Ashley & Ari's Wedding | Radisson Blu Aqua Hotel Chicago



Ashley and Ari are one of our most fun couples! They are just crazy in love and it's so obvious by the way they look at each other. One minute they can be making silly faces and then the next minute they are tearing up… it's just so . dang. adorable!

I can't begin to tell you how blessed we feel to have this family in our lives. Last year we photographed Ashley's sister, Danielle and her husband's wedding. They really are polar opposites, but the one thing they have in common is an incredible mom, Andie. I've never met a mom more involved and more in love with her kids. She is really a wonderful woman and I fell in love with her the first time I met her at Jim Dillbeck's office from Hefferman Morgan Ronsley, who designed both Ashley and Danielle's weddings. Andie is crazy in love with her dogs and that makes me crazy in love with her… well for many more reasons than that!

Ashley and Ari's wedding all took place at the Radisson Blu Aqua Hotel in Chicago. This venue is so sweet! Working with Jim Dillbeck at Heffernan Morgan Ronsley is always a treat! He is a gentle soul and just a pure gentleman.

And of course, I love that Ashley and Ari included their puppy, Rebbe, into their first look in the serenity rock garden… so cute!!! It had to be one of our most favorite first looks ever, just filled with genuine emotion! I just love that Ari sheds a tear when he gets emotional. They are so cute together. I absolutely love this wedding, the fall colors were amazing! The dance floor was wrapped in a steel gray gloss covering with their monogram in orange. Love it!

And now that they have announced there is a bun in the oven, we can't wait to do a maternity session with them… and then of course, photograph the newest addition to their family! Move over Rebbe, there's a new sheriff coming to town!

Ashley and Ari…. what can I say… Bob and I adore you both. We are so excited for what the future holds for you. And can't wait to meet baby Silver!

A huge "shout out" to our sweet friend and second shooter, Jenn Gaudreau. We love you so much! You are amazing girlie!

Much love!

Ashley & Ari's Puppy Love Engagement Session | Chicago



It's always the most amazing compliment when we are asked to photograph another wedding for a family we adore! This is Ashley and Ari… and Rebbe, their much loved puppy! Ashley is sisters with Danielle whose wedding to Jeremy was the previous year! Can you imagine 2 weddings for their parents back to back like that? Oh my!

Ashley tells us that they met on JDate, but chances are they mostly likely met as kids because they have tons of family and friends in common. She laughs because Ari picked her up for their first date in his mom's Porsche and tried to tell her it was his, just to show off. I can totally see Ari doing that! Of course, they hit it off and fell in love! When Ari proposed to Ashley, he attached a box to Rebbe's collar and had him walk into the room she was getting ready in for dinner with their family at their favorite restaurant that night. Ari got down on one knee, with Rebbe by his side, and said (something private… wink, wink ;) and proposed to Ashley. She said "it was amazing to have all three of us together"!.

We had a blast during their engagement session in Chicago! We began at their home, which is where they draw their strength and happiness. Rebbe was always present and was willing to pose at any moment. We headed out to the dog park near their home and took some gorgeous photos with the fall colors as a backdrop. Rebbe, of course, stole the show! I love how much Ash and Ari love their puppy, very much the way we love our Hunter! We ended the evening at the bend in the river to take some incredible night shots. It's the last photo we'll ever take there as the bend is no longer there in Chicago.

Here's some photos to share with you all…! Their wedding post is next!

Danielle & Jeremy | Wedding | Four Seasons Hotel Chicago



Jeremy had a plan when he left work early and headed home. Danielle had no idea what was in store that evening. When she opened the door to their apartment to find rose petals covering the floor and when she was greeted by their puppy wearing a shirt that said "Mommy, will you marry Daddy?" and Jeremy around the corner waiting to pop the question, she was so shocked and not to mention, happy, she started laughing and crying at the same time. Needless to say, her answer was YES!

We can't thank Jim Dillbeck, from Heffernan Morgan Ronsley, enough for introducing us to this incredible family. I'm in awe everyday when God brings gracious and appreciative people into our lives. I clicked with Andie, Danielle's mom, the moment I met her in Jim's office. She's the glue that holds her family together and I can totally relate to that. She loves her husband, her kids and her dog, and I knew that she was my kind of girl. She stresses over the details, and she'd give you the shirt off her back. She's incredible and I adore her. When the bride's mom texts you photos of the bride in her dress from the Vera Wang store in New York, you know she is the BEST. I love our brides, but I truly love their moms. One day, far from now and God willing, I will be in their shoes helping to plan my daughter's wedding and I'm sure I will stress over the details too.

Thank you to our fabulous friend, Jenn Guadrau for second shooting with Bob at D+J's wedding. You are incredibly talented and we are always honored to have your assistance!

We hope you enjoy the images from this gorgeous wedding!

Much love!

~ Dawn + Bob

Danielle & Jeremy | Engagement Session | Glencoe



On my way to Heffernan Morgan Ronsley to meet with Jim Dillbeck and his client, I had NO idea what I was in for. When I walked in the meeting room, it took only moments for me to fall in love with Andie, Danielle's mom. We laughed and talked for a long time and she loves her puppy as much as I love mine!!! I left our meeting thanking God for bringing such an incredibly kind and beautiful woman into my life. You can't help but fall in love with Andie instantaneously. She is the most caring, loving, involved mom and I hope to be half as close to my kids as she is with hers as mine grow up.

Danielle + Jeremy met while attending the University of Denver together. They would say their fist date was almost a complete disaster. Jeremy asked Danielle to go to Rosh Hashanah services with him and then go out to dinner afterwards at a Chinese Restaurant, one of Jeremy's favorites. As it turned out, Danielle had not been to services in a long time and not a fan of Chinese food. But it didn't matter because they spent the next 7 years learning to love each other completely. They've traveled the world and have skied almost every resort in Colorado.

They have lived in New York together since early 2008. Jeremy is an attorney specializing in commercial litigation and international arbitration and Danielle has established herself as an internet marketing specialist for Yahoo! I'm so excited to share their engagement session with you all. We began at Danielle's parent's beautiful home, where she grew up and then we hit the streets of downtown, Glencoe. I love when our couples include their dogs. Meet Sohpie, she's so stinkin' cute!

Next blog post is their wedding! Yes, they said "I Do" and it was a perfectly dreamy wedding!

Definitely one of my favorite families of the year!!!

Enjoy!!!

xoxox,

Dawn + Bob
