Chicago Style Shoot: DL Studio

You may remember some of our previous style shoots with Debi Lilly, like this festive affair, or this springtime celebration... Well, we were really excited to join Debi at her new party space, DL Studio! As usual, the design and carefully curated decor were incredible. We had a fantastic time collaborating with her to commemorate her new venture! Congrats, Debi!

Thanks to Toni Patisserie for the desserts, and to our fabulous model, Willow Star!

Chicago Wedding Photography: Jillian+Stephen

Jillian+Stephen's love story began in college. Fast forward a few years later, when Stephen took Jillian on a late night walk to the spot where he first told her he loved her. He got down on one knee and asked her to spend the rest of her life with him! The two were married on a beautiful September day, surrounded by all their family and friends at the Langham Hotel.

We were so excited to be there to capture their incredible wedding day and wish them the best of luck as Mr & Mrs!
