Matthew & Jennifer ~ Wedding

So here it is folks!  The full post of some of my favorite pictures from the beautiful wedding of my cousin Jennifer to Mr. Matthew Sutton.


My sister Lizzy traveled out to New York with me and helped out with some of the photography work on the wedding day.  Thank you Liz, you are the best!

Can we assume by this picture that these people know how to have fun?  I think so.

Matt's dad Eric is not only a super cool guy that does photography, but also had a killer car for them to pull away in!  (I might post a picture of that some other time.)

I am not sure if they were posing, or giving me a death threat if I posted any silly pictures of them.  I am hoping it wasn't the threat, cause if it is....then I am toast! :o)

These bridesmaids were so easy to work with due to the fact that they were constantly smiling/laughing.  Thank you ladies!

Steve and Faith invited Lizzy and I to stay at their house over the weekend.  They definitely have the gift of hospitality.

These two just go together so well!

Like peas in a pod.

Like a hand in a glove.

I think you get the idea! :o)

I hope you enjoyed looking through these pictures.  I know I enjoyed attending and shooting this wedding!

The two cutest ring bearers

Okay, so as the title of this post indicates, these guys were the cutest ring bearers ever!

They were ready to take a picture whenever I was, and yet they were all-boy, bouncing around, having fun at all times.

Oh, and did I mention they are twins?

No, they are not for hire, but these little fellas would make a killing if they decided to go into professional "ring-bearing" :o)

Naperville w/friends

I have been to downtown Chicago a number of times and I love the many places to have photo shoots, but I had never realized how amazing Naperville is until last Monday!

Rosa and David showed me around the area, all the amazing little shops, the beautiful river walk and parks....etc.

I so want to do a photog meet-up in Naperville sometime!  If for nothing else, so that you guys can experience Le Chocolat du Bouchard.  Shop of fine chocolates and amazing drinks!

Mine was the Chocolate Cherry Chiller in the front, and I would have to say it was the best drink I have had in my life!   Seriously!

Rosa chose the Rasberry Creamsicle Chiller

Thank you David for bringing me to this amazing place of goodness! :o)

I may be a little backwoods, but I had never seen a entire store that only sells tea leaves.  Not coffee beans, not cappuccino...just tea.

Thank you David for the wonderful background! :o)

Anybody want to get married at this place?  I would love to shoot a wedding here!

Oh, and not only are the grounds beautiful, they also have about 10-15 tanks from different wars!

We ended the day with Five Guys burgers and fries.  My first taste of them!

Rick & Lizzie - Engagement

So here it is, the promised post of at least five pictures from Liz and Rick's engagement session.

We decided to go with a casual picnic theme, seeing as we will be getting formal pictures at the wedding in about two months.

I know this is my sister, but still, they were so fun to shoot!  I only wish all my couples were as easy going and relaxed as these two.

Enough jabber for now...here are the pictures!

The marriage of my cousin Jennifer to Mr. Matthew Sutton was such a pleasure to be able to attend in the great state of New York.  And not only did I get to attend, they so kindly chose me to do the photography for their amazing day!

Here are a few pictures that I really liked from their shoot.  They make such a cute couple!

P.S. - For all the photographers that read my blog, this couple was amazing!  Every time I was about to ask them to change their pose a bit, they did it on their own before I could get the words out!

She had a beautiful flower arrangement that was simple, yet stunningly fitting for her.

Awww, aren't they adorable?  

Hope you guys are having the best honeymoon ever!  I look forward to sharing the rest of the pictures with you later on.

One more sneak peek

You know, I may just keep feeding these pictures through from the engagement session one at a time!

Just kidding.   I will post at least five together once I finish the editing process, scouts honor! 
(Wait a minute, I never was a boy scout!) :o)

Anyway, here is another photo that I really like from the shoot.

Sneak Peek - Rick & Lizzie Engagement

I was working through the pictures from Rick and Lizzie's engagement session today, and I just couldn't help but post this one. 

Keep your eye out for a longer post on this session sometime in the near future!

Great minds...

They say great minds think alike, so I wasn't really surprised when six of our Savos Strings group showed up in matching outfits.   It was pretty funny though that none of us planned this. :o)

Thanks to Luke for getting the picture for us!

A very random image

The other day, my sister asked me to grab a picture of the sweet new cell phone cover that her fiance bought for her, so what else was I to do?  Maybe I will have a future in product/advertising photography! :o)

Fire Hero Challenge

The American Red Cross Fire Hero Challenge was held several Saturdays ago, and I, of course, brought my camera along when I stopped by to see some of the competition.

You can tell that these guys were really intense about who was going to win the first place on the course.

For this part of the course, a fireman had to hit a small target down with a jet-stream of water.

And here, the fireman is hauling a heavy hose to the top of the scaffold before racing down the stairs and ringing the finish bell.

The Reel Fires crew did a great job of filming the whole day and capturing the thrill of the race.
