About

The trust we share with our clients is one of the main reasons we are able to capture the honest moments we do. Part of that trust is fostered by getting to know one another on a human level (and oftentimes becoming actual real life friends! Woo!) We'd love to share more about the two of us here to get the conversation started!

Before I even get to their talent, I have to share what kind, loving, & genuine people they are...

They exude warmth and happiness - are down to earth and true to themselves every step of the way. They care deeply about every couple they work with and take such pride in being part of their special day. The magic of a wedding day and the process of planning it is never lost on them.

Hello there!
Meet Christy.

Professional reader of the room & empath, founder & lead photographer, detail-oriented type-A virgo, and undisputed queen of befriending your grandma.

Christy's warmth, openness & down-to-earth nature regularly has strangers sharing the most intimate parts of their life story with her while in line at the grocery store.

She is equal parts creative/artistic as she is analytical & organized. Her optimism and exceptional ability to always see the best in people can often bewilder her more practical, realist other half, James. 

Those closest to her knows she loves to play jokes on people and feels best when she's making others laugh.

favorite part of my job?
getting to have a killer dance party at the end of every work day!

Meet James.

Cool & collected under pressure, always ready with a funny quip to break the tension in any room, dogs & kids love him, and the undisputed winner of best belly laugh.

James' grounded and calming presence helps put those around him at ease & gives him an uncanny ability to capture people‚Äôs true selves. 

His friends would describe him as loyal, funny & honest, and his kids would describe him as their human jungle gym & constant companion.

His dad jokes and child-like zest for life are constant reminders for others not to take themselves or life too seriously.

favorite part of my job?
getting better photos of a moment than christy. I'm just a little competitive. ;)

Giving Back

For us, running a successful business would mean nothing if we weren't using it for good. We believe wholeheartedly in giving back a portion of our proceeds every year and have since day one.

  • We donate a portion of each wedding we book to PAWS Chicago, where we adopted our sweet old rescue pup!
  • Each holiday season we sponsor a local Chicago family through I Grow Chicago's holiday gift program.
  • Our hearts also lie with helping youth with a strong desire to attend college make those dreams a reality through UNCF.

But, seriously, do. :)
