The 101 Road Trip: Part 4 – Hug Point

After a relaxing afternoon in Portland, our road trip adventures took us to the gorgeous Cannon Beach area of Oregon and not even the crazy rain and blowing wind storm could shake us from exploring and loving every second of Hug Point! We may have left their drenched to the bone, sand in our eyes and cameras, and exhausted, but I can tell you that even in a rain storm, this stretch of the Oregon coast is not to be missed! Here are some of our snaps….

A trip up the PCH has been on my bucket list for a while now….I think this just gave me a little push in that direction!

Wedding: Marilyn & Kyle – Revolution Brewing + PUBLIC Hotel Chicago

Okay, I swear I don’t play favorites, but Marilyn and Kyle are one of those couples I wish could get remarried every single year just so I could be there to be a part of it! I’ve felt luckier than ever to be their wedding photographer ever since first meeting them and photographing their oh-so-adorable engagement photos and I knew that no matter what mother nature might throw at us for a late November wedding in Chicago that it would be epic and amazing and a ridiculous amount of fun and full of more love than I could imagine. Totally worthy of the longest run on sentence ever! See for yourself!

Those outdoor views are from The Public?! I’ve never been up there – just in the rooms! That is stunning! Also – Pollen Floral Design does it again!! Those florals are stunning!!! <3 Beautiful work, love!

The Skvarenina Family – Chicago Lifestyle Newborn Photographer

One of the biggest honors my couples can give me after their wedding (in addition to recommending me to their friends, which is always such an incredible compliment!) is asking me to photograph them again as they enter a new chapter in their life. Getting to see their love story come full circle with the birth of a little one and the beginning of their family is truly the most beautiful gift! So, when Kelli and Ryan got in touch with me to come photograph them and their new addition, sweet baby Abigail, I absolutely jumped at the chance.
