Becky Brown Photography » Chicago Wedding Photography

Although I shoot at Lincoln Park often, I don’t think I’ll ever get sick of it. There is so much to explore and it doesn’t hurt when you have an amazing couple to work with!

I met Ali & Josh on a gorgeous Chicago day. We spent the afternoon roaming around and talking about their upcoming wedding (stay tuned for that later on the blog).  Josh was a groomsmen at a previous wedding and we have some friends in common so I hardly felt as though I was even working on this one! It’s always fun when clients become friends!

Here are some of my favorites!

These two should look familiar from their engagement session in previous post. After having a blast during that session I wouldn’t wait for the wedding day to come!

We met them at their local church where Michelle was getting ready. The morning was full of emotions before she walked down the aisle to say I do! Post ceremony we headed to Lake Katherine for some photos with the wedding party.

The reception kicked off at Oak Lawn Hilton with cocktail hour followed by the most amazing intros of the year. They got the announcer for the Chicago Bulls, Ray Clay,  to record the wedding party introductions! So it only made sense to throw out some mini basketballs to the crowd! Dinner and dancing followed!

Here are some of my favorites from their day. You may notice several of Grandma. She was amazing, tore up the dance floor and has the most amazing expressions. I hope to one day be as cool as she is!

I was about to blog their wedding and I realized that I never blogged their engagement session! I met Michelle & Steve on a gorgeous summer day in Lincoln Park. We roamed around the South Pond area taking in the skyline view and gorgeous light before heading over to North Ave Beach for sunset. The sky was pretty amazing this night and made for some great skyline photos as the city lights started to come up.

Here are some of my favorites! Stay tuned for their wedding photos!

You may remember Laura & Tom from their spring engagement session (see that HERE).  I couldn’t wait for their wedding day and the amazing city views from their wedding venue. They had to do a change of plans when their original venue closed just months earlier with no warning. But, after you see these photos I think you’ll agree the change was okay!

We had beautiful blue skies as we headed out around town for photos before the ceremony. I had crossed all my fingers and toes for good weather as I knew the city background would be spectacular on the rooftop. Guests soaked in the views while they said their I do’s and then had cocktail hour after as the sun set over the city.

We headed downstairs to continue the celebrations and dance the night away!
