Thank you Janie Yoder for shooting alongside me for this big day! I couldn’t have done it without you!
Alexa and Chase…your wedding day was what a wedding day should be like. No stress, only laughter, only happiness…centered on love. It was such a blessing to witness. I’m so thankful that this day was how I started off the busy wedding season. It reminded me of why I’m in this business in the first place. Weddings aren’t centered around the cake, the decorations, the tables (of course those things matter)….but weddings should be centered around the people eating that cake. The two families coming together as one standing around the decorations. The love and laughter beaming from the tables. That’s why people throw a big party in the first place! To celebrate the wonderful gift that marriage is. To celebrate the beginning of a wonderful story between two people who want to spend the rest of their lives together. That’s what it is about. That’s what this day was about. Thank you Alexa and Chase, for being awesomely in love.
It is officially wedding season up in here and I am knee deep in editing for beautiful sessions and weddings…and I love it so much. Today I’m sharing an adorable engagement session straight from the windy city, but it was not a windy day…it was a gorgeous day! This session was oh so great….oh so great. We (Jordan came with me for the first time!) tromped around Danielle and Steve’s neighborhood in Chicago, hopped over train tracks, played on their roof, and witnessed the most insane fog we’ve ever seen. You will see what I mean below. Thank you Danielle and Steve for showing me the place you call home and for allowing me to capture your love story. You both have amazing spirits and one amazing love story…oh and amazing taste in food. The Crab Rangoon at the Thai restaurant was indeed the best I’ve ever tasted :) Without further ado…here is Danielle and Steve…we like them a lot.
