Surprise Proposals throughout Chicago


So, as promised in my last blog, here are some photos from a few surprise proposals I’ve had the pleasure of photographing all throughout Chicago.  The majority of couples use the most iconic Chicago backdrops as the location for this wonderful event.  Everything from the rink at the Peninsula and the rink at Wrigley Field, to the Cloud Gate, all these make for a wonderful site.  I can’t wait to see what locations I’ll be shooting in this year.  More photos to come.

Winter engagement photos in Chicago


 

As mentioned in my earlier blog, I love doing winter engagement and wedding photography.  And here are some more examples of this.  Not only do the couples get a very different background of Chicago, but also a great mysterious look that winter brings.  What I love the most is putting the ring in LOVE in snow rather than sand, which almost everyone does. In my next blog I’ll put just surprise proposals that I was more than happy to capture during lots of snow and cold.

Winter wedding and engagement photos in Chicago


With the winter in full bloom, I’ve decided to add some photos that I especially like.  Although, cold as cold can be sometimes, these wonderful couples had no problem getting comfortable in this weather.  I love taking photos in the snow, as this makes for incredible backgrounds.  Whether it’s day or night-time photos, Chicago has something to offer to everyone, winter or summer.  More winter photography to come in the next blog.

This couple is by far ready, to go to any extent for the photos they know they want.  Not only it was freezing cold, but as you know Chicago’s wind chill makes you want to go anywhere but outside.  With all these obstacles, we worked through the cold and chili air, and managed to have fun, nigh-time, winter photos, and everything they wanted, including hitting most Chicago themed locations.  Simone is amazing in being able to stand any whether and is very patient.  They are both great and I’m sure they’ll be truly happy in their future.

Night-time engagement photography in Chicago


When I first spoke to Brittani about photographing their engagement, she wasn’t sure as to the locations she wanted, but it had to be night-time engagement photography in Chicago.  So, we hit the most known spots and some not so known, but thanks to this wonderful couple, Brittani and Vito, I learned of a new spot for night-time photography, and it happens to be one of my favorites. Only in Chicago, one can find new locations all the time. I will for sure use it in my next ventures.

“Sailor Kissing Nurse” inspired engagement photos by Adler Planetarium, Chicago


Immediately after meeting Antonio and Salma, I knew that the theme of our engagement photos would be inspired by the timeless and classic “Sailor kissing nurse” photo.  We picked the Adler Planetarium as our location because they are out-of-towners and we wanted to capture the city skyline as well as other locations such as the beach, lake and park.  The cloudy weather was absolutely perfect as it acted as a large diffuser in an otherwise very hot and sunny day.  I wish this wonderful couple only the best in their marriage.

Although winter is not the ideal time for wedding and engagement photos for some couples, I had the luck of getting some wonderful people who not only wanted a winter wonderland look, but also got it. Weather actually worked in their favor.  These are just some of my favorite photos and I’d like to thank all the couples for putting up with the cold for these unique photos.

Bridal Expo 2017 at Donald E. Stephens Convention Center, Rosemont


Glad to have been part of this year’s Bridal Expo 2017 at Donald E. Stephens Convention Center, Rosemont.  It was wonderful meeting future brides and clients I’ve previously worked with.  Next to me I had help from my Drone Pilot, Vlad, who did an amazing job explaining the way drones work to future brides.  This Expo was a well planned, well organized and easily accessible show.  Thank you to all that have helped me with it.  Look forward to the next one.

When Rick and Larissa mentioned that their wedding would be at Chevy Chase Country Club, I was excited.  I know from the start that it would be not only a very beautiful wedding, but also very romantic.  Of course, having a wedding party that will do anything the bride says, is very helpful.  Although we’ve photographed outside, on the golf course, after the ceremony, they wanted some nighttime wedding photography, and  they brought sparklers, which ended up being a lot of fun.  And the photos turned up great.  I wish them the best in everything.
