Becky and Zack’s Sunrise Chicago Engagement Session

Written by , Posted in Engagement

Meet Becky and Zack. They were willing to wake up for a sunrise Chicago engagement session with us.  Crazy troopers, I tell you.

My eyeballs feel like burning needles when I wake up this early, but every time I get to witness the sunrise, I’m grateful for actually waking up.  It’s like you have the whole city to yourself for a sunrise Chicago engagement session.

Not to mention- Becky’s laugh is contagious.Chicago engagement photographer sunrise beach lifestyle photos wedding cityview lofts_0006These two lovelies are having their wedding festivities at the Cityview Loft here in Chicago. Though we wont be waking up early like for the sunrise Chicago engagement session, it’ll be amazing light no matter what at that venue. 🙂

We stopped by the first apartment, which happens to be right down the street from where they currently live.  And I was Jones-ing for some symmetry. 🙂 These two are so cool.  Chicago engagement photographer sunrise beach lifestyle photos wedding cityview lofts_0017

Chicago Cafe Brauer Wedding with Erica and John

Written by , Posted in Wedding

Eeek! I’m so excited to show you guys Erica and John’s Cafe Brauer wedding!

 

It was our first wedding of the 2016 season. We couldn’t have started our Chicago wedding photography year with a nicer couple for their Cafe Brauer wedding. Erica and John were/are awesome! We ventured were outside in March for their photos and they were such troopers to brave the chilly weather right on Lake Michigan.  I’m glad that the bridesmaids had long dresses on – thanks Jenny Yoo! We were all filled with warm thoughts, good vibes, and love, which helped keep us all warm.

Erica and John had their wedding festivities at the historic Cafe Brauer in Lincoln Park. It is an amazingly beautiful space made by Perkins & Hamilton in a Prairie Style architecture. It is one of our favorite spots in the Chicago to photography.

Erica’s bouquet, the bridesmaid’s dresses, and all of the other details mimicked the lavender and prairie green in Cafe Brauer Wedding’s space. We started the day off at Hotel Lincoln– which is conveniently close, FILLED with Mid Century Modern furniture and amazing antiques, which are all locally sourced.  Anything mid-century modern and vintage warms my heart. We also took a trip to the roof to Hotel Lincoln’s – The J. Parker.

Checkout the photos from their big day below.

ArTango Wedding in Chicago with Voni and Clivens

Written by , Posted in Wedding

Two things we love: vivid colorful street art in Chicago and our lovely couples in front of it

ArTango Chicago Wedding Photographer Editorial Photography Studio Finch Modern_0001

So, this morning Jason and I were talking about how cold it is and how awesome it was that a year ago, Voni and Clivens braved the very brisk January weather to do a Chicago Engagement session in the winter with us.  Seriously you guys- we talk about you all of the time. So I found it fitting to blog about their ArTango Wedding in Chicago today.

Voni and Clivens met online, but Clivens likes to tell people that they met at a bar. Haha, which is technically true- also, in that case- Jason and I met at a coffee shop diner. 🙂

Voni and Clivens both moved from their home states to Chicago. I’m from Michigan, so I know how that goes. But yes, on to their wedding!

They both got ready at The James Hotel- Clivens actually got ready in the library room, which I didn’t know existed- and that was a pretty awesome spacious location option for the guys to get ready.

Where is this mural? It’s at a fast food parking lot on the way to their ArTango Wedding.  I asked them if we could stop here because I was a bit smitten by it.
