The stunning Chicago views at the Crown from the top of the Tribune Tower can’t be beat, and they were certainly spectacular for Jessica and Craig’s wedding earlier this summer! We enjoyed photographing the couple and their wedding party in the heart of downtown only to be followed by a sun-filled ceremony overlooking the city. Here are a few of our favorite moments!

We are thrilled to share Alice and David’s gorgeous wedding in April at the Ivy Room in downtown Chicago. It was a pleasure partnering with Pollen Floral and It’s All Happening Events who helped orchestrate and create a beautiful backdrop for their wedding. Here are a few of our favorite photos!

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!

We met up on a beautiful recent fall morning with Julie and Andrew for their Lincoln Park engagement session. The lighting was absolutely perfect that time of day and we’re thrilled to share a few of our favorites! We can’t wait for their wedding next month!

When Ann and JD decided to get married in Chicago, they knew exactly where to host their June nuptials, the Drake Hotel. They had recently stayed in the Princess Diana suite at the Drake and knew it was the perfect place to stay in Chicago for their wedding weekend. We met them in the Suite that afternoon while they prepared for the upcoming events. The intimate ceremony and reception were both held at the hotel, the reception taking place in the Palm Court of the Drake. Here are just a few of our favorite shots from the day!

We are thrilled to release Arlene and Vineet’s June wedding photos on the blog today! The day began with a beautiful ceremony at St. Alphonsus Church in Lakeview. Then we traveled with the bridal party throughout the city to a few of our favorite spots, the Alfred Caldwell Lily Pool, North Avenue Beach and Michigan Avenue. The evening continued with an elegant reception at the Intercontinental Hotel in downtown Chicago on Michigan Avenue. The night was complete with a fun C+A dance floor. Here are a few of our favorite photos!

We love the story about Leslie and Sam first meeting at Castaways on North Avenue beach after a volleyball game a summer evening not too long ago. It was very appropriate they picked the pier at North Avenue Beach for their first look! We also sneaked in a few photos at Castaways before heading to A New Leaf for their ceremony and reception. The evening was complete with catering by Hearty Boys and florals by A New Leaf. Here are a few of our favorite moments from the day.

We photographed Candice and Bill’s wedding almost exactly a year ago, so we were thrilled when they reached out for a maternity session this summer! They’re expecting a baby boy very soon and their pig, Rosie, will be so excited to have a playmate! Here are a few photos we captured at their Chicago home that we just love.
