Gertha and Alex | Engaged | Wrigley Building Chicago | Olive Park

It is no surprise that I absolutely love Chicago, especially when I get to take photographs of beautiful people while being there! I drove to Chicago, so excited to meet Gertha and Alex in person for the first time.  Gertha contacted me about photographing her wedding, after photographer a few of her family members weddings.  I absolutely ADORE her family so getting to be a part of another Saint Louis Family wedding is a huge honor. 

Gertha and Alex are so sweet together. They are natural and they make each other laugh, a lot, which makes for an extremely fun session.  After photographing their engagement session I can totally see why they love each other so much. Alex adores Gertha, and she him. The wedding is going to be so full of love, laughter and a lot of family!

I can't wait for their July wedding in Hoffman Estates!

Rachael and Dan | Awaiting Baby Grant

Since having a baby of my own, I have recently become SO interested in doing any type of portrait session involving babies. Maternity, newborn, hospital sessions, you name it! I love the little baby toes, their hair, their soft skin and I especially love all of their little noises. 

I was so happy when Rachael contacted me to do her maternity photos.  Rachael and Dan were one of our amazing wedding couples back in 2014 (what?!) and they'll be celebrating their 4th anniversary just before their due date! I was so glad I could capture such a special time in their lives.  There is noting more exciting than expecting a baby, especially your first little one.

I love what I do and I am so happy that I can create lasting memories for people that mean so much to me! Can't wait to meet baby Grant and touch those little baby toes!!
