!! I also LOVE Katie and Jason so anyone related to them is also just the best. I could just gush about them all! And Chris, he just adores Jackie. It has been so sweet to see them interact between their engagement session to their wedding, hearing stories from their friends and family about their relationship during speeches. I feel super lucky to be a part of their story! I also have to give a big shout out to Smith’s Central ..read more

I was SO excited when Korrine and Eric’s wedding day finally came after all the emailing Korrine and I had done. I felt like I knew her and we only met the day of her wedding!

Hailey and Dennis had to replan and envision several different versions of their wedding thanks for covid. But the reschedules and new plans were so worth the wait! When they got to have their big wedding celebration it was everything they could have wanted and more <3 While it was such a stunning day my absolute favorite part was the joining of their families.

Cassie and Shaan had such an incredible day full of such special moments details!! Like a photobooth at their reception space or the photos that played during their first dances. Or when Cassie shared her father-daughter dance with her step-dad who was never really considered anything but Dad. That had me in tears! Or when Shaan asked Cassie’s mom to have a dance. Ugh. I am tearing up just thinking about it! I also loved how we ended the day with a photo of Cassie and Teresa who was a past bride of mine! And we ended their night with a photo from their wedding with the two of them. Full circle ..read more
