Like most couples in 2020, Sarah + Butch were forced to postpone their big wedding reception and have a smaller, micro-wedding. The Gwen proved to be the perfect location for this, as their suite has an open air balcony for the ceremony, and guests were able to enjoy the wedding safely, outdoors, and with an […]

Chicago Micro-Wedding | Covid Friendly Outdoor Rooftop Wedding at The Gwen | Sarah + Butch

November 7th, 2020 was a special day for many. As Alyssa + Nick rounded the corner of City Hall to get married and meet me for some pre-ceremony photos, they exclaimed, “Biden just won!” It was a moment I’ll never forget – as we were in the heart of downtown Chicago, taking photos to celebrate […]

Chicago Elopement at City Hall | Getting Married in a Pandemic | Alyssa + Nick

To help explain how this engagement session went, let me quote Murphy at the end of the session… here’s the scene – we’re on North Ave. Beach taking the last few shots of the 2-hour session, when we see another couple taking their engagement photos nearby. I keep photographing Emily + Murphy when I hear […]

Emily + Murphy’s Chicago Engagement Session | Riverwalk and North Ave. Beach

Tayler + Luke. What can I say about them… they’re obviously gorgeous, SO much fun, and just kind people. They welcomed me into their home to photograph where they’ve been spending most of the pandemic… snuggled up on their cozy couch in their West Loop high rise condo, curled up in Tay’s favorite little reading […]

At-Home Engagement Session in the West Loop, Chicago | Taylor + Luke

Covid-19 really made 2020 interesting for those trying to get married. Post-poned weddings, micro-weddings, elopements, cancellations… these are just a few of the challenges that were thrown at 2020 couples. But, Melissa + Brad made the best of a difficult situation (okay, maybe many), and came out looking and feeling fabulous on the day of. […]

Micro-Wedding at Hotel Zachary, Chicago | Melissa + Brad

Karen + Dan put their total trust in letting me choose the location for their engagement session. They didn’t want any of the typical spots around Chicago, and wanted their session to feel unique and true to them. I knew exactly where to take them, as I had been eyeing these spots for years around […]

Donna + Ricky were supposed to get married at Lacuna Lofts last November but, like most 2020 couples trying to get married, had to push their big wedding to 2021. On top of the wedding juggling they were already doing, they last minute decided to have a micro-wedding at one of their favorite local patios, […]

Covid-19 Wedding at Reclaimed Bar| Donna + Ricky

Austin + Brett were all set to get married at The Hive on Hubbard before Covid-19 happened. Plans changed, chaos ensued (for the entire world) – but they didn’t skip a beat. Their plans quickly changed and they adapted as gracefully as ever. Their Hive on Hubbard wedding transformed into a beautiful Logan Square backyard […]

Logan Square Backyard Chicago Wedding | Austin + Brett’s Mini Wedding

2020 has brought its fair share of hardships. From bush fires in Australia, to Covid-19, to murder hornets, to social injustices (I think it’s important to note here that we fully support the Black Lives Matter movement and encourage everyone to continue to listen and learn with us) — it has been hard to stay […]

We were lucky enough to get this Engagement Session in right before the shelter in place started… and it was the perfect session to hop around to some fun Logan Square spots. Austin + Brett’s favorite, Hopewell Brewing, was the starting place with their pup, Kaiju, before heading to Logan Hardware for some games, and […]
