Art Lover's Wedding

Art loving hikers-my kind of couple. It's always a treat to photograph at The Art Institute of Chicago and it's spaces of grandeur. Supporting cast included Anticipation Events, Forget Me Knodt  flowers, Elizabeth-Anne Stewart officiant,  Matt Stedman Band and the Park Hyatt, on a rainy night....Congratulations Pam & Ed ♥

Meg and Kevin-Having fun

I'm fortunate to have found and established relationships with excellent photographers and assistants who have stayed with me over time, making the approach and overall coverage of events a seamless affair. One of my first shooters, Frank, collaborated with, and documented, the groomsmen playing a game of pick up while I was having fun with the bridesmaids as they were getting ready. The ceremony was held at St. Francis Xavier in Wilmette, followed by a trip to the beach. If you are looking for a garden party reception, consider Winnetka Community House with Catered by Design.

The Alternative School Portrait

I wouldn't want the traditional school portrait replaced, but a b&w, natural light rendition might be a nice option for the spring...

It's all in the Details

This is such a lovely example of how it all comes together-with some help. I wasn't surprised to find out the fitting, lovingly crafted floral displays were the work of Fleur. A welcome etsy find are the rustic, chic printed printed materials from Beacon Lane. The crew from Hearty Boys catering was-as always-fun, generous, relaxed, and professional. They also create one of the best vegetarian dishes around! All of this was enjoyed after an Old St. Michaels ceremony and some picture taking around town.

The Portrait Station

A few people are inquiring about having a 'portrait station' set up at their event. This is a great way for family and friends to have a professional photograph taken while everyone is looking great and in fine spirits ; )  Here are a few samples of what we can do;  Natural. Authentic. Creative. Fun.             All images are originally captured in color (just shown here in b&w).
