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. 🙂

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.

The Rookery Wedding Chicago- Jane & John

Written by , Posted in Wedding

The Rookery was the perfect location for their around the world bash.

Jane and John planned their wedding all of the way from Australia, across the globe. Jane is originally from Chicagoland, and John is from Ireland. Which, made it pretty perfect to have the most ultimate wedding cake EVER.  Ultimate? Yes.  Just scroll down and you will see the amazingness below. Well, ok- I’ll tell you, Jane’s mom ordered a Globe Shaped wedding cake.  Yes! Imagine a cake shaped like the world.  It had the Bean on top, and fondant designed homes and buildings near and dear to Jane and John’s hearts. Gah, it was amazing!  Along with all of the other details Jane planned for- giant wedding balloons, stopping by an Irish Pub on their wedding day for John, embroidering their wedding date onto her dress, and so much more.

Okay, you can see The Rookery Wedding for yourself. But- to start off, Jane got ready at her parent’s house. They also had their ceremony at Holy Family Chicago – my favorite Cathedral in Chicago, and we happily had the opportunity to photograph many weddings there this year.  Plus, everyone there is super nice, and I’m a fan of super nice. 🙂

The Rookery is such an amazing historical building. It was designed by Burnhan and Root in 1888, and the lobby was remodeled by Frank Lloyd Wright in 1905- which is all of the amazingness you can see in the photo below.

Spiaggia Chicago Wedding – Lily and John

Written by , Posted in Wedding

Lily and John wanted to have a destination wedding in Chicago.

Spiaggia Wedding Chicago Photographer Editorial Photography Studio Finch Modern_0001

Since it’s a main hub, it makes it easier for family to be able to attend. They decided that a Spiaggia Chicago Wedding overlooking Lake Michigan was the perfect venue for them and family to be able to enjoy delicious food and to later get their groove on.
When we met Lily and John, they were in the midst of planning their move to Hawaii- cargo loading and all of that craziness, as John was going to be stationed there after his homecoming.

John and Lily got ready together in their hotel room- which I loved. It was so zen and calming in the room. I thought it was pretty awesome that they are getting ready together, I mean- if you’re marrying your best friend, it’s only right to get to spend the whole day with them right? And not to mention, their view was pretty awesome as well.

They eloped before John was deployed, so they decided to have a family blessing instead of a traditional ceremony for their Spiaggia Chicago Wedding.  You’ll be able to see it in the photos as both John and Lily’s dad’s performed the family blessing together.  It was quite sweet. <3

Royal Melbourne Country Club Wedding in Long Grove with Angela and Eric

Written by , Posted in Wedding

Rolling Hills, green grass and flowers – yes please!

Royal Melbourne Chicago Wedding Photographer Long Grove Editorial Photography Studio Finch_0000

We met Angela + Eric through Anna + Eui-Young, our couple who had the epic bubble send off last year. They are all a tight knit group of friends who go way back. Angela and Eric wanted a Royal Melbourne wedding, in Long Grove, which was close to their family’s church. The awesome thing about having a country club wedding in the middle of the summer is that you know it will have amazing lush green grass and rolling hills, and flowers and Oh! You’ll just have to see the photos.
They got ready at Hampton Inn, which was perfect logistic wise in getting to the Church and Country Club. Speaking of logistics-Angela had their honeymoon in the Cook Islands!!! Which was a convenient stop over to see Disney Land while they were in California on their way over to the tropics. It was quite fitting that Eric gave Angela a Mickey & Minnie Mouse card for her to read before their first look. And yes! Onto their Royal Melbourne wedding.
