The Photobombing Bride + Groom – Congrats Jim + Kate!

Luxury Wedding Photos at the Chicago Trump

I am thankful to have been able to work at the Trump Chicago Hotel a few times this past wedding season – from a Chicago wedding photographer point of view: it’s one of my favorite luxury wedding venues in our city! The staff is incredible and the attention to the little details are never overlooked! Here’s one of my favorites of Kate + Jim on the 16th floor terrace of the Trump!

A shout out to working with a great team lead by Rachel Bradley Events, my second photographer Tom, Matt Lewis led the band from Great Life Music, Hair: Frankie Christina, and Makeup by Aga!
