Kathryn and Ryan are soon to be world travelers for 7 months.  That's right, folks, 7 months!  How cool is that?  So before they head off to exotic places like Argentina, they needed to have their engagement photos done.  A couple hours later into the engagement session, we had explored the not-so-exotic, but just as beautiful, Chicago, tangoed and laughed.

Kathryn and Ryan, I can't wait to see your photos of the world!  In the meantime, enjoy these.

I photograph Carrie and Edward's wedding in a couple weeks and I am STOKED for it. One of my strengths as a photographer is my ability to relax people in front of the camera, but Carrie and Edward relaxed me.  Ellie, their pup, helped too.  She's a sweety pie.

Every so often during the shoot, I asked if there was a special photo or vibe they wanted to capture, and Carrie just smiled and said, Whatever you think best." Let me tell ya, this is music to a photographer's ears.  *Contented sigh*

And, um, while I'm pretty sure Carrie might kill me when she sees her fun running photos, I HAD to post them.  I can't stop laughing every time I see them. Not just a little laugh...I'm belly-laughing.  Carrie is so beautiful, even when she's being a complete goofball (Edward, you're not so bad yourself).  Yay to goofballs!

It's going to be a fun wedding.

I met Sarah, through one of my other brides, Kara, when I told Kara I was looking for a vet. Sarah, aka Dr. Kanagy, is fabulous and my dogs adore her.  (By the way, Sarah, Winston and Murphy are coming in to see you this Friday for vaccinations.)

I love my job and the opportunity to meet fantastic people! 

Another thing I love is when I'm able to capture photos like these.

Sarah and Fred, I can't wait to photograph your wedding.

Great session! It looks like you had fun. I like the shots from the park the most, especially the one with them between the rows of trees.
