Frank & Jessica

Wedding Photography for Frank and Jessica
Wedding Date: February
Locations: Dinolfos Mokena and Plainfield Congregation Church

What a beautiful couple! Jessica made such a beautiful bride. Her dress was such a perfect fit and her hair tied back in an elegant look. These two really portrayed a day of love. I could really tell they were so happy to be taking this next step in their lives.
They really knew how to throw a party. Their reception was held at Dinolfos in Mokena. They had quite the guest list. A great amount of family and friends showed up to celebrate their day with them. With the colors of red black and white it was no wonder Frank surprised Jessica by having Tommy the Blackhawks mascot show up for entertainment. Everyone went crazy with the first sight of him.
This was truly a remarkable wedding. I was happy to be a part of it.

Naperville, IL Engagement Photography for Kristen and Michael

Engagement Photography for Kristen and Michael
Engagement Date: January
Locations: Naperville Riverwalk in Naperville, IL

This was a great session for me. Very rarely do we get to shoot winter sessions. It is bitter cold in Chicago so couples generally opt for spring, summer or fall engagement photos. Kristin and Michael decided to fight the cold and have some fun. We headed out for a few hours to The Naperville Riverwalk in Naperville, IL. Being that it was winter most families were at the sledding hill and avoided the park. It was so nice having the entire area to ourselves not to mention the newly fallen snow from the night before was fresh and clean. By the time we ended our photographs I was in love with this couple. We spent the day freezing and laughing. I knew these two were the type I could push to really try some fum things. Just when they thought they were finished I pulled a sled out of my car and asked them to meet me by the hill. They happily agreed. Coaxing them to sled down the hill with their coats off was a bit more challenging. Once I told Kristin this was her chance to push Michael off the sled as hard as she could, she was ready for anything. It was a great day and we really did get some wonderful pictures for them to cherish for a lifetime. The memories of that day will always be awesome too!
