Chicago Wedding Photographer: ISPWP Award-winning photograph

I love seeing this little guy win another contest… first, it was a Fearless Award and now, he ranked 20th in the Kids Will Be Kids category of the International Society of Professional Wedding Photographers (ISPWP).

Congratulations to all the winners and thanks to the judges for the recognition!  Happy holidays, everyone!

Chicago Cantigny Gardens Wedding Photography: Jackie and Chris

Jackie and Chris honestly couldn’t have chosen a better day for an outdoor wedding ceremony at the beautiful Cantigny Gardens.  The autumn colors, warm light and lush garden truly made for a very unique and serene setting.  And, if it looks like these two smiled all day, they did!

Thanks so much for including me in your day!  Very best wishes to you both!

Special thanks to Travis Haughton for shooting this special wedding with me!

Chicago Wedding Photography: Pauli and Chris

I’m so pleased to share the wedding of Pauli and Chris!  These two had, without a doubt, one of the most emotionally touching weddings I have had the pleasure to document.  The tearful speeches, to Pauli’s tears during the first dance, to the crazy fun dance floor with all of their friends and loved ones, it was a fantastic wedding that I will always remember.

Thank you so, so much!  Please enjoy your blog post and I am wishing you nothing but continued happiness!

And a very special thank you to my friend Travis Haughton for capturing great images of Chris getting ready, a beautiful shot of Pauli and her father walking down the aisle, for singing along with me to Miley Cyrus inside the bus with the wedding party and not complaining once (I complained!) about getting stung by mosquitoes during our portrait session.  Thank you!

Chicago MCA Elopement: Caroline and Aaron

Caroline and Aaron eloped to Chicago, got ready at the Waldorf Astoria and planned to visit the Chicago Riot Festival after their ceremony.  The muddy grounds weren’t great for a bridal gown, so we visited the Chicago MCA and hung out with David Bowie!  Well, his photo, anyway!

Thanks so much, Caroline and Aaron, for including me in your day!  Also thank you to officiant Howard Katz for all of your help!  Very best wishes to you all!
