Gail and Brian's Hotel InterContinental Bash

Last month, Gail, Brian and their families threw one stellar wedding! We started the day in the two story presidential suite at the very top of the Hotel InterContinental. With sweeping 180 degree views downtown Chicago, its one of the most majestic hotel rooms in city. After meeting for the 1st time in the Hall of Lions, we took the happy couple over to the newly renovated Wrigley Building to make a few pictures. Then it was off to La Madonna della Strada at Gail's alma mater, Loyola. The lovely ceremony filled was with a few giggles and tears. But as the the rear doors opened onto the crystal clear lake and even clearer sky, the tears dried and the giggles turned to laughter. None of us can remember a time when the Renaissance Room looked better. Under the meticulous hand of Anthony Gowder and his team, the room was breathtaking. Front of House kept the dance floor moving and Stephanie Gowder made sure the night went off without a hitch. The InterContinental team was there to make sure that every guests needs were met. It truly was a night to remember! Thanks guys for letting us be part of your amazing day!

Rushna and Kevin's JW Marriott Wedding

Rashna and Kevin's wedding day was one of those early fall days when the sky is crystal clear, the air is still warm, and the nights are cool. They saw each other in the lobby of the JW Marriott before we went out to take some pictures around town. Back at the hotel, the grand ballroom was beautifully decorated by Shaadi Creations under the artful eye of Nisar Naimi. After a lovely ceremony, Rushna and Kevin joined their guests in an evening filled with joy and merriment. Congrats guys!

Kim & Joe's Fall Engagement Shoot

We. Love. Fall. Maybe it's the pumpkin spice latte's or that we can bring layers back to our wardrobe. Add in the way the light turns yellow with the color of the leaves and it's just an unbeatable time of the year for a photographer. Here are some of our favorite images from an engagement session with Kim and Joe. A little trot from Lincoln Park to North Ave yielded some lovely photographs of the season and at the very end the session we swung by Beaumont's where this wonderful couple met for the first time 3 years ago. What a wonderful way to spend an afternoon!
