Workshopping ~ Mignonette Bridal ~ Chicago Wedding Photographer

Oh my goodness – life is getting so busy that I almost feel like I can’t keep up! In the last two weeks – besides all the regular shoots & business maintenance I do – I’ve been running around meeting up with vendors to iron out all the details for the styled shoot portion of my advanced workshop – and it’s been a little crazy! (Good crazy… don’t worry! :))

I cannot believe the workshops will be here in just over 2 weeks! I’m trying to keep cool about it, while internally (if I’m being honest) I’m freaking out a bit! Ha! 🙂

Anyway – I spent last night with Kpoene at her beautiful Mignonette Bridal shop on Belmont in Chicago. We met up with Irene and Michael, who will be acting as the bride and groom for my workshop, while they were fitted for their wedding outfits. And let me tell you – these two are going to look stunning!

I snapped a few photos of Irene and Michael trying on the different options and couldn’t help but take a few pics of the store while I was at it…. so I thought I’d share!

I seriously can’t wait to see how these two look when they’re all put together!! Kpoene does such amazing work – I can’t wait to show you guys the real deal when they’re all done up! But for now – these sneak peeks of our fitting session will have to do! 😉 Enjoy!



Isn’t her shop beautiful?! You guys – I’m seriously SO excited about the vendors I’m working with for my workshops that I want to scream their names for all of you to hear!!! 🙂 So if you’re in Chicago and you’re still looking for a wedding dress… you definitely need to go chat with Kpoene at Mignonette Bridal!!
