Top 3 Best Spots to Elope in Illinois


Hey there, Love! Something I love (like major heart eyes) that I don’t talk about enough, is elopements! Elopements aren’t what people used to think they are. Although I love a cute little white chapel moment, going to Vegas to get hitched isn’t the only way to elope!   Your wedding doesn’t have to look like everyone […]

Summer lovin’, had me a blast… Ah, Summer. The season for travel, hanging with your girls and outdoor weddings! Summer is one of my favorite seasons because of all the possibilities it may bring! But…It’s also the season for hot days, spf and sweat.  And no one is typically a fan of those things, aren’t […]

Chicago Wedding at Colvin House | Chicago Wedding Photographer


Rachel and Cole had a beautiful summer wedding at Colvin house. I had the pleasure of photographing Cole’s getting ready photos to start the day off, and may I say, he’s got a hype group of guys! We had a blast as we made our way towards Loyola campus to one of their favorite spots for their first look. When I say Cole had the biggest heart eyes when he saw Rachel. I mean it.

When I say Cory and Cindy’s engagement session was a blast x10, I REALLY MEAN IT! I had the time of my life laughing, joking, and getting to know the two of them! It was high of 16 that day, but to be honest, the entire time they did not say anything once about the cold. PLUS, Cory was in SNEAKERS… in the snow! Honestly, the dedication was real, especially for an hour!

Winter Couples Session in Mundelein, IL


It was cold, extremely low double digits, fingers to the point of hypothermia, and red-tipped noses. However, these two? Absolutely KILLED it. They braved the cold and still killed it the entire time. We were only able to make it for 20 minutes before calling it, but it was still some of the best photos I have ever taken.

I connected with Paisley in her beginning stages of wedding planning back in October of 2020. From the second we started chatting I knew this wedding was gonna be a showstopper. This was my first time time photographing at Providence Vineyard and I sure damn hope its not my last! This venue had everything to a huge spacious ceremony space, outdoor vineyard, high ceilings with unique chandeliers, a stunning bridal suite and a balcony that was just to die for. This place overall is an 11/10 in my books! Plus, the wedding coordinator was so helpful, communicative, and nice it seriously is a huge help for us when it comes to the day of!
