Valerie and Tomas were married at St. Mary’s Catholic Church in Three Oaks, Michigan. I love photographing weddings at St. Mary’s, as it was the church my grandmother attended for over 70 years. It was a small ceremony attended by immediate family only. Then, off to The Acorn Theatre for the most anticipated reception of the year. The Acorn Theatre made the perfect venue for this vaudevillian, circus like event created to celebrate the couple’s union. Read More...

Easter is one of those holidays commemorated by family traditions, one of those traditions is the perennial Easter brunch. Growing up in Chicagoland, one of the icons of the skyline has always been, The Drake Hotel, hence their latest tag line "Real Chicago". At The Drake Hotel, real traditions occur for real people. This Easter brunch had an amazing spread with impeccable service and decor not to be forgotten. With traditional events such as this, it's easy to see why The Drake has been, still is, and always will be, the finest of Chicago icons. Face painting provided by Body Art by Allison. Read More...

This is Valerie's bridal portrait that we teased you with a couple of weeks ago. We photographed the wedding at The Acorn Theatre, which is where we had the good fortune to photograph the bridal portrait as well. There were far to many images to choose from and Johnny and I have been fighting all week over this, so I'll just post my favorites and keep it simple. Not only was the location unique, but the dress had a story behind it as well. Valerie's mother made this beautiful dress incorporating over 100 ostrich feathers, obtained from ostrich.com. Interestingly, The Acorn Theatre is housed in a location which at one time was a featherbone factory using turkey feathers for women's corsets. Look for more from Valerie and Tomas, as their wedding images are soon to come! Read More...
