If a company is only as great as the people they serve, then we must be magic, because Liz and Scott are the sweetest, funniest, most loving people. We had a blast capturing their traditional, timeless, and elegant Chicago Wedding on April 21, 2018. They were wed at the beautiful St. Vincent DePaul Parish Church in Lincoln Park, took photos before the ceremony at Olive Park, and after the ceremony took a trolley to Lincoln Park Zoo for some more. Their reception was held at Salvatore's - a classic Italian restaurant known for hosting amazing parties! 

To Liz and Scott, may your marriage be as much fun as your wedding day, as bright as the both of your smiles, we know it will be filled with love (we got to witness that!) Cheers!

So you've gotten engaged, congratulations! With all the wedding planning, a sure way to slow down and enjoy the process is by scheduling an engagement session. You get to dress up (or down) and explore the city with your fiancé or fiancée. Let the stress fade while one of our photographers captures this awesome milestone behind the camera. 


Cassidy and William's engagement session at Garfield Park Conservatory is one of our all-time favorites. The soft sunlight created warm tones that matched their outfits perfectly. We're obsessed with the spring blooms, sweet cuddles, and hard belly laughs our photographer Kristin captured.

Becca and Brandon were wed at Saint Matthias Catholic Church on April 7, 2018. After roaming around the city, specifically in Lincoln Square, the couple celebrated their new marriage with a reception at DoubleTree North Shore at the Hilton Hotel. Becca wore a beautiful timeless gown and tied together her details with accents of dark purple in her bouquet, bridesmaids' dresses, and groomsmen's ties. 

A day full of love, laughter, and amazing details. Congratulations to the Newlyweds!

Cage and Aquarium happily attended the 10th Annual Chicago LGBTQ Wedding Expo on March 18, 2018. The event was hosted at Hotel Chicago.  Rainbow Wedding Network is a wedding show tailored for same-sex couples. The expo creates a welcoming environment full of allies and vendors to help plan the Big Day. Our DJs set the mood with tunes while we met some amazing couples in the midst of wedding planning. Several vendors auctioned off their services or gifts for the raffle, and one lucky couple won a FREE full wedding ceremony!
