Lacuna Artist Loft Wedding with Jamila and Andrei in Chicago

Written by , Posted in Wedding

It was such a joy to photograph Jamila and Andrei’s Lacuna Artist Loft wedding

The best room to have your portraits taken ever!

Jamila!!  You might recognize her- she was the awesome makeup artist who did Danley’s makeup when she got married a few years ago. Now it’s Jamila’s turn, and she had to get her own makeup artist. No one actually believed that she was going to hire a makeup artist- but! photos are proof, indeed she did. Andrei and Jamila picked Lacuna Artist Loft Wedding venue because Hebru used to use it as his main artist space.  I’ve known Hebru and his work for years thanks to my old roommate Niki. He does pretty amazing stuff- check out his website!

Anyway, it ended up raining on Jamila and Andrei’s wedding day, like a crazy rain. Thankfully, it only lasted for about 30 minutes, so everyone was still able to enjoy the amazing rooftop wedding celebration at Lacuna Artist Loft’s roof- filled with a view of the Chicago skyline.

The Chicago Library is all fuzzy in the background behind the rain drops.  Okay- so maybe it rained more than 30 minutes… but thankfully it was all gone by the time the cocktail hour was over.

We all smooshed in a cab together on the way to Jamila’s Lacuna Artist Loft Wedding. I like cab smooshing photos 🙂

Chicago Bridgeport Art Center Skyline Loft Wedding- Jenna and Jim

Written by , Posted in Wedding

There is so much fun amazingness to show for Jenna and Jim’s Chicago Wedding that I can’t even handle it! Ok, so here it goes…

Chicago Wedding Photographer Bridgeport Art Gallery Wedding Photography Studio Finch Best_0001

Jenna and Jim planned their wedding from afar- having a long distance relationship, this was no sweat for them.  We were lucky enough to have the opportunity to photograph their engagement session in New York City’s Gramercy Park last summer. (No fence jumping needed) Since living and working on the East Coast, Jenna and Jim moved to Germany together to follow Jim’s career in the Air Force. Which I say is pretty perfect, since Jenna’s dream would be to travel to unique and amazing places all over the world- what better than marrying a pilot?

They decided to have their wedding at Chicago’s Bridgeport Art Center Skyline Loft wedding, which was large enough to house all of their amazing family and friends. Also, just as important- it is large enough to hold a late night pasty food truck. Talk about awesome.  Before their cocktail hour and reception, they got married at the beautiful Holy Family Catholic Church on Roosevelt and spent some time going around the city with their decked out navy blue wedding party.

Oh! And check out Jenna and Jim’s decor choices!  They had friends trade place cards with Polaroid photos of the guests. Also, a huge thank you to Liven it Up Events for making the schedule and decor flow as smooth as possible. <3

We took photos on the football field at St. Ignatius (which is right next to Holy Family Catholic Church). The field is named after Jim’s Uncle, who was a proud Wolfpack coach in his prime.Chicago Wedding Photographer Bridgeport Art Gallery Wedding Photography Studio Finch Best_0021 Chicago Wedding Photographer Bridgeport Art Gallery Wedding Photography Studio Finch Best_0022 Chicago Wedding Photographer Bridgeport Art Gallery Wedding Photography Studio Finch Best_0023 Chicago Wedding Photographer Bridgeport Art Gallery Wedding Photography Studio Finch Best_0024 Chicago Wedding Photographer Bridgeport Art Gallery Wedding Photography Studio Finch Best_0025 Chicago Wedding Photographer Bridgeport Art Gallery Wedding Photography Studio Finch Best_0026 Chicago Wedding Photographer Bridgeport Art Gallery Wedding Photography Studio Finch Best_0027 Chicago Wedding Photographer Bridgeport Art Gallery Wedding Photography Studio Finch Best_0028 Chicago Wedding Photographer Bridgeport Art Gallery Wedding Photography Studio Finch Best_0029 Chicago Wedding Photographer Bridgeport Art Gallery Wedding Photography Studio Finch Best_0030 Chicago Wedding Photographer Bridgeport Art Gallery Wedding Photography Studio Finch Best_0031 Chicago Wedding Photographer Bridgeport Art Gallery Wedding Photography Studio Finch Best_0032 Chicago Wedding Photographer Bridgeport Art Gallery Wedding Photography Studio Finch Best_0033 Chicago Wedding Photographer Bridgeport Art Gallery Wedding Photography Studio Finch Best_0034 Chicago Wedding Photographer Bridgeport Art Gallery Wedding Photography Studio Finch Best_0035 Chicago Wedding Photographer Bridgeport Art Gallery Wedding Photography Studio Finch Best_0036 Chicago Wedding Photographer Bridgeport Art Gallery Wedding Photography Studio Finch Best_0037 Chicago Wedding Photographer Bridgeport Art Gallery Wedding Photography Studio Finch Best_0038 Chicago Wedding Photographer Bridgeport Art Gallery Wedding Photography Studio Finch Best_0039 Chicago Wedding Photographer Bridgeport Art Gallery Wedding Photography Studio Finch Best_0040 Chicago Wedding Photographer Bridgeport Art Gallery Wedding Photography Studio Finch Best_0041

A Chicago Lincoln Park Engagement Photography Session with Cheri and Jesus

Written by , Posted in Engagement

 

Studio Finch Chicago Lincoln Park Engagement Wedding Photography_0001

We met Cherita and Zeus initially a few weeks ago and they wanted to get their Chicago Lincoln Park Engagement Photography session finished straight away so that they can make their save the dates.  I am so happy the weather cooperated with amazing vibrant ombré hues of a sunset.

Before heading around town, we met them at Atomix Cafe, in Ukrainian Village for a few shots at a coffee shop, astronaut mural included. Thank you Atomix for letting us take a few photos at your awesome coffee shop space.
Cherita and Jesus’ wedding is going to be AMAZING! A blend of Mexican and Indian cultures, from henna to a mariachi band.  I cannot wait for their festivities and to see which family traditions they will put together.  Eeek! Okay, onto the ombré hued amazingness.

A Chicago Engagement Photography Session with Tracey and Chris

Written by , Posted in Engagement

 

Chicago Engagement Wedding Photography_0023

Tracey and Chris are awesome.  We got to essentially just roam around Pilsen with them for the Chicago engagement photography session, joking about cheese and other bits of silly-ness for the first half of their session.
I can’t wait for their wedding! Their city affair is going to be held at the beautifully historic Hard Rock Hotel in downtown Chicago later this fall. Fitting? Yes. Tracey and Chris got engaged in Las Vegas as he swept her off of her feet and they stayed at the Hard Rock Hotel in Vegas.
Now, on to the engagement session. Might I add- Tracey, your hair is AMAZING. That is all. <3
