Room 1520 Wedding | Chicago

Chelsea and Ori embrace under an umbrella as they're surrounded by a rainbow on the rooftop during their Room 1520 wedding in Chicago

I was recently in the windy city to help my friend and Chicago Wedding Photographer Travis Haughton document C and O’s Room 1520 wedding just west of Downtown. It’s definitely one of my favorite venues in Chicago like Bridgeport. I started the day with the guys at the Raffaello Hotel before we headed up to the fantastic rooftop for their first look. C looked absolutely stunning in what was possibly my favorite dress of the year and O had a huge smile on his face when he saw her. After a few… Read More »

Cheesman Park Wedding | Sara & Ryan

The couple walk together in the Cheesman Park pavillion after their fall wedding in Denver

Last weekend I didn’t have to travel far for Sara and Ryan’s Cheesman Park Wedding. It was refreshing to walk over to the Westin where the ladies got ready while Travis drove over to their condo to start with the guys. Sara was mostly done with hair and makeup when I arrived so she was able to relax while her family got ready. The weather was a touch chilly but there wasn’t a cloud in the sky by the time the ceremony started under the pavilion at Cheesman Park. They… Read More »

Chicago Loft Wedding | David & Emmet

Chicago Loft Wedding first dance

Earlier this summer I traveled to the Windy City for David and Emmet’s Chicago Loft Wedding at the Bridgeport Art Center’s Skyline Loft. Working alongside Chicago Wedding Photographer Travis, we’ve photographed several of the loft venues in the city and Bridgeport is among our favorite. Typically we start separately but since David and Emmet got dressed together it was a team effort from the start. The room was fool of energy as their sisters joined them to help put the finishing touches on their looks and celebrate with a bottle… Read More »

Fort Collins Wedding | Courtney and Noah

Last Saturday I was fortunate enough to photograph Courtney and Noah’s Fort Collins wedding. From the moment that I met with them last fall I knew that it would be a great day because they each appreciated photography so much and provided me the trust that I need to make great pictures. The energy was high from the moment that I walked into the room with Courtney and her “Brosmaids” as they listened to Janet Jackson’s greatest hits on blast while dancing non-stop, only stopping for the obligatory hair and… Read More »
