New Wedding Photography Section

Last week I updated my website to include a new wedding section, with over a hundred new photos of brides and grooms tying the knot.

The weddings I had the privilege to witness over the summer covered a range of emotions and locations. There were great moments and particularly memorable were Pete & Mike’s Lake Michigan reception and this moment below with Bob & Louis right after their ceremony.

The blazing sunlight shining through the stained glass windows of the church as well as the late afternoon sun skimming off of the gentle swells of Lake Michigan helped to make for a beautiful set of images showcasing their momentous day.

Chicago Gay Wedding Photographer: 40-couples, gay, lesbian and straight couples unite

Yesterday, 40 couples — gay, lesbian and straight — were married in a group wedding ceremony at Unity in Chicago and I was lucky enough to be in attendance. Here’s a selection of photos from yesterday’s event marking the beginnings of gay marriage across Illinois. Congratulations to all the newly weds!

Using the available light in a space is always my first preference because it leads to pleasing natural looking candid images that document the wedding.

Chicago Gay Wedding Photographer: Shelly & Sarah

Amazing news this week… in case you missed it, three states passed gay and lesbian marriage equality and one state voted down a law that would define marriage as between a man and a woman. I guess we’ll be having more beautiful same sex weddings like the one I recently captured below. All the best Sara and Shelly!
