Kristen and Ruben’s Spring Engagement Session was one of my first ones outside for the year! I feel like it really kicked off the season for me being a Crystal Lake Wedding Photographer! We had a GORGEOUS day of almost 80 degrees and plenty of sunshine! I first met Kristen and Ruben in January at a bridal fair, and I was lucky enough to be chosen to photograph their wedding this Fall at Pinecrest Golf Club in Huntley! I was excited for Chloe, their dog to come with to the session! She really was sweet! I’ve learned that Kristen and Ruben first met on Halloween in 2010! She was dressed as Aphrodite and he was dressed as a Man with a poncho, sombrero, and riding a donkey! Now, 6 years later, almost, they will be married! How cool! Kristen and Ruben enjoy being home and watching cooking shows together and root for Da Bears! I can’t wait for 10-1-16!!!! XOXO...

I always love a good Cake Smash Photo Session, right in my Crystal Lake studio!!  I have 3 kiddos, 11,9 and 5- so I love to see these little ones and get my baby fix!   These one year olds that come to see me, most of the time have never tasted sweets before! Give them a cake with some buttercream and lots of frosting, and you are sure to get some silly faces! I first met Madilyn when she was in her Mommy’s tummy, and took her newborn photos as well. I was so excited to be ask to take Madilyn’s one year cake smash photos as well! Thanks for coming to see me Madilyn! I hope you enjoyed your party! XOXO...

Jackie and Matt were my first Villa Olivia Wedding and the my first wedding of 2016!  I had never been to Villa Olivia before! I must say, it’s quite a nice venue! I would definitely enjoy photographing a future wedding here! Jackie and Matt first contacted me several months ago! I was super excited I was available for their date! We lucked out and had a gorgeous day for their “engagement” photos. You can see their engagement photos here, http://studiopopinc.com/2016/03/18/crystal-lake-illinois-wedding-photographer/ Jackie and Matt were actually married last year, so this was their Vow Renewal and Party! Jackie and Matt each have 2 children of their own that they brought into this marriage. I must say, I had tears in my eyes during the entire ceremony. The way this family interacted with eachother was amazing! These siblings showed such a deep love for one another. Jackie and Matt themselves never seemed to stop smiling and lauging! I love that! Their wedding was so fun! They had Dj Bobby Styles https://www.facebook.com/DJ-Bobby-Styles-178272492217209/ and Dj Bobby D https://www.facebook.com/bobbyd/?fref=ts! It was a non stop dance party! I wish you many years of happiness! XO...

Newborn Lifestyle Photography is one of my favorite sessions!  It’s an honor yet scary to be asked to photograph another photographers family! Kathleen is an amazing wedding photographer with http://kathleenbuhrmannphotography.com/! We first met several years ago when we were both on our way home from weddings and she took note of my website, (listed on my van) and emailed me! Ever since we shoot with each other and I am proud to call her my friend. Kathleen and Michael welcomed Madison June a few weeks before I was blessed to meet her. She already has 2 big brothers watching over her, Clyde and Moose. Lifestyle Newborn sessions are one of my favorite sessions to do! So relaxed and in the comfort of your own home! I can’t wait to see this sweet little family blossom!...
