2018, a round up!

It is finally time for a much delayed 2018 round up. I know I am a bit late in posting this, but I have been resting up after a busy year. You see, it was a big year for me. 2018 was the year that took me to Guatemala for my first international wedding and to Ohioโ€™s Cuyahoga Valley for my first National Park wedding. It was a year that allowed me to experiment a bit more with my photography and take more risks; it was also a year that led me to photographing my first surprise proposals.

It really was such an exciting year that was filled with so much love, trust and fun. As always, it was such an honor to document it all and I am ready to see what 2019 will bring. I have a feeling it is going to be a fun year!

In the meantime, take a look at some of my favorites from 2018.

Thanks for another year of trusting me to document your biggest days. I am forever grateful.

Cheers!

Jane and Kevin are married, Part 2!

Oh hey, here is Part 2 of Jane and Kevin's super fun wedding. In case you missed it, here is Part One. Once we got to Oak Brook Bath and Tennis, it was time to have some fun. All of their guests were waiting for them and it was an absolute blast to photograph. The band, Hey Jimmy, really got people moving on the dance floor to the point that there was almost no room to take photos, but Karina and I prevailed!

But first, let's look at the details. I mean, aren't they incredible? Fleur Couture did an amazing job!
