MALLORY + ERIC | MARRIED : CLASSIC CHICAGO WINTER WEDDING Chicago and Illinois Wedding Photographer

May 4, 2016

Many many years ago, I began following the photography journey of a vivacious and life-enhancing woman I only knew briefly at that point (follow this one…she was the sister of my best friend’s brother’s wife!!!).  A few years after that, she was one of the first people I contacted when Michael proposed to me- I knew that Beth was the only one for us!  I would have changed our date for her in a heartbeat- but she was available!  It continued a beautiful friendship that has meant a lot to me over the years, and turned into her breathing a lot of life and help into my business the past few, and I am forever grateful for it.

In February, I got to second shoot for her on one of her winter weddings and I adored that time with her. It was an unseasonably warm day, and it was my first wedding in 5 weeks, so I was so grateful for the opportunity! Mallory and Eric, and their loved ones, were absolutely delightful to spend the day with.  They are a lovely couple that have such a wonderful connection with those around them- it was truly beautiful to watch.  I spent the morning with Eric and his guys, and loved the day! It was really fun to be able to concentrate on the things a second shooter gets to concentrate on (details, smaller groupings, etc) and have the main pressure of the day not rest on me- I really enjoy second shooting!  From the grooms jacket, to the stellar fun of the bridal party during portraits (including stick baseball!), to the daddy-daughter first look before the ceremony and beyond, it was a day to remember.  I am so excited to share this day with you, and so honored that my sweet Beth Laurren asked me to join her!
