Erin & Nick

I met Erin last year when she had purchased a Living Social voucher for a boudoir photo shoot.  She was adorable and I instantly took to her.  She was doing this as a gift for her boyfriend Nick. 

They knew each other from high school and reconnected a couple of years ago and started dating.  She said they were serious and really liked him, I said that these photos would get her a ring..... couple of months later I get an email from Erin asking if I'll photograph their wedding on 9.13.13.  She got her ring.

I met Nick when I took their engagement photos by Navy Pier.  He's a good guy, they compliment each other nicely.  I enjoy them as a couple very much.  Made me even more excited to photograph their wedding.

Erin and Nick decided on a small ceremony near a lake, it was beautiful.  Erin wore pink shoes and her bouquet was pink paper flowers.  The reception took place at Pinstripes in Oakbrook, IL.  They had bowling lanes reserved, a private bocce court, a fire pit, mad libs and cupcakes.  It was a fun and intimate time.

Thank you so much Erin and Nick for allowing me to capture the memories on your special day.  I wish you a lifetime of healthy, happiness, love and joy.

More images may be seen on my wedding site at Lori K. Sapio.

Free photoshoot for Breast Cancer Survivor

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and as part of our quest to support women’s issues and health, Revival Pinups is announcing their first annual Breast Cancer Survivors’ Boudoir Photo Shoot Contest. We have photographed many cancer survivors in the past, who naturally wish to see themselves in their best light and want to feel confident about their bodies once again. Getting excellent boudoir photographs taken is a huge self-confidence booster for any women, especially those who have been through such a difficult experience. Our photographer Lori lost her Grandmother 2 years ago to breast cancer.  Her Aunt Sandy is a 4 year survivor, her Mother had her double masectomy on 11.5.12.

Nannie and Me

Revival Pinups will be holding a contest during the month of October for cancer survivors. If you or someone you know has been affected by any kind cancer that affects women, please consider entering our contest to win a FREE Boudoir Photo Shoot Package. Entering the contest is easy, simply send us your survival story along with one or two photos of you and we will post some of the entries on our blog. The winner will receive a deluxe boudoir package, including full makeup & hair by Kate Johnson, a photo shoot with Lori, plus 10 beautiful images that will help you further realize your true beauty! Anyone who has a cancer survival story is a true winner, and so all entries will receive a discount toward a future boudoir photography session. In addition to providing our contest, Revival Pinups will also be contributing a portion of each photoshoot in October toward breast cancer research. Please join us in our support of breast cancer research by donating to this important cause.
