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

Lincoln Park | Chicago, Illinois | Gabriella and Jose • It was a cold spring day when we met with Gabriella and Jose for their engagement session in Lincoln Park, but that didn’t stop these to from warming up to our cameras. Okay.. that’s about the cheesiest line I’ve ever delivered on this blog but I’m totally cool with it because it’s true. The camera loved these two — from their outgoing personalities to their love for one another to their natural ease at just being themselves. Even when it came to lying down on the boardwalk, these two were up for anything and that’s exactly what we look for in a client. And now that we’re finally getting our lives caught up from having our baby we’re having a chance to share these two (and many other blog entries) with the world! Thanks again guys! We can’t wait for your wedding! Stay tuned for many more blog entries, coming soon!

Much Love,
Cathy and David

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
