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 …

Rachel & Adam: Kenosha Harbor Engagement Photos

I drove up to Wisconsin for a fall engagement session with Rachel and Adam. We met at the office that they both work at, which had a beautiful walking path on the surrounding land. I always encourage couples to pick places that are meaningful to the two of them, so their work was perfect. We also headed over to Kenosha Harbor for our second location. We had beautiful light all afternoon and the trees even gave us a little fall …

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.

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 …

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. Once everyone was ready, Nicole and Elliott did a first look at the golf course. With everyone there, we were able to finish family photos early and still have lots of time to wander the grounds for portraits …

Ashley & Jason: Maggiano’s Chicago Wedding Photos

Ashley & Jason were married at Holy Name Cathedral in Chicago, the city’s second oldest Catholic church. I had a blast hanging out with Ashley and her friends and family while they got ready at theWit Hotel. I always love hotels for morning preparations, but I think there’s something extra special about the light at theWit. Thomas Pham helped me out by covering Jason while he got ready. After the ceremony, we traveled to Adler Planetarium for portraits with the …
