Kristin & Colin: Backyard Photo Shoot

My friends Kristin and Colin got married last November but didn’t get a chance to take many portraits on their wedding day. As a gift to them, we recently did a portrait session in their Chicago backyard! We lucked out with some beautiful fall weather and had a great time shooting.

Mignonette Bridal Shoot

I was recently asked by Mignonette Bridal owner Kpoene’ Kofi-Bruce to shoot some promotional images of her new dresses and for the upcoming launch of her Andersonville store late this year. We decided on Palmer’s Square for our location, a beautiful park in Chicago’s Logan Square neighborhood. We had a stellar staff and amazing models to work with! On top of that, some wonderful local talent: Flowers by Fleur, hats by Sarah Azzouzi, styling by Shanti Gomez, silver jewelry by Moira K. Lime, headbands by My Lavaliere, Swarovski jewelry by Due Sorelle, makeup by Angie Nguyen and rock star photo assisting by Elizabeth Metzger Sampson. Below are some of my favorites from the shoot!
