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

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

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

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

It feels a little odd to be posting pretty pictures of weddings given the current state of emergency, but I’m choosing to continue celebrating love and life. I hope at least one person finds these photos uplifting and a breath of fresh air amongst never-ending news reports and pleads for people to stay home/isolated. For […]

Alyssa + Tucker’s River Roast Wedding

Matt and Kelsie had Italian class together their sophomore year in college. It was a small class but they didn’t engage much directly. They were both out one night watching the Blackhawks with friends at Kincade’s in Lincoln Park, when they recognized each other from UW, started talking, and stayed connected from then on. Fast […]

Gallery 1028 Wedding | Kelsie + Matt

  Trent + Todd connected initially on Coffee Meets Bagel where they exchanged some messages. A couple weeks later, Trent spotted Todd from afar at a restaurant they both happened to be having brunch, which reignited the conversation to go on a date. They connected instantly over a couple beers on a fall Sunday afternoon […]

Ravenswood Event Center Wedding | Trent + Todd

When Alyssa first reached out about having us photograph her wedding – she sent along a photo of her and her fiance, Chris, dancing at their friends’ wedding in 2016, “…also, this is one of my favorite pictures of us of all time…taken by either you or your husband at Danielle and Jim’s wedding…” Reading […]

Alyssa + Chris Engagement in Trout Valley

Cari + Griffin are two dear friends of mine (if you follow me on Instagram @jilltiongcophoto – you might recognize these two faces from our ‘Supper Club’ where we try a new restaurant together every month). Being a part of their wedding day was so very special to us. We got to do what we […]

Emily + Ben are getting married out west, but live in Lincoln Park, so they wanted to capture their engagement session in this town they live in and love so much. We shot at the Lily Pond, just a few blocks from their apartment, and then went over to Fullerton Beach for some lake shots. […]
