Chicago Documentary Wedding Photography Okrfoto Historic Pullman Engagement Pictures

No comments:
I spent Sunday evening photographing Brent Lewis' engagement session in Historic Pullman and fell madly in love with that South Side neighborhood. I completely understand why he and Jasmine cherish that neighborhood: from the gorgeous architecture to the incredibly kind neighbors (everyone we came across said hello with a smile -- a total rarity in the city), Pullman has charm for days and was the perfect backdrop for Brent and Jasmine's love story.

This is just a sneak peek -- more to come soon!

After passing very strict portfolio reviews and being recommended by a few of my kind colleagues and amazing clients, I have been accepted into the Wedding Photojournalist Association as well as the International Society of Professional Wedding Photographers!!!

Chicago Documentary Wedding Photography Swooned: Published Work

No comments:
This year has presented me with some pretty incredible opportunities to work on creative editorial shoots, giving me a chance to not only work with some amazingly talented women but also giving me a chance to make fun work that stretches me as a photographer.

This shoot at Antique Taco (one of my favorite restaurants in Chicago where I often take clients out for lunch or dinner catch up and wedding consults) could not have been possible without an incredible team of vendors: Mignonette Bridal designed the gorgeous custom made dress (that hint of pink underneath, oh my god!), Anticipation Events helped with styling, Asrai Garden designed the table centerpiece and jaw dropping bouquet while the Nika Vaughn, Bridal Artists styled our models hair and created the floral crown, Megan of Chicago Avenue Salon handled makeup, Virtu Chicago provided the amazing bling and shawl, and Fox and Hound Paperie made the adorable popcorn menu bags along with the gorgeous place cards and invitation suite.

Big love to Swooned for featuring this vibrant, culturally inspired shoot we all worked so hard on and had so much fun bringing to life!
