Destination Wedding Story| Chicago, IL

In Wedding Photojournalism by drewbird0 Comments

Chicago is a very cool town. When Sarah and Chris asked me to help tell the photographic story of their wedding celebration, I was equally impressed with their laid back style, their sense for creativity, and that they wanted me to travel to one of the cooler cities in the middle part of the country. We did some great getting ready photos at the Wit Hotel in the heart of Chicago and then did a really incredible first look session in a park in the middle of State street: we were simultaneously alone and surrounded by hundreds of people. At one point a bus full of people drove by and everyone was hanging out of the windows and hootin’ and hollerin’. From there, we made our way to the Bean in Millennium Park for a private and secret ceremony with only Sarah and Chris. Finally, we journeyed to Chicago’s art district to the gallery space, Art Revolution. It was an incredible adventure and a super fun wedding to photograph and document. I do love a good destination wedding: have camera, will travel. Here are a collection of images from their story:
