Sabrina + Banu | Phipps Conservatory Anniversary Session

There is something so sweet about being able to dress up all over again and reminisce about your wedding day for your anniversary, it makes my sappy romantic heart turn to mush. Sabrina and Banu were married last year in Virginia and wanted to do something special for their first anniversary and unseasonably warm weather gave us the most beautiful day to shoot outside of Phipps Conservatory and the Carnegie Museum. These two have the most light-hearted sense of humor and the sweetest of loves.

Sabrina and Banu, thanks so much for letting me take your portraits again, I hope you have so many amazing adventures together in your new home of Chicago! 



Carl & Alexis | Surprise Anniversary Session

In past posts, I have let the images speak for themselves but the back story of this session is so good, I have to tell you all about it. This is Carl and Alexis and it's their 25th wedding anniversary. Carl told me he was really excited to have a photographer because he had a really big surprise for his wife to celebrate their 25 years together. He went on to say that they don't have any wedding photographs of their day because the original photographer lost them. True story. So, Carl rented the Broderie Room at Phipps so he could recreate as much of their day as he could for Alexis. He had all of the details worked out. He played the same songs, ordered similar flowers and even bought the same Prantl's Almond cake they had on their wedding day. Not a dry eye around, I think Carl may have won at the Anniversary gift giving game for life.
