Friends, family and Erik’s congregation came together to celebrate their summer nuptials inside the Logan Square church.
As dusk fell upon the Redfield Estate in Glenview, Illinois, Arlyn & China met beneath a Gazebo on the grounds of the historic landmark. After their triumphant exit from their ceremony, the couple and their guests share cocktails outside the 1856 Kennicott House before retiring inside for their reception. Following dinner, the newly weds shared their first dance in the estate’s outdoor pavilion.
Frank & Brock’s ceremony affected me like no other, it was the last gay wedding I attended before my own. Given the future that faced me only weeks later, seeing the moments of the evening unfold were emotional to say the least, as I saw several parallels between my relationship and theirs. The Chicago couple exchanged their vows before family and friends at the Farmhouse, in Evanston, which was also the venue for the reception that followed.
Illinois same-sex wedding photographer: Greg & Mike’s sunset wedding at Navy Pier was one of the more scenic weddings I have captured in some time. The architecture of the pier and the backdrop of the city’s skyline framed the celebratory evening, which was capped off by captivating Sway Chicago and Fireworks over Lake Michigan.
Editorial Portrait Photography: Things have sort of come full circle….. when I was a teenager my best friend introduced me to his family past time, meeting professional athletes and getting their autograph. This kind of went hand in hand with collecting trading cards. Both of which were my primary hobby until I fell in love with photography.
A little more than 20 years later I found myself creating portraits of the top NFL draft pics for their rookie football cards.
