A HOME SESSION WITH THE POWELL’S

Oh my goodness, where to even start with this session?! I had so much fun getting to photograph Mallory and John at their beautiful home in Glenview! Mallory is not only a sweet friend of mine, but also the incredibly talented owner and lead planner at Chi Chic Weddings & Events here in Chicago.

Leo and Sarah chose to celebrate their beautiful wedding in downtown Philadelphia at the Ballroom at the Ben. They decided on this location so that friends and family from New Jersey, Miami, Brazil, and everything in between could join them on their special day.

Nicole and Jerry are literally the sweetest people ever and their wedding day was so beautiful. They were married at the National Shrine of St. Maximilian Kolbe at Marytown a few weeks ago.  Nicole and Jerry received special permission to be married there as they don’t usually allow weddings at the shrine. But because of […]
