ELLIOT AND STACY

It was such an honor to take Stacy and Elliot’s photos, I’m excited to stand up in their wedding in January. It’s refreshing when a couple makes my job completely easy by being perfect and candid in front of my camera, and that they did.
Uptown, Chicago (September 2016)

JOHN AND AMANDA

February, 2016. Chicago, IL
When two people are in love it makes my life a whole lot easier. You wouldn’t guess from these photos that it was February. I had so much fun capturing these two at the Lincoln Park Conservatory, board walk, and in Pilsen.
