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.

Healthy Lifestyle Weight loss Update and a Cheers to 2016

Written by , Posted in personal

weight loss food photography chicago studio finch diet vegetables vsco-1

So here we are, 13 months into our breakup with sugar. (Don’t worry, we are sweet enough- haha) Today marks our 13th month without sugar. It’s been an express train to the healthy lifestyle, weight loss bandwagon, which is awesome.

The snippet above is a bit of the colorful variety to the foods we do eat- beans, veggies, cheese, vinegar, farm-to-table meat, and cage-free eggs. I’m a huge fan of Kale- kale chips- they are pretty amazing.

I think the biggest key to our success so far (besides the whole no-sugar + no-carbs stampede) has been our morning protein shakes. I’m super grateful for Jason’s obsession with our blender and figuring out what other veggies he can jam pack into our mornings with protein powder.

To date I am down 63 pounds since the beginning of my diet. Yay to being 2/3’s of the way there! Another 32 pounds to go.

After Jason ran far away from Soda…
and potatoes..
and bread…
and rice…
and any other gluten/sugar/starchy carbs,
he is down 50.8 pounds over the past 13 months.  So woohoo! Here’s to 2016 and progress. 😀 Time up our attendance at the gym for some healthy lifestyle goodness.

And just some notes from the past year-

A bit more on our lifestyle change which we somewhat modified from the book “The Four Hour Body”  –

Things we avoid:

  • Sugar – it was a brutal breakup, but had to be done, we were addicted and just doing this alone we noticed a huge difference.
  • Carbs/Bread – we were/are both carb addicts. “Carboholics” I like to call it.
  • Diet Soda – this was the hardest thing for Jason to give up by far.

Things we love:

  • Bacon – nuf said
  • Cauliflower crust pizza – this really helps satisfy a craving and after being off bread it tasted amazing. Jason figured out how to get the ‘crust’ just right without having to add any breadcrumbs.
  • Not counting calories – our new lifestyle is a qualitative one and not a quantitative one. Meaning we don’t count calories, we just only eat certain types of healthy foods.
  • Healthy leafy greens – we eat a TON of vegetables everyday and if you have a cheap vegetable market, like Stanley’s, in Chicago, you can’t beat it. There’s not substitute for fresh veggies.
  • Beans – there’s so much you can do a with beans! Beans are our best friends! Also, the Black Bean Cakes on the weekends at the Flying Saucer in Chicago make you feel like you’re cheating.
  • Water – think you’re hungry, you’re probably just thirsty. Jason tells himself this on the daily.
  • Kale – here’s a recipe for an amazing salad from our friend Tasha that we can’t get enough.
  • La Croix – this really helps satisfy any cravings for soda.

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. 🙂
