I have to confess that I was very excited for this wedding day to arrive. After spending an afternoon talking about their incredible (and adventurous) road trip in which Gabriel proposed to Danielle, we ended their engagement with a glass of sangria and tapas, knowing that their wedding would be one of a kind… and […]

It was an elegant, classic and multicultural wedding that left many tourists in awe the moment the groom arrived on horseback along with hundreds of guests to one of Chicago’s iconic hotels, The Drake Hotel. Sarah and Samir chose the Grand Ballroom as the setting to where they would celebrate their union with a traditional […]

Today’s post is full of joy, rustic details, gorgeous lighting, family, friends, and the best of two worlds! Bethany and Sebastian’s vision for their big day was to feel like home… surrounded by nature, orchard fields, rustic elements, family, and love; so when they found the County Line Orchard it was the perfect place to […]

Chicago Vintage Wedding – What an amazing wedding day! It was so incredibly fun to see Samantha and David get married a couple weeks ago. The bride was extremely calm and the groom although always quiet, had a kind and sincere smile. We were surprised by the fact David decided to wear Irish attire; which made him a very unique groom.

At the moment we met Louise and Zack, we knew something excited was about to happen. We couldn’t stop thinking how fun their wedding day would be with Louise’s Irish sweet accent and Zack’s constant smile. After a few minutes of talking, we forgot about the purpose of the meeting and all we could talk […]

Honest, sincere, happy (very happy) and super friendly…is how we would describe Tissy and Jeevan, a couple that always brings a smile to our face by just looking at their pictures. We feel like we’ve known Tissy and Jeevan forever and probably due to the fact that we have been witnesses of their love since […]

If we had to choose a city to live in other than our top 3; Medellin, Chicago or San Francisco (and the list will probably continue to grow as we haven’t been to Paris yet), we would definitely choose New York. There is something about big cities that makes us feel alive, energized and creative… […]

It wasn’t until two hours before the shoot that we had to change the first location planned months before. Thanks to the bipolar Chicago weather, we ended up shooting at Garfield Park Conservatory; A place like no other with beautiful backdrops. At the end we were extremely happy with their engagement photos and to get […]

This year we kicked off the Chicago wedding season before it usually starts, during what we call the off-season. Personally, these weddings are a dream come true for us, as we are able to highlight Chicago’s beauty during the cold months without the pressure of the heat and humidity, which is any bride’s worse nightmare. […]

We had never had the opportunity to photograph a wedding at the Planetarium and after doing so we now understand why it’s such a popular place in the city. The view of downtown at night is spectacular and turns any moment into something so special. Gina and Josh arrived to our studio a few months before […]

We are blessed to have the job that we have…and each image that you are about to see will demonstrate why…   Being part of stories, getting to know couples that then go from clients to friends, being part of a family for a day and being behind the camera of the images they will […]

Comenzar el 2016 haciendo lo que nos apasiona es ciertamente un buen augurio de que será un año lleno de amor y de hermosas historias que contar. El fin de semana pasado pudimos ser testigos de una nueva historia de amor, la boda de Ana y Jorge, una pareja con la que “hicimos clic” el […]

En este 2015 comenzamos el año celebrando y siendo testigos del amor y afortunadamente lo terminamos de igual manera, siendo participes de infinita alegría. Hace unas semanas estuvimos como invitados y fotógrafos en la boda de Carlos y Mafe en Medellin, Colombia. Una pareja joven, llenos de sueños y con unas familias que de comienzo […]

We have been dying to post these photos since the moment we took them. Danielle and Gabriel are cops and even thought we’ve done so many different photos at the Chicago Theater, this was the first time a cop car was parked right in front of it… And with that we were able to call […]

The moment we saw their big smiles when we met at Buckingham Fountain last Sunday, we knew it was going to be a fun shoot… and the weather couldn’t be more perfect! Here is a sneak peek of a gorgeous couple and day!

This was an engagement to remember… some rain, fall colors, Chicago city night-lights and lots of laughs. We loved working with these two! Their wedding isn’t until next spring in New York but we’re already looking forward to their bid day! Here are just a few of our favorite photos.

It’s during this time of the year that nostalgia hits us as we see the months fly by and chapters close. As we finished our last wedding of the year here in Chicago, we realized how fortunate we were to tell so many love stories and all their special moments.  We were touched by many […]

The anticipation and feelings flying around minutes before Alejandra and Edwin’s first look will always warm our hearts. Not only were they excited but super nervous as we prepared everything on the terrace of the Arista Hotel in Naperville. Why you ask? Because they had been waiting for this moment ever since they met in […]

For those that have read our posts must think that we always refer to all our “clients vs friends” as beautiful, good human beings and made for one another. And we do, because it’s true! We believe 100% that one attracts what they want in life and we have focused on attracting the best clients, […]

As uncle and aunt of Cristian (the groom) it’s hard to describe their story without being emotionally attached. But in the eyes of anybody that was present at their wedding last month in Medellin and personally knows this couple, we can easily say that each and every word used to describe the newlyweds falls short […]
