Kristen + Mike . Chicago Engagement

January 23, 2013

These pictures were taken at The Drake, The Knickerbocker, and along Michigan Ave. Kristen and Mike wanted a very glam and old Chicago feel to their pictures. Despite the typical Chicago cold winds, we were successful! I chose to only blog the black and white, but of course they will be getting color in the gallery as well.

I can not wait for their wedding this December! It goes without saying that Kristen is going to make a gorgeous bride! rar kristen!rockin’ that Vera

Scott and Amanda are friends of Tom’s and I, and we were super excited to shoot their wedding. Tom and Scott work on Homer together, so we knew almost everyone there and in the bridal party. We had a blast! Amanda and Scott added some really unique details to their wedding day to make it special to them as a couple. They incorporated their love of music, family history, and the fire department wherever they could.the tambourine is a family heirloom one of the groomsmen played the ceremony music even as he walked down the aisle!Amanda you were striking!how cute is the lipstick on her cheek? Amanda kissed herscott looking so handsome! how stinking cute is amanda, seriously! i couldnt resist dancing a bit with margie 😉 andrea has some moves! lol!

amanda + scott,

tom and i wish you a perfect happily ever after!
