Jennifer & Jeremy: Olive Park Engagement Photos

Jennifer and Jeremy’s Olive Park engagement session technically started at Navy Pier. We met at Harry Caray’s Tavern for a drink before we started shooting. I always love to catch up with my couples for a bit and it’s a great way to relax before we get going. We were able to pack a little bit of everything into the shoot. We started with a walk along Oak Street beach. From there we headed out to Olive Park which I …

Bridgeport Art Center Wedding Photos: Susan & Blake

Bridgeport Art Center Skyline Loft is one of my favorite wedding venues in the city. I love the exposed brick and timber loft style, and that’s also why Susan & Blake picked it. I started the morning with Susan while she got ready at her condo with her bridesmaids and mother. Justin started the morning with Blake and the guys at Westin River North. After everyone was finished getting ready and Susan was in her dress, Blake came upstairs to …

Alison & Todd: Hyatt Chicago Mag Mile Wedding Photos

Alison & Todd were married at Hyatt Chicago Magnificent Mile. My morning started with Alison in one of the best bridal suites I’ve been in. I guess that’s the bonus when you’re getting married at the hotel! Since Todd was getting ready just a few floors away, I was able to bounce back and forth. After their first look, we headed a few blocks south near the Wrigley Building for portraits. We walked along the riverfront to a small park …

We had beautiful light all afternoon and the trees even gave us a little fall …

Neha & Sachin: Glessner House Wedding Photos

Neha & Sachin held their wedding ceremony at Glessner House on Chicago’s south side. I started the morning with Neha as she finished her preparations.

Will Nunnally shot alongside me for the day and met me at Glessner House for the baraat. Sachin and his friends and family made their way up the street while dancing and celebrating. It’s always …

Erin & Chris: Green Mill Engagement Photos

I met Erin at Chris at the historic Green Mill cocktail lounge in Chicago’s Uptown neighborhood. We chatted with some of the regulars for a bit over a drink before we wandered to the back to find Al Capone’s favorite booth. We left Green Mill, to walk over under the El tracks at the Lawrence Ave. CTS station. After a quick cab ride down Lake Shore Drive we made our way through the southern part of Lincoln Park en route …
