I am so happy that I met these two.  They were smiles from ear to ear!  So happy together, so easy to be around, so beautiful.  I cannot wait for their wedding next June.  I know it will be amazing and I am so honored to be a part of it!

I always love going to Chicago to shoot.  Makes my heart happy…

 

 

Jeff and Courtney got married!/Destination wedding photography

So in Northwest Indiana I was subjected and many others to the worst winter (I feel) of all time.  Even in May it was cold and the leaves on the trees had stayed in their little homes.  Then Katrina and I stepped off the plane into just stinking heaven.  I felt like the sun was closer to the earth warming everything and making it so bright that I could barely stand it.  I realize it was from living in one eternal frigid darkness for the last several months that I had come out of hibernation.  I took pictures of everything.  Every flower, tree, sun flare that I could get my hands on.  So Utah, thank you so much for welcoming us with such open warm arms.   The reason for our visit was the wedding of one of my favorite people.  Courtney!  My fearless assistant!  It was hard not to ask her to help me on her wedding day because I have come to depend on her so deeply.   I can barely function without her.  After many strong words and Katrina telling me “if I was nice to her she would help me!”  we muddled through the day!  By the way, Katrina, there was only one road into the place.  ONE ROAD!

So the first couple of pictures are just my happy to be here in the sunshine pictures.

 

Then began the most beautiful wedding ever!  And in the perfect place ever.  Sundance of all places.  My favorite place and my favorite actor’s little slice of heaven.  Have I ever told anyone the story of when I started chasing Robert Redford  in the airport? Anyway for another day!

Then we went out for the first look and lots and lots of pictures!

and the details…    oh my!

Then it was on to the ceremony!

Then on to the reception!

It was just a wonderful experience to be a small part of this wedding.  Everything was absolutely perfect!

 

What a perfect day!/Northwest Indiana/Chicago wedding photographer

I wanted to give a little sneak peek to this beautiful couple.  It is so hard to wait and so I am going backwards trying to give a little glimpse at their beautiful day.  This wedding definitely deserves a whole beautiful blog post but in just glimpsing these are my favorite so far!

 

Sydney….no words…/Northwest Indiana senior portrait photographer

So I met Sydney first the day of the shoot!  I did a little clap in my head when I saw the red hair!  I knew with all the blooms and the green trees it was going to look amazing.  She was an absolute natural!
