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).

The pool through the hotel was awesome—probably the biggest pool I’ve ever seen.

Jess & Paul | Apple Picking Engagement Session

Last fall, I met up with my dear friends, Jess and Paul, for a little wine tasting and apple picking in Western Michigan. Jess and I met when I lived in Chicago, and we clicked instantly. I’m absolutely over the moon about heading down to Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic this week to photograph their destination wedding this coming Saturday. I LOVE destination weddings (especially in February). Bring on the beach!

Thoughts of Fall

After traveling to New York, Chicago, San Francisco and Costa Rica over the past few weeks, my sense of season is a bit off. I can hardly believe we already have snow on the ground, and I already miss my nightly walks with Jeff through the neighborhoods by our place (though I suppose we now have the option of picking up a sled and heading to the hill behind our place).

Props to the fashionable Kat Cooper for hanging out with me on Michigan State’s beautiful campus in early November to capture the height of amazing colors.
