Chicago Lakefront Engagement Photography: Amy and Dominic

To say these two are troopers for photography is putting it mildly.   They were actually excited to go shoot their engagement session in frigid temperatures!   We share a fondness for cold weather, and cold it was!  Thank you, Amy and Dominic, and I cannot wait for your wedding!   Stay warm!!

Chicago Lakefront Wedding Photography in the Snow: Igor and Olya

Igor and Olya are happily expecting and had an intimate wedding ceremony at the Chicago Cultural Center.

After the ceremony, we ventured into the snow for a portrait session.   What troopers!   Olya wore ballet slippers and had no complaints about trudging in the snow!

This couple honestly would do anything for a photograph, and I honestly loved documenting them.

Thanks so much, you two!   Can’t wait to meet the little one!

Chicago Family Photography: Baby Parker

What do you get with two terrific parents, four adopted cats and a gorgeous little baby girl named Parker?

A house full of love.

Thanks, Rob and Christine, Parker, and the four cats whose names I cannot remember, for having me over!

Cannot wait to watch Parker grow!

My Favorite Chicago Wedding and Engagement images of 2012

I started taking photographs at age six, worked as a photojournalist for most of my life, then branched into weddings out of curiosity.

And, I discovered that I love documenting love.

I truly wish to thank my clients for allowing me to capture moments inside their private spaces, their emotions, and their big day.

Thank you!
