This intimate Fall wedding is sure to give you all the feels!

Joana and Brett were so much fun to be with on their wedding day. They are truly a perfectly matched couple that love and laugh together like no other. The way they look at each other and the way their personalities play off of each other is something every couple should strive for.

A little rain didn’t ruin their perfect day either! They were supposed to have an outdoor ceremony and we realized the night before Mother Nature had other ideas, so Brett literally whipped up their alter to get married under that night. Ladies take note and find yourself a man that will go to these lengths for you!

Joana went with my suggestion with some clear umbrellas and we had so much fun using them for outdoor portraits! I love when couples and their bridal party really get into their photos. It makes the day that much more special and allows me to get really creative with them.

Joana was a gorgeous glowing bride and I was so excited when we found a willow tree with bursts of Fall colors coming through still. We took a moment to have a little maternity session and I was beyond thrilled with how they turned out.

So much love for you Joana and Brett, baby girl’s newborn session coming up next!

I was so honored to be there to capture images of the newest addition to our Matteson Fire Department Family. Chase is just so completely perfect and he has a whole extended family at the department that is very excited to watch him as he grows up.

How perfect is he in Dad’s helmet??!! He was snug as a bug in there and made Mom and Dad so proud. I always love being able to take this picture for our fire family, it is definitely a tradition over here at GCP.

I can’t wait to see this guy again for his 3 month session!

Mr. Henry never disappoints when it comes to his sessions. His baby blues, perfect amount of chunk and infectious smile make my job of capturing his milestones a breeze.

Mom’s love of Disney and his ability to fit into a box went hand in hand for his Toy Story themed one year session and the old train car in Plainfield brought it all together.

And I think it goes without saying that the cake smash was a huge success!

Happy Birthday Henry!

Miss R definitely lived up to her Mommy’s dreams of being a picture perfect baby. I couldn’t get over all that hair and of course those perfect chunky cheeks!

She even gave us a little treat by waking up for a little bit in the middle of her session and those expressions are some of my favorites. While sleepy baby’s are needed for those perfect poses, I love interacting with awake baby’s just as much and capturing them just being themselves. Luckily, she did wear herself out enough so that we could put her on Mommy’s saddle which was her number one request.
