Evy: portraits || chicago, il engagement & wedding photographer

Thursday, June 14, 2012



A few weeks ago when I was in Chicago my sweet Evy friend (most of you know her as Evangeline Renee) just happened to be in town visiting her family that weekend so we were able to spend some time with each other.  Our friendship began about ten years ago when we ended up on the same team at a girls conference.  She lived in Chicago and I lived in TX at the time, so after the conference we kept up by letter.  Yes, actual pen and paper, snail mail kind of correspondence.  Evy was always much better at it than I was, she probably wrote me two letters for every one I wrote her, but we kept in touch for several years that way, sporadic though it may have been.  We lost touch for a little while, but when I was 18 I moved to Chicago to work for a Christian ministry based there and one of the first nights I was there I bumped into her!  From then on she's been one of my dearest friends, we've bonded over our mutual love of photography, the color robins egg blue, and wanting to be a "career mommies" more than have any other career.

Every time we're together we try and update our bio pictures since it's rare that we get the chance to be in front of the camera.  These are just a few of my favorites that I took of her, and you can see the ones she took of me here.  








Much Love,
