Lake Forest Wedding Photography
I love Lake Forest, IL. It is picturesque, quaint & has a variety of places for wedding pictures! I was excited to return to the Lake Forest Academy Armour House for Larisa + Angelo’s wedding…it’s been a couple years since I’ve been there!
Before we start this wedding blog post…here’s one of my favorites from the Armour House at the Lake Forest Academy! It’s photos like this that make this wedding photographer excited! Something classic, modern & a little fashion forward!
In case you missed them…be sure to check out Larisa + Angelo’s Lincoln Park engagement photos!
Lake Forest Academy Armour House
We started their wedding photography coverage at the Armour House in Lake Forest. The weather was perfect! The ladies were getting ready on one of the outdoor patios. A photo of her beautiful wedding dress!
The bride’s ballerina wedding shoes!
The ladies all wore these cute floral bathrobes while getting ready! The colors go so perfectly with the greenery behind them!
A fun moment of the bride getting her wedding dress down from the hook!
Such a beautiful photo of the bride! She is so happy! =)
Incorporating some of the Armour House architecture into this bridal portrait-
I love the simplicity of this photo- should be a magazine ad!
Loving the variety of bridesmaid dresses and the two colors! They go perfectly with their bouquets!
Thanks to Tom for second shooting and covering the guys getting ready at a Lake Forest hotel-
The groom looking sharp in black and white!
Caught this moment as the ladies were walking into the church! I love the way the wind blows the bridesmaids dresses just the perfect amount!

Their wedding ceremony was held downtown Lake Forest, IL. The church has such lovely details for the bride walking down the aisle picture!
Love the way he looks at his bride =)
Downtown Lake Forest Wedding Photos
We headed down the street to take photos throughout the downtown Lake Forest area! There are such a variety of architecture in a small location!
A full bridal party picture!
The bridesmaids were just lounging by this Lake Forest building and I thought it looked like the perfect color palate with their dresses!

Lake Forest Academy Armour House Wedding Photography
One of my most favorite places to take wedding photos in the northern suburbs! I’m a wedding photographer who loves architecture and nature- and the Lake Forest Academy has the perfect blend of the two!
Love this photo- Thanks to an awesome bridal party for being patient with this wedding photographer- it’s my favorite of the day!
The Armour House staircase is pretty amazing. I wanted to find a new angle for the bride and groom – I’m a wedding photographer who prides himself on creative photos – I think this one works for me!
Love how the staircase frames the bride and groom in this photo…and I love the motion of them walking down-
Love the colors on their wedding cake!

The uplighting in the white Armour House ballroom helps make for the perfect ambiance! Shout out to Okyne Medialab for a great mix of music throughout the night!
Another picture of their choreographed first dance!
The Lake Forest Academy Armour House is so photogenic! Love the colors and the candle votives!
Wedding Sparkler Exit!
They ended the night with sparklers! Such a perfect exit!
The sparklers create such a romantic atmosphere!
Ending their wedding day with a kiss under sparklers!
Thanks so much Larisa + Angelo for having me as your wedding photographer! We took so many wonderful photos through out the downtown Lake Forest area and at the Lake Forest Academy Armour House! And the sparkler exit was just PERFECT! Congrats again!
