Lake Geneva WI

Pop, Fizz, Clink! Katie + Joe chose a Lake Geneva wedding where Katie has spent many summers visiting her family and still does. This lake has so many happy memories memories for her and her family that it only seemed fitting to be married there.

Katie and Joe wanted a celebration of their wedding filled with family and friends. And a celebration it was! Katie and Joe know how to have a good time and so did all of their guests.

Their wedding was styled to perfection with black and white stripes and gold accents. This whole day was so classic with hints of old Hollywood. Katie was a timeless dream in her Rosa Clara (with bow accents!) gown.  You could just tell how in awe of Katie Joe was all night by he way he looked at her.

The day was all  sparkle, glam, and love.

Katie and joe, your love is fit for an old  classic black and white movie, and so was your wedding day! We were so honored to have documented your day, and wish you nothing best a happily ever after!

So much love, Gina and Tom

    These pictures are nothing short of amazing! Such a beautiful wedding!! Love you Katie & Joe!!ReplyCancel

Check out this Chicago Newborn Photography!  This couple may look familiar and here is why… in the blog of Elizabeth’s + Matt’s wedding I promised pictures of their new little man who arrived shortly after – so here you go!

They are absolutely over the moon and rightfully so.  He was tiny, but such a sweet little man.  Elizabeth had a few things that she wanted to be incorporated if he allowed it and then let me do my thing so she could be surprised by her gallery.  Mr. G did not disappoint.  The baseball mitt that he fit into perfectly was hers from when she was younger and autographed by Ronny Santo.  Daddy is a pilot so I just knew I had to get him in the hat!  I just love that he woke up a little during his session to share some smiles with me, then back to sleep he went.

I just love this couple and I was thrilled that Mr. G allowed me to deliver Mom and Dad an amazing gallery to cherish of him and all his adorable newness.

Kelly + Tyler went back to where it all began for their wedding. To the exact spot they first met while attending the University of Chicago, the 55th and Garfield bus stop. Can there ever be a more perfect spot for a first look then the exact spot a couple first met?

Kelly + Tyler’s entire day was full of meaning and giving thanks to all who came to celebrate. They both made sure to make every guest know how much they mean to them and how important it was for them to be at their wedding. But these are the kind of people Kelly + Tyler are, loving, forever grateful, friends and family are everything to them, and they are always laughing. I mean always laughing and having fun. This is completely evident in their dancing as well 😉

Kelly + tyler are a perfect match, neither take life too seriously and just have fun. By not sweating the small stuff, they enjoy every single second. I am sure this is why their wedding was so perfect and why every time you saw them they were smiling that day.

Tom and I were completely honored to have been able to capture Kelly + Tyler’s day. It was just too beautiful for words. And Kelly’s dress?!  A BLUSH ombre BHLDN dream! It was meant for her.

Time for you to see for yourself. Grab yourself a cocktail or coffee or tea and get ready for some seriously pretty eye candy!

Kelly + Tyler, We are so grateful that you chose us to photograph your wedding. We wish you nothing but a happily ever after!

So much love, Gina & Tom

Not the republican party, not the democratic party, not the independent party, just THE PARTY lol!

Vino!   That is right, a great bottle of wine, family, friends, good food, and everyone being together. Sitting around a table, reminiscing about the past, making future plans, laughing so hard it hurts,  and having a great time right in the now. Wine (and food) around our house is usually at the center of what brings everyone together. But maybe at your house it is beer, vodka, water, fresh squeezed juice, iced tea, coffee… does it mater? As long as you are surrounded by those you love, life is good, real good.

Happy Labor Day Friends!

I hope it is everything you need for some R+R and to say goodbye to summer 2016 .

I also vote for companies like Old Navy that have awesome sales this weekend! This shirt is under $10 this weekend, I also stocked up on some cute jeans! Shop the shirt here

As a Dyer, IN milestone photographer I’m so excited to watch this little man grow.  He rocked his newborn session, and he certainly didn’t disappoint at his 3 month session!  As a matter of fact he was a little sleepy when I first arrived so he slept through the first part of the session allowing me to get some very sweet shots for Mom.

After Mr A’s little power nap he was a full on charmer with lots of smiles and trying to show off his voice to me.  He’s such a sweet little guy that makes my job even more amazing.  So excited for his 6 month session!
