Lisa & Joe Latourell Falls Elopement


I was already super excited to shoot Lisa and Joe’s 4th of July wedding and after chatting we discovered that we had a similar dilemma when it came to getting married. They couldn’t imagine getting married without their friends and family but the draw of an elopement surrounded by nature was a dream they both had. So we hatched a plan for their spiritual elopement! It was super special watching Lisa and Joe give their vow’s to one another under the power of a waterfall. My fiancé Zach handled their behind the scene cell phone shots while I did my best not to fall into the river with my gear! 

Keep an eye open for our Cannon beach and Saddle Mountain engagement session we did the day before which i’ll blog soon. We’ll have to do some behind the scene shots as well! It was a once in a life time shoot with two of the best people. 

April & Josh Indiana County Line Orchard Wedding


We adventured into Indiana for this beautiful summer wedding with April and Josh. They held their ceremony under a huge tree surrounded by family and friends. We explored the orchard and ate as many homemade donuts we could!

Amy & Toby - Humboldt Park Chicago Wedding

Photographing Amy and Toby's special day reminded me of everything that I love about Weddings. Seeking to echo their fondness for adventure they chose a beautiful outdoor setting for their ceremony at Humboldt Park. From there the outdoorsy theme was upheld with a trip to Garfield Park Conservatory for some portraits and an spontaneous ride down a fun slide! Their day culminated with a reception that reflected intimacy and creativity as close friends and family gathered to celebrate in the Humboldt Park Field House which was decorated with handmade details and personalized notes for guests. This experience left a lasting impression on me and I hope these photos help serve as reminder of this amazing night.
