I could spend all day everyday swooning over gorgeous photography and wedding films — and, truth be told, somedays I do! It’s the way love and emotion is captured on film that makes my heart swell up and my eyes rim with tears, so when I was introduced to Chicago-based husband + wife duo Ann & Kam Photography & Cinema, let’s just say my afternoon was shot. Offering their couples a comfortable and totally personal photography experience, the love that Ann and Kam have for their role in a wedding day is quite apparent.
Ann and Kam spend much of their time together talking about their couples, photography and cinema, and work hard to push each other creatively, offering something truly unique to their brides + grooms. Shooting a limited number of weddings each year so they can honestly get to know their clients and their individual love stories, the photographers are able to capture each couple’s true style and personality and let that shine throughout their wedding day. It’s apparent how much love, care and emotion is put into each and every image and film, helping every couple walk away with beautiful, timeless and treasured memories for years to come.
In addition to gorgeous images, Ann & Kam Photography & Cinema offers short films which capture those wedding moments that simply cannot come through in photos alone. Available to shoot worldwide (hello, destination nuptials!), the duo brings a fresh, creative vision to capture your best day ever. Head over here for more information and to start your booking!

If you’re not the kind of person who gets along with the cold weather so well, this Chicago engagement session on Lake Michigan might just change your mind. The bright wintery whites are enticing, and Alyssa Rosenheck Photography captured them in a way that could make any summer girl trade in her bikini for a pair of snow boots (as long as they come with that sparkly canary diamond, right?).

From the photographer… I am so excited to share my fall engagement images with you of this beautiful couple in Chicago. The weather was magical and Brian + Alexandra were so excited to capture their love and their new engagement. This couple is super stylish with the soon to be bride’s Christian Louboutin Fall boots and estate engagement ring. It’s the largest yellow diamond I have seen. Her fiancé looks like he walked out of a J crew catalogue and I was so thrilled to be part of their Chicago Session and capture their love and beauty on the lake!!

When a drop-dead gorgeous Midsummer Night’s Dream theme and fabulous rustic details collide, this is what happens. Pure, unadulterated pretty, all captured by the ever-amazing Kristin La Voie and set against a mesmerizing ThunderHawk Golf Club setting. It’s basically a fairytale come to life, with a beautiful bride in braids and all sorts of lovely moments scattered throughout the pretty, pretty gallery. Join me there for sooo much more.
From Kristin La Voie Photography… Our stunning bride Tarah describes the wedding theme as Midsummer Night’s Dream with decor full of fairies and butterflies, lace, baby’s breath, and rustic outdoorsy elements. The gorgeous mismatched pink bridesmaids dresses, the elegant florals and baby’s breath in all the girls’ hair, the kissing balls lining the aisle, and the old skeleton keys on all the tables and in the escort table were so thoughtfully made and executed perfectly. I literally felt like I had stepped into a fairytale with the most beautiful and down to earth couple on their wedding day. Tarah was the most stunning bride I have ever seen, and the choice of ThunderHawk Golf club was an excellent choice for this Orange County, CA couple!
