Looking Back & Giving Thanks ~ 2013 Couples ~ Chicago + Destination Wedding Photographers

I’m probably driving James crazy lately because every 5 minutes I say, “Can you believe our wedding season is over?! Doesn’t it feel like we were just flying to Maryland for Erin and Bret’s wedding?! Where did the year go?!”

I really just cannot believe that 2013 is coming to a close. What. A. Year.

I plan to do a round-up of my favorite moments/photos from weddings/engagements/other sessions, as well as a personal round-up of what this year looked like for us (like I did in 2011 and 2012), but for now I just wanted to say THANK YOU to all the amazing couples who let us be a part of one of the biggest moments in their lives… the moment they promised their forevers to each other.

We were so blessed to get to document 31 couples’ weddings this year and it was incredibly humbling. James and I joke that each wedding is like couples’ therapy for us. We learn something from each couple… from their vows, from the sermons the officiants give, from their readings, and from the speeches given by their loved ones. We find ourselves nodding and smiling at the other from across the room. Sometimes the messages we hear are SO TIMELY for what we are going through…. the perfect reminder to be thankful every day that we have each other, that we do this side by side, and that we are chasing our dreams together.

So thank you, thank you, thank you to each of the couples below. Because you chose us to be a part of your big day we are able to continue to make this dream a reality, and for that we can never thank you enough. Sending you all so much love and only the best always. xoxo!!



We hope to see you at our annual client party in a couple months so we can all catch up!!! (Check your emails after the New Year!)
