Christine and Jason in Chicago

In September I got to photograph my good friend Christine’s wedding in Chicago.  They got married in Millenium park near the Buckingham fountain.  The weather was perfect and the bride was goregous.  After the ceremony we ran to different spots in the city for an awesome photo shoot.  I hope you like the fun pics we took!

Jenny & Johnny tie the knot

This summer I had a great time flying to Chicago to photograph Jenny & Johnny’s wedding.  The tied the knot a beautiful little church that Johnny’s parents had gotten married at some 40 years ago.  Jenny’s dad drove them away in his hot red mercedes with the top down.  We then proceeded to have a great time at the Westin in a private tent all decked out.  I love going to Chicago and spending time with such great people.  The photos don’t look so bad either !!!

I love Chicago

Last weekend, my husband and I got to spend a little time in Chicago.  We loved it!  Chicago is such a great town.  The people are so nice and the city is beautiful.  Mike and I stayed at the fabulous Hotel Felix in downtown. We went all over the place : Sears Tower, Roosevelt fountain, Millineum Park and the Navy Pier.  It was sad to leave such an awesome city, but it’s good to be home.

Valerie & Brian wed in Brand Park

Valerie and Brian tied the knot at Brand Park in Glendale in August.  They were so sweet and fun.  Their reception followed near my house in Burbank.  The bride wore an amazing Betsy Johnson dress with shoes to match.  Gotta love Betsy!  Danielle and I had a great time and I love the pictures we got.
