We were so thrilled that Stephanie and Ryan’s outdoor wedding ceremony went off without a hitch even though it rained most of the afternoon! We ended up getting to take photos at a few great indoor spots, though, so no complaints on our end! The getting ready and first look photos at the Palmer House Hilton were fantastic, we were able to duck into the Art Institute for a few as well before heading to Union Station. The ceremony and reception were held at the breathtaking Galleria Marchetti. Here are a few of our favorite shots!

A couple of years ago we photographed Laura and Joe’s one year anniversary session in Chicago and we were beyond thrilled when they contacted us for photos of their newborn Jeffrey last month! He was so alert for the whole photo session that we’re sure he took a good nap afterward. Here are a few of our favorite shots!

Amy and Leo held their wedding festivities in the heart of downtown Chicago. They got ready at the Intercontinental Hotel next door to the Tribune building. Then we headed to the top of the Tribune tower for their first look. The historic Crown at the Tribune Tower has simply stunning views and provided the perfect backdrop for their outdoor wedding ceremony. The guests lingered on the rooftop for cocktails before heading down to Howells & Hood for a delicious meal and lots of dancing! Here are just a few of our favorite photos from the day.

It was a slightly rainy day for Amy and Jeremy’s Chicago wedding, but that didn’t stop them from capturing some beautiful photos at one of our favorite covered spots, Union Station, after they got ready at the W Hotel. Then we headed to the North side for their ceremony and reception held at Mrs. Murphy’s and Sons Irish Bistro on Lincoln Avenue. It was a beautiful evening and here are a few of our favorite shots!

Katie and Greg’s style really showed through in their wedding! We loved the orange colors for the beautifully sunny September day they had. The ceremony was held at St. Edna’s Catholic Church in Arlington Heights and the reception was held at the Royal Melbourne Country Club in Long Grove. We had a blast and here are a few of our favorites!

Jerrie loves to bake and cook, so they brought us to their apartment for a Julia Child inspired engagement session. It was cupcakes galore and we loved their adorable and creative ideas! Then we headed outside to enjoy the beautiful fall weather and take photos at nearby Montrose Harbor. We can’t wait for their wedding next spring at Vincent restaurant in Andersonville. Here are a few of our favorite shots!

We caught up with Christina and Maureen and their three dogs at a small, but beautiful park on an empty lot near their Chicago home toward the end of October for their engagement photos. We can’t wait for their wedding next month at ARTango on Ravenswood. Here are just a few favorites from their engagement session.
