Dara and Seth were married at one of Chicago’s newest loft-style wedding venues – Sarabande. I started the morning with Dara and her bridesmaids downtown at Hyatt Centric Magnificent Mile and Justin started with Seth and the groomsmen at the same hotel. Once everyone was finished getting ready we headed downstairs for a first look around the corner. From there, we boarded a trolley for some portrait time. Our first portrait spot was outside the Wrigley building and Michigan Avenue. We then made a quick stop at the Chicago Theatre. It was busy so it was in and out with just Dara and Seth bef ..read more

Jessica and Daniel’s wedding at Tabu Restaurant in the West Loop was a great way to start winding down our 2023 wedding season. I started with Jessica along with her sisters and mother at LondonHouse Hotel downtown while Justin started with Dan and the guys at an AirBNB in Fulton Market. It’s always nice having a small group for prep in the morning. We met up at Union Station for first look and then went inside for the classic shot on the stairs along with the outdoor portico. From there, we headed to the Board of Trade area on LaSalle Street for family group photos and some more portraits ..read more

I met up with Liz and Bill at one of their local spots, Frank’s Bar, in Chicago’s Lincoln Park neighborhood. We chatted over beers and made a few photos there before walking to the Park. Our walking tour continued East through the park and out to the Lakeshore and Fullerton Beach. It was a bit windy, but I loved the photo we made of the two of them running – it was good practice for Bill who was running the Chicago Marathon this year! From there we headed downtown after an outfit change for a stop in front of Buckingham Fountain. We caught a nice sunset there and made it to the Chicago Thea ..read more

I met up with TerriAnn and Jason at one of their favorite Old Town pubs – The House of Glunz – with a lot of meaning for the two of them. In addition to catching up over drinks we also shot a handful of photos there. After an outfit change we headed north to Lincoln Park. It was a great day for a walk through the park and we actually walked all the way from Cafe Brauer to North Ave. Beach. We finished at North Ave. Beach during blue hour as the building lights lit up the skyline. Can’t wait to see you both again for your wedding next year!

Tanja and Miljan were married at St. George Serbian Orthodox in East Chicago, Indiana. I loved Daniela & Draz’s wedding last year, so I was excited for another one when Tanja & Miljan reached out about their day. I started the morning with Tanja and her sisters getting ready at her home. Justin started with Miljan at his home. Tanja and Miljan each had their own Skup (celebration) happening at their respective homes. After Tanja and Miljan were dressed and ready, Miljan’s group traveled to meet Tanja and “negotiate” for the opportunity to marry with her family members. Tanja’s family ..read more

Carolyn and Josh’s wedding was at one of Chicago’s newest venues – Chicago Winery. I started the morning at Carolyn and Josh’s beautiful Jackson Park home on Chicago’s South Side where the ladies were getting ready. It was a mostly uneventful morning until a power outage hit the neighborhood. Thankfully Josh’s Dewalt tool collection allowed the hair & makeup team to continue doing their thing and even Kristy of Lola Events steamed the dress! Justin started just down the street with Josh at one of his groomsman’s home in the same neighborhood. The couples’ home (specifically the gorgeous ..read more

Deirdre and Phil were married at St. Joseph Catholic Church in Chicago’s Lincoln Park neighborhood with a reception at Cafe Brauer.

Justin started with Phil and the guys at the same hotel as well. The ceremony was officiated by Deirdre’s friend Brendan at St. Joseph Catholic Church.

Kendyll and Chris were married at one of Chicago’s best loft wedding venues: Artifact Events in the city’s Ravenswood neighborhood. I’m a bit partial to the venue because it’s just a few blocks from my home and I’m a well-known sucker for exposed brick loft spaces! I started with Kendyll and the bridesmaids at The Ambassador Hotel downtown while Allison spent the morning with Chris and the guys. The weather started off a little questionable, but thankfully the skies cleared up just in time for our first look on the rooftop patio at the hotel. The view from there is awesome, prominently featu ..read more

Amy and Eric were married at the the Museum of Science and Industry on Chicago’s south side. They both have backgrounds in STEM so the venue choice was perfect! I started with Amy and the bridesmaids at her suite in Loews Hotel Downtown for hair & makeup. It was a very chill morning with the small wedding party. Allison started with Eric and we met up at Olive Park nearby for First Look. We were joined by the couple’s pup – Typhoon (who you might remember from their engagement session) for a few family portraits. We finished up our all of our wedding party photos and had time for some ep ..read more

Daniela and Draz were married at St. George Serbian Orthodox in Schererville, Indiana. I started the morning with Daniela and her bridesmaids getting ready at her home. Allison started with Draz at his home. Daniela and Draz each had a celebration (Skup) happening at their respective homes. After Draz and Daniela were dressed, his group traveled to meet Daniela and “negotiate” for her with her family members. It was a fun tradition – especially when Draz’s people requested a photo of the bride and they brought out a stained glass portrait from Daniela as a teenager. There was more celebratin ..read more
