"Oriana is a joy to be around and easily brings out the best in people. 
She quickly connected with our family, and the kids were happy to do as she requested. 
I wish every photographer I worked with could be as 
joyful, helpful, thorough and thoughtful as Oriana." – Kathy Pine

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
When I'm not certain if I'm on the right path, I remember this, and these opportunities to be of service and to create joy. ✨

Happy Valentine's Day, my friends! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I know this day is designed for romantic love, but here in this corner we do what we want! ☺️ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I say let's celebrate Romantic Love, and Platonic Love, and Self Love, too!  LOVE baby LOVE!  That's what it's all about! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
This holiday is not perfect, I'm not perfect, and yet I do think you are perfect just as you are. 
Maybe that is a little bit of what the power of love does. . . 💕🌺Happy Valentine's Day, my friends! .

Sweet Nosara, Costa Rica.  Flashback to this sweet wedding ceremony on the beach.
✨
✨
One of my favorite things about the people I work with is, in addition to being kind and generally awesome, is they are intentional in what they do. These two created a ceremony and party that was traditional and individual at the same time, with a focus on people. .

Hello! I'd like to share 4️⃣ fun things about me you may not know - all with the theme of PLAY!
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
▶️🏰This week I went to Disneyland for the 2nd time ever. In fact, this photo may be from the beginning of the Spinning Teacup ride. 😁
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
▶️👶Most people don't know, but I love to babysit.  Today I spent the day with two fabulous kids that I care for regularly, age almost-3 and age 7.  Such fun ages for learning and PLAY!
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
▶️🎹Need someone to sightread and play classical music? I studied piano as a kid and while I do not practice, the sightreading is still there - apparently it's like riding a bicycle!
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
▶️🏆⚽️I played soccer in middle school (anyone else remember AYSO and Mayor's Cup?). Flash forward years later, the most memorable sports match I ever attended was a fútbol game in Buenos Aires, Argentina 🇦🇷at the La Bombonera stadium! That was exciting!
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
So here's a cheers to you! And a salute to play! To recognizing the beauty of when we can give ourselves times of child-like wonder and delight ✨

Hummingbirds are amazing! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I wanted to share this picture with you today. It's one of several from a series I took - I spent hours over a few days, near sunset time, waiting with a tripod for the beautiful birds that came by this plant. This image wasn't the "star" of the series but I'm seeing it fresh today.  I love the hummingbird's wings and color.

Does the earth laugh in flowers? An opening of color, peal of laughter, brightening this moment. Is the wind telling me a story, a whisper in my ear, "Look closer at the flower here."

I admit, it can feel a little awkward to introduce myself when I'm not sure what to say - but there are some new folks here and I want to say HELLO and WELCOME! 👋
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
- I love working with kind and passionate people. Confession?
 My camera is a just a tool. Yup. The real essence of what I do is in the belief and artistic expression that you are to be celebrated! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
- If I could pick ANY superpower? Teleportation, baby! Or the fountain of youth, now that I think about it. 😂
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ - My actual superpower? I'm not sure! People often tell me they feel extra at ease with me, or that I feel like an old friend. 
Not sure if that counts as a superpower.... but I'll take it. 😊 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
- I love travel so very much. I've been lucky to travel a lot always, but this past year particularly stands out! 
I've barely been home in either Chicago or Costa Rica. I've been exploring, slow traveling, and honing in on what makes a home.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
🔭If I look ahead, where do I want to grow roots? 🌳⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Gulp, getting ahead of myself here! And to think, I didn't know what to say. :) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
SO, I've got 2 questions for you. Will you pick one and tell me.... ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
-What is one of your superpowers?⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀
-What is something you look for in a place you call home? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
-Bonus question, is the fountain of youth a terrible or wonderful idea? 😁

Thanks for being here. ✨

If you could go anywhere in the world, AND have a portrait session there, where would ya go?
Um, or perhaps the better question is: where would you go FIRST? 😁
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
If you're like me, the list of places you will travel to is long!
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
My answer? I'd love to go on another scuba diving trip and do a portrait showing my new love of scuba diving!
🐠🐟🌊
.
In the meantime, here is one more image from this dreamy portrait session on Baker Beach, San Francisco from last month.

If you could win a day out with a best friend who would that be?
💫Today I want to give a shout out to our chosen families, and in particular to powerful friendships.
💫A friend who sees you as you are, who celebrates with you, and the world wouldn't be the same without them! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I am SO excited to launch a new service starting April 1st that is all to 🎉honor and celebrate powerful friendships!
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The non-romantic connections that may get overlooked in "popular culture," or even in events that are photographed more regularly such as family milestones and weddings. I love these things, and I ALSO very STRONGLY love my best friends.
➡️This disconnect between what I see being celebrated in photography and what ELSE I want to celebrate led to creating this new service. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Join the email list (link in bio) to learn more, and tag a friend that lights you up and brighten their day!

I've brought chocolate + 🥂 to photo shoots before.
But I have a new idea for a happy + relaxing treat: Bring (or borrow) a puppy dog!! 😃😂
Seriously, when this pooch unexpectedly ran up and made friends with Clinton + Izzy, it was the best!

Oh heeeey, I'm flying to Los Angeles today!
.
One of the perks of my job is meeting amazing people...like YOU. For new friends, allow me to say hello. :)
.
I’m a wedding + portrait photographer who loves working with kind, passionate people and celebrating what (and who) we love!
.
I believe you are beautiful, and finding true expression of yourself is an ongoing adventure and gift.
✨
My current guilty-not-guilty pleasure is "Black Mirror" on Netflix.📺 (I avoided it previously as it can be pretty intense to watch, but I'm feeling it now!)
Oh, and also poke bowls! They are so trendy but lately I seem to conveniently get hungry whenever I pass a cute poke bowl spot. 😂 Something I love? Nature, hikes, and the ocean always make me feel whole.
.
I started my photography career nearly seven years ago, as photographer for a luxury venue in Costa Rica🌴 and I feel incredibly lucky to do what I love. Enough about me.... I’d love to learn more about you! 
Will you say hi in the comments below? Maybe tell me one of your current guilty-not-guilty pleasures, or something that makes you happy! ☺️

In case you needed a little reminder.
✨
No matter what, you can deeply and completely accept yourself. I want to share a mantra I picked up this week from @denisedt
✨
You say to yourself "Even though I _____(insert what's bumming you out____), I deeply and completely love and accept myself." It's good stuff! And so are you!

This post is for people who are engaged 'n wedding planning!
✨
There are a zillion photographers. When you're narrowing it down, it can help to start with a values-approach.
.
BEFORE you even get into website-stalking, you can start by listing some things you LOVE (in life!).
.
Does your photographer share any of your passions or speak your love language? 
What three things do you believe are most important about your wedding? 
How do you want to FEEL on your wedding day?
.
Taking a moment to journal through these bigger picture things will give you insight into what you are looking for as you start to look at all the pretty.
.
I personally want artistic photography, but not at the expense of being uncomfortable.  I want to feel beautiful and loved. I want photographs of everyone I care about, unguarded and being themselves, like old friends.  I want some images that are vibrant and gorgeous. I want to avoid forced smiles that I can sniff out a mile away. I want to feel like myself, and I want to hug and dance and party. 😊
.
That's what comes to mind for me, if dreaming about my wedding photography.
.
Most importantly, I believe it's important to feel comfortable with your photographer. It can make a 🌎of difference. Your photographer is going to be around you almost as much as the person you are marrying! 
And like a date, sometimes you just click!✨
.
If any of this rings true with you, we may be a good match! I photograph weddings in the greater Chicago-area and in Guanacaste, Costa Rica.  I travel often (thank you credit card rewards and airline miles!!). Message me about your wedding, tell me something you love, and let's see if we click! 🎉

Ok, friends, it's 1️⃣ day into the new year I want to know: what's your take on New Year's resolutions? Are you 😄gung-ho, or 😝bah-humbug? :) Some New Year’s resolutions are so hard to keep! ➡️Instead of a resolution, I'm setting a focus word.
✨
Last year, my word was WILD INTUITION.
This year, for 2018➡️... my word is ACTION.
✨
I've got a gremlin that says, "What if its not right or ready yet?" But now I'm pushing through that, and my word is 🗣ACTION.
...Gulp, now that that's out there, I'm feeling more accountable and a little vulnerable! 
So throw a gal a bone and tell me, are you doing a New Year's resolution (or non-resolution) this year?

Ok, friends, it's 1️⃣ day into the new year I want to know: what's your take on New Year's resolutions? Are you 😄gung-ho, or 😝bah-humbug? :) Some New Year’s resolutions are so hard to keep! ➡️Instead of a resolution, I'm setting a focus word. ✨ Last year, my word was WILD INTUITION. This year, for 2018➡️... my word is ACTION. ✨ I've got a gremlin that says, "What if its not right or ready yet?" But now I'm pushing through that, and my word is 🗣ACTION. ...Gulp, now that that's out there, I'm feeling more accountable and a little vulnerable! So throw a gal a bone and tell me, are you doing a New Year's resolution (or non-resolution) this year? . . . . #chicagoweddingphotographer  #chicagoweddingphotography  #costaricaweddingphotographer  #costaricaweddingphotography  #nosaracostarica  #chicagoillinois  #twohomesoneheart  #peoplewhotravel  #liveauthentic  #loveauthentic  #loveislove  #adventurealways  #liveexquisite  #chicagoengagementphotographer  #chicagoengagementphotography  #personal  #2018goals  #2018word  #2018wordoftheyear
