Dennis & Damaris were in the same small group at church. Little did she know…but Dennis took notice of her. =)
And so it began with a text message. And then some gmail/facebook chatting. More text messages. But still Damaris would not agree to meet in person. Only after much persistence did she finally agree and the rest was history! It was an Asian-Latino wedding: Indian & Puerto Rican families coming together in marriage. I love the diversity the body of Christ can bring together.

I loved the lime green wall in Damaris’ room- I had to incorporate that into her wedding dress photo!
A photo of mom helping her daughter one last time before the ceremony
A portrait of the beautiful bride-
I love the natural light inside Faith Alliance Bible Church- makes for an awesome entry photo!
One of those moments that only a few people saw…I love my job as a wedding photographer!
He couldn’t take his eyes off of her…
First time I ever really got a photo of the important ring passing moment-
We headed out to Chicago, near O’hare for our creative photosession. Dennis is an amateur photographer himself and so I used a technique that I knew he would appreciate for this photo-
It took some time to get to this location, but we definitely made the most of it!
The ladies wore Tiffany blue dresses-
And I really liked how the Tiffany blue worked with the dark grey suit/tuxedo.
And then there was this photo. I’ve never been so happy after a photo before. I was as giddy as a junior high kid on Mountain Dew. So much effort pre-wedding went into this moment and to see it work was an amazing feeling. Chicago O’hare International airport…lots of airplanes flying around…the location of choice for this photo.
Add to the stress level: the intermittent thunder storms throughout the day which threatened to cancel this photo opportunity or move the airplane flight patterns.
literally…5 minutes after we took this photo…the skies opened up and the thunderstorms rolled in! It was pouring rain by the time we got to the reception just 10 minutes later.
And finally a photo of the rings on their wedding color- Tiffany Blue!
