Jessie and Omar got married at Salvage One a few weeks ago.  This venue is one of my favorite places to shoot at.  Seriously, everywhere you turn there’s a cool place to take photos.  Jessie and Omar’s ceremony took place inside the venue among rows of salvaged church pews and random chandeliers.  At the end of the night we had a ton of fun with the sparklers in front of the iconic Chicago sign. Enjoy the photos!

Becky and Tyler’s summer wedding took place at the gorgeous First Congregational Church in Western Springs. After they said their vows we went over to their reception which was at one of our favorite venues Lacuna Artists Lofts in Chicago.  We are artists and we love loft venues so that equals perfect! There are so many great portrait locations in Lacuna we could spend the whole day shooting there.  Becky, Tyler and their party were an amazing group of people to work for!

Marybeth and Aaron had a beautiful ceremony at an amazing venue called Greenhouse Loft in Chicago.  This whole place was filled with natural light and, since they had a brunch wedding, I was able take advantage of the fantastic lighting the whole time.  Marybeth and Aaron got ready at the Talbott Hotel downtown and they did their first look and some portraits around the corner at the 4th Presbyterian Church. We then finished up the portraits at Greenhouse loft before they got married.  Their reception was so much fun and I think literally everybody was on the dance floor at one point.  Also, they did what was probably the best fake out first dance I’ve witnessed!  Here’s a few photos from their day!

Love, laughter, and good people.  This wedding had it all.

We were so happy to capture these moments with Sarah and Al on their incredible wedding day, and we are honored to have been a part of it.  From their sweet first look, a pit-stop during portraits for ice cream, their sincere and heartfelt vows, to the moves on the dance floor — this wedding was one for the books.

Take a peek at some of our favorite images from their day!

A couple of weeks ago I met up with Angela and Luke for a few post-wedding portraits in downtown Hinsdale. I love shooting in old downtown areas as I usually find lots of scenes to photograph in.  Downtown Hinsdale is actually where Jennifer and I had our engagement portraits taken and being there brought back some memories!  Here’s a few photos from their shoot!
