I always adore photographing weddings! The air is filled with love and you can’t help but adore the details that go into everything. Kara and Bobby are a prime example of this!ย 

This beautiful back yard wedding had rustic, fall, light & airy vibes which made it super easy for the mood to set in right away!

We started off by getting ready at the Aloft Hotel in Bolingbrook

The Bridal dress is from Wolsfelt’s Bridal in Aurora

The Bridal shoes are from Etsy by Kaileep

The Grooms Formalwear is from Men’s Warehouse


The very first moment Karas dad got to see his baby girl in a wedding dress before the reception. Needless to say, she was breathtaking!

The Reception was held at the beautiful church of St. Scholastica parish in Woodridgeย 

The Groom and Bride got to lock eyes on one another for the first time that day and it was like falling in love all over again!

Saying I do was pretty easy too ๐Ÿ˜‰


We have to show some love to our fun and amazing bridal party!!!

After the Reception, we headed on over to my favorite spot… Cantigny park!!!

Cantigny Park in Wheaton is a perfect spot to take incredible wedding photos that will make you feel as if you went to a different side of the country. How could we not go???

Enough of my rambling, time to enjoy some Wedding photos down below!!! ๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ˜‰


One of my favorite parts of all this was the DONUT WALL!! WHAT?!?! Our Bride Kara made sure to let us know that this should be a memorible moment to get. Pretty sweet if you ask me ๐Ÿ˜‰

The cake was designed by Karas mom, With love โค๏ธ

The first dance to me is really emotional. You share space and the same movement with the other person, you get to pause life for just a couple of minutes to really feel blessed with the people in your life where you can feel safe and loved throughout your whole lifetime!

Thank you Kara and Bobby for being so in love with each other!!! We felt like a part of your family for that day and we are truly grateful to have worked with such amazing people ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ’•
