Please stop and see us on Thursday, July 17th from 5-8pm at our studio: 2868 N Lincoln Ave. Chicago, IL 60657. It would be pretty cool if you did:)

Over the past few weeks Matt has been working closely with our friend, Tiffany Wong, on directing and filming a promotional video for the launch of her Kickstarter project. Her goal is to raise money for the recording of her first EP. The launch is “officially” official today and we are so excited to share her singer/songwriter story with you all and hope that you’ll consider joining her in this journey.

Tiffany came into our lives last Summer (thanks to Jaclyn : ) and she has been a close part of our family and our hearts ever since, caring for and nannying our son, Rhodes, a few days a week while I (Stevi) work in the office. We entrust the most important person in our lives into her care so obviously we think she is pretty amazing! Not only is the love, adoration and sensitivity that she shows Rhodes beyond what we could have ever imagined in a caretaker for him but she has come alongside us to support and love us as a family and her friendship is invaluable to us. And, if you are one of our wedding clients this year you may have already met Tiffany as we are excited to have her as part of our averyhouse team, assisting us on our weddings too!

After watching her video you can head over to her Kickstarter page HERE which will run until August 6th, 2014 to find out how you can support her in this journey!

It’s not all too often that we get to photograph a couple that has known each other since childhood. After spending an entire day with both Kate and Kevin’s families we can see where this amazing couple gets their warm, kind, inviting, and adventurous spirits from! We laughed, we cried, we (almost) cut a cake with Kevin’s officer sword. Just kidding! But we really did enjoy all of the special touches that these two incorporated into their wedding day to remember all of the amazing people who were unable to share in the joy of their wedding. We think you can actually feel the big love of this big family considering how it flowed on this very special day!
