Today was supposed to be cloudy and rainy but it ended up being such a nice day that Pixel and I decided to walk around Uptown and snap some pictures! It was really a nice surprise and it felt so good to pick up the camera for fun and not for work. Sometimes you have to remind yourself why you began doing what you do and for me that was because photography allows me to slow down and see moments that I may not necessarily see in the usual hustle and bustle of life. It was good to be reminded of that today. Enjoy some of the sites and springtime in Chicago below:

Brent & Briana’s wedding day was such a joyful occasion and 100% them! They filled it with little details of things the love, like cuff links of the groomsmen’s favorite fandoms, a cake topper of their favorite Pokémon characters, and Briana dying part of her dress purple. The flowers and venues were beautiful and the food was absolutely delicious thanks to Greg Metcalfe and his awesome team. It was also such a blessing to witness how deeply they were loved by the community around them. There were lots of tears and laughters during the speeches! Everything about the day was beautiful! Thanks for letting me be a part of it! Here is a glimpse of the day below:
It may have felt like the surface of the sun that day, but I had so much fun with this shoot! Taylor has been one of my best friends for 8 years and it was an honor to be able to shoot her engagement photos. It brings such joy to my heart to see her find the perfect match for her, in Robbie. I couldn’t be happier and more excited for these two! Check out some of my favorite shots below.
We couldn't have asked for a more beautiful day when we did Juliana's senior portraits! Praise the Lord for the rain clearing up for a few hours! Juliana is a senior, designer, photographer and a dancer. We took her photographs at The Market Common, which happens to be her favorite place to take photos! It was so much fun collaborating with her! Here are some of my favorite shots.
Carolyn and Jim's day was beautiful! Their ceremony was held at the First United Methodist Church in Myrtle Beach, SC with their reception at the Peanut Warehouse in Conway, SC.

Here is a glimpse of the day!
