Soroth & George's Wedding Weekend

We knew from the moment we met Soroth and George that they were going to throw an unforgettable wedding extravaganza. Soroth and George tied the knot, not once but twice a few weeks ago. The couple threw a Cambodian wedding on Friday night at the bride’s home. The evening was full of good food, music and laughs.

The next day Soroth and George met each other in Uptown, before heading to Millennium Park for some fun and romantic pictures. We then headed to Stan Mansion, a hidden gem located in Logan Square, for the ceremony and reception. 

We were honored to take part in Soroth and George’s weekend.

Sarah & Johnny

Sarah & Johnny tied the knot at the Tower Club in the Lyric Opera Building.  They were a great couple - willing to do anything for a great shot!  We had such a good time with them and their wedding party.  The couple love to travel - Johnny proposed while they were on a trip to Paris.  After the wedding, they headed to Hawaii to celebrate!

Elizabeth & DJ

Elizabeth & DJ were such a fun couple to work with!  They had their ceremony at St. James and their reception at the wonderful Peninsula Hotel.  The reception room was decorated beautifully - the flowers were done to perfection, the tablescapes looked great, and the Bradley Young Orchestra rocked the party all night!  Thanks you two!

Kim and Art

When you look up Classic and Elegant Chicago Wedding in the dictionary, you going to find Kim and Art's wedding. We knew that this couple was going to be awesome when we did their engagement pictures over the summer in Lincoln Park. On the wedding day, we started with Kim and Art in their suites at the Palmer House, then it was off around the city for some pictures. A picture perfect fall day in Chicago made this beautiful couple just shine! Then back to the Palmer house for a beautiful ceremony and reception in the historic Empire Room. We could not have asked for more! Thank you Kim and Art for letting us be apart of your wedding day!

Kristin Hassan Spring 2011 Collection

This September, our very own Nick Gerber was commissioned by rising midwest fashion design star Kristin Hassan to shoot her Spring 2011 collection. The concept for Kristin's brand is fun clothes for every woman, so we decided to go up to one of the late summer carnivals in Allegan, Michigan where we got some amazing stuff for her look book.  Fast forward to this tuesday - the opening of Chicago Fashion Week (yep, Chicago has one of those!) where her line hit the runway as the first show of Fashion Week. It was met with great acclaim and it was a real treat to see her work come full circle. Check out the pictures from the look book below, as well as an awesome behind the scenes shoot courtesy of Ben Mahoney Productions. Finally, head off to Kristin's website and be prepared to start seeing her line in boutiques all over Chicago.
