Fall wedding in the midwest? It doesn’t get much better than this.
There is something extra special when another photographer selects you to capture their very own wedding. It feels like a collaboration of sorts 🙂 As if I wasn’t already obsessed with my job..gah! Daniel and Bailey, I cannot stress how much fun your wedding day was for us. We were spoiled in every aspect.
It’s rare to shoot at a new venue, especially one this brilliant. There isn’t one element I would change. The Farm at Dover is curated to perfection with the Victorian Bed and Breakfast as the bridal suite, taxidermy-filled cabin for the gents, endless gardens with subtle vintage fountains and birdhouses, sigh, the list goes on…
Take a peek at the groom’s beautiful photography work here!
The rain couldn’t hold these two back from the outdoors. We still partied all night in Hannah’s childhood backyard for their reception. Even on a rainy day, I’d choose a backyard wedding!
Two hours and two margaritas into our first meet, and Amber and I knew we would be long time friends. Though my associate photographer, Stephen, was their photographer for the day I couldn’t help but crash their meetings along the way! Every single detail was curated by Amber and her mom- I’m still so jealous Stephen and Josh were there to capture your day!
Amber, you were simply glowing.

In all my years of documenting weddings, I’ve never had so much fun during a wedding exit.
The confetti spare no one…
mouthful of confetti,
confetti in their eyelids,
5 hours later I was still leaving a confetti trail across the venue.
Needless to say, it was a success.
Elly and Alex, you are wonderfully brave souls. It was worth the mouthful of confetti Elly, I promise!
Seriously though, this is the cutest first look idea. I love when our couples get creative and find ways to make their day unique. There are so many traditional elements of the day, but what we’ve found is the magic is in those non-traditional moments that make your day yours.
When the veil swoops up and swallows one of your bridesmaids… <3
Chicago Indian Wedding at the Sri Venkateswara Swami Temple
John and Namrita, it has been an honor to get to know the two of you over the past year; getting to explore New York and share your special engagement both there and back in Chicago. There are few couples who display such genuine adoration towards one another.
It is evident.
It is inspiring.
It gives us no greater pleasure than to tell the story of your wedding day; a day full bright florals, rich culture, joyous dancing & singing, delicious Indian sweets and treats, and of course full of love!
“I don’t know why I get to have you. I know I’m lucky. I know you’re special.
With you I have learned to be grateful for everything, because it is one more day that I am living my dream. And every day is unbelievable. My goal in life is to make you smile. I told you a long time ago that maybe I wasn’t the right person for the job, but you said I was. You’re good and genuine and thoughtful and honest and reflective. You’re a hard person to live up to, but I am happily taking on that challenge.”
