Summertime Chicago Engagement Session: Katie & Aaron

Summertime Chicago Engagement Session: Katie & Aaron

Katie and Aaron, like many couples, postponed their fall 2020 wedding plans to later this year. But that gave us time this summer for an engagement session here in downtown Chicago. The weather started looked dicey all morning, but thankfully we stuck with the plan and the rain stayed away. We enjoyed a great afternoon and evening walking through some of Chicago’s best engagement locations…

Historic Frank Lloyd Wright Building Wedding: Lauren & Dan

Historic Frank Lloyd Wright Building Wedding: Lauren & Dan

Lauren and Dan were married at the historic Rookery Building in Chicago. It’s been a bit since I shot at the Rookery building and I almost forgot what a treat it is.

I spent the morning with Lauren and her bridesmaids getting ready around the corner at the JW Marriott Hotel. It was nice chill morning and I loved Lauren’s mom’s excitement as she buttoned Lauren into the dress. But the faces of Lauren’s bridesmaids seeing her in it for the first time was the real showstopper!

Behind The Scenes – 2019

Behind The Scenes – 2019

At every wedding, myself and the Wasabi team work to make the best possible photos for our couples. I say team, because it really is a team effort to create unique, storytelling images. I like to remind people, as photojournalists we “put the camera where it needs to be.” We also end up doing lots of weird things to help our couples and make great photos – such as chasing away geese, moving scooters or carrying 10′ ladders to get the perfect high angle. We trim weeds and rearrange furniture. We end up adjusting bow-ties and assisting with boutonnières – so many that we carry our own pins for them…

Downtown Chicago Fall Engagement Session: Sarah & Haley

Downtown Chicago Fall Engagement Session: Sarah & Haley

I met up with Haley and Sarah downtown at Cindy’s Rooftop for a drink before starting their engagement session. I’d been waiting to get to Maggie Daley Park and with the fall leaves changing, this was the perfect time. We started with a walk through park and found lots of great fall color. These two were all laughs and it made capturing real moments so much fun…
