Congratulations Matt & Andrea!

Matt and Andrea were married on May 19th. Their wedding ceremony was held at St. Hyacinth Basilica (I shoot there alot!), followed by an awesome reception at the Metropolitan Club on the 66th floor of the Sears Tower! The weather was beautiful and we got a lot of fun pictures throughout the day. The day couldn’t have gone any smoother, thanks to D’Rita Robinson (Dreams by D’Rita) providing the event coordination.

I really love it when couples just tell me to “do my thing” and give me complete creative control over the day!

Frank & Karen E-Session!

Frank and Karen are getting married later this year. We had the opportunity to shoot an engagement session last weekend. The day was beautiful! We spent some time walking around the Lincoln Park area and along the Lake Michigan Shore.

Congratulations Bryan & Alicia!

Bryan and Alicia both live in New York, but got married in the Chicago area. They couldn’t have asked for a more beautiful day! The marriage ceremony took place at St. Petronille in Glen Ellen. We shot over to Cantigny Gardens to shoot some relaxed portraits before heading over to the Danada House for a fantastic reception. The entertainment was provided by the Larry King Orchestra – which did a fantastic job!

Thanks for allowing me to take part in your truly wonderful day! I hope you are having fun in Hawaii!

Congratulations Carlos & Joanna!

I don’t know if any of my 2007 couples can top the awesome wedding that Carlos and Joanna just put on a couple weeks ago! (If you are reading this and I’m shooting your wedding this year – prove me wrong!) 🙂

The venues were fabulous and two of the best in the Chicagoland area. The marriage ceremony took place at St. Hyacinth Basilica, and the reception at Germania Place – both located in Chicago.

Carlos and Joanna come from very different backgrounds. Joanna is Polish and Carlos is from Honduras. They are also both lovers of music and dance – which really showed in their choice of reception entertainment.

The cocktail hour featured the Dave Miranda guitar trio providing some great guitar music, followed by a few performances by a Polish Dance Troupe!

The Georgia Frances Orchestra provided much of the evening dance music, followed by a few sets by Bandoleros. These guys were just amazing!

I had a blast and we got some great shots. Much thanks to Brian Choi for second shooting with me on this wedding!

Here are a bunch of my favorites out of the thousands of frames captured!

Congratulations you guys! Have fun on your Honeymoon!

Hey John!

I really love some of these images. The b/w dance shots, feet, and the color in some of those are just fantastic. The church shot is amazing! Love it.

Keep em coming and good luck in 2007!
