Romantic Wedding at its finest

I am happy to have been part of Nick and Lauren’s wedding.  It has been by far one of the most romantic weddings I’ve had the pleasure of photographing.  Not only are they extremely thoughtful, but they are one of the most wonderful couples.  And also, I was very happy to her family for bringing a cool car for us to use in photos.  I wish them the best of everything.

Surprise Proposals throughout Chicago

So, as promised in my last blog, here are some photos from a few surprise proposals I’ve had the pleasure of photographing all throughout Chicago.  The majority of couples use the most iconic Chicago backdrops as the location for this wonderful event.  Everything from the rink at the Peninsula and the rink at Wrigley Field, to the Cloud Gate, all these make for a wonderful site.  I can’t wait to see what locations I’ll be shooting in this year.  More photos to come.

Winter engagement photos in Chicago

 

As mentioned in my earlier blog, I love doing winter engagement and wedding photography.  And here are some more examples of this.  Not only do the couples get a very different background of Chicago, but also a great mysterious look that winter brings.  What I love the most is putting the ring in LOVE in snow rather than sand, which almost everyone does. In my next blog I’ll put just surprise proposals that I was more than happy to capture during lots of snow and cold.

Night-time engagement photography in Chicago

When I first spoke to Brittani about photographing their engagement, she wasn’t sure as to the locations she wanted, but it had to be night-time engagement photography in Chicago.  So, we hit the most known spots and some not so known, but thanks to this wonderful couple, Brittani and Vito, I learned of a new spot for night-time photography, and it happens to be one of my favorites. Only in Chicago, one can find new locations all the time. I will for sure use it in my next ventures.
