Valerie & Donte's Wedding | Prarie Production Chicago

Gown: Laurel Bridal
Hair: Marianne Strokirk
Makeup: Waldorf Spa
Shoes: Gucci
Invitations: Simply Designed
Flowers: Stemline Creative

Donte knew after his first official date with Valerie at the Irish pub, Dublins downtown Chicago, but Valerie wanted to make sure he was the real deal. A few months later, he unexpectedly arrived an hour early to a gallery opening where one of her photos was being displayed, and spent the whole evening getting to know her friends and supporting her passion for art, she knew this was a man she could spend the rest of her life with. And six months into their relationship, they went ring shopping! They were engaged 11 months before they wed.

Valerie was excited to use her creative background to plan their wedding right down to the smallest of details. She did an amazing job! We, of course, love that they both have an appreciation for photography! Their super sweet and chic wedding was at Praire Production in the West Loop of Chicago which is a commercial photography space with a modern vibe. The large windows bring is some fantastic light!

The day began with Valerie and her girls getting ready at Waldorf Astoria and Donte and his boys getting ready at Sofitel. Their first look was just beautiful… one of my favorites. They headed to the classic wing of The Art Institue of Chicago for a sweet photo walk. And the bridal party portraits were all taken at Olive Park.

Valerie and Donte jetted off to Paris, France on their honeymoon! What a dream!!!! Bob and I love you both and wish you a lifetime of happiness!!!

xx oo,

~ Dawn

Tracy & Chris | Engagement Session | Chicago



A photographer's dream to photograph a beautiful couple in a beautiful kitchen, right?!!! And what a fun engagement session this was with Tracy and Chris! Truly, so genuine and in love, they were up for anything! They started in the kitchen, where Chris made an Italian pasta for lunch, and Tracy assisted along the way. They even slurped spaghetti until their lips met, just too cute! They watched the movie Rocky in their theater while snacking on popcorn and Twizzlers. They even played pool in the billiards room. I really love their playful side, they goof around with each other and love on each other, it's so nice to see.

Bob and I are really blessed to have amazing clients around the world. These two are so kind, so funny, and just so real, and so very appreciative. Their wedding was the first wedding we photographed in 2014 and I just can't wait to share the photos because their wedding was …. s.p.e.c.t.a.c.u.l.a.r….!

Thank you Vince Hart from Kehoe Designs for sharing us with this amazing family. I can't wait to share your work from their wedding with you!

Much love!

~ Dawn and Bob
