Katie+Josh | Orland Park Garden Wedding | Chicago Wedding Photographer

The best thing about Katie and Josh is that they don’t really understand how beautiful they really are. Katie was absolutely stunning in her elegant vintage lace gown. Her shoes and accessories were one of a kind from local artisans created to match perfectly. The headband is what gets me though. The headband was stunning with her long blonde loose curls. The purple and plum in the bridemaids dresses and florals were the perfect tones to complement the gorgeous garden behind the church. It was a dream of a place to shoot with the most angelic looking bride with her handsome groom. One look at them and you can tell they were made for eachother. Friends and family travelled from all over the country to share this day with them, and the day was just as they envisioned….perfect. Thank you to all of the lovely bridesmaids and groomsman who were so patient with the cold, and with us. And a special thank you to the families for making it so easy for us to move throughout your family on such a joyous occasion. And to Katie and Josh…Congratulations and may Josh keep you laughing for all the years to come!! xoxo Autumn and Melin

Ashley+Jeff | Rustic Fall CD&ME Wedding | Frankfort, IL Wedding Photographer

Everything about Ashley and Jeff puts you at ease. They are laid back and fun, but they know exactly who they are and who they love. Their rustic, fall themed wedding was exactly what Ashley envisioned, and was a beautiful representation of who they are….and it was beautiful! Her gorgeous gown was the perfect cut of lace with the most appropriate and stunning neutral colored belt that absolutely made the dress all the more pinterest worthy! Her hair and makeup was classic and elegant and the men were dressed with the same touches. The showstoppers of the evening, as if we could ever say enough about them, were the florals. BoKay always goes above and beyond, but when you are smart enough to give them creative license (like Ashley did), you get Jaw Dropping! They were classy, but on trend….followed her color theme, but the textures were more than anyone could have envisioned. The fall themed centerpieces were adorned perfectly upon each table and the strung lights throughout the beautiful CD&ME provided the perfect ambience. One stop at our photobooth and your night was complete! This was such a fun wedding, filled with warm people, and we just didn’t want to leave! Thank you so much to the McKay and Herrmann families for allowing us to photograph such a special time in your families lives. Thank you to the entire bridal party for dealing with the incredible wind, and cold….and doing it with smiles!! You were the best!! And to Ashley and Jeff…we wish you all the happiness life has to offer! Thank you for choosing us..it was truly our honor. Congratulations! xoxo A&M

Brienne+Dan | Classic Chicago Engagement | Chicago Engagement Photographer

Brienne and Dan are like classic hollywood glamour done right. Chicago is such an amazing city, not just the touristy parts, not just the landmarks, but the parts where the people actual hustle and bustle. It’s what movies are made of, and Brienne and Dan give Hollywood Starlets and royalty a run for their money. We loved our evening in THE city, OUR city and so happy we were able to spend it with them. Can hardly wait to see what they have planned for the wedding! Congratulations Brienne and Dan!!! xoxo A&M
