Megan + James

Megan + James both started their day getting ready with friends and family at the Four Seasons hotel in Chicago, before heading to stunning St. Michael’s Church in Old Town to say their “I Do’s.” As officially husband and wife, they took a stroll by the river near the Michigan Ave. bridge with their wedding party, and then had some private moments on their own. Here are some of my favorite soft moments from their wedding day as the second photographer!

Heirloom Albums + Boxes

Digital images are, of course, valuable, but there’s nothing like holding and feeling, and seeing your images as a tangible object of the finest quality. 

My Heirloom wedding albums and handmade boxes feature the finest Italian book cloth in a variety of colors, 100% cotton paper, and 24k gold or silver embossing, making them treasured objects to be passed down from generation to generation, and lovely keepsakes to show off your most memorable day to friends and family. 

My USB boxes and keepsake boxes are hand crafted by yours truly and are designed to replicate books that can sit on your table, or added to your library. The keepsake boxes are compartmentalized to hold your most treasured items from your wedding day. 

These albums and boxes are integrated into my packages, or they can be ordered a la carte. Do feel free to inquire about custom-made boxes, as well! 

Helen + Griffin

As we enter the New Year, I find myself looking back at some of the beautiful weddings I was able to shoot in 2016. I thought, what better way to reflect on the New Year by highlighting some of the moments that have been captured. 

This particular wedding was lead by Heather Decamp Photography, and as she documented Helen’s experience throughout this May day, I was able to focus on Griffin. There’s something really beautiful at merging the two perspectives together into one captured day.

I met Griffin and his best men at the Palmer House. Little did we know that the hotel would be completely surrounded by the Memorial Day parade, causing a few of the gang to meet a little later than planned. Having a bit more time on our hand, Griffin and the boys started talking about their love of comics, so much that they had one on hand to show off. 

Shortly after, we headed down to Grant Park for the groom to meet his bride. They met, they laughed, they kissed, and we took a nice stroll through the park before heading to Bridgeport Art Center for the ceremony, where friends and family warmly gathered to witness their marriage, dine and dance together.
