Dwight Country Mansion Wedding Photography with Kristin and Chris
Photographed by Jiho
Ceremony & Reception: The Dwight Country Mansion
Hair & Makeup: Bridal Brigade
It was great to be back at the Dwight Country Mansion for Kristin and Chris’s wedding. Every wedding I have photographed there was laid back and went exceptionally smooth. Kristin and Chris’s was no exception.
Kristin and Chris were both very easy going on their wedding day. We couldn’t tell if they were a bit nervous for the first look or before the ceremony. If they were, they did a great job hiding it. Kristin’s dress was simply stunning! The details on the back of the dress were amazing. Full-length portraits of her back were definitely needed.
We finished the night with a sparkler exit and a couple night portraits to end an incredible day. Here are some of the highlights from their special day.
Chicago North Ave Beach Engagement Photography with Sara and Matt.
I love the mood that was created with Sara and Matt for their engagement session. The light was perfect for these two. I can’t wait till finally shoot their wedding at the Chicago History Museum.

Aaron is an Alumni of the University of Chicago. He proposed to Angelica on the little bridge on campus. What a perfect place to capture their engagement session on this beautiful campus.

Hotel: Ambassador Chicago
Venue: Salvage One
It’s has been awhile since I blogged a wedding. We have been none stop with weddings since June and I’ve been primarily concentrating on getting these weddings finished and hold off on teasers and highlights. There are many weddings that I will be posting in the near future. I wanted to start with Caitlin and Giovanni’s special day at Salvage One.
I always enjoy shooting at Salvage one because of all the different elements it brings to photography. There is so much to work with to create creative pictures for my clients. Caitlin and Gio’s day started with a beautiful sunny day, but we knew thunder storms were coming later on the day. We did our best to squeeze in outdoor pictures until nature caught up to us. Like I mentioned before, Salvage One’s uniqueness is perfect for indoor pictures on a rainy day.
Gio’s first look reaction was absolutely priceless and it was our favorite highlight of the day. It was like he just won the Lotto. Well, I guess he kinda did. The day went by so fast that I didn’t remember shooting some of the pictures that I did as I was going through them. Like they say, the day goes by fast when you’re having fun and we had a blast.
Here are the highlights from their wedding day.
Chicago Engagement Photography of Samantha and Anthony

Nicole and Jonathan are getting married in New York next year. They wanted Chicago pictures for their engagement session. We started near the Art Institute and made our way up to the Chicago riverwalk for a few skyline pictures. The hardest part about this session was avoiding the Trump sign from his obnoxious building. He pretty much made wedding photographer’s job more difficult. lol
A little rain shower here and there didn’t stop us from getting some cool pictures at the Lincoln Park conservatory. We took advantage of some awesome light right after the showers. For some cool engagement pictures in Chicago, please contact me.
Here are the highlights from Rachael and Brent’s engagement session.
