So you’re having a winter wedding because you either love the cold (and maybe getting some snow in your wedding portraits) or simply because it’s the new high/trendy wedding season in Chicago.  One of the first questions while planning a wedding timeline is: where are the best indoor photo locations (either in downtown Chicago or […]

The day finally arrived! We have waited too long to share the wedding of Jaime and Will on the blog but with the days passing by so quickly and at the peak of wedding season, we were kiiiiind of behind (but it’s never too late). We usually get excited when the countdown of each wedding […]

Each wedding has its difficulties and in this one the ceremony was the tricky part of all. Being a ceremony in the afternoon with the sun reflecting in the city buildings, the warm tones, the shadows and the changing light was hard to control, but as we always say, we are there to offer solutions […]

Our #1 New Year’s resolution (besides working out and eating healthy🙊) is to start blogging more… sounds easy but it’s not! If we write the same way we speak, our text will be full of Emojis, quotation marks, and tons of grammar mistakes. But like every new resolution, is better if you start somewhere. Trying […]

The warm side of winter weddings  With the endless winter and some must needed colorful days, we are looking back those first weddings of 2018.
