Life in Instagrams: Summer 2014 Edition

Happy Fall, friends!  Gone are the days of sundresses and sandals (even though I refuse to put them in the back of the closet just yet).  The cool air off Lake Michigan is bringing in the absolute need to have hot pumpkin drinks in the morning, leather boots, and our favorite scarves.  As Wedding season is slowly winding down in our neck of the woods, our next year couples are getting ready to take their Engagement pictures and start all the detail planning 2015 holds for our wonderful clients and friends.  Even though I will still be holding out for an Indian Summer until late Novemberish; here is my life in Instagrams: Summer 2014 Edition….

 THERE ARE SO MANY THINGS TO LOVE ABOUT LIVING IN THE CITY, THE LAKEFRONT (LAKE MICHIGAN) IS DEFINITELY AT THE TOP OF MY LIST

Love, love, love Chicago during warm weather.  There is so much livelihood in the city, and you can basically do anything, see anything, and eat anything that suits your fancy.  I love jogging and biking the lakefront with this cute guy, who is training for his 6th Chicago Marathon this October!  Go Pete!

THIS GORGEOUSLY INTIMATE WEDDING WAS CELEBRATED WITH FRIENDS, FAMILY AND THEIR DOG (HARLEY)

I love every wedding I photograph, just as much as the one before, and the one after (sort of how parents don’t have a favorite child;).  Tanya and Eric’s intimate wedding was planned in less than 2 months because they just wanted to get married.  Their love was a beautiful love to document, and their rings were some of my favorite details!

THE DRESS, THIS COUPLE, THAT DANCE

Marisa and Tony’s beautiful Wedding was full of gorgeous gorgeousness.  From the soft pinks, to the romantic pictures taken of the two at Dominican University, to the overflowing flower cascading candelabras at their reception– this was one amazing event.  The groom even choreographed a dance for his bride at the reception.  Swoon.

HE MAKES THE SWEETEST SOUNDS WHEN HE SLEEPS, AND IS THE MOST HAPPY BABY WHEN AWAKE

Meet my newest nephew, Marcos.  He is almost 12 weeks now, loves living in Brooklyn, NY, and is intrigued by his big brother.  He is just the sweetest!

BESIDES PHOTOGRAPHING WEDDINGS ALL SUMMER WITH ME, MY AMAZING HUSBAND TURNS OUT TO BE QUITE HANDY

Aaagggghh, the deck.  The huge project we didn’t realize was so huge until after we were in thick of it.  This was our summer project and we just finished it just in time for cold weather:)  We plan on using this space often and can’t wait to start enjoying it!

EMILY… A STUNNING BRIDE, INSIDE AND OUT

This summer Wedding was so beautiful in every way.  I loved photographing Em and Matt’s gorgeous Wedding at Drury Lane and loved the significance their Wedding Day holds.  To see more of their Wedding, you can click here!

‘THE OCEAN STIRS THE HEAR, INSPIRES THE IMAGINATION, AND BRINGS ETERNAL JOY TO THE SOUL”

Michelle and Neil’s romantic seaside Wedding was held at the lovely Pink Shell Beach Resort in Florida.  Documenting sugary sand and a forever kind of love is exactly how I like to spend my work day.  Congratulations to one of the kindest couples around!  (See you soon Pink Shell Resort…xo)

ONLY THE BEST FOR ASP COUPLES

Only the best for all my couples.  Your Wedding Packages just may contain all things Kate Spade and bubbly…. just sayin;)

MAY YOU ENJOY THE LAST FEW HOURS OF SUMMER WITH SAND UNDER YOUR TOES, SUNSHINE IN YOUR FACE, AND IN THE ARMS OF THE ONE YOU LOVE
