Bianca & Joe | Engagement Session



Meet Bianca and Joe......... a super hip and fashion-savvy couple who are beautiful inside and out...! Bob had a blast photographing their engagement session at the Schaumburg Regional Airport. They even rented a beautiful yellow Lamborghini. How cool is that? I just LOVE them!!!

We met Bianca and Joe through Christine Stone at Tying The Knot. Christine and her partner, Brooke Righeimer are located in Hinsdale, IL and event plan weddings around the country! We are excited to photograph our first wedding with her. She's amazing and we adore her!!! Her husband, Mike, is a musician and is teaching our kids how to play the guitar. So fun....!!! I love it!

Bianca and Joe, I can't wait for your wedding at the beautiful Elysian Hotel in Chicago. It's a gorgeous venue and you're going to have a magical day!!! Make sure to indulge in their spa.... it's by far, one of my favorites in Chicago!

Enjoy!!!!

Leah & Jon Say "I Do" | New Albany Country Club | Ohio



They both attended college in different states and casually met through mutual friends. A few years later, they both move to NYC and coincidentally moved into the same apartment in the Chelsea neighborhood.................. on the same floor! How's that for fate? Although they started off as friends, their relationship soon blossomed into something more. Within months, they began dating.

Six years later, Jon surprised Leah and proposed to her in Central Park on a romantic and wintery night followed a stroll through the park in a decorated horse drawn carriage. The rest of the weekend was shared with family and friends. We were in Manhattan last October and Bob photographed their engagement session, it was perfect timing, and even the rain made for some fun images!

A huge thank you to Jennifer Anderson for introducing us to Leah and Jon. Jennifer is amazing and an incredible event planner. We are so grateful she trusts us with her clients. That's a huge compliment and we take that very seriously. She did an amazing job creating a dream wedding for Leah and Jon and we were honored to be part of their day! Their wedding and reception was at the exquisite New Albany Country Club in Ohio. They spent a year and a half planning every single gorgeous detail. There wasn't anything missing! Bob had the help of our talented friends, Jen Hester and Angie Garbot. Together the three of them rocked this wedding capturing every single detail. I love it!!! There images are mixed throughout and wow.... I love them all...!

Leah and Jon, you both rock my world. I love the way you look at each other. Leah, you are so elegant and you make me smile just looking at you in your gown! You both have such a beautiful family. Thank you for allowing us to be along during the adventure of your lifetime!!! You are the best! And we adore you both and wish you a lifetime of fun rainy days and happiness always!!!!

Loads of love...!

Leah & Jon | Engagement Session



So, I'm a little late..... again! I'm just about ready to post the most beautiful wedding of Leah and Jon and realized I haven't posted their engagement session from last fall in beautiful Central Park, New York City! I really am in awe them. They are so much fun, and up for anything... as you can see from their rainy day photos! We happened to be in NY last October and it worked out perfectly because they live there. Bob and our cute intern at the time, Jordana, worked their magic and made lemons out of lemonade with all the rain.

Central Park is where Jon proposed to Leah so these are really special and I'm excited to share them with you!

Better late than never, I always say!

With love......

Dawn & Bob

Taylor & Scott | Wedding | Sneak Peek



A fairytale wedding with the princess and the glass slipper..... well, almost! Taylor lights up the room when she smiles. There isn't a soul in the world that could not fall in love with her. She's a dream! And Scott is in love! I'll never forget when Bob and I were shooting their engagement session and I was telling Scott how incredibly beautiful Taylor was and his response was "I could look at her all day long!" They are a match made in heaven! Taylor posted one of her engagement photos on Facebook awhile back and there were a ton of her friend's comments on there, but somewhere half way down the list of ohhhhs and ahhhhs, was a comment from her dad and it simply said.... "you are nicer than you are beautiful." And that is the God's honest truth. Taylor is so incredibly beautiful, but that's not what's extraordinary about her. It's her personality... and that's what I mean when I said Taylor lights up a room when she smiles!!! Scott is definitely a scholar. He's incredibly handsome but there's so much more about him. To me, there is nothing sexier than a man who loves his woman... and there is no denying he loves his! They are surrounded by the most incredible families. When Taylor's dad had his "first look" of his baby girl in her dress, I shed tears observing his reaction and how proud he is of her. It was the most beautiful moment.... ever! She had an incredibly fun group of bridesmaids, not to mention sweet and beautiful. And Scott was surrounded by his groomsmen, who were up for anything, that stood next to him proudly. Bob and I feel so blessed to be part of their lives...!

Their wedding was at the exclusive Standard Club in Chicago. Their Event Planner, Jan Ehrenberg of Parties, Events & More, did an amazing job of orchestrating a fairytale wedding. Everything was exquisite right down to the table cloths that were especially designed after Taylor's dress by Heffernan Morgan Designs. A big thank you to our dear friend who flew in from California to shoot with Bob, Heidi Morgan. You are so amazing and we couldn't have done this without your support!!!

Here's a sneak peek from their wedding and their "day after" session. I'll post more images soon!

Enjoy!

Melissa & Ben | Engagement Session



Their story is too cute. Melissa was approached by a friend at work asking if she was available because he knew a guy she just had to meet. After hearing all the details about his friend, Ben, her reply was "Is he funny? He has to be funny?" Her friend said assured her he was and told her to watch for an email from him. Well, an email from Ben arrived asking her if they could set a time to meet so they could discuss his love for fake gold jewelry, hair gel and tanning, Melissa realized her friend had set her up with a down-to-earth and fun-loving guy!

After their 1st date at the Trump Tower Chicago - Rebar Lounge, they set another date, and another. The rest is history!

Ohhhh, I just couldn't be more excited to share the engagement session of Melissa and Ben! They started at the Chicago Cultural Center and can I just say........ what a beautiful venue!!!

Melissa & Ben, you both are incredibly beautiful and so sweet. I can't wait for your wedding!!!

Enjoy!
