Karen & John - Wedding - Fourth Presbyterian Church & Germania Place, Chicago, IL

Lincoln park chicago wedding photography 052.JPG

I travelled back to Chicago to shoot Karen & John’s lovely wedding & they were absolutely wonderful to work with. I had photographed the wedding of some friends’ of John’s & when he first reached out to me, he sent one of the most flattering emails I have received, stating, “You have a gift, and I may have chosen you as my wedding photographer even before I met my fiancé.” How could I not be excited to capture their wedding?

I hadn’t shot at Fourth Presbyterian Church & it is a gem. It’s such a beautiful Gothic revival church & the courtyard is gorgeous for photos, as well. Fun fact: it’s apparently the 2nd oldest building on Michigan avenue. We took post-ceremony portraits in Lincoln Park, which is always lovely.

As you can see from the photos, their reception at Germania Place was a blast.

Bellissima in Pregasina, Lake Garda, Italy

I take a lot of quick portraits of my wife while we travel, but this time I did a mini-portrait session with her. We were staying at the loveliest B&B in an incredibly picturesque mountainside town in Lake Garda, Italy named Pregasina. They had a little property a short hike further up from the B&B where we had watched the sunset the night before, so we had to return for session on our 2nd night there.

Beauty on beauty. 

If anyone wanted to have me shoot their wedding or elopement in Italy, that would be swell. Grazie mille.

Orli & Brandon - Wedding - Bridgeport Art Center, Chicago, IL

These two are so sweet, lovely & brave enough to take some outdoor portraits in the chilly February weather of Chicago. This wedding is also special because I photographed Orli's sister's wedding in 2014 & I'll be capturing their mother's wedding this spring. It's a wonderful feeling to be so appreciated & welcomed by the same family that they've entrusted me to document so many important moments.

Shot at Bridgeport Art Center.

Heather & Chris - Backyard Wedding, Heber City, Utah

Big fans of these two. Happy to call them friends & was honored to capture their big day. Their Oregon coast engagement session was pretty amazing & so was their laid back, backyard wedding in Heber City, Utah. So much fun.

Michelle & Michael - Wedding - Lincoln Park, Chicago, IL

From engagement session to wedding, these two were a joy to get to know.  Shot in Chicago, IL at Hotel Lincoln, St. Michael, and A New Leaf.  Always great working with Naturally Yours Events.
