Happy December!! I cannot believe Thanksgiving has come and gone already. But what I really can’t believe is that I’m still working on leftovers… leftover pie that is. Pumpkin, walnut, berry, apple, you name it, I’ll eat it.
What better way to officially start the weekend than with a wedding as lovely as this? Michelle & Jonny were married in Chicago this past summer and though it feels like just yesterday, I’m sure the cooler temperatures have them dreaming of weather as perfect as they had that day. Besides the warmth of the day, there was an even warmer blanket of love covering them from every direction. Michelle wanted Jonny to see her for the first time on the lawn of the home she grew up in. As her family looked on from the front door and through the windows, I could literally feel their hearts growing with happiness. There is a respect that Jonny has for his wife that was so beautiful to see… a deep admiration and a love to be desired by all.
These two have a very special place in my heart and if I tried to tell you just how special, my words would fall short… and I’d get all emotional about it, too. Ugh, girls. I’ve been on a beautiful journey with Anca & Jonny as we have some legit history together—history that makes me count my blessings and swells my heart THIS BIG.
Is that you Friday? Already?! Scratch that… Is it seriously almost mid-November?!! Good heavens. “Fall” in Florida is always busy wedding season and I’m almost near the end. This year has been such a blessing for us in every way and I’m so thankful & proud of this little business of mine.
We’re all finally feeling better over in the Lupu house and what better way to celebrate than with sharing this amazing couple’s engagement photos?! I had such a blast exploring the city with these two and getting to know them both. They were so easy to photograph and I walked away thinking that’s exactly what it should be like. Engagement sessions are always my favorite because I get to spend a few relaxed hours just photographing two people as they are.
For the second part of their engagement session, Diana slipped into a to die for LRD (way better than an LBD, if you ask me) and we made our way over to the Fourth Presbyterian Church.
Their love. Their Chicago high rise. Their style. This engagement shoot. THIS couple. Clearly, I’m obsessed in love with everything about these two. Their wedding and this shoot happen to be a personal favorite of mine and it’s most definitely safe to assume that my camera can now die a happy death (but please don’t die, camera. I love you.). And that would be me, playing it cool.
Happy Monday all! Here’s to a new and fresh start to what’s sure to be a beautiful week! I’ve had so much on my mind lately and I thought I’d share in hopes that I’m not alone (please tell me I’m not alone!!). As a mama to an active little baby boy, a wife, and a business owner, my life feels like one big balance beam. I feel like I constantly struggle with decisions and my entire day consists of a never ending to do list.
Some of you may know this already, but Adi and I spent a lot of time in Chicago this summer photographing some pretty amazing couples. Michelle & Jonny were our first engagement shoot there and what a great beginning they were! We loved their sweet stolen glances at one another and their humble hearts that love and serve the Lord so much. It’s not often that I get to do engagement shoots with my husband and we had an absolute blast capturing this beautiful couple and their love.
I know we’re two weeks into September, but happy September, everyone!! I PROMISE you that I have felt a shift in temperatures here in good ol’ always warm South Florida.
