Great Custom USB Drives

For all my photographer friends out there looking for great USB drives for delivery of digital files, you definitely should take a look at USB Memory Direct.  I just received an order of drives as a test and they are really great!

There are a bunch of different styles available, and their prices are pretty competitive.

Anyway, just wanted to pass on the information as someone else out there might be looking for a supplier for these as well!

Congratulations Krystian & Allison!

Krystian & Allison were married a few months back.  Their ceremony was held at St. Thomas of Villanova followed by a reception at the Schaumburg Golf Club.  There was a hiccup on the wedding day as a storm had come through a day before and knocked out power to the reception hall.  However, the Schaumburg Golf Club did a great job in powering the whole event with generator power and the wedding went on without a hitch!

Please check out a few of my favorite photos and a slideshow.

Congratulations Matthew & Christiana!

Matthew & Christiana were married in July.  Their ceremony was held at Annunciation Greek Orthodox Church and the reception was held at the Palmer House.  We spent some time taking photos around Millenium Park prior to heading into the reception location.  What a wonderful wedding day and a gorgeous couple!

A little information about how the bride and groom met.

In September of 2011 Matt was a senior emergency medicine resident at Northwestern Memorial Hospital in Chicago. One day an anesthesia intern named Christiana showed up for her first shift of her required emergency rotation. Both were wearing scrubs and neither looking their best. Showers may or may not have been omitted that morning.

Despite that, Matt asked her out for drinks about halfway into their first shift together (it was all very Grey’s Anatomy), they went out later that week and started dating quickly after that.

After about 2 years Matt figured he’d better lock this down… In the words of a close family friend of the Roussis family “what the hell are you waiting for?”

So he made her a photobook about their relationship that culminated in a proposal. She said, “oh my gosh! I can’t believe you did all this!” and then after some further prompting said “yes!”

They celebrated with family and friends at the Drake Hotel.

Congratulations Lawton & Breanne!

Lawton & Breanne were married back on July 4th.  Their ceremony was held at St. Mary’s Church in Huntley followed by a reception at Makray Memorial Golf Club in Barrington.  The day was beautiful and I could not have asked for a more fun couple to work with.  Late night Gelato served up via a Gelato D’Oro gelato truck and fireworks in the distance topped off this great event!

Congratulations Thomas & Ashley!

Thomas & Ashley were married back in June of this year (yes I know I’m behind on blog posts!).  Their ceremony was held at St. Vincent DePaul, one of my favorite ceremony venues in Chicago!  Their reception was held at the Allerton Hotel – where we braved hanging out on the fire escape at the top of the building to get some great shots late in the evening!

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