You can’t go wrong with an outdoor ceremony…well yes, I know, the weather could go wrong. If it were up to me, all of my clients would shoot for an outdoor portion of their day. It’s SO worth it to enjoy the outdoors.
Emily and Joe’s ceremony atop Lacuna Artists Loft’s Rooftop was to-die-for. I think it will make a few Chicago brides more brave as they plan for their big day 😉 In my experience…it is so totally worth the risk.
Since they didn’t have an album booked in their package, I couldn’t help but create a digital album for them to cherish!
Happy one month you two!
Chicago Indian Wedding at the Sri Venkateswara Swami Temple
John and Namrita, it has been an honor to get to know the two of you over the past year; getting to explore New York and share your special engagement both there and back in Chicago. There are few couples who display such genuine adoration towards one another.
It is evident.
It is inspiring.
It gives us no greater pleasure than to tell the story of your wedding day; a day full bright florals, rich culture, joyous dancing & singing, delicious Indian sweets and treats, and of course full of love!
“I don’t know why I get to have you. I know I’m lucky. I know you’re special.
With you I have learned to be grateful for everything, because it is one more day that I am living my dream. And every day is unbelievable. My goal in life is to make you smile. I told you a long time ago that maybe I wasn’t the right person for the job, but you said I was. You’re good and genuine and thoughtful and honest and reflective. You’re a hard person to live up to, but I am happily taking on that challenge.”
We’ve had the pleasure of shooting and celebrating with our couples at Byron Colby Barn several times in the last two years (including a wedding I was maid of honor in!). Needless to say, it has become a favorite. What’s not to love about twinkle lights, indoor and outdoor ceremony options, and endless portrait locations in the surrounding area. We love the neutral color palette Cara and Andy selected for their day- not to mention their adorable twin flower girls!

It is always a special treat to see our couples’ families grow!
It is one of my favorite aspects of being a wedding and Chicago maternity photographer. We had the pleasure of capturing Marlon and Nancy’s wedding day videography. One year later here we are celebrating once again, though this time a family of three 🙂 We can’t wait to meet your little angel and finish our in-home lifestyle session!
Cheers to love and the miracle of life!

The Grove Redfield Estate has become one of our favorite wedding venues in the Northwest suburbs of Chicago- especially for Chicago outdoor wedding venues. Mike and Kate- you absolutely rocked your wedding day! Endless beauty and celebration-Stephen captured your day flawlessly! We are honored to have played such a special role in your day!
Enjoy the love, joy, and warm rays of sunshine!
Being a Chicago documentary photographer gives the gift of capturing diverse couples. Each of our couples so diverse in attributes, culture, and background, but yet all with one thing in common.
Cheesy, weird, inexplicable, unfailing, extraordinary… love.
It’s something so common yet contrarily rare. It’s what makes our jobs so sacred. I think that’s what us documentary wedding photographers feel most fortunate to capture. I don’t think I could have asked any more of Lauren and Jason during their engagement session downtown Chicago. You two are lovely to the core with your love for one another so evident. A photographer’s dream come true! Plus, any engagement session ending with Rosemary margaritas at Antique Taco is a win in my book!
