Room 1520 | Chicago, Illinois | Chelsey and Rudy • We still remember finding out that Chelsey and Rudy lived upstairs from Meredith and Ulises, a past couple of ours and had shown interest in our work before even finding out about that connection. To be honest though, that was a small reason as to why we knew these two would be such a good fit for us. These two have been nothing but fun to get to know as we got closer and closer to their wedding. Even more so, it was an absolute joy to be a part of their wedding day. Even with the rain that tried to sneak up on us time and time again (though never succeeded) nothing could dampen their spirits. And as we left for the night, they gave us each a big hug and got right back to partying (and I’m sure they did for the rest of the night). Thank you guys for being such an amazing couple to work with. We hope to see you again in the future!

Much Love,
Cathy and David

Chelsey and Rudy’s Wedding

Aberdeen Manor | Valparaiso, Indiana | Megan and Steve • We absolutely love shooting at Aberdeen Manor. The staff is awesome, and we often get to work with our friends from Trans Audio (who always do an impeccable job). It seemed crazy that we shot their engagement session the day that we found out we were having a baby, and then at their wedding Cathy was almost 8 months pregnant. And now that I write this, next to our sleeping son who is just 3 weeks old, I am shocked even more. How time flies. I might have shown every single guest at this wedding, pictures of our ultrasound (I was even worse at Christine and Mike’s wedding — which I shot two days after he was born). And without the baby bump, you never would have known that Cathy was pregnant. I told people that she could go into labor, hand someone the baby and keep shooting. She’s incredible. And so were Megan and Steve. They’ve been so incredibly kind to us and were so excited to find out that we shot their session the day we found out Cathy and I would be parents. It was so hard not to tell them, lol. Thank you again guys for being such a fun couple (and family) to work with. We hope to see you two (and your daughter) again for photos some day down the road!

Much Love,
Cathy and David

Grant Forest Preserve | Long Lake, Illinois | Alex and Ben • Another backyard session near our home on Long Lake at the Grant Forest Preserve! This was the last session that Cathy shot with me before our baby was born. And even if I tried to tell her to stay home and take it easy, it wasn’t going to happen. “Take it easy” is just not who my wife is. Right before their session, I even took a couple of maternity photos! Alex and Ben were awesome to work with and we’re so excited to shoot their wedding in August. I have to say that we were in love with Alex’s red dress because it totally popped in the photos. We always love it when couples choose bright colors for their outfits, but these two took it to the next level! Thanks guys! See you soon!

Much Love,
Cathy and David

Grant Forest Preserve | Long Lake, Illinois | Darby and Andrew • We’re always excited when we book a sibling of a past client, and Darby is no exception! We shot her brother’s wedding a couple of years ago. It’s nice because they know who we are, know how we work and are good to go when we get them on the phone. We’re also thrilled when a couple takes advantage of our backyard sessions (we give a discount for couples who are up for a session at the forest preserve near our home in the northwest suburbs). It saves us a drive into the city and for couples wanting a natural look, it’s a super easy location to work with. We had an amazing time with this couple and we’re thrilled to be a part of their big day. See you guys in September!

Much Love,
Cathy and David
