From morning until evening Jamie and Chris' loved ones came together to celebrate the joining of two amazing people. We couldn't have asked for a more fun, creative, and friendlier couple to work with! Its always a huge honor when a fellow photographer (Jamie is a talented children portrait photographer) invites us to photograph their love story. Here are a few kind words from Jamie:
" I am also a photographer and finding my perfect wedding photographer was tough because of my own artistic visions and high standards, then I found Liz & Joe, the answer to my photography wishes!!! Liz & Joe were amazing at bringing both my visions and theirs to life in such a gorgeous way...and I am AMAZED at how they brought my fiancé (does not love getting his photo taken) out of his shell! They really loosened both of us up so that we were natural and could have SO MUCH FUN....and we feel so lucky that we can call Liz & Joe new friends, they're that great!! "
Thank you Jamie + Chris for inviting us to photograph such an amazing day! We wish you a beautiful marriage and many more dirty dancing solos! Love you guys 🙂

I can honestly say that we work with THE best couples. Thankful for this great wedding review from one of our amazing 2015 couples Michelin & Will. They were married at beautiful http://www.qasbasilica.org/ where Michelin's mother and father also held their own wedding ceremony at as well. Their elegant reception was held at the Intercontinental Hotel in Chicago. Such a special day for this couple that we were so honored to be a part of. Here is more from the bride:
"Planning our wedding from a far was a bit of a challenge.
"On our wedding day they were amazing. It was a long, HOT day and their energy kept us going. We were really ready to get into the air conditioni
The best way to jump start a wedding weekend? Capture love in action by photographing a wedding proposal with the greatest cityscape as your background. Planned by the best Proposal Event Planners (aka) The Heart Bandits- Along with the talented Run for Cover the University of Chicago's A Cappella group sang the couples song "Sweet Disposition" while CJ got down on bended knee to propose to his love Elizabeth in front of Buckingham Fountain. Elizabeth's surprised reaction was priceless and made the whole moment so amazing to capture! Congrats to you both CJ +Elizabeth- this is just the beginning!

And we are beyond thrilled to have found such a great book making company as well. Redtree Albums are hand crafted and bound using beautiful Fuji Crystal Archive paper with lay-flat binding. The front and back cover make the best canvases to show case your favorite image, with a single photo that wraps around to the back. We love these albums for there modern and minimalistic take on an heirloom.
It will surely be the best coffee table book you will love to flip through for years to come!
We couldn't have ask for a more perfect way to jumpstart this weekend by having our FIRST (eek!) official wedding featured on my favorite blog Wedding Chicks. Hop over to see all the gorgeousness from this Chicago Garden Wedding and the coolest couple to date! We loved capturing Andy + Malerie's romantic wedding story. There is truly no better feeling than spending the day in the presence of love, family, and friends. A BIG thank you to Tiffany of A Splendid Occasion for introducing us to Andy and Malerie. We loved working alongside you and your amazing team!!
