Kathryn + Josh are Married! | St. Louis | Chicago Wedding Photographer

Chicago wedding photographer

Holy moly, me oh my, you’re the apple of my eye
Girl I’ve never loved one like you.
Man oh man, you’re my best friend, I scream it to the nothingness
there ain’t nothing that I need.

Have you heard that song? It’s Home by Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeroes, and it’s one of my absolute favorites. It was playing in my head all day through Kathryn & Josh’s wedding shindig. They were married at the Old Historic Courthouse in St. Louis, in a small ceremony in front of their closest family and friends. They vowed to love one another for the rest of their lives, and it was perfect.

Hannah + Joe | West Loop Engagement Photographer

West Loop Engagement Photo

Hannah (who is a talented web designer) and Joe are an incredibly sweet and fun couple who wanted to take advantage of the gorgeous fall leaves for engagement photos before their wedding at the Hubbard Inn next May. They wanted a mix of a more gritty, urban backdrop and some nature, so we spent a lovely and unseasonably warm October afternoon walking around Fulton Market and the West Loop.

Familiar Shores | Editorial

Living in a big city like Chicago, one doesn’t often get the chance for solitude and wide open spaces. If you crave them (and I do) you have to seek them out in the unlikeliest of places. I was glad to have the chance to stretch my boundaries a bit and document this lovely and peaceful day at North Avenue Beach with Dennise of Tenacious Dee.
