Jeff and Rebecca

I realized at some point last night that I never posted a show for Jeff and Rebecca! If I had to sum up thier wedding in one word I don't think I could do it. They were so incredibly in love with each other and SO MUCH FUN! Rebecca got ready at the most beautiful hotel in St. Charles and her girls were so energetic and fun. I know every bride has "the glow" but Rebecca absolutely sparkled. Her smile radiated and you couldn't help but be caught up in her excitement! September 29th is historically the most beautiful day of the year, and it lived up to it again this year. It was so perfect!!

This wedding was a little emotional for me, because it really marked the end of my summer shooting with Sarah. I just want to say THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart to Sarah for the training, love, energy, advise and time she has poured into me this summer (and over the last year of our amazing friendship!). BethLaurren Photography wouldn't exist without her. Sarah: You are an amazing woman and I'm so grateful for not only your friendship, but for your mentoring. I never thought when I met you last year that we would be at this place just a year later! You have allowed my dream to become a reality. And you have no idea how much that means to me - how much YOU mean to me. Thank you seems trite for what I really want to say to you.

Fall Colors!!

One of my all time favorite times of year is the fall. I am addicted to the explosive colors that come alive in nature. This year has been especially amazing for me because I leave my house about 5:30 every morning and drive to work in deep darkness. BUT! I get to my office, and watch the sun rise every morning through our conference room windows, overlooking the Busse Forest Preserve, O'Hare and the city skyline. I can't explain the beauty of the mist in the preserve hovering through the trees with deep orange's and pink's behind it!

Nick and I went to the Morton Arboretum in Lisle this past weekend. All I had with me was my tiny point and shoot camera, but still managed to get some amazing shots.

Happy Fall everyone!!

Scott and Tatiana

I just realized how long it's been since my last post! I'm definitely way behind on posting photos!

I will re-start my blogging with this amazing shoot with Scott and Tatiana. They are getting married in March, and I absolutely can not wait for their wedding! They are such an incredibly fun couple, and we had a blast shooting! They make each other laugh so easily, and they were just so CUTE! They both attend Olivette Nazerine University and drove up to Naperville for the photos. The riverwalk may be my new favorite place to shoot. It was so pretty and secluded even though it's a public place.

Scott and Tatiana - you compliment each other so well, and even in the short time I got to spend with you, I could see that the love you have for each other runs deep. I'm so excited for the wedding!
