Glendale Lakes Golf Club Wedding Photos| Chicago, IL | Staci & Scott

Staci and Scott are MARRIED!

Staci and Scott met through a synchronized swimming group at Huntington University in Indiana. Soon after, they fell in love and Scott proposed to her by taking her to her favorite restaurant (Olive Garden!) for dinner and back to the decorated University auditorium to pop the question!

Their wedding day began with Staci getting ready at her beautiful family home. We then traveled to Faith Christian Reformed Church for their ceremony, followed by photos and a gorgeous rustic themed reception at the Glendale Lakes Golf Club. The floral designs by Signature Creations and Prestige Floral Studio were absolutely breathtaking and Sounds Abound Entertainment kept the celebrations going all night! Staci and Scott’s whole day was filled with friends, family, smiles, and so much joy!

I have been so looking forward to sharing this wedding with you all – I’ve known Staci my whole life and it was such an incredible honor to get to know her and Scott better as a couple through their planning process, engagement session and to be a part of their wedding day. The love that Staci and Scott have for each other is obvious and they are just as sweet as can be! Congratulations to the happy couple!

LOVED working with these gorgeous ladies!!

Lillian and Felicity had the most beautiful smiles and knew just what to do for the camera – natural little models!! And those big blue eyes!! GAH!!

*insert all the heart emojis here*

One of my favorite parts about being a photographer is meeting new families –  and how cool is it to work with different generations!! It’s such an honor to see the love shared between a family first hand and share that love and personality through images for those families to treasure forever. Its my favorite ❤

Little Silas is 6 months!

I loved hanging out at the beach with this sweet family to document Silas at 6 months! Silas was so full of giggles and silly faces during their session – I couldn’t help but smile while going through their images! And have you seen his eyes?! GORGEOUS!!

This family was so much fun to work with!!

It was such a blessing to have both sets of grandparents in town from India to celebrate the twins FIRST BIRTHDAY! We played in the sand, took a snuggle break, watched the waves, and captured some beautiful memories of this beautiful family all together!

Happy 1st Birthday, Radha and Dhruv!

I have been WAY behind on blogging and have all of these sweet little family sessions that I CANNOT wait to share with you all! Stay tuned for lots more!

I had so much fun working with this adorable little family this past Fall and just had to post their beautiful faces! Throughout their entire session, the boys provided us with lots of entertainment – striking their best model poses, superhero impressions, jokes and silly noises kept us all giggling the whole day! Enjoy the photos 🙂
