Jenny + Ryan: St. Michael Church and Newberry Library Chicago Wedding

I’m going to warn you now: this post will be long. Chicago weddings still hold a special place in my heart. I lived there for almost four years—I became passionate about photography thanks to the Chicago Photography Center, where I took just about every class they offered and eventually started teaching. I apprenticed under a wedding photographer there and got my feet wet photographing insanely beautiful weddings that I probably had no right to photograph in the very early days. I started planning my own wedding there before our venue went out of business and we moved the whole shindig to Mexico.

Jenny and Ryan’s wedding took me to three stellar Chicago locations—The Palmer House, where everyone got ready, St. Michael’s Church, which epitomizes the beauty of Chicago churches, and the Newberry Library, which I remember slipping into years ago to explore after reading ‘The Time Traveler’s Wife.’ On top of all this, Jenny was one of the most expressive brides I’ve ever had the honor of meeting. Her face exuded pure joy all day, from the big hug that she gave me when I arrived until the moment we said our goodbyes. The day flew by—it was nonstop fun. Jenny and Ryan, I’m honored that I was able to be a part of your special day. I wish you all the happiness back in LA.
