Willow Harbor Vineyards Wedding Photos

Caitlin and Matt’s Willow Harbor Vineyards wedding in Three Oaks, Mich. came at the end of an eight-week stretch where I shot eight weddings in four states.

Kim & Avram: Hard Rock Hotel Wedding Photos

Downtown Chicago Riverwalk Wedding Photos

Kim and Avram were married at St. Joseph Church in Chicago’s Old Town neighborhood with a reception at Hard Rock Hotel. We actually started and finished at the Hard Rock. I met Kim and the ladies in their suite for hair and makeup. Meanwhile, Justin documented Avram’s morning with the guys. Kim & Avram opted to not see each other before the ceremony, so I’m sure when Avram saw Kim walk down the aisle it was even more special. I …

I met Katie & Kevin at Montrose Beach for their engagement session. It’s one of the more underrated Chicago engagement locations, with a good mix of green space and skyline views. After drinks at The Dock we started on our walking tour, beginning with the bird sanctuary area. We continued out onto the pier and then made our way back to the other side for the skyline view. After an outfit change, we walked back to a large hill that …

While I was looking for unique angles from the second-story loft, Candice was downstairs …

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. The Crown, as it’s called, is a private rooftop veranda on the 25th floor of Chicago’s Tribune Tower and a really cool ceremony venue. My morning started with Jaclyn while she got ready with her ladies at Chicago Marriott Downtown Magnificent Mile. …

Kara & Matt: Architectural Artifacts Wedding Photos

Architectural Artifacts Wedding Photos

Kara and Matt were married at Architectural Artifacts in Chicago’s Ravenswood neighborhood. It’s a venue that’s been on my radar for a while, since I love loft spaces and it’s only a few blocks from my home! So I was super excited to be working with Kara and Matt to make Architectural Artifacts wedding photos. Both Kara and Matt started their morning a The Gwen Hotel downtown. I photographed the ladies getting ready while Justin was with the guys. We …
