Love at first sight is real, and Ashlyn and Connor’s story is proof. These two met while waiting in line to pay parking citations, of all things! They didn’t exchange more than a few words that day, but both were students at Georgia Southern and kept crossing paths. Finally they decided to get to know […]

Ashlyn and Connor’s Tybee Island Engagement Session

There are benefits to braving the Chicago cold… it’s photos like these!! Cassidy and Luke are my actual heroes for rolling in the snow and frolicking along the lake in negative degree temps. Our fingers and toes may have gone numb, but the pictures were definitely worth it!! These two always knew they were each […]

Sydney + Nick had just moved to Chicago from Texas. It was their first snowy winter ever, and to document the occasion we met up to frolic + freeze our butts off for photos!!! Their puppers Jax + Miller certainly had fun (see their happy faces below!) WELCOME to the Midwest, Walden fam!! I’m thankful […]

Sydney and Nick’s Snow Session

Meg and Nick!! These lovers met in spring of 2014 while waiting in line outside a Chicago bar. Meg’s first thought was that Nick was the most beautiful person she’d ever seen, and she immediately turned to her friends and told them she loved him!! When Nick gave Meg his number several weeks later, it took […]

Ashley contacted me a few months back with plans for an epic surprise proposal to her girlfriend Kari. They have been in each others’ lives for years after meeting in vet school (they bonded as cat lovers… these are my kind of girls!!) and in September Ashley knew the time was right to pop the […]

Jennifer and Alec are getting married next fall at a real-life CASTLE in England (swoon!) Due to Covid they decided on engagement photos closer to home, and we lucked out on the most gorgeous […]

Fall is in full swing, and it’s my FAVORITE time of year for photo sessions for obvious reasons! The golden colors, the pretty sunsets, the slightly cooler temps… I could go on and on. To kick off the fall season, I met up with Jackie and David in Lincoln Park for some sweet couples’ photos […]

I said it before and I’ll say it again… I LOVE meeting up with my past brides and grooms for couples’ sessions!!! Maria + Paul got married in fall 2018, and it’s true that time really does fly by because I remember their beautiful wedding like it was yesterday!! Fast forward to 2020. Maria + […]

I cannot believe it’s already September!!! Before we bid summer goodbye and whip out the fall decor and chunky sweaters, I just *had* to share my favorite photo session of the season.

Elise and Mike’s Summer Anniversary Session

Let me tell you all about this day!!! Kyle and Kurt just might be the CUTEST and most photogenic boys I’ve ever seen. We spent a summer afternoon together in St. Joseph, Michigan on a gorgeous private rooftop. The setup was boho perfection and featured florals by Molly and Clover and stunning macrame by Mari […]
