Awesome Chicago Cover Band

If you are looking for a live band for your wedding or general event, definitely check out the cover band the Walk-Ins! Joe and team are so incredibly nice and great to work with. You won't be disappointed.

In one swift hour, we were able to film so much great footage and compress it down to really give an audience a taste of what they can expect. Now have a listen! They'll have you singing along for sure!

Thanks for checking out The Walk-Ins' reel! If you're looking for cover band based out of the Chicagoland area, definitely check them out!

It was almost a year ago when this picture was taken. Time flies and these two beautiful ladies were married over the summer!

"She Said Yes" was a personal project and the concept was born after discussing portraits for a save the date card / engagement announcement. But these were two amazing friends -- how could we just do an ordinary portraits?

Friends and supporters of Life Made Still helped create this image. In no way is this a one person production! Working with sparklers takes patience. If you are the "sparkler master", you have to be able to write backwards! And if you are the photographer, you have to get your exposures right and direct everything to a T, because it is all about light and timing.  And if you are the subject of the photo, in this case, you need a good winter jacket and tolerance to the cold:)

Thank you to all who helped with creating this amazing photo. And congratulations to this stunning couple in red dresses. 

Tracy and Matt

Tracy and Matt

Tracy and Matt tied the knot at the Morton Arboretum on Sunday, September 25, 2016. And boy was it toasty!

Hanging out in the shade or air conditioning was key early on, as temps were in the mid eighties. Their ceremony was held just outside their reception room and luckily it was covered!

Clearly the forces of nature were on their side, as the sun and rain brought their portrait session to a beautiful end. It made for a gorgeous moment.
