Danada House Wedding | Allison + Chris

this. gorgeous. place.

the danada house and its vintage charm make my job easy. seriously. i'm still smiling about how much fun i had (sunset drive in a model a car, packed dance floor, shared cheese fries... i'm looking at you.) but my heart? it's hidden between the intricately planned details, clung to emotions that roll like tides; ceaseless ebbs and flows turning butterflies into bliss. great people madly in love. the start of forever. it's an honor to document moments like these, and the day i spent with allison and chris was a poignant reminder of why i love what i do: it's the people. their joy. their families and friends and the incredible energy vibrating through each moment. chris is a hilariously sharp and caring friend, and his dedicated love (11 years!) to allison just blows me away. she has an adventurous heart of gold and is filled to the brim in grace. i've never seen any two people so confidently centered in their love. here's to all the chapters still unwritten. a+C, it was truly an honor to document and celebrate your love alongside you.

Keith House Wedding with Nicole and Newt

These two are just about the sweetest people in the entire world. I had a blast spending the day with them and their wonderful group of friends and family. I can't decide what my favorite moment was - catching the golden hour for portraits, snacking on late-night empanadas from Chicago's own 5411 or realizing that you can't light sparklers in a hotel room (hello, smoke alarms!) Oh, those sparklers. So much laughter.

From start to finish, this beautiful day was nothing short of perfect.
