I’ll be traveling to Georgia this summer, so if you are interested in a session send me an email to: anna (at) cityviewphoto (dot) com. I will be there beginning July 17th and staying at least a week, both on the coast and in NE Georgia.

Looking forward to seeing y’all!


I had a lot of fun doing engagement photos for Taylor & Kyle, so I was thrilled when Taylor asked me to design their save-the-date postcards using one of the images from their session. And now the cat is out of the bag – I do custom designs upon request! Let me know if your interested in hearing more about my graphic design services… including logos, save-the-dates and other cards, etc…

This particular design is a 5.5×4 postcard so it’s easier and cheaper to mail, and is more environmentally friendly (no envelope!).



How could I not enjoy traipsing around downtown Chicago with a couple in love? Marci and Chris were awesome to photograph and they had so much fun together – the true sign of lasting love, in my opinion! They had no problem pretending I wasn’t there with a camera in their faces, which made it easy to capture some lovely moments. Enjoy (:

Wow. The only description I can think of for July is insanely busy [but FUN]. On top of photography, I am taking two classes that are fun and creative and challenging [and veryvery time consuming]. The weekend of July 4th seems like ages ago. That Friday I photographed the wedding of a fun and beautiful couple at the fun and beautiful Pleasant Home in Oak Park. Here a are just a few detail shots from before the ceremony. More to come, as usual. Weddings always get multiple posts!

Seriously. It was lovely. (:


I’m uploading the gallery from this beautiful wedding, and just had to post another little preview of some bride & groom images while I wait.

J and I just got home this morning from vacation (Mt. Rushmore!!) and I have a LOT of catching up to do. If you are waiting for a gallery, they will all be up this week.

A few pics from last weekend’s wonderful wedding. Beautiful ceremony, adorable couple, huge party… all the makings of a fabulous day! And I was honored to capture some of it (: Here’s a tiny pre-ceremony preview.
