We started in the garden’s of Chicago’s Michigan avenue Fourth Presbyterian Church…A gorgeous and calm sanctuary in the heart of the bustling Michigan avenue shopping area. The gardens are beautiful and you can see the John Hancock center across the street. The couple came from Germany to visit with family and get wedding photographs taken after having recently been married in Germany. Chicago is a special place for the couple and they had spent time here before being married. They wanted wedding photographs to remind them of all the great times they had here….
The bride and groom wanted photographs on the Michigan Avenue median with traffic surround them…This seems to be one of the most requested shots in Chicago for a wedding. I would love to see a whole book of these shots compiled to see all the variations.
I love this candid wedding photograph of a group of teenagers stopping to congratulate the newly married couple! Everyone seems to light up when they see a couple in a wedding dress and suit…
There was a crazy storm that had been gathering all afternoon and finally it struck
So we snuck into the Drake Hotel and did some shots there…in the bar
and in the lobby….
From the Chicago landmark Drake hotel, we traveled to the North Avenue beach to see if the rain would stop so we could shoot outside….
Briefly the rain stopped and we ran outside and down towards the beach….
We were out about 10 minutes and the rain started again….
But the bride was going back to Germany in a great mood because we were able to get all the photographs she wanted!
