Yesterday I had the amazing opportunity to be in on something really special. I got a call on friday afternoon with the hopes I can help – John was proposing to his girlfriend, Drew – and he was hoping to capture it. The plan was for her to think she was attending a wedding at the Chicago Botanic Gardens. We talked about meeting in the English Walled garden….They showed up “looking for the wedding” and when John felt right, he pulled her close, got down on a knee and the rest was history! Drew was definitely surprised, and I was so honored to have been a part of this fantastic surprise! Congratulations you two, wishing you a lifetime of happiness!
Jodi and Erik are getting married this april – so we took engagement photos in the loop before it gets too cold. Thanks for being such great sports and ducking into all those wierd alleyways! Hope you enjoy the outcome!
I visited a friend of mine last summer at his job at Starbucks, and happened to be introduced to Callie that day. A little over a year later, we meet again, this time at her wedding! It was a dreary day, but at least the rain cooperated and let Callie and Adam have a beautiful outdoor ceremony at Silver Lake Country Club in Orland Park. Adam is an active marine, so they had a sword ceremony, which was pretty neat! I wasn’t sure what was going to happen exactly, and was kind of nervous that I was going to be shooting in the wrong place at the wrong time and get stabbed….but I survived. This was a wonderful night, filled with much love. Thanks Callie and Adam for the opportunity – I wish you all the best! Congrats!
