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

Who doesn’t like an icy beach! Lori & Colm’s engagement session was postponed about 4 times because of the so called polar vortex but we finally managed to land a sunny warm winter weekend! The left over ice added a spectacular backdrop which made their photos much more unique. It was an adventure getting to that spot, falling into several ice/sand pits that looked stable at the time, but it was well worth the trouble. We ended the shoot in Lincoln Park. It was important to get a skyline shot to create some photo contrast to their wedding day which will be in St Charles. Looking forward to seeing you guys again in August! Thanks for toughing out the icy engagement session!

Lauren & Ronnie had a small wedding party and smaller than average guest count. But everything about their wedding felt big! And that’s mainly due to the tight-knit family and friends that celebrated with them on their big day.

The day started off wet and rainy but not in spirit. There was nothing but smiles and tears of joy as Lauren & Ronnie got ready at JW Chicago Marriott as they stared down at a rainy downtown street. Lauren left with an umbrella, and arrived at church in a ray of sunshine. The ceremony took place at Our Lady of Mount Carmel Church in Chicago’s Wrigleyville neighborhood. We then headed off on a photo safari to North Ave Beach, Chicago Board of Trade, and Fulton Market. The much anticipated reception took place at Room 1520, a very cool urban venue in the Fulton Market neighborhood.

A big congrats to Lauren & Ronnie for such an awesome day! From the engagement session to the wedding day, you guys are awesome to be around and we will miss not having your wedding to look forward to anymore. But we look forward to seeing your family grow in the future. Thanks for having us! BTW, check out their awesome Engagement Session.

Some vendors worth mentioning… Blu Couture Films was a pleasure to work with and they are uber talented. Please check them out! We’ve shot hundreds of weddings by now and this is the first time that I can truly say that “this band rocks”. If you’re looking for a band, check out The Empty Pockets. Best band we’ve ever heard at a wedding!
