Elizabeth Nord Photography » Everyone has a story. Let me tell yours.

The start of these friendships started over a glass of wine as I met Elizabeth (Liz) Greve for the first time at Eataly. I had just moved to Chicago in the fall of 2014 and didn’t know a soul, so the thought of getting together with other photographers in the industry was incredibly exciting to me! […]

From the fresh water lakes to the snow covered mountains, Whistler was absolutely beautiful. Vincent, my life-long friend Caroline, and her husband, met in Seattle this past January to make the drive to Whistler, Canada. The drive itself was simply stunning and we really couldn’t have asked for much better weather while we were there. The […]

To my love, I cannot believe it’s already been 7 years of married life with you and 11 years since the first time I saw you walk across my high school cafeteria. I loved you then and even though I didn’t think it could be possible, I love you even more today. You’ve taught me […]

Friday was the main event and we were surrounded by some of my parents most treasured friends and their families.  The next morning, all of the girls on my mom’s side of the family + plus my sweet […]

Oh my goodness you guys, if I had to pick one place to just sit and drink wine for the rest of my life it would definitely be in Blenheim, New Zealand. Blenheim is known for its amazingly gorgeous days (it averages the most sunny days out of any New Zealand city! WHAT?!) and the […]

Incredible photos Liz. I am so glad you guys got a chance to go here.

  Last week we had to fly down to Florida so we decided to bring our maltichon pup, Charlie, with us.  He hasn’t flown since he was about 10 weeks old, so I was really nervous to bring him on the plane.  He’s now 5 years old, quite spoiled if I might add, and has a […]

First, let me start off with a little back story: I took voice lessons as a kid and I continued my lessons all throughout high school and some of college as I majored in Musical Education for my first 2 years. I loved to sing. Well, I shouldn’t say LOVED …I still do. I LOVE […]

It was a warm summer day in the middle of June.  My friend, Haley, and I were sitting in our high school cafeteria waiting on the Drivers Ed class to begin.  I looked up from my notebook (or maybe I was talking to Haley at the time? Gosh it’s been so long I barely remember every […]

It’s that time of year when we look back on the past 12 months, reflect on our mistakes and our accomplishments, and count our blessings for what has been brought our way and for the people that have been put into our lives.  I absolutely love to create goals for myself and then look back […]

Love this!!! It’s so great to see things checked off from 2015!! Praying blessings to be poured on your and your family in 2016!

As 2015 comes to an end, I love going back through all of the images from the sessions and weddings that I’ve had the opportunity to photograph.  From nearly every wedding day, I have a special section of behind the scenes images of me that I save (thanks to my sweet second shooters) that up […]

Today marks one year that I’ve called Chicago my home. When I say it out loud I immediately think “wow! I can’t believe it’s been that long already!” but then again, I think “wow! It’s only been a year?!”  Today was the day that I hadn’t even moved into our home yet, but I already […]

Thanks girl!!

I have tried to describe in words what it means to be a photographer and why I chose to be one.  I simply can’t put it into words. Only photographs. And this only seems appropriate, I think. Sometimes photographs can speak louder than words. Please take a minute to really look at these photographs. Look at […]

Love your post Happy Anniversary.

Kathy Hamilton

Happy 6th Anniversary to you 2. Wishing you many, many more years of making memories to be cherished forever.

I am a goal setter, a list and schedule maker, and I write down EVERYTHING.  Yeah…I’m that kind of person.  Sometimes I get so many thoughts and ideas in my head that I can’t lay down to sleep at night.  Often times, I find myself grabbing a pen and paper (or maybe even my iPhone) to […]

And you will Liz! 🙂 Love you! And I just might have some good connections for you about the Napa Valley wedding some time… I do have friends there ya know. 😉

Let’s see if I can get through this one without crying….  Nope. Here come the water works. I’m not exactly sure what prompted me to write such a personal (and kind of dark, sorry guys) post today.  I have sat here thinking and thinking and I’ve come up with two things.  1. I just had […]

Thanks

In order to not be overwhelmed by my calendar, I tend to take one day at a time and just focus on the present, not be anxious about the future.  However, I looked at my calendar today and thought “Oh my goodness. I can’t believe it!  My wedding season begins next weekend!” It JUST hit […]
