Katie and Mark

Katie and Mark got married in Chicago a few weeks ago at the gorgeous Assumption Catholic Church and had their reception at the amazing Ignite Glass Studio. The weather was slightly on the erratic side with lots of wind and a bit of hail but that didn’t stop Katie and Mark (and party!). After they got married we hit up a few spots around the city for portraits. We went to the Kinzie Street Bridge, Chicago Board of Trade, and finished up at Ignite. They were such a great crew to hang out with! The reception and all the details were coordinated by the exceptional Kim Weinberg of Liven it up Events. Huge thanks to Nicholas Holstein for photographing with me. Enjoy a few of my favorite pictures from their day!

Russell and Valerie

I had the pleasure of photographing Russell and Valerie's wedding ceremony at the Unitarian Church in Hinsdale.  It was an intimate event and I felt very honored to be a part of it.  Usually I'm photographing for an entire day on the weekend but their wedding took only a couple of hours on weekday so it was nice to switch things up!  I still got to do a few portraits of them just outside the church before their dinner at Vie in Western Springs. I loved working with Valerie and Russell and spending time with their family and friends for the afternoon. Here's a few of my favorite photos from their wedding.

Lauren and Mark's Wedding

Lauren and Mark had their wedding ceremony at the beautiful All Saints Episcopal Church in Chicago and their reception was held at Morton's Steakhouse downtown. They had just their immediate families with them so we got to do a full family group shot with the skyline in the background. Lauren and Mark were a fun and laid back couple and I got some great candid shots out of them.  Also, we LOVE her pink shoes! -Jake
