Liz and Henry asked me to document their elopement at City Hall a few weeks ago. We met up on a super sunny summer morning, lined up with the other soon-to-be newlyweds and filed into the office where the judge granted matrimonial magic. Then we took a little walk down to Olive Park for a few portraits and called it a wedding.
Thanks for asking me to shoot your marrige Liz and Henry!
Ivy and Shannon got married at The Garfield Park Conservatory. The ceremony took place in the steamy fern room and then everybody was ready to party! @jawshuadrumms provided the karaoke jams and some sweet back-ups. This was one helluva fun wedding and I’m so glad to have been there! Thanks Ivy and Shannon!
Hilja and Zach got married at Room 1520 recently and whatta fun day it was! We cruised around town in a limo, jumped out for pics at The Kinzie Street Bridge and even managed to squeeze in some arcade time at the worlds best bar, Logan Arcade. After their charming lil’ ceremony, everybody wined, dined and primed themselves for dancing. Groove is in the Heart Dj, Carrieanne, served the musical treats to keep those feet moving! Congrats Hilja and Zach and thanks for asking me to photograph your wedding!
Diane and Dagan were in town, from Vermont, to get married and they asked me to catch the day with my trusty camera. We started out with a first look at Westin River North and then grabbed the bridal party, strolled around The River Walk and hung around on the Lasalle Street Bridge. We headed to Gallery 1028 where Diane and Dagan caught up with family and friends and then came the ceremony. They were married, everybody dined, and Tim from Toast & Jam got everybody dancing. Another smash hit of wedding! Thanks, Diane and Dagan, for asking me to be a part of it!
Stefanie and Nicole were married on a steamy August afternoon at the lovely Redfield Estate. Their wedding was so much fun to shoot and it so cool to be a part of it! Nicole’s brother even busted into a killer Pee Wee Herman Dance at the reception. What a night! Thanks for asking me to photograph your wedding!
John and Allison were married at Honky Tonk’s Secret Garden in Pilsen and I was the lucky dude that photographed it. We started out at their place, where they had their first looks of each other and then we paraded on down to the Garden where the guests were already waiting to witness this union. It was great! They kissed under an explosion of confetti, dined and danced into a sweaty frenzy. This was such a cool and unique wedding and I’m honored to have been a part. Way to go John and Allison! Thanks for having me!
John and Kristine are an awesome couple who were married at Salvage One this spring. I was the lucky guy that got to photograph their wedding day. Thanks so much, John and Kristine. You rule!
Billy and Maddie threw an awesome wedding party and it was so much fun top photograph! After shooting some engagement pics their favorite grocery store a few months ago, I knew this wedding would be out of the ordinary. Once they got themselves looking real sharp, Billy and Maddie caught their first looks of each other at Mary Bartelme Park, a favorite lunchtime spot of Maddie’s. We hung around the park’s urban landscape for a bit and then headed over to Prairie Production for the ceremony. They kept the ceremony real short and got right down to business……ceremonial shots of Malort and a great big kiss! After the ceremony everybody filed inside to feast, drink up (on Billy’s homebrew) and party down. Just before sunset, I snuck Billy and Maddie outside for a stroll around the block. When we returned, everybody was ready to tear up the dance floor….and so they did. This wedding was such a ripper! Thanks for letting me be a part of it!
