As I sit here thinking about my trip to Chicago in July, I realize that I have 3 weddings left to photograph in my wedding career! 3! How crazy is that? I have been photographing weddings since 2007 and have decided that 2013 would be my last year. I decided this for many reasons: 1. want to have more time to spend with my husband on weekends, 2. want to focus more on glamour portraiture and my food blog (OMG Yum!
) and 3. the winds of change are strongly blowing for me at this time.
With that being said, I have not really blogged ANY weddings that I have photographed this year. Last night Liz Maryann Photography
blogged the photos of a Chicago wedding I assisted her with and I squealed with excitement as I relived that trip! Chicago was magical. The weather was PERFECT, the days were BEAUTIFUL, the wedding was INCREDIBLE, we got to enjoy SO MUCH WONDERFUL FOOD, we got to SHOP
and we got to have FUN.
Part one of our trip was all about Katie and Bar’s “UP Themed Wedding”. It was incredible. I mean just look at the photos on Liz Maryann’s blog
and you will see what I mean! Katie and Bar are two of the most fun, loving, generous, free spirited people I have met. I am so grateful to them and Liz for having me as part of the wedding photography crew. I “borrowed” some of the photos from Liz’s blog to show you a glimpse of this wedding.
Part two of our trip was the “site seeing part” where we enjoyed food, food and more food (check it out on my blog OMG Yum!
). We also did a mini “Fairy Tale” inspired shoot in downtown Chicago. You would never believe that downtown Chicago was our setting! Check out the last two photos of me in my “fairy tale” attire
Thank you to Liz, Katie and Bar for this unforgettable experience. I hope you guys don’t mind that I shared couple photos from Liz’s blog
