We were thrilled to take part in another fantastic Indiewed event at the Ravenswood Event Center on February 6. We look forward to taking part in this show of curated wedding professionals every year. Indiewed is an alternative to a traditional wedding expo event, exactly the type of event where we feel at home! We enjoyed having our booth on the first floor among the main action this year. The third floor “Camp Indiewed” lounge was pretty amazing as well! Here are a few shots recapping the day by Cage and Aquarium photographer, Alex Friedland.

We are excited to share Lauren and Jordan’s wedding on the blog today! They were married at the end of December at the Revolution Brewery Taproom. Before we headed to the venue for their ceremony and reception we took their wedding party to the warm indoor location of Chicago’s Union Station for a photo session. The flowers by Fab Flora were stunning. The food and drinks by Revolution did not disappoint! Here are a few of our favorite shots from the day.

We are excited to share Julie and Andrew’s December wedding on the blog today just before the holidays! We began the day with the bride and groom at the stunning Public Hotel and traveled throughout the city to take photos at some of our favorite spots. The holiday decor along Michigan Avenue was a beautiful addition to our photo session. The ceremony was held at Kitchen Chicago and reception at Cityview Loft. We enjoyed partnering with LM Catering and Robert Neri Floral Design for this event! Here are a few of our favorite photos from the day.

We are excited to share Melissa and Andrew’s wedding photos at the Chicago Marriott O’Hare hotel. Melissa and Andrew had a vision for their wedding and we hope we helped make those picture perfect memories! We took some beautiful fall photos with the wedding party at the nearby forest preserve. Their ceremony and reception Marriott ballroom was simply stunning. Here are a few of our favorite photos from the whole day!

It was really fun when James and Katherine had us come out to photograph a couple’s session in the heart of Chicago. The couple is already married, but had their engagement and wedding photos elsewhere. This session was to celebrate their lives and somewhat recent move to Chicago. We went to a few beautiful locations including Michigan Avenue, Millennium Park and Olive Park. Here are a few of our favorite photos from the session!
