Gilson Beach | Chicago, Illinois | Jess and Neil • Jess is a math teacher and Neil is back in school for nursing. But both of them are all about their family and friends. That’s something Cathy and I always look for when people hire us. For us, weddings are more about family and friends than flowers and dresses. It’s important to us that our clients feel the same way. That’s how we knew that these two would be a perfect fit for us. And it doesn’t help that they were up for anything, from running like crazy people, to laying in tall grass (and hoping they weren’t getting covered in bugs). We cannot wait to be a part of their wedding in July!

Much Love,
Cathy and David

  • Lori Herrin - Tried to pick a favorite but I loved them all.

Montrose Beach | Chicago, Illinois | Teri and Shelby • Teri is actually the niece of our friend Janet Stephens who is a photographer in Lafayette, Indiana. We’ve known her for a long time so we were completely honored when we heard that she recommended us. Teri is an OB/GYN and it was really hard not to scream that Cathy was pregnant at their engagement session. Shelby is a computer programmer. And when they first contacted us they told me they were board gamers, netflix obsessed and in love with obscure Sci-Fi. I knew they were a good fit for us right then and there! We cannot wait for their wedding in July!

Much Love,
Cathy and David

Chicago, Illinois | Emily and Paul • He proposed to her at sunrise and so they only felt it made sense to do their engagement session at sunrise, too. And we agreed. Even if it meant getting up super early, it’s the little things like these that make it all worth it. And North Avenue Beach is always an amazing location for a session at sunrise. So we told them to bring a blanket and themselves and something warm and we’d meet them there. Thankfully they were up for anything and we definitely made them work for their session and had them get in some morning exercise with running and jumping and more running. Thanks guys for being such good sports and we cannot wait for your wedding in August!

Much Love,
Cathy and David

  • Lori Herrin - Beautiful photos! As always!

Valparaiso, Indiana | Megan and Steve • We’ve shot at Aberdeen Manor at bunch of times over the years — Kylie and Ryan, Valerie and Rob, Kara and Matt — but never with anyone who live next door, or at least almost next door. That will change in April when we shoot Megan and Steve’s wedding there. Megan and Steve live right down the street. We met with them on the way down south to my parent’s house in Bloomington, Illinois. Cathy was going on a craft retreat with my mom and I was planning to work more on restoring an old Vespa of mine with my step-dad at his garage. It also happened to be the day we had found out we were having a baby! They had no idea, but suffice it to say our emotions were high and I’m sure we were a little giddy, kind of crazy, maybe nuts. Thankfully these two were okay with that and had a ton of fun with us walking all over the place to take photos in their neighborhood. When we shoot their wedding Cathy will be into her third trimester. It’s so crazy to even think about. We’re thrilled to and elated to spend the day with them and cannot wait to shoot their wedding!

Much Love,
Cathy and David

  • Megan Kosiara - I did not realize that was the day you found out about the baby!!!! We can’t wait to see you in April! And wish you all the best with baby boy!
