Gina & Mark | Wedding

Are all people so nice or are we simply lucky to meet nicest and most friendly couples? On every wedding we get to feel like a part of the family. Gina and Mark’s wedding was no exception. We received a warm welcome and their families are just great people to be around. Hmmmm, sometimes photographing a wedding doesn’t feel like a job anymore. Gina and Mark have three great kids who are so cute that it was hard to turn our cameras away from them:-). They are what we call “camera magnets”. Gina and Mark: we had a great time and we were honored to document your big day. Congratulations!

I’m not good at writing so I hope the pictures can tell the story of this day.

The ceremony took place at The South Church – a little charming church in Mount Prospect.

Reception was held at Manzo’s Banquets.

Katie & Ryan | Engagement

Katie and Ryan have chosen the Farnsworth House in Plano for their engagement session. It was a great choice! What an interesting location for a photo shoot. We had only an hour to shoot there and we really wished we had more time to explore and try different things. Nevertheless Katie and Ryan were great to work with and we were able to realize many of the ideas we talked about before the session. It was a blast! Big thanks to all nice people working at Farnsworth House, especially to Scott who was our personal guide.

Betsy & Nick | Wedding

I met Betsy and Nick last year. They asked me to photograph their wedding day even though they knew it would be my first wedding on my own. They liked my style and trusted me enough to choose me to document such an important day in their life. We had a great time during their engagement session and I couldn’t wait to photograph them again. Since last year I signed many contracts and photographed many sessions and weddings, but I still remember how good I felt when Betsy and Nick asked me to be their wedding photographer.

Betsy and Nick, it was a beautiful day. Both, Paul and I felt so welcome. You have wonderful family and friends. Thank you for letting us to be a part of your wedding day. Congratulations!

Seeing each other for a first time that day.

We had some time for pictures before the ceremony.

Ceremony at Taltree Arboretum.

Reception: Cloister in the Woods.

Anniversary dance. Both couples, Betsy and Nick’s grandparents have been married for more than 60 years. WOW!

  • John LaVere - Superb. Each photo is a work of art.

  • Anna - Thank you John, it so nice to hear such a nice comment from a great and experienced photographer:-).

  • sarah berry - the photos are absolutely beautiful. You have a true talent! I would love for you to do my family in the near future. What is your session fee, etc?

  • Betsy - Beautiful job Anna. It’s amazing how you captured the piece of cake dropping into my dress as Nick and I fed each other. That was so funny! Great timing and lots of great shots. So excited to see the rest! :)

  • Heather - Stunning, artistic, beautiful!
