Rustic May Wedding | Vintage Oaks Banquet Barn • Delphi, IN | Kayla & Steven

Kayla & Steven were wed on May 11th, 2019. The entire day was relaxed but filled with so much fun! Their venue, Vintage Oaks Banquet Barn, featured romantic string lights, separate bride and groom getting ready silos, and the cutest long haired cows! Light lavender & gold details tied together with an abundance of natural greenery and wooden elements to create the perfect rustic vibe. Kayla & Steven used her parent’s wedding glasses during toasts and Kayla’s mom even sewed a piece of her own wedding dress into Kayla’s so that “she’ll always be with her.” It’s the details like that that I love capturing at weddings!

Downtown Chicago Senior Session | Anna

Any Star Wars fans here? I’ll admit I’m one! I can’t count the number of times I’ve been Princess Leia or Padme for Halloween :P If you’ve seen the movies, doesn’t the image above totally remind you of a scene from Naboo?! The columns, the ivy, the arched windows — it’s like we’re on set!

One of my favorite things about Chicago is that every corner can transport you to a totally different country, era, or even galaxy (lol okay I’m done geeking out now). That’s why I was so excited when Anna wanted to meet me in downtown Chitown for her senior session! We spent an evening running around the windy city, finding the best backgrounds, and chasing the sun. It was so much fun! I also loved getting to know Anna during her shoot. She is as sweet as can be and has the best style. Wait until you see the hat she brought; I’m obsessed with it! More Chicago shoots pleaseeeee!
