Mariah + Ray Chicago engagement, River North

I had so much fun working with Mariah and Ray. They were so easy to work with I can’t wait for their wedding next summer!

 

 

 

      

Sandra & Ivan London Central Street Cafe Wedding

Weddings can get stressful. Phew! When planning the happiest day of your life, you can feel the indescribable joy, followed by pressure that can easily stress you out. I had an honor to witness and capture a wedding of my dear friend, Sandra, who left me simply impressed. Sandra and Ivan wanted a casual wedding without compromising the beauty and fun. So they chose this super cozy venue called Central Street Cafe in London with a rooftop patio. They had a Mexican theme decor to showcase Ivan’s Mexican background. It is always a great idea to incorporate one’s roots into the celebration for it makes the celebration more special and festive. They had a very intimate ceremony with the closest friends and family. I can truly say it was most laid back and fun wedding I have been to. Great job, Sandra and Ivan, and congratulations on your happily ever after!

I can’t say enough about how much fun I had with Diana and Tomas. I loved the idea of them choosing this really cool venue with a lot of character for their anniversary session. Love when my couples get creative.

Kurt Boomers workshop in Santa Ynez, CA

239660100004

I was lucky this year and had an opportunity to go to an incredible workshop hosted by super talented Kurt Boomer had his team in Santa Ynez, CA

The workshop was hosted at a beautiful Sunstone Vineyard villa in Santa Ynez, California. The Villa, is constructed entirely from remains of buildings torn down and imported from old Tuscany Italy. it was such a beautiful scenery to take

pictures no matter where you looked. I had a pleasure to stay 2 nights at the villa in their gorgeous stone rooms. The Sunstone venue is a dream. I’m so lucky to have been a part of this gathering of incredible talent and I

am thankful to Kurt Boomer for sharing his knowledge and experience with us.
