Meredith and Ulises | Chicago

Chicago Family and Wedding Photographer | Available Worldwide

This is a maternity session. Right now you’re saying. Wow. No way. I would have never guessed that from the baby bump in that first picture. But what you have to understand is how special of a maternity session this is to us. This is our first maternity session (not including their mini-announcement session) that we’ve ever done for a past client, one of our first clients to have ever booked us and quite possibly the most connected bride we’ve ever worked with. From time to time rather than playing the Kevin Bacon connection game we play the Meredith and Ulises connection game. I can name at least a dozen weddings we’ve shot that are in some way connected to this amazing couple who is near and dear to our hearts. This is also the SIXTH time we’ve worked with Mer. Yes. And we’ve already got two more potential sessions with them lined up. We’ve  considered starting some sort of frequent flyers club and naming the card after her. Okay so that might not be true, but still. Six times people.  To say that we consider these two family is an understatement. We are so thrilled and so happy for them. And in case you are a past bride and thinking maybe you should get maternity photos or baby photos or family photos the answer is a resounding of course, yes please, let me get my calendar.

Their baby room is themed around the beach and the ocean. They went back to their destination wedding location and took a bunch of pictures and then had them printed and frame. It was a really cool and wonderful idea. I have this feeling when we decide to have kids we might do the same thing with Disney World. 🙂

I’m not usually one to post ‘detail photos’ but this and the one above are just too darn cute to pass up. 🙂

Bella may have made an appearance. 🙂

Or maybe two appearances. 😉

I posted this one as a sneak peek and five seconds later it was her profile photo. 😀

That picture above is sneaky. Ulises is a tall guy and Meredith is less than five feet tall (we have a short brides club btw.. seriously.. raise a hand ladies) and is also a professional singer. And yes we might gush anytime someone asks us about her and her amazing HUGE voice.

While Cathy was taking this super lovely photo I may have been in the other room with Ulises while he did a demo of their 70″ 3D Quattron. Maybe. I may have also been bugging Cathy for the past week or two to get us one for our living room. For some reason her eyes always glaze over…

This one is my absolute favorite so I saved it for last. 🙂

One last thing you should know about these two. If you are ever lucky enough to know them and go to their house, the inner staircase is quite simply a gallery of our photos. And then in the living room is this absolutely gorgeous 40×60″ canvas print from their destination wedding in Florida. It’s a complete ego trip, to be honest. But here’s the thing. Even if there wasn’t a single one of our photos on the wall we would feel special to them, like family, and just as welcomed. That’s why I’m so happy to have them as clients and more importantly, as friends.

Much Love,
Cathy and David
