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

April showers did not apply this day. It was more of a beautiful late May day, perfect weather for Jessica & Joel’s big day! While the guys got ready at Joel’s place in River North, the girls got ready at the Westin Michigan Avenue Chicago with a great view of the Magnificent Mile. Taking advantage of great weather, the bride along with her family and bridesmaids, took a stroll from the hotel to Newberry Library where the ceremony and reception took place. While the walk wasn’t so long, it was a highlight of the day as we were greeted with smiles throughout the walk wishing the bride good luck. It was certainly a great way to build up anticipation. Jessica & Joel had a sweet first look on the Newberry steps and exchanged gifts. We then took advantage of the weather, taking a few photos around Newberry Library.

Some cool details…Since Jessica & Joel are avid traveler’s, the Newberry seemed to be a great fit for their wedding. Joel’s gifted custom shot glasses were put to good use to start the day. While you traditionally think of the “first look” as a bride & groom event, there was also a nice first look moment with her three brothers and father. They featured a book themed table naming convention. You can see more highlights on our FB Page.

Congratulations Jessica & Joel! Thank you for trusting LOP to capture your special day!

This wedding day was full of fun, mainly because of Kim & Dan’s fun personalities. They easily rubbed off on the entire bridal party, which filled the entire day with lots of laughs. Everyone got ready at the Westin Michigan Avenue Chicago with a spectacular view of Chicago’s Magnificent Mile. A lovely ceremony took place at St Chrysostom’s Episcopal Church in Chicago’s Gold Coast neighborhood. We headed to Lincoln Park for a few photos and continued the celebration at the famous Newberry Library, also in the Gold Coast neighborhood.

Some cool details… Kim & Dan are probably the perfect couple for Newberry. Just take a look a their engagement session here. They’ve complemented their venue well from the very beginning. Their engagement session featured some books as well as fun wedding party photos in front of the library. The table setting was complete with books and library index cards/drawer. The groom, brother, and FOG attempted to recreate an old photo. Although it wasn’t perfect, the photo will certainly become another classic. One of her close friends/bridesmaid sang beautifully at the ceremony. Finally, something super unique that we’ve never seen before… the groom’s ring is made of wood. You can see more highlights on our FB Page.

Congratulations Kim & Dan! The two of you are so addicting to shoot, from the engagement session to the end of the wedding day! Thank you for having LOP!!!

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!
