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…

Written by , Posted in Wedding

 

Indian Wedding Chicago Urban Studio Finch
Maaria and Anil wanted to incorporate both family traditions along with some new traditions of their own for their Chicago wedding photography. For the first day, they had a welcome dinner at Carnivale for all of their out of town guests, along with a family Hindu and Muslim wedding ceremony. Maaria and Anil live in San Fransisco, so the welcome dinner was quite fitting. Stay tuned tomorrow for their grand celebration at River East Art Center!Indian Wedding Chicago Urban Studio Finch Baby Chicago Wedding Mehndi Ceremony Chicago wedding Studio Finch Mehndi Ceremony Chicago wedding Studio Finch Mehndi Ceremony Chicago wedding Studio Finch Indian Wedding Chicago Urban Studio Finch Indian Wedding Chicago Urban Studio Finch Indian Wedding Chicago Urban Studio Finch Indian Wedding Chicago Urban Studio Finch Indian Wedding Chicago Urban Studio Finch Indian Wedding Chicago Urban Studio Finch Muslim Bride Chicago Urban Studio Finch Beautiful Muslim Bride Chicago Urban Studio Finch Carnivale Chicago Wedding Studio Finch Carnivale Chicago Wedding Studio Finch Carnivale Chicago Wedding Studio Finch Carnivale Chicago Wedding Studio Finch Carnivale Chicago Wedding Studio Finch Carnivale Chicago Wedding Studio Finch Carnivale Indian Muslim Chicago Wedding Studio Finch Carnivale Indian Muslim Chicago Wedding Studio Finch Carnivale Indian Muslim Chicago Wedding Studio Finch Carnivale Indian Muslim Chicago Wedding Studio Finch Carnivale Chicago Wedding Studio Finch Carnivale Chicago Wedding Studio Finch Colorful Drinks Carnivale Chicago Wedding Studio Finch Carnivale Chicago Wedding Studio Finch Carnivale Chicago Wedding Studio Finch

Elle and Tommy’s Detroit Belle Isle Casino Wedding

Written by , Posted in Wedding

Elle and Tommy were an absolute blast at their Detroit Belle Isle Casino Wedding, they got everyone up and dancing at the reception- with the help of the Larry Lee & the Back in the Day Band of course. 😉
Tommy, as a writer/actor extraordinaire, also provided with some of the most dashing groom smiles we’ve seen to date. Oh, speaking of Extraordinaire- did we mention that Elle is in a Marching Band?  They came along on the trolly after the ceremony.
Elle and Tommy had their ceremony at the Annunciation Greek Orthodox Cathedral, Tommy’s parents’ church, and is a beautiful open and light space. For the rest of the dancing festivities at Belle Isle, read on! <3

Chicago Engagement Photography – Tammy and Chris

Written by , Posted in Engagement

2013-04-01_141b At first, Chris wasn’t a fan of the idea of getting a photo taken for his Chicago engagement photography session, but he was on board when he found out he could bring his bike. Bikes+Grunge? We love. It’s the perfect ying and yang with Tammy’s cheery yellow outfit, and adorable doggy.  Plus, Tammy is a veterinarian (Charlie’s Vet actually!) so they had to bring their dog. 🙂
Tammy and Chris wanted to have their engagement session in Chicago, since it’ll be a nice offset with their Lake Michigan wedding near Tammy’s parent’s Blueberry Farm.

Clara and Jason’s Chicago Engagement Photography Session

Written by , Posted in Engagement

Chicago Lake Front Engagement Session Studio Finch

We had the opportunity to photography Clara and Jason’s Chicago engagement photography session just a week before their wedding, as they both moved to Seattle together (but separate as Clara’s bridesmaid put it) a bit after the graduated from NIU. Clara and Jason met in college at a Christian retreat soon after they started school. So with years of finals and college cafeteria food, their love blossomed. 🙂
On a side note, Clara’s dress? Anthropologie. And awesome.
