Sara and Ryan

In December I photographed Sara and Ryan’s wedding at Bottom Lounge in Chicago. It was the perfect venue for two music lovers to get married at! I loved the loft style atmosphere of the reception space and the backdrop of the ‘L’ on Lake. They got ready at the Wit downtown Chicago before heading over the Bottom Lounge for their ceremony. Even though it was a little chilly Sara and Ryan were willing to walk a couple of blocks to do some portraits in front of some nearby street art. I loved working with them and I hope you enjoy looking at a few of my favorite photos from their day! Here’s a list of their wedding vendors:

Keith and Madelene's Wedding

Keith and Madelene had such a sweet and intimate wedding fete on April 1st, and we just loved being a part of their laid-back celebration! They had a beautiful ceremony followed by a pie reception and dinner at The Girl and the Goat - if you haven't had the opportunity to eat there, we 10/10 recommend.

Every detail of their day was carefully crafted.  We love how much though was put into every moment.

Thank you, Keith and Madelene, for allowing us to be present.

Christy and Greg's Wedding

Christy and Greg had such a sweet and simple wedding in Chicago this past Fall!  Jaci Weber of Clementine Custom Events made sure everything was seamless and beautiful!  Their ceremony at Galleria Marchetti was the perfect choice of location! Can we talk about their flowers for a second, though?  Sarah of Vale of Enna absolutely blew our minds with her stunning floral creations!  Take a peek at her work!  Amazing!

Please enjoy a few of our favorite images from Christy and Greg's sweet wedding day!

Evamarie and Richard's Engagement Session

If you know anything about us, by now, it's that we really like dogs!  So, when Evamarie and Richard asked if their beautiful English Springer Spaniel could tag along for their Engagement Session, we were totally on-board! I had so much fun doing their photos around Lincoln Park and along the Lakefront!   Could their puppy possibly be any prettier??

These two are getting married in Mackinac this Summer and we wish them all the best!
