Laura & Josh’s special day all took place in Chicago’s Gold Coast neighborhood. They got ready at Tremont Hotel just a block from the Magnificent Mile where they did a first look in the courtyard at the iconic Fourth Presbyterian Church right on Michigan Avenue. After a short exchange of handwritten letters, we headed to Kinzie Street Bridge and North Ave Beach for our photo safari. We then headed back to Washington Square Park for a gorgeous outdoor ceremony. While the day started off very windy, we are certainly thankful for such beautiful sunny weather that provided for great photos during the ceremony. The reception was just a short walk across the street to the Newberry Library, one of our favorite Chicago downtown venues.

Some cool & fun details… Laura & Josh took advantage of their venue and incorporated some library theme details. They had books as part of table centerpieces and library cards as escort cards next to index card drawers. They even had an antique typewriter. Guests were treated to appetizer stations based on Chicago neighborhoods (Greektown, Pilsen, Taylor Street). See more details on our See more highlights on our FB Page!

Congratulations Laura & Josh! We’re very honored that you chose us to record your important memories. And it makes it even more worth while doing it for such wonderful people. – LOP

Kim & Dan are so much fun to shoot. It’s mainly because of their care-free and fun attitude on top of the chemistry they have for one another. Despite the chilly morning, their photos came out “effortless”. And our timing with the sun’s angle gave us lots of golden light to play with. We love how these photos turned out. We can hardly wait for their wedding this summer! Can anyone guess where their reception will be held?

When we’re lucky, we experience that “connection” with our clients and their families. We get to see them again in the future and see how their families expand. This is one of those families and we’re so grateful to get to see them again.

This day we celebrate Lauren and Vince’s wedding. The girls got ready at Waldorf Astoria, an adored Gold Coast luxury hotel. The guys put their finishing touches at the ceremony site, The Shrine of Our Lady of Pompeii in Chicago’s Little Italy neighborhood.

As photographers, we were treated to something unique as Lauren & Vince opted for an old Italian tradition of walking into church together, symbolizing the journey of marriage. All their guests witnessed their “first look” just outside the church with a short opening ceremony, followed by a procession of their entire wedding into church.

All the excitement of their friends and family left us with little time for photos but we managed to make 2 stops, Kinzie Street Bridge and the Lily Pond in Lincoln Park. Although short on time, the lighting at the Lily Pond gave us enough “photo magic” to pull off a couple of great images.

Lauren & Vince, thank you for having us at your wedding, giving us a chance to see everyone again and documenting all your precious events including your proposal! Congratulations!

We were contacted by this lovely couple in search of “true photojournalist candid” coverage. These terms are used by so many which then can be defined in many ways. It really all comes down to looking at a photographer’s full wedding coverage, not just the highlights, and determining if that’s what you are looking for. Definitions and marketing presentations will never achieve the same understanding as viewing a full gallery.

Our photo coverage began late, starting at the ceremony at St. Hyacinth Basilica, one of the most well-lit and magnificent churches in Chicago. We headed downtown to Kinzie Bridge which followed by the reception at Belvedere Events & Banquets in Elk Grove Village. They were certainly a fun wedding party which made for some great laughs and great pictures during the shoot.

Joanne & Joe did an amazing job with their decor as you can see. They’ve transformed Belvedere Banquets into something magical and marvelous which “wowed” the guests as they walked in.

Congratulations Joanne & Joe and thank you for having me tag along!

Jen & Mike + LOP = a perfect match! They love photos and they planned the day around photos. Not to sound selfish but in this case, I think it’s OK! A fun wedding party, perfect weather and well thought out timeline helped us deliver some great images.

The day started at the Westin Chicago River North downtown followed by an emotional first look on the Dearborn bridge. We then hopped on a trolley and headed to some stops at Kinzie St Bridge, Fulton Market, and Olive Park.

The combination of details for their venue was a perfect harmony which complemented the many urban spots for photos. Some cool details… they had a very unique escort card presentation, very urban and creative. Check out the photos on our FB page. Their guests were also treated to a Canadian late night snack, Poutine, representing Mike’s side of the family.

Thanks Jen & Mike for having us document your day!

We have to say thanks to the all star team of vendors that contributed to this great day.

Bride & Groom Comments:

Mike and I are elated with our wedding pictures from LOP! Tony and Michelle somehow made us very ordinary people look extraordinary – no small feat! Our friends and family can’t stop talking about how amazing our pictures look. And we are in awe at the plethora of intimate moments captured unbeknownst to us and many guests which speaks to how unobtrusively they work.

In general, LOP has been so easy and professional to work with throughout the whole process, booking to e-pics through receipt of final wedding pictures. We loved their flexibility, laid-back manner, sense of humor and spontaneity (pictures by the green river due to St. Patty’s Day and under the Kinzie bridge). Their artistic point of view felt fresh, original and personal to our wedding. We truly feel they create magic!!

To sum up, we were thrilled with our LOP experience, they delivered beyond our expectations and we would highly recommend them to anyone!
