I couldn't be happier for Colleen & Stuart. They were simply amazing to work with throughout the entire planning process. You can view their engagement images here. Their ideal aesthetic was elegant and modern, and the Thompson Chicago in the Gold Coast was the perfect venue (also one of my favorite places to shoot). Their day in particular was filled with both laughter and tears, as well as subtle moments and an epic dance party. I sincerely wish them both the very best!
The Thompson Chicago hotel is pet friendly, so it was great they were able to include their dog Finnegan on the wedding day.... bow tie and all.
It truly is an honor to be able to witness and document emotional moments like these between mother and daughter.
"First Looks" are one of my favorite events to photograph. Stuart's reaction is priceless!
The Thompson Chicago is honestly a fantastic location to photograph my clients.
I absolutely recommend taking a night portrait as a final image of the evening.
