Field Museum Wedding Photos
We headed down to the Field Museum for their wedding photos!
On the steps of the Field Museum for a full bridal party photo with the four ushers in the background! It’s my job as their wedding photographer to find the right light…the right composition…AND make sure everyone looks good!
The ladies wanted to have fun with this picture
One of my favorite photos at the Field Museum! We draped her veil over the side of the ledge!
We found a spot of take photos with the Chicago skyline in the background!
Since the Field Museum hasÂ a lot of stone, I wanted to incorporate some nature in a weddingÂ photo!
I love the strong horizontal lines and the perfect spacing of the bridal party in this photo!
Taking advantage of the Field Museum architecture…I’m a wedding photographer that loves symmetry, lines and architecture! It all comes together in this photo!
Annunciation Greek Orthodox Church in ChicagoÂ
For those that have never witnessed a Greek Orthodox wedding, there are a lot of traditions involved! Thanks to the Priests at Annunciation for allowing us to get these fabulous photos!
Great photo by my second photographer, Tom, the father kissing the bride and Anthony smiling as he looks on!
The beautiful Annunciation Greek Orthodox Church of Chicago
As a wedding photographer, I’m always trying to get the best angle and capture a photo at just the right moment!
As a wedding photographer, I get to see what the audience cannot…Julia may not have known ‘exactly’ what to do during one part of the ceremony! oops! =)
The mothers of the bride and groom throwing petals as they walk around-
The exit! As their photographer, I tried to stay as close as possible to feel ‘in the middle of the action!’
