A Lake Forest Wedding – Larisa + Angelo!

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!

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!

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!
