TIPS & ADVICE FOR COUPLES
wedding planning guide
I’m so happy you’ve found this wedding planning guide! One of my favorite parts about being a wedding photojournalist, is getting to help couples in the planning process. Obviously, there’s no shortage of great wedding planning resources online and I always recommend working with a planner, but I love sharing my personal experiences in the form of tips and advice. This guide is meant to focus on the kinds of things that I know will help you get your best photos!
Whether you’ve already reserved your date or we haven’t even met yet, you’ll find a variety of planning resources that will be helpful as you prepare for your wedding. In photographing nearly 200 weddings we’ve seen it all and learned even more. I assembled this guide because I want to share share some of those personal experiences.
My hope is that by sharing this information, your day will be less stressful, you will enjoy it more, and you’ll get your best photos! While everything in this guide may not apply to your wedding, I hope it will help you prepare and understand what to expect. From engagement session to wedding day, things will go smoother, and you’ll be able to spend more time planning your honeymoon or next date night instead of worrying about the wedding.If you don’t have your venue yet, don’t miss our Chicago Wedding Venue Guide.
We’ve also assembled a list of awesome vendors and engagement photo locations. I’m looking forward to working together and telling the story of your day!
