.steve & katie. March 17th, 2012 Chicago wedding photographer

Steve + Katie = LOVE!  These two are perfect for each other.  Upon arrival at both locations, both bride and groom had their iphone blazing with their favorite tunes and their wedding gifts to each other were lovely framed images of their adventures together.  That is the first time that I have seen a bride and groom give almost the exact same gift to the other.
Throughout the day their gazing looks and giggles to each other told the rest of the story and these are the weddings that I LOVE.  To quote Marcus Bell, "it's not the location that makes the image, it's always the couple."  Thank you Steve and Katie for being so great together and lovely to work with!
To the surprise of Steve and Katie the Shannon Rovers Pipe Band  came to serenade them as their reception started.  It was such a fun surprise for them and a great way to continue the St. Patties spirit into the evening!  Check out the slideshow below to see their performance.
From their program:
Faith to uphold you, Love to enfold you, Laughter to light up each day ... Smiles on your faces, Goodness and Graces - For all of these blessings, we pray - Irish Blessing
Many blessings and Cheers, Em

Meet my most favorite cutest nephew, Fischer David Schmidt.  He came to visit Wisconsin for his 2 month birthday and baptism.  It was so awesome to finally meet him in person.  I can't wait to watch him grow into a little man.  Love you dude.  Thanks for being such a good model.  Be good for your mom!  

This image below cracks me up!  In the first one he is thinking, "Guys, I swear it was this big!"  And in the image below that one ... "Okay, you got me.  I love telling hunting stories!"

.christina, street FREEDOM!

  In hopes of cheering us all up from these winter blues I thoughts I would share some summer photos of my dear friend Christina.  This was the day the cement was poured and the day after the cement dried outside her house.  The short story is that the pathway allows Christina and Hogan to get to the street from the house.  Unfortunately Christina isn't able to do inclines or stairs, so this was the best solution.  What a joy it was to see her glowing with the freedom to get to the street without driving there!  Love you friend!  Em
