Langham Chicago Wedding Slideshow // Brianna + Jim

Langham Chicago Wedding Photography Slideshow 

It is so special when families and friends come together to celebrate the union of two souls. We often grow up thinking life will look like this, or life will look like that. But it rarely turns out that way. We can’t control love, and when Brianna and Jim found each other…they both knew right away…things were going to be different!

There’s a lot to be thankful for this holiday season…but I am super thankful to have wonderful clients who appreciate our work! Here’s the five star Yelp Review Brianna left for Nakai Photography! Thank you Brianna!

Kenny is an artist in how he is able to capture the moment. He was our photographer for our wedding at the Langham hotel this past weekend. I saw his past work that he did at the Langham and knew he was the one for us. He makes the pictures look like art in that nothing looks posed or fake. He is able to bring out the beauty of the city/hotel/people and capture the moment. He also is easy to work with. He’s calm and friendly but has no problem telling you what to do to get the perfect picture. His wedding album is so beautiful that it’s going to be our coffee table book. If you have any hesitation, follow his Instagram account and you will quickly see how talented he is @nakaiphotography
