On May 4th I kicked off my wedding season with Cat and Jon at the Morton Arboretum. All week was calling for rain but we totally lucked out and had a little sunshine! I absolutely love it when clients elect to have a First Look because it allows for the couple to have a quiet, intimate, and personal moment together before their busy wedding day sets in motion!
Cat and Jon were a dream to work with and are my first Practical Wedding couple. I can’t wait to share more of their day. These two were both so excited to celebrate their marriage and start their journey as husband and wife together!
A few weeks ago I read this blog post written by a fellow photographer where she shared “Notes from the Universe”. They are little daily inspiration notes sent straight to your inbox from the Universe. Best selling author Mike Dooley came up with this idea to help motivate and inspire you to reach your goals whether personal or professional. You can sign up for free here. I look forward to the inspiration and perspective sent to me everyday. Here’s the Note I received today….
This note really resonated with me because being a photographer has allowed me to be myself. Being a photographer has allowed me to get the creative juices flowing again and use the right side of my brain more. Waking up to notes like this everyday is like having a personal cheerleader and I love it!! You deserve your own personal cheerleader too! You know you want one!!! Go check it out :)
Ever since I joined the vendor directory over at A Practical Wedding, I’ve come across the most genuine, AWESOME couples who are planning their marriage celebrations! Today’s couple and session is no different. I feel so lucky that I’ve connected with like-minded people and have the pleasure of getting to know them as we prepare for their wedding day.
Matt and Katie are two of the nicest, genuine, and laid back people I know. When we first met over Starbucks I knew we’d be a good match for each other! I was elated when they chose to hire me to document their wedding day.
We thought it would be nice to shoot their engagement photos somewhere significant to them so they chose Millennium Park. This is where Matt proposed :) We had an awesome day complete with a gorgeous glowy sunset after previous weather reports predicted rain.
I’m so excited for what the future holds for these two as Katie is just about done with her PhD in Psychology and Matt is a successful IT guy. If these two decide to have kids they’ll probably be little geniuses!! I’d love it if Matt and Katie moved to city so we could hang out, they’re that awesome!
Matt and Katie, I’m so excited for the two of you and can’t wait to see where your future leads! I can’t wait to document your marriage celebration, it’s going to be soooo much fun!
