Engagements

Mike & Danielle Engagement Session | Old Town, Chicago

We met over Facetime. It was one of the most hot and humid days in Chicago's summer. Traffic was horrible. All odds were against us, yet it was one the the most enjoyable engagement sessions I've ever shot. Danielle and Mike's love is passionate, honest and full of sincerity. Watching these two trot around Chicago reminded me how sweet that time of being engaged is.

SO eager for their New Years Eve wedding in Minneapolis. These two - the ideal couple. Thank you x 1,00,00,000 Danny and Mike for letting me capture you being you.

Sam & Joe | Engagements

First time we met, Samantha gave me her extra free Punch Pizza card because she heard how much I love the place. Following that, I went to their darling St. Paul home to meet their cute cats. We then caravan to a park where we laughed about hight differences. These two are the definition easy going and low maintenance. On top of that, they are crazy in love. Cannot wait for their wedding this summer (for more reasons than coal fire Pizza being the dinner item)

2015 | Year in Review

 

This has been the year of newness. This summer was my first full blown wedding season, I dived into styling and art direction for small businesses, tried my hand at social media management, rebranded and launched a new site. WHOA. To be 100% honest, 2015 has been the best year lived. I love newness. I love being uncomfortable. I love being forced to grow. Lessons have been learned. tears have been shed, happy dances have shared. Cheers to 2016 and all you will bring. 

Some of the best decisions I've made this year:

- I got married to my best friend. THE BEST DECISION.

- I attended Adventure & Story workshop hosted by Gene and Levi. I learned way more than I could process in a day (thank goodness for notebooks)

- Purchased the Sigma Art 50mm 1.4 lens for Canon. I've always been a 50mm lover, but this lens take it to a whole new level.

- While editing, I've switched from mainly listening to music to podcasts. Why not learn as you get work done? I've really loved the entire Serial series and also Invisibilia

- I invested in relationships. Real, raw, let's do life together relationships. Nothing is worth more than that.
