I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again – these micro-weddings were something special. I know it’s not a popular opinion, especially for those couples that had to postpone their weddings in 2020 due to the pandemic, but every single couple that either decided to move forward with a small wedding or had a […]

Lincoln Park Nature Boardwalk Wedding | Mallory + Matthew’s Micro Wedding

2020 was anything but ordinary. While most of our couples postponed their wedding celebrations to 2021 and 2022, there were still some couples that  found a safe, socially distant way to get married during the pandemic, and saved the big party for next year. Well ‘next year’ is finally here – we’re celebrating Alyssa + […]

Micro Wedding in Trout Valley | Alyssa + Chris

Catching up on blogs from last summer… this one was in the heart of the pandemic! Stacy + Pete, like many of us during lock down, needed to get out of their place for some fresh air often – which landed them in the LA Fitness parking lot next to their building. They spent many […]

Stacy and Pete’s Life in the Pandemic Session

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 […]
