Audra and Luke-The Woman’s Club of Evanston Wedding

When my next couple inquired about photography for their fabulous fall wedding, I knew I was going to love everything they had planned. I first met up with the ladies at Audra’s moms townhome. It was so charming and bright! It was a great way for a photographer to be creative and get all those fun details. We then headed to a public Gazebo in their hometown. I get giddy when we go back to places that has a magical meaning for my couples. After the emotional first look and many pictures taken after, we headed to another park with a breathtaking backdrop. This fall afternoon couldn’t have been more perfect for us!

When we arrived at their venue, I knew I was going to have some fun as my creative juices immediately began flowing. The Woman’s Club of Evanston is the definition of CLASSY! You can just feel all of the history that has taken place there.

The thing that I will remember the most about this couple is the love and respect that they have for one another. They have waited for this moment for years on end and were elated to finally become one.

I really look forward to seeing where life takes these two. Until then, enjoy looking back on all of the joy that unfolded on their big day!

Devon and Steve- The Westin Hotel Wedding, Downtown MKE

Back in June, Devon and Steve booked their engagement session. Their session day came and Mother Nature was not on our side! But, I can’t complain. It was a welcomed opportunity to wait it out and get to know each other in the meantime. We did so at Lake Park Bistro over a cocktail. We connected right off the bat and I knew instantly that I was going to love working with them. Six months later, their big day had arrived. It was a tad chilly but warmed by the love of the friends and family around them. It was a perfect day. Fast forward almost a year…their love will be blossoming this summer as they welcome a Ticcioni bambino!

Congratulations to both of you on an incredible year!

Look Back at 2019

How is it the last day of another decade?! Some days really do seem long, but somehow the years still fly by. Another year has come and gone and I really can’t get over just how special this one was. I married the love of my life and on top of that, so did my little brother. I love that I get to share the same anniversary year with so many of my beautiful couples. I am so grateful to have been a part of so many big moments. My job allows me to be surrounded by love all year round! How lucky am I? I still have to pinch myself most days. Cheers to another year of new beginnings, new love, and new memories!

Wishing you all a Happy New Year!

Charlotte and Jake-Lake Forrest, IL Wedding

After meeting the adorable “Jake & Charlotte” last fall for an engagement session, I knew immediately that their wedding day would be a blast. When their big day arrived, everything was going smoothly, except the weather. Mother nature decided to give us what seemed to be a monsoon! It was a bit challenging but it didn’t stand a chance at ruining this wonderful couple’s big day. Once we got through their heart-warming ceremony, the rain decided to lighten up. The break couldn’t have come at a better time. The lighting, the colors, and my couple were a photographer’s dream. This was my first time at the lovely Knollwood Country Club and I felt like a kid in a candy store. The array of details and class that surrounded this couple were spectacular. Jake and Charlotte had the time of their lives and had the perfect day, thanks to their amazing family and friends.

Alex and Olyvia-The Ivy House Wedding, Milwaukee, WI

The best man said it best during his speech, “The only thing hotter than this weather is the love that Alex and Olyvia have for each other.” Their wedding day had to be the hottest day on record in my career thus far! Let me tell you-they were both troopers and didn’t let a heat wave ruin their big day. Everything surrounding them was absolute perfection. The flowers, the venue, and their loved ones supporting them was everything they had hoped for.

I love watching Alex and Olyvia on social media and witnessing all of the fun that they have with each other. Their smiles when together say a thousand words to the love that they share! Congratulations, again, to the both of you!

Kevin and Cassi- South Second, Milwaukee WI Wedding

Kevin and Cassi are such a fun couple. The love that they have for each other is easily noticed in all of their laughs, looks, and kisses. This celebration of their commitment was a perfect time of reflection for their loved ones. They already had a quick ceremony a few months back and decided to do a vow renewal in front of all the people that care so much about them.

We started their day by heading to Carol University, where these two first met in college. After all of their years there and memories built, they knew that it would have to have a part in their day. Afterwards, we had plenty of time to go by the lakefront, the swing park, and an abandoned building. The numerous locations gave us all several different looks. It was such a treat to have the time to have some fun with pictures. Once we got to the beautiful South Second venue, the ceremony and the party were absolutely perfect. It was just the day they had been waiting for.

Kevin and Cassi – I can’t wait to watch what next step this adventure brings for you both. I know you guys have great things coming your way!!

Jessica and Jim- Wales, WI Wedding

This beautiful bride and I go WAY back. I first met Jessica when I thought Dental Hygiene school was the path I wanted to go. I went through all my classes before clinical and befriended her. She was so nice, determined, and smart. I knew she would be the perfect dental hygienist. Before I got into clinicals, I decided that it wasn’t for me and thats when I took the leap of faith of photography. We did lose touch but always stayed friends on social media. Many years later I noticed her in a relationship where she looked unbelievably happy. 

Once she got engaged to Jim, she reached out almost immediately and asked if I could capture their big day. I was so happy I was still open and I of course said YES! They had their wedding at the new and gorgeous venue in Wales, WI. Fete of Wales is stunning! I really was in photographer heaven the entire time. It really lets couples enjoy their day without worrying about photo options. 

Jim and Jessica, thank you for letting my husband and I document this moment for you! We really did have the best time creating some memories that will live on forever!

Derreck and Aimee-Waukesha, WI Wedding

This groom and I go way back to when he played baseball with my little brother as kids. Derreck has to be one of the nicest guys I know. The years have flown by but he remains the sweet, big personality that he’s always been. The way he loves and talks about his family and friends is so very special. When he contacted me to meet with his new fiancé, Aimee, I knew she would be one incredible woman. When we met up, their smiles were contagious! They beamed with love for each other.

Derreck and Aimee’s big day arrived and started off with monster storms. Luckily, they missed us completely and made for a perfect day. These two were surrounded by so much love and support, it was truly perfection.

To the new Mr. and Mrs. Krause, I am so grateful to have been a part of your big day. I know that great things await you in your future. Congratulations!

Katie and Chad – Delafield Hotel Wedding

Katie and Chad and I met a few years back while I was working one of Chad’s oldest friends wedding. Once they got engaged they contact me to share their exciting news. We met for a drink to discus their vision of what they wanted for their big day. I knew almost right away we would get along and their wedding would be something amazing. 

The wedding itself was held at the church where Chad had grown up. Once the ceremony was over we made our way to the Historic Third Ward where endless pictures options are. The wedding party rocked it and you can tell how much they meant to the new Mr. and Mrs. We then headed to the charming Delafield Hotel where the party was happening. The food and old fashioneds were flowing, along with the dance floor. 

Katie and Chad- Thank you for allowing me to be there throughout the entire time. You guys are so special and I can’t wait to see where the future will take you!

Emily and Tom-Downtown Chicago Wedding

Emily and Tom had one of the most beautiful April Chicago weddings this year, and if you have been around the area you know that was a rare thing. The day definitely represented their relationship. It was the perfect way to start their marriage. Their ceremony was in the most beautiful cathedral that means the world to them and their family. 

Emily wore a stunning and classic ballgown while Tom had the best looking tuxedo on. Those two definitely made the city look good! A musician was playing for the public that seemed to sing for these two and had the celebration going. Once all of the pictures were done, we headed to Galleria Marchetti where their stunning reception was set up and ready for their guests. With the set up with a live band, I knew this was going to be a one fun party. 

These two are such a beautiful couple who has God leading their way. I know they will have great things in their future.
