A Beachside Lake Michigan Wedding Photography – Tammy and Chris

Written by , Posted in Wedding

Lake Michigan Wedding Love Kiss Studio FinchBeing a Michigan native, when Tammy inquired with us that she was having her wedding on Lake Michigan and getting ready at her parent’s blueberry farm, I immediately gushed for joy.
Tammy and Chris live in Chicago, so we opted for the city (Chris’ motorcycle and all) for the engagement session, and basked in the beautiful nature surrounding us for their wedding photography in Michigan. Seriously. It was a gorgeously sunny day for Michigan wedding photography. From jars of blueberry jam to colorful lake-shore sunsets and beach-side fire pits, it couldn’t have been anymore perfect of a wedding day for Tammy and Chris.

River East Art Center Wedding Studio Finch
Now for the second day of Maaria and Anil’s festive River East Art Center Wedding. With all of their guests in town, their bash went on- starting with all of the lovely ladies getting ready at a condo nearby downtown. The guys in Maaria’s family decided it best to camp out outside on the balcony…

Chicago Engagement Photography Session- Mary Beth and Sam

Written by , Posted in Engagement

Chicago Engagement Garden Love Studio Finch

 

Sam is an amazing gardener/painter/anything vegetables. We weren’t surprised how awesome their Chicago engagement photography session turned out. They’re actually sitting at the entrance to their garden, so incredibly lush and green. The garden hose adds a nice touch too. Mary Beth and Sam are both artists actually, Mary Beth worked at The Chicago Art institute, and Sam runs a creative space/ is an incredible painter- once again I have to find his website.
Mary Beth and Sam are got married at Lincoln Park, in front of the Lincoln Statue and held their amazing reception at Maxim’s.

Update: Sam’s website! www.samuelpolce.com

Chicago Wedding Photography – Art Institute at the Modern Wing

Written by , Posted in Wedding

2013-02-11_0000

Jes and Ed’s Chicago Art Institute Wedding was a whirlwind of wonderful- filled with simple clean, white modern design- and touches of blue. Which is why we decided to start off the post of you two in front of Georgia O’keeffe’s Sky Above Clouds. Quite fitting colors and emotion indeed.

The day started off at Hotel Sax, with an amazing view of the Marina Towers. Their ceremony was at the beautiful Holy Family Church, and then we ran around town for a couple of hours eating hot dogs and venturing around at different photo op locations before ending up at the  Terzo Piano at the Modern Wing for the reception. 🙂

Jes’ garter was made by pieces of other family member’s weddings just for her, I thought it was quite sweet.

In case you ever wondered where Jes gets her good looks from- we introduce, her mom- vavavoom! 2013-02-11_0007
