lincoln park conservatory elopement

Samantha + Cameron | chicago, illinois

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




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) 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! 

Red Rock Canyon Las Vegas Engagement

lyss + rory, red rock canyon, nevada

these two are the reason I do what I do.  they are the most genuine people you could ever meet.

lyss loves people. 

like, all in loves them.  while this day was about them, I found lyss talking to me and antonio (yes my hubs got to come along too!) about our future and giving us such godly and wise advice that we will cherish forever. 

rory is her rock. 

he is the calm, cool and collected one as lyss would say and right now he is in medical school in the freaking Caribbean!  how jealous are you!? rory has such a kind heart and loves lyss so well.

these two have the best love story.  they have been long distance for most of their relationship and are always supporting each other going after their dreams.  they both started off in Illinois and then headed their separate ways.  lyss went to work with high schoolers at a local church in Las Vegas, while rory pursued medical school in the Caribbean. 

this trip was full of adventures from the las vegas strip, to the beautiful Red Rock Canyon, to a rare patch of las vegas greenery at Floyd Lamb Park.  since I was able to bring the hubby along it was like a giant double date.  we had so much fun and I seriously cannot wait till their las vegas new years eve wedding.  yes. I said new years eve. in las vegas :)
