I first met Alyssa & Tom at a Target Starbucks, aka one of the happiest places on Earth. We bonded over our equally, highly unhealthy addiction of Pumpkin Spiced Lattes and talked about their downtown Naperville wedding at Naper Settlement. Alyssa & Tom told me the story of how they first met, fell in love and put all odds aside as they fought for their relationship that wasn’t so easily handed to them. Tom told me at coffee that they “did it on purpose this time” and put every ounce of commitment, dedication and intention into their love story.
Alyssa & Tom had a quaint. God-filled ceremony followed by some jaw-dropping portraits around downtown Naperville. Directly following the ceremony, I followed the couple outside and to my amaze, say a super fancy (I do not speak car..) blue Mustang waiting for us. It’s part of Tom’s family tradition to take photos with this blue honey directly after couples get married. And to be honest, it left me a little tiffed about my family traditions of sending Bed, Bath & Beyond gift cards to the happy couple. I mean, Mustang portraits…how cool is that?!
Aside from awesome family traditions, Tom and Alyssa also brought their A-Game when it came to striking a pose. Never in my life has a groom read my mind more when it came to nuzzling his wife and turning toward the camera. Alyssa & Tom, I love you both so, so much! You are both so beautiful inside and out. BEAR HUGS!!!

Alyssa’s Sweet Words
“She exceeded my needs and wants, went the extra mile, and gave my special day a sprinkle more of laughter, joy, and love. My husband and I had a blast taking pictures because Amy was not only professional, but fun, silly, and made us comfortable! We will definitely be using her for other events in the future.”
