Rachel + David | Deer Path Inn Wedding

Chicago will always have a special place in my heart, so I was thrilled to get back there for Rachel and David’s wedding during Memorial Day weekend. Rachel and David—thanks for letting me spend a beautiful day with you and your wonderful friends and family.

And the Gold Coast Orchestra was insanely good—they completely filled the dance floor, which is always fun for a wedding photographer.

Grand Loft | Shabby Chic Wedding Inspiration

I put together this shabby chic wedding inspiration shoot last May with an amazing group of artists, but somehow I’ve held out on sharing it with you until now. As we inch closer to wedding season, I didn’t think it would be fair for me to keep this one to myself any longer. I hope you find some inspiration in the photos below.

Many thanks to all of those who helped make this shoot happen:

Tiff + Eric | Chicago Urban Engagement Session

I met Tiff almost five years ago during my first summer living in Chicago (wow—has it really been that long already?), so when she asked if I could make it out to shoot her engagement photos with her fiance, Eric, I couldn’t wait to get there. Tiff and Eric—thanks for an amazing weekend back in the city. I’m so happy for you two!

Jess & Paul | Majestic Colonial Destination Wedding

Note: If you’re getting married at the Majestic Colonial or a similar destination resort, I’d love to talk to you about photographing your wedding. I love to travel, and I’m often willing to barter travel to make your wedding photography as affordable as it would be hire someone locally. Get in touch to learn more about special rates for destination weddings.

This will be one of my longer wedding posts—I can’t resist sharing the beautiful photos from Jess and Paul’s destination wedding at the Majestic Colonial in Punta Cana. I’ve been looking forward to this wedding for a long time (it’s the first destination wedding I’ve been to since my own in November 2010). It was so nice to have a little February escape with an incredible group at a fabulous hotel. Jess and Paul, thank you again for putting together the perfect destination wedding.

If you were a guest at the wedding, you can view the wedding gallery and order prints in my shop (the password is the bride’s maiden name, all lowercase).
