Kerri & Jeremy |Chicago Engagement Photography

I have to say, I do not get to the city anywhere near often enough!  I'm only about an hour, give or take depending on who's driving and what time of year it is, from Downtown, but it's like we NEVER get down there. I was so excited when Kerri asked me to come to them for their engagement session and get them in their element. I mean, these two live smack dab, right in the middle of Chicago. Other than it being freaking freeeeezing; it was perfect!

This sweet squishy cheeked beauty was in the studio right before i left for vacation, so i didn't get her session out there right away. But she sure was a dream, she slept the whole time and I DIDN'T get peed on!!! yay me! 

The Riley's | Starline Factory {Harvard, Illinois}

August 18, 2017

A short thirty minute drive brought me into the quaint town of Harvard, IL where you'll find this hidden gem of a venue. Starline Factory is an old farm equipment factory turned art studio/event venue, and it couldn't be more unique and exquisite.  The weathered brick exterior is blanketed in climbing vines. The inside is adorned with Edison lights and rustic elegance.  

My Favorite Room. The giant empty space that exists behind the bridal suite. The gorgeous light that poured in through those south facing windows made me as giddy as a 5 year old on Christmas morning. You'll see what i'm talking about.
