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!

Amanda and Joe

Amanda and Joe got married a couple of weeks ago at one of our favorite venues Warehouse 109. This couple has an amazing sense of style! When Amanda hung up her wedding dress I was speechless and immediately got to work photographing all of their wedding details (including a peanut butter and jelly cake). We did a bunch of portraits at Lake Renwick Forest preserve and they brought along their perfect blue pit named Rosie. Rosie was also their flower girl and sat quietly while their mom and dad got married. Dinner was made to order out of a food truck and their dancing was set to the backdrop of a wall of vintage motorcycles. It was such an incredible day. Congratulations to Amanda and Joe!!
