kathy + ulisses :: engaged!

science,  japanese gardens, and lots of love…chicago style.

kathy + ulisses are getting married! in mexico! and there’s going to be a tequila donkey! but wait, im getting ahead of myself…

kathy + ulisses are engaged! and they are loving life in chicago — enjoying being in the same city together and planning their awesome celebration south of the border. chicago was the first stop on my recent trek across the country, and i had so much fun hanging out with them, from margaritas + karaoke the night before, to the wine tasting after our session, it was a great weekend! kathy + ulisses are a fabulous + fun couple — they have great chemistry and share an incredible sense of humor. we spent the afternoon exploring the museum of science + industry and wandering through the japanese gardens behind the museum — the site of the 1893 world fair. i had yet another fabulous time shooting in chicago, and i am so happy kathy + ulisses chose me to be their photographer — i cannot wait until they tie the knot — enjoy!

kelly + sam :: engaged!

backstage pass.


sam + kelly :: engaged! :: university of maryland, college park.

i was absolutely thrilled when kelly wrote to tell me she + sam were engaged — he popped the question just weeks after kristi + jon’s awesome wedding where kelly was a bridesmaid! even more awesome, kelly is kristi’s younger sister — so fun! kelly + kristi (like most sisters) are similar in some ways, but very different in others. they are both gorgeous blondes and totally in love, with incredible, positive energy. however, while kristi + jon are total hams in front of the camera, kelly + sam are much more mellow (dare i say, camera shy?) — in fact, when i went back to look for pics of them at kristi + jon’s wedding i only had one photo of sam from the entire night! it was great to see them again, and i loved getting to know them better during our session.

they met and fell in love a few years ago while attending the university of maryland — they worked together at the performing arts center (which is how they first met) and so we started our session in the theatre. it was very cool to have all access to such a unique spot, and with so much meaning! from there we ran all over campus, chasing the sun and visiting some of their favorite spots — the mall + fountain, the sun dial, jim henson’s statue, the famed bronze testudo, and even a topiary version of the beloved mascot. it was a gorgeous summer evening and i’m so very excited for this fabulous couple!

a huge congrats to kelly + sam — enjoy!

chris proposed earlier this year in middle of the crazy blizzard and becca emailed me the very next day! i was thrilled to hear the news and couldn’t wait to meet them after hearing their story…becca and chris were as exuberant and fun as i imagined and i absolutely *loved* our session. i had a fantastic time getting to know them while strolling through a myriad of DC’s neighborhoods to capture photos in some of their favorite spots.

congrats + enjoy!
