Jes and Drew: Wedding Photographer

with one comment

About two weeks ago I had the pleasure of shooting another wedding with the amazing Kiera of Kiera Photo out in Crawfordsville, Indiana. This couple was a riot. They were such good sports with the 90+ degree weather and went trucking through fields and whatnot with us. We had such a great time with them. They were such an amazingly good looking couple and the bridal party complimented them just the same. They definitely made it easy! We got to the reception and they even had a full candy table and the bride danced to some Soulja Boy with her dad,  which tells you just how awesome they are. Congrats J+D and thanks for letting me be a part of your big day! I had a blast! (so much so that I couldnt narrow down the pictures for this post!)

This was the ring bearer. What a stunner!

We told the guys they looked like secret service…then we made them do this! Listening for orders from the girls!

Mary: Chicago Bridal Photographer

with one comment

This post has been a long time coming. I have been swamped with work so I am slowing getting to blogging all my latest shoots and some that have been queued up for a while.

Mary is a model I have worked with on multiple occasions and she always delivers! You may remember her from this shoot last year and I will be posting another shoot of hers later this week. This shoot in particular was a bridal shoot. She was such a trooper in a halter gown in the dead of winter! We actually headed out in the middle of a frozen lake. I will say she was alot braver than I was taking the first step out there (and dealing with alot of cat calls from various ice fishers) Take a look.

Check out those amazing eyes!

Winter Bridal shoots are so perfect for beautiful high key images like this one!

Havin some fun with textures.

Here you can see where she ventured on to the lake…ugg boots and all

Ashley and Joel: Wedding Photographer

with 3 comments

About two weeks ago I had the pleasure of shooting a wedding with Kiera of Kiera Photo in Indianapolis. I left Chicago at around 4 am for the drive down there. Kiera and I talked plans for the day and then headed out for fun.

Ashley and Joel couldn’t have been more fun! She looks so sweet and proper right? Well she has a crazy, fun, wild side that’s for sure! And Joel’s groomsmen kept the laughs comin’ all day long. They were truly enjoying their wedding day. I didn’t see one flicker of stress pass over their faces the whole day. That’s probably why they look so good in all their pictures! Enjoy!
