We were all set to capture Kelli and Kevin’s wedding at the end of June this year in Chicago, but 2020 had other plans. And with their big celebration now scheduled for next summer, these two planned on throwing a small and intimate ceremony in Kelli’s parent’s backyard on their original wedding date with just […]

The majority of our 2020 couples have been greatly affected by COVID-19 – from putting major life plans on hold, navigating a “new normal,” and deciding to postpone their celebrations to a time where they can dance the night away with their loved ones all under one roof. But that doesn’t mean weddings are not […]

COVID-19 has turned our (along with millions of others’) world upside down. It has disrupted plans, devastated small businesses, and instilled an unimaginable sense of uncertainty in many. We have navigated through situations we’d never have imagined. There have been many sleepless nights. But one thing continues to give us hope and is a constant […]

Elle and Tom’s winter wedding was such a dream. These two didn’t want to do a first look, so we spent the morning and early afternoon making sure they didn’t see each other while taking portraits near Millennium Park. Elle and her girls were all laughs as they sprayed champagne, popped confetti, and were cheered […]

Where do we even start with these two?? Not only are Maile and Rich incredible people with hearts of gold, but they know how to throw one hell of a party. These two just radiated pure joy and were nothing but big smiles all day. From a heartfelt first look to celebrating the night away, […]

Ed might not have been able to feel his fingers at the end of this session, but it was totally freakin’ worth it. There’s nothing like a snowy Chicago engagement session. Makaley and Jon were all snuggles on this cold winter afternoon at the Wrigley Building, but their pup was not a fan of the […]

Last September, Chelsea flew to New York to capture Ashley and Sam’s vineyard wedding, and was immediately greeted like family by their loved ones. From spending the evening getting to know everyone at the rehearsal dinner to waking up to a beautiful sunrise over the estate of Glenora Wine Cellars and eating breakfast with the […]

Winter weddings are utterly romantic and fun!! From adorable pups (be sure to follow Winston and Olivia’s Instagrams!) and amazing candid moments throughout the entire day to a perfect snowy backdrop for portraits and heartfelt ceremony, this celebration had it all (even though it was below freezing!). Lauren and Kurt are so genuine. The minute […]

Sarah and Michael’s winter wedding in Chicago was undoubtedly timeless and downright stunning. Filled with so many heartfelt and sweet moments, Ed feels honored to have been able to document their wedding story. During getting ready, Sarah read a letter from Michael, and there wasn’t a dry eye in the room. The first look took […]

Karina absolutely adored these two beautiful souls from the first moment they chatted, and had an amazing time capturing their wedding! Zoe and Andrew were all smiles the whole day, even though portrait plans had to change due to nonstop rain. UGH Chicago weather!!!! These two wouldn’t let something like weather ruin their celebration. From […]
