whimsical and bohemian outdoor michigan wedding
 

kalamazoo, michigan | rachael + luke

take one look at Rachaels vibrant and whimsical bouquet for her Kalamazoo Nature Center wedding and its like you have been transported to an Alice in Wonderland novel.  rounding off the bohemian vibe was a greenery filled flower crown, jewel toned bridesmaid dresses, and brass glass boxes for details.

Rachael and Lukes outdoor michigan ceremony felt like it was out of a fairy tale forest.  surrounded by their closest family and friends, these two embraced the nature around them. you couldnt help but feel like you were in your own magical world. 

 
lincoln park conservatory elopement
 

Samantha + Cameron | chicago, illinois

elopement.  just the three of us.  the whole lincoln park conservatory to ourselves at sunset.  

excitement.

anticipation.

joy.

this was my very first true elopement i have had the opportunity to document and i cant imagine a better venue or couple to do it with.  it just felt different.  there was a calm that took over the conservatory as the said their vows to each other.  a surprise old text message that the other didnt know they saved.  talking about their future.  it was intimate. it was special. it was raw. it was real.

just the two of them because each other was all they needed.

an elopement doesnt have to be to some magical land far far away (however if you are going to iceland, or greece or something i definitely wont oppose)...it can be right in your backyard.  the smaller the better in my book. no frills, just the people most special to you in a place that hits close to home. its your wedding day.  make it special to you.

 
downtown peoria il pere marquette wedding
 

kayla + matt | peoria, IL

one of the things i am most grateful for are clients who trust me.  like truly truly, i take you into a run down back alley warehouse place for couples portraits and you say lets do it, kind of trust.  industrial, janky, non-traditional...thats my love language.  there are so many things people will tell you should do on your wedding day, but i say do your own thang honey! 

kayla and matt are two of the most genuine people i have ever met.  people that become instant friends.  they are infectious.  i could say a million good things about these two.  they fit each other like a glove.  every moment of their day was something special and yes i cried so you know it was good.  its always the dads. they just get me!
