Katie and Justin wanted a wintery forest setting for their engagement session, and the weather and location couldn't have been any more perfect. I have wanted to shoot these trees since I first hear about them, and was so excited when Katie suggested it. To stay warm, they enjoyed some hot coffee in the middle of the session, which helped to combat the 14 degree temps.

Enjoy this winter wonderland enchanted forest session!

2017: a year in review

c3582-2017bestof-018.jpg

It's a good thing we're photographers because it's hard to find words to describe 2017. Personally and professionally it was a year of firsts and tremendous growth. Thanks so much to everyone who chose to work with us in 2017. I don't think we could have made it through such a crazy year without so many awesome new and returning clients, and we have some big changes coming in 2018.

Here are a few of our favorites from the past year, Enjoy!

Kelsey + Ryan

dd8b1-img.jpg

Our LAST wedding of 2016, Kelsey & Ryan's wedding somehow still managed to sneak in some peak fall leaves (see all that vibrant color below!). Although it was a chilly mid November day, Franklin Park Conservatory was as beautiful as ever, and we were so thankful when the couple agreed to step outside for portraits (and even again after dark!). The ceremony was sweet, and the reception was a blast. The live band made guests flock to the dance floor, and the couple danced through night as their friends and family circled around them for the last song. See it all below - plus a few photobooth photos for your entertainment! :)

Baby Seamus

It's been a while since we've posted. You may notice we've been a little quiet on social media and that's because not only did we have an insane summer and fall (didn't everyone?!), but we're also getting ready to welcome a new addition to our family - a baby boy due in February. I never imagined how much time we would spend preparing for this little guy, but it consumed most of our free time the past couple months. I'm sure we'll flood your feeds with photos of him once he arrives, but until then I'd love to share some work from 2016.

I thought it might be appropriate to share some lifestyle and newborn photos since we're on the topic. First up is baby Seamus. I was so excited to finally meet him (about a week and a half early!) after getting to know his parents during their fall maternity session back in October. So for fun, I thought I'd share both sessions together (bonus! there's a puppy too). Enjoy the cuteness!
