Congratulations Matt & Kristyn!

Matt & Kristyn were married a few short months ago.  Their wedding Ceremony and Reception were held at the InterContinental Chicago O’Hare in Rosemont.  We had a first look at the hotel and then took a quick ride downtown to take some Relaxed Portraits prior to heading back to the hotel for the ceremony and reception.

Matt and I met through a mutual friend our sophomore year in high school. We were set-up on a blind date for date for homecoming and hit it off! We dated from high school through college and decided to go our separate ways. Three years later we got in contact again and have been together ever since. After becoming established at our jobs we moved in together. We have become big fans of the Chicago Blackhawks and were engaged at a game in February 2013.

Take a moment to take a look at some of my favorite photos and slideshow!

Congratulations Wayne & Haemi!

Wayne & Haemi were married in September.  I had a wonderful time shooting their engagement ceremony earlier in the year and the wedding proved to be just as fun!  The Ceremony and Reception were held at the South Shore Cultural Center.  We did a first look and many of the Relaxed Portraits prior to the ceremony in order to make the most of our time – it was a great day and we got some truly amazing shots.  This was another wedding with very rich cultural roots.  Wayne & Haemi participated in a traditional Korean Paebek ceremony during the reception – which was very colorful and fun to take part in.

As always, here are a few of my favorite shots from the day.

I really love the way how you shot weddings, very creative and the way you capture the emotions.

Congratulations Josh & Phyllis!

Josh & Phyllis were married at the beginning of November and their wedding was one of my last for 2013.  A mixture of cultures and traditions, Josh & Phyllis created a beautiful event that brought a tear to many eyes.  Starting with a Tea Ceremony in the morning followed by a Ceremony and Reception at the Ivy Room at Tree Studios, the wedding was wonderful.

From Phyllis…

We met at a Blackhawks game, got engaged at a dog shelter in Utah (Josh is totally charming and didn’t get nervous at all), wedding planning was brutal because we apparently like to control a lot of the details but we hardly had any time to do it.

Really, Josh tried to put the ring on the wrong finger (Phyllis’ right hand, not left)!

Here are a few of my favorite photos from the day along with a slideshow.

Congratulations Nikesh & Pritha!

Nikesh & Pritha had an amazing wedding weekend in August.  I love shooting Indian weddings because of their amazing culture and colors.  There are amazing photographs to be had at almost every moment!  The Sangeet was held at the Shedd Aquarium and the wedding day events were held at the stunning Ballroom at the Hilton Chicago.  There was even a fantastic Baraat complete with a white stallion that proceeded down Michigan Avenue!  Also – I don’t know how Nikesh arranged it, but they had Ira Glass (of This American Life) do the voiceover for their wedding video introduction!

Do take a look at some of my favorite images – there are many from this wedding!

Your work is amazing. These pictures are pieces of art. Thanks for sharing!

Merry Christmas & Happy Holidays!

As the year closes out I just wanted to take a quick moment to thank all of my clients from 2013 for trusting me to document their wedding day.  To my clients for 2014, I am looking forward to working with you all next year!

Happy Holidays!
