despite the cold weather (anything below 60 degrees is cold for me), my first trip to chicago was wonderful. sarah and dan were perfect hosts and did a fantastic job showing us around their beautiful city. we took a cab to lake michigan, walked through lincoln park, took the train past wrigley field… and even managed to make a quick stop to pick up a $3 kite from walgreens. thank you sarah and dan for your kindness and for making the day so fun and enjoyable. we can’t wait to come back, hopefully when the temperature is 20 degrees warmer. mw

April 23, 2009 - 4:03 pm Marty J. - I hope you don't mind...I linked this post to my own. Love your work! I figure any small way I can get your name out there is better for everyone. We get more beauty, you (hopefully) get more business. : O )

April 15, 2009 - 12:38 pm Jenny - I'm a new reader and leaving a comment on this post because it's my favorite set of engagement photos. It's a Tim Burton movie + Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. Most engagement photos are cheesy and making me diabetic, but yours are different - whimsical, quirky, romantic and stylish. I absolutely love them.

March 31, 2009 - 3:31 pm Pauline - This is my second visit since yesterday, and I'm still in total awe ... this couple is so lucky to have chosen you as their photographer because these photos are completely iconic yet very personal to them - I love the one where she's blowing gum and he's breakdancing! I would love to hear you talk about your process and what kind of camera you use and other topics like that! If you've written something like that before, I would love to have a link. Seriously, your photography is beautiful. :)

March 30, 2009 - 8:56 am Melissa - Gorgeous! That skirt picture alone is worth the entire day's haul!

March 29, 2009 - 5:41 pm sooki - wow. you are one freaking amazing photographer! your photos tell a beautiful love story. no captions needed at all. nice work.
