Jeff & Erin's Engagement shoot

Thankfully the skies decided to clear up a little bit today and we were able to squeeze in Jeff and Erin's engagement shoot. We headed to a local park and walked around shooting the breeze and getting some sweet shots. With all of the rain that we had gotten over the last 3 days it was pretty soft out there but Erin didn't mind and hiked all over with her heels on. We had a great time and I'm really looking forward to their wedding. Here are a few pics from this afternoon.

Thanks again guys, hope you had a good time! Talk to you soon.

Ryan & Jenilee's Engagements

Well the first time I tried to take Ryan & Jenilee's engagement pictures the snow was coming down and the wind was blowing extremely hard. Well yesterday we were minus the snow but the wind was definitely around! We made the most of it though and headed down to Principal Park to get some fun shots at the stadium. Ryan and Jenilee are both big Cubs fans so it was fun to walk around the park when nobody was around. Well I shouldn't say nobody, some workers were there cleaning up after the game which made it interesting. We walked around the stadium and then found a guy that said it would be okay for us to head into the dugout and get a few shots down there too. It worked out really well and was actually a nice shelter from the wind. Following our shots at the park we headed downtown to get a few urban shots and Ryan and Jenilee were both getting into the shoot by then. We had a great time walking in some nasty alleys and climbing up rusty fire escapes. Here are a few shots from our session.

Thanks again guys, I'm so glad that we were able to get the session in this time! I can't wait for your wedding, we'll talk to you soon!

Chris & Kathryn's Wedding

While driving down to Pella to photograph Chris & Kathryn's wedding I can't say that I was too excited about the rain that was hitting my windshield. We had plans to head downtown Pella following the ceremony to get some pictures in the Molengracht. Throughout our formal pictures the rain continued and when the wedding had finished I was surprised to look outside and see that it had stopped, at least for that moment. Still hopeful that we could get some pictures in we headed downtown and walked around getting some great shots. The sun actually peeked out for a few and made it feel much more comfortable. Kathryn & Chris were a great couple and really shined when we got outside and we able to move around. Even with being a little bit shy in front of the camera Chris did a great job and you wouldn't know it by looking at the pictures! Here are a few from their day.

Thanks again guys, also you should head over to Kelly's blog to see some sweet shots she got of your rings. Talk to you soon!

Josh & Nicole's Wedding

I had a great kick off to our wedding season with Josh & Nicole's wedding on Saturday. They got married downtown at the Temple for Performing Arts building. It was an extremely beautiful setup which allowed for great pictures. We had a fun time walking around downtown getting a few shots prior to the ceremony and luckily with the exception of a little bit of wind the weather was much better than we had thought that it might be. Josh and Nicole are a great couple and a ton of fun to hang out with. Here are a few pictures from the day.

Thanks again guys for everything, even though a heads up as to which table I was sitting at during the reception wouldn't have hurt! What a bunch of rowdy bankers! :)

I hope you guys have an awesome trip to Jamaica and I can't wait to hear all about it. Talk to you soon!
