Crystal & David: City View Loft Wedding Photos

City View Loft Chicago Wedding Photos

Crystal and David were married at City View Loft in Chicago’s West Town neighborhood. I’m always a fan of brick and timber spaces so I was excited to shoot in City View Loft’s new space. Both Crystal and David got ready at their home near the venue – the two-flat design was perfect with separate floors for each. I started with Crystal and the ladies upstairs.

Tribune Tower Crown Wedding Photos

I’ve shot at most of Chicago’s best wedding venues, but every once in a while I get to work in a truly unique space – that’s exactly what happened with Jaclyn and Tom’s Tribune Tower Crown wedding photos.

Emily & Kieran: Adler Planetarium Wedding Photos

As a Chicago wedding photographer, I’m used to shooting around Adler Planetarium. It’s easily one of the most requested Chicago wedding photo locations, in big part because it offers the most complete skyline view in the city. So even though I’ve shot a lot of Adler Planetarium wedding photos, it wasn’t until Emily & Kieran’s wedding day that I actually got to shoot inside. As excited as I was to photograph in the beautiful venue, I was even happier to …
