DePaul Orientation Leaders 2013

One of my favorite jobs of all time: the DePaul Orientation Leader video. Check out the good-lookin’ 2013 OL’s!

Monica & Dan got married!

Monica and Dan celebrated a lovely day of family, bubbles, dog in tuxedos, and the color blue. They put tremendous work into making this wedding come together – it turned out beautifully. I hope you enjoy seeing their love as much as I did!

Katie & Erin

Katie has come in front of my camera a few times before…this girl is a lovely person to be around and always introduces me to the best people. Her friend Erin was visiting from California and so we decided to snap some photos before graduation rolls around.

Here are the highlights of our playdate outside:

Dan & Brigette

A few weeks ago, Dan contacted me about taking pictures of his surprise wedding proposal. By the end of the month, I found myself at the nature boardwalk in Lincoln Park with a lovely afternoon, perfect weather, and a stunning view of the skyline. And Dan? He found himself engaged.

It should be said that I have taken many pictures of the words “yes, I do” but this was the first time I had ever witnessed anyone say “yes, I will.” It was one of the most beautiful, intimate, energy-filled things I have ever seen – I am tremendously honored and thankful to have been included in this beautifully joyous moment. So much love!


Ben in Spring

Ben, like the rest of the world, is on the brink of big changes. Spring is unfurling itself, hope is rising, and the sun is coming. Ben and I were both raised in the Northwest, migrated our young adult selves to Chicago, and landed in the same residence hall where we met. Later we found out that Ben’s mother and my aunt lived on the same floor when they were in college back in Seattle. Small world. Big connections.
