Mary and Rohn Schmidt's Mad Hatter Wedding

I was thrilled to be asked to capture a talented cinematographer and photographer's wedding. What an honor! Rohn proposed to Mary atop a glorious mountain in China, and the two are the cutest pair! The love between them radiates through to each person they meet. Their intimate Mad Hatter themed wedding took place in a forest with details curated by Mary Louise herself. I was beside myself with the kind guests, the gorgeous planning, and the sweet and simple mood of the wedding. Nothing was planned, and everything was ideal! Check out their GORGEOUS affair below!

Nicole and Mike's Armour Mansion Wedding in Lake Forest, IL

There came a time in my career where I wanted to start booking more weddings with couples like Nicole and Mike. Sweet, kind, and with an excellent eye for details, these two blew everyone away; myself included. Peek below for their GORGEOUS Lake Forest Armour House wedding, with details curated by The Flower Girl Company, and a stunning cake by Deerfield's Bakery. I am just beside myself looking back on this day! When Mike first asked Nicole to be his girlfriend, it was on a card that he left on her doorstep after he ding-dong-ditched her. Years later, they are as happy as can be! The crowd was an amazing group of kindhearted people, and the mood was just glorious. I hope to shoot more weddings at the Armour House in the future! <3 

Mom + Dad's Anniversary Session

When your parents are married for 25+ years, you start to realize how special each piece of family history is. For my mom's wedding anniversary present, I photographed my family's wedding memorabilia, along with fragments of items collected along the way to the present moments. On their wedding day, my father wore a pink bowtie, which is just now coming into fashion again. He has always been a bit bashful about it. My mother wore a vintage lace dress with a bow in back, found at a local thrift. It's funny how these trends circulate throughout the years like a tornado, just as the one they saw off the balcony view on their August wedding day. Peek their gallery here to see the special moments they have curated throughout the decades of devotion. <3
