One of the things I love most about being a wedding photographer is that the couples I work with don’t just become my clients, often they become my friends. That is certainly the case with Lindsay and Christian. They are such a cool couple! I knew I liked them right when I met them. I’ve been lucky enough to have the opportunity to spend quite a bit of time with them over the last year. We’ve gone out for dinners and drinks together and I even got to attend a little shindig at their house filled with amazing German food, drinks, food made with drinks (Christian’s specialty), Rock Band battles and great company! I never got the chance to blog about their engagement session this past Fall, but wanted to add a few of the fun pics of them with “Dyna” the wonder dog (short for Napoleon Dyanamite, which is uhhh…AWESOME)! I’m so thankful to have my good friend and colleague Nick Wrzesinski join me on this e-session. I am so excited to be a part of their wedding this weekend at Rockefeller Memorial Chapel at The University of Chicago!

Oh man…what can I say about this session that would truly express how excited I am about it? I’m pretty much in love with it! I suppose that’s what will happen when you put an incredibly adorable, fashionable, totally head-over-heels in love couple on a farm in Michigan, the likes of which would make any photographer’s heart swoon! Add a creative genius floral designer and a brilliant photographer partner to the mix and you can see why I can barely contain my excitement!
Pip and Brian are fantastic! It was so much fun getting to know these two and see them interact with each other. Their loving, playful spirits made this session an absolute joy! What an awesome opportunity it was to collaborate on this shoot with Kelly Marie Uss of Fleur and Jenn Gaudreau of Jennifer Kathryn Photography! These two were amazing to work with! Kelly has an eye for details and design like few others! I adore everything she creates! And Jenn is an incredibly talented photographer and dear friend of mine. I can’t tell you how much I admire her ability to connect with couples in a manner that allows her to tell their story in a very unique and genuine way.
Vera of Videnovich Farms is such a rockstar for letting us utilize her farm for this shoot! It so great to meet her and hear about some of the inner workings and history of this family-owned farm. We are so grateful to her for allowing us to come take advantage of such an incredible property! And I am ecstatic beyond words to have Style Me Pretty feature this session their blog! This blog has long been one of my favorite places to visit and glean inspiration. It is full of beautifully creative ideas and pure eye candy! You can see the full post here!
