So incredibly thrilled and overwhelmed by the opportunity to not only work with Chicago's finest, but to be featured on the front page of Style Me Pretty!  Pinch me! I have been waiting for this day for so long and I can't believe it's really happening.  We worked so hard on this incredible shoot and I'm so happy to share it with you all.

A rainy day in April didn't stop these two from having a stunning wedding at the incredibly gorgeous South Shore Cultural Center.  And can I just take a second to gush over these photos by Hello Rose Photography, I mean seriously!!  They are absolutely dreamy.

Spring Styled Shoot

My floral dreams came true for this spring styled shoot I did with a couple of amazing partners.  When Christy Tyler Photography approached me to be a part of her Lighting Workshop for Photographers I was thrilled.  I decided that I was going to totally go for it and create what I've been wanted to do for a while.  A romantic, whimsical inspirational shoot filled with soft florals and gorgeous candles.  This was my first time working with so many incredible people.  Everything was so perfect!  

Big shout out to all the amazing people who worked on this styled shoot.  It couldn't have happened without all of your talents.
