An Unbelievable Chicago Wedding

Chicago Luxury Wedding Photos

“Wow” – That was a word I said a lot on Rachel + Paul’s wedding day. Combine fireworks, the Riverwalk and the talented Rishi from HMR Designs…and you have an amazing luxury wedding! First off- I want to share my two of my favorites from their wedding day! The fireworks over Michigan Avenue as viewed from the terrace on Sixteen with the most unique vantage point!

I decided to be a little creative and capture their silhouettes against the fireworks- It’s moments like these…that make my job as a wedding photographer so rewarding! It’s a once in a lifetime moment!
