Florence, Italy

I got to spend some time in Florence, Italy today (while I am here photographing a story…) and just thought I would share two images with you. I have been blown away by the beauty of everything around me, and inside of the main Duomo was just stunning! Look at those paintings! I can’t wait to get back here and bring my wife…

Happy Thanksgiving to everyone! I hope you have a wonderful day filled with family or friends, surrounded by the people you love, and your heart filled with thanks. I am missing my family, but we’ll celebrate next week. I do have a lot to be thankful for…

Love Never Fails Giveaway Wedding Preview

Everyone, if you haven’t already met Gina and Jordan through their story…meet them in images from their wedding! This past friday (11/11/11) these two got married in front of their family and friends after overcoming many obstacles in their relationship. I heard many stories about Jordan’s commitment through Gina’s sickness. I heard stories about Gina’s commitment to her family, and her will to “fight” during her medical issues. I was very glad to be a part of this celebration! Look for a full post hitting the blog in the future. Until then, here’s a preview! I love the last image…especially when you think about all that they have been through. Congrats to the lovely couple!

That’s my beautiful cousin and her husband. So proud of them both.

Molly and Steve Wedding Preview

Yesterday was a beautiful day for a wedding in Chicago! Especially for November. Molly and Steve, and their families, put on a great party. I loved the classic, timeless look of the wedding. Here is a quick preview of the day. The only thing is that I wish you could smell the florals (and not just look at them). With rosemary, mint, sage, and other herbs added into the flowers, these were by far the best smelling bouquets ever! Perfect for fall. I can’t wait to show you more of Forget Me Knodt‘s floral creations (including the boutonnieres made with hops!).

The Kleimola Family Preview

Before this shoot I was looking back at images from 2009…the last time that I photographed the Kleimola family. While we are great friends with these guys, and watch their kids grow up every day, it is crazy to see how much change has happened since their last session. I am honored to get to photograph and document their lives. I know I will have more to say in the full post, but until then, enjoy the quick preview!

The Rice Family

So if you missed the preview of the Rice family, go have a look… We had a lot of fun running around the Chicago Golf Club, letting the wind blow us here and there, and getting some great family shots. This family loves to have fun, and with eight kids…I’m sure there is never a dull moment! I love capturing special moments between kids and their parents. These photos really make my heart melt. Enjoy!
