Lupe and Jordan get married, Chicago and west suburbs elopment photographer

I took on this beautiful elopment of sorts a few months back. Jordan and Lupe were, like most couples just trying to wed in this weird situation of a year. Sorrounded by their extended family and friends and practicing safety protocols they wed in a beautiful ceremony. Lupe looked insanely beautiful, I mean look at that dress! We then headed to this lovely park near for some more portraits. Thankfully it was near, since I guess with all of the nuptial chaos the groom forgot to add gas to his car. We walked over to this hill and I got to experience all of the love and admiration they share for one another. I hope their life is amazing together and that they get to see those images and remeber how not even 2020 could stop them for moving their lives and love forward.

E+C The Berkshire room Chicago surprise wedding

This last December, which now seems like ages ago due to the changes in Covid and our collective struggles and lives. I photographed this lovely surprise wedding for Emily + Clark. No one was aware that they would be a part of being present for the unifying ceremony of their lives. It was such a joyous congregation. With an incredible panel of tasty food. It was super low key and still you can tell how much love was in the room. The Berkshire room is a small space but man, is it beautiful. Im not aware of the history of the space but I look forward to visiting soon again, in the future.

You know those rad couples that are just completely doing their own thing, well Brooke and Bob are certainly that. I met them last fall and I’m so excited that they picked me to photograph one of the most important days of their lives. For their engagement shoot, we completely froze a little but I think it was so worth it, I’m so grateful for the little bit of sunshine that showed up for us. It was so fun to get to know them a little more and see how they interact and show their love for each other, I’m a sucker for love stories. I can’t wait to see them walking down the aisle.
