Courtney + Justin

Occasionally, I will second shoot for other wedding photographers. It’s something I really enjoy doing, because as a second photographer, I have more opportunity to capture candid moments between the bride and groom, and their friends and family. On this wedding, I was playing side kick to fellow Green Wedding Alliance member, Heather Decamp, of Heather DeCamp Photography.

Courtney + Justin got married on a frosty April day, where the flowers were just beginning to bloom, and the season had gifted us with its final snow flurries. I spent time with the groom and his groomsmen, and they prepared at Loew’s Hotel, and as we arrived in trolley at St. Michael’s Church in the Old Town neighborhood of Chicago, I peeked in on the bride and her girls as she prepared to walk down the aisle. 

After the ceremony, we headed over with the bridal party to Lincoln Park Zoo for some photos of the happy bride and groom.
