Sonja and Brad // Engaged!

I first met Sonja years ago, on a beach, at her brother's wedding. I have since photographed many of her family's events, including her other sister's wedding! It's been fantastic to be invited back to document some of life's biggest moments for the Carlyon family, so when Sonja and Brad asked me to photograph their wedding, I was obviously thrilled. For their engagement session, the couple wanted to incorporate three of their favorite things - their love for Italian food, their love for coffee and the love-of-their-life, their dog Hank. We started the day off at the Loring Pasta Bar and continued into the North Loop Neighborhood for some charming backdrops and a little cold press.

Congratulations to Sonja and Brad! I am SO excited to be with you and your family on the big day!
