tim + abigail // an industrial prairie wedding at bluestem hall in urbana, illinois

tim + abigail opened bluestem hall in urbana, illinois + their wedding was the very first nuptials to christen the incredible venue. i am not exaggerating when i say that photographing at bluestem hall was a bucket list item i didn’t know i had + i just cannot wait to return. bluestem hall is a glorious union of rustic + industrial set in beautiful prairie lands that offer the most lovely setting for portraits. tim + abigail have incredible style — a bold color palette, delicate vintage china + autumn splendor set the scene for their october wedding. abigail donned a custom made gown + her top knot + swiss dot wedding veil made my heart flutter all day long. and if i wasn’t already a spoiled rotten wedding photographer, we scored a DOUBLE RAINBOW during evening portraits! HUZZAH!

Cheers,

devin + nichol // a handmade, rustic winery wedding at postlewaits in canby, oregon

 

LOVE THIS WEDDING.

I've known + photographed Nichol + her family since like, 2011 or something.  The Shubins are my second family + I've watched Nichol grow from a quirky teen just trying to figure life out to the gorgeous, grounded lady she is today.  I've photographed her senior portraits, her performance as Gabrielle in High School Musical, a bunch of random shoots featuring her guitar or our latest thrift store scores, so many pictures of her + Devin as they dated, eventually their engagement portraits + now their nuptials.

It's a glorious privilege to photograph such a special day for a group of people you love so dearly.  Nichol was too sweet to include me in the bridesmaids gifts + a few of the getting ready portraits, which really was a theme through the entire process of planning her wedding with Devin.  Very few vendors were brought in, rather the couple looked to family + friends to source as much as they needed  as possible...Nichol's gown was handmade by her dear friend, Travis of Dahlia Designs.  Her dad built much of the vignettes for the reception decor, she + her mom spent months stockpiling the colored glass goblets, another family friend took care of the wedding cake + yours truly handled the photography and floral design.  Devin + Nichol's pastor officiated the ceremony while my own stud-muffin husband guided them through their first time as husband + wife taking communion.  The DJ was from the family.  A friend grew tons of hops for the tables capes.  On + on it goes.   It was a labor of love that gives tribute to how much Devin + Nichol are adored + how much joy we all took in their marriage!

Hope you enjoy these as much as I do! <3

jordan + haley // a new year's eve wedding at the pearl district building in tulsa, oklahoma

it's nearly 2018, which means it is high time to share jordan + haley's crazy awesome new year's eve wedding from last year!!

i met haley at a wedding photography workshop years ago + was so flattered when she asked me to photograph her wedding!  there is something just amazing + perfect about photographing another photographer's wedding...they just get "it" - from working with you on scheduling all the important moments to creating the best details to capture to trusting you completely when they're in front of your camera.  jordan + haley are SO fun + we had such a great time running around tulsa during their portraits.  haley made all my dreams come true + donned a gold bolero from free people over her wedding gown...she even kept the festive motif going with the most adorable kate spade sneakers.  their venue, the pearl district building, was a dramatic canvas that was so perfect for a new year's eve party.  practically gold-bombing the joint, the atmosphere was everything anyone would ever want for a midnight celebration.  i especially loved that the couple opted to include shades of blue, a color i don't get to see very often in wedding design!  i gave jordan + haley major bonus points for including quotes from LOST, Harry Potter + The Secret Life of Walter Mitty in their tablescapes.

i hope you enjoy this set!

and happy 2018, kids!

scott + tiffany // an edgy, whimsical wedding at the joinery in chicago, illinois

scott + tiffany were married in october at the joinery in chicago, illinois.  i met tiffany a few years ago when she came to one of my wedding photography workshops.  she seriously is one of the coolest + sweetest people i have ever met.  before the wedding day, i received a care package filled with home made cookies (seriously, homegirl makes THE BEST COOKIES EVER!!), a hand-knit head scarf (SHE KNITS!) + some fun beauty treats (she is so kind + thoughtful!).  i was so humbled + honored when she asked me to photographer her wedding day.

the couple's incredible wedding style was out of this world -- i felt like i've been waiting for this wedding my entire career.  i love when a couple embraces who they are + creates a wedding day that is truly their vibe.  tiffany made all my dreams come true in her whimsical, flowing blue skirt + lace topper from chantel lauren.  she was a heartbreaking beautiful bride + so fun to photograph.  watching her + scott together was the sweetest...they are so totally in love + have the best time just hanging out together.  after their adorable first look, we all hopped on a graffiti covered school bus with rock music blaring, + headed to several different locations in chicago for portraits.  the entire day was a blur of happy + rad portraits, an emotional ceremony + the coolest party (with the most delicious tacos for dinner!).  

i'm so excited about scott + tiffany's wedding day + can't wait for you to take a peek! enjoy!
