At the stunning location of the Armour House in Lake Forest, Illinois, Kris and Lisa had a sweet, intimate wedding. It rained all day and very hard and when we needed it to stop for family photos and couples photos, it stopped. Gizmo, the couple's adorable dog joined the wedding party and Kris impressively took care of most of the coordination of the wedding. Everything turned out beautifully and they ended their day by leaving in a classic car. What a stunningl and wonderful couple!
These two are stunning people and I got to photograph them in stunning locations. I felt like I saw the best of Mexico in the shortest amount of time. I was honored to photograph Adriana and Abraham's wedding in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico. Before that I was able to have a fantastic tour of Mexico City with my dear friend where we ate at the famous, Pujol. So when I arrived to San Miguel it felt like going from the new world to the old and we happened to be there when the celebration of San Miguel was commencing so it felt truly special being here. I was completely charmed by this city and to add to the fairy dust sprinkled over this wedding, the lovely couple decide to get married at a vineyard/resort that has fields of lavendar, olive trees and of course, grapes. Adriana stayed at the famous Rosewood hotel and it was like a hidden oasis from the city, which is already an oasis. Everything was so lovely and this is my first Mexican wedding so I wasn't prepared for the 6:30 am party end time.The bride performed a flamenco dance as a surprise to her new husband and of course, there as lots and lots of dancing. I was able to skirt away at 2:30, but this was an amazing wedding that charmed me from the get-go.
When you book a session with me I highly suggest some at-home-shots and then off to a location. It gives you the flexibility to have some images in a place where you are comfortable and then to a location with a great backdrop. I love this little family. I happened to meet Becca my freshman year at college and we never really saw each other after that. 15 years later we find that we are living in the same city and it turns out she has the cutest little girl. Sis is full of great emotion and expressions which made for a wonderful family session. Fall has been full of fantastic family sessions so far and I continue to shoot friends old and new!
I've always wanted to photograph here and when Jessica Zimmerman, a floral designer and event planner from the south, contacted me to do a family shoot here I didn't hesitate to say yes. Our friend Becca from Becca Blue flowers connected us and really this shows how great the wedding and art community can be so wonderful.
Camp Wandawega was everything I hoped for and is styled perfectly down to the tube t.v. in the lounge. I really enjoyed meeting Jessica and her crazy cute family and getting to finally see this amazing place!
