Loews O’hare Wedding Photos // Francesca + Derek!

Loews O’hare Chicago Wedding Photos

There are so many amazing photos from Francesca + Derek’s wedding! First off…they looked amazing…second…they are ballroom dancers! Be sure to scroll down to see all the fun poses they had for their pictures! Couple great poses with one of most photogenic hotels in the Chicagoland area: The Loews Chicago O’hare and you can see why I had so much fun as their wedding photographer!

Francesca and her family remembered my work from when I photographed Tina + David’s wedding SIX years ago! Tina is her cousin, but she is like an older sister. As a wedding photographer, it is so meaningful to photograph ‘siblings!’

Northern Greenhouses did a wonderful job on the floral + decor! The Loews O’hare looks amazing! Is there a finer hotel in the Chicagoland suburbs?

We started their wedding day in the northern suburbs of Chicago. This sunroom caught my eye and we had to hang the dress in this room for a photo!
