Cool People Volume XIII: Hullabaloo Photo

My next featured Cool Person is Anna from Hullabaloo Photo.  Anna is by far one of the kindest and most caring people I've ever met and I feel extremely lucky that I've gotten a chance to get to know her.  Anna was another gal I met at one of the Fast Track photographer meetings and we got to catch up one-on-one a few weeks ago.  One of the first things I noticed about Anna's photos is how skilled she is at capturing the emotion of the couples and families in her photos.  Anna started her career as a nurse, which makes sense for her nurturing personality, but after a series of personal events, she decided her heart wasn't in it any longer.  Lucky for us, her heart WAS in photography!  :)  Anna takes the time to really get to know and connect with her couples, so you can be assured that she'll capture your love honestly.  Plus, I don't know anyone who hasn't felt immediately at ease with her upon first meeting.  Nothing makes for better photos than a relaxed subject.  :)

But enough jabbering--since a picture is worth a thousand words, here are a few of Hullabaloo's most recent.  Be sure to check out the website and Hullabaloo's blog for more!

Cool People Volume XII

Since, as I explained last post, I'm way behind on my posts, I can no longer legitimately call these "Cool People I met this week".   So, we're just going to leave that part out and continue with this fun series! 

Katie and Jessica, Blue Plate.  I met Katie for the first time at an industry event early this summer and thought it would be a good idea to take the opportunity to get to know Blue Plate a little better!  Katie recommended that I meet with both her and her colleague Jessica who works on many of the weddings.  Blue Plate is one of the most established caterers in all of Chicago; they all types of events and even have permanent locations at a few venues in Chicago (CSO for one).  It was really interesting to hear Katie and Jessica tell me about how each event is completely custom--there are no standard menus!  So, if you and your fiance want a Chinese-French fusion menu, the Blue Plate chefs will be hard at work to figure out the best way to create it.  :)  Their delicious food is prepared using as much local produce as possible--another great selling point for those "green" brides and grooms out there!

Before I sign off, I thought you'd like to see a couple drool-worthy photos of Blue Plate's delicious cuisine.


If you're interested in a fantastic caterer for your next wedding or event, make sure you look into Blue Plate!

Save the Date!

Um....hi blog fans...{smiles sheepishly} marks the inexcusable ONE MONTH absence from blogging.  I could give you a list of reasons why I haven't had the time, but I won't bore you with the "coulda, woulda, shouldas" and instead launch right into a post I've been excited about for a while!

Amy and Matt are getting married next May up in Lake Geneva.  When we first met, they had already taken photos using Amy's mom's wedding dress and needed someone to design their save-the-dates around these photos.  Of course, I knew the perfect person for the job!  I've talked about how awesome Suzy from Lily Red Design is on the blog before (here) and Amy and Matt agreed.

Here are a couple photos that Suzy took (Lily Red is both a photo and design studio).  Let me know what you think!

Aren't they adorable?  I can't wait to tell you more about Amy and Matt's wedding as we get closer.  Thanks, Suzy, for creating such fun save-the-dates!
