Nicole & Elliott: Trappers Turn Golf Club Wedding Photos

I traveled to Wisconsin Dells for Nicole & Elliott’s wedding at Trappers Turn Golf Club. I spent the morning with Nicole and the ladies doing hair and makeup at a salon in town while Justin photographed Elliott getting ready at Kalahari Resorts.

Ashley & Jason: Maggiano’s Chicago Wedding Photos

Ashley & Jason were married at Holy Name Cathedral in Chicago, the city’s second oldest Catholic church.

The estate …

Heather & Rob: Wedding Gallery

Heather & Rob were married at St. John’s Lutheran Church in Chicago. Heather’s grandparents were actually married at the same church, how cool is that! Once again, Justin Edmonds was with me for the day. Justin started with Rob and his guys, while I started with Heather and the girls getting ready. The rain threatened all day, but slowed down just enough for Heather and Rob to see each other for the first time downstairs in front of the door …
