Wan-Yuan & Josh wedding in Champaign, Taiwanese touches at University of Illinois – Urbana’s Illini Union

We were able to provide wedding photography for Wan-Yuan & Josh 23 June 2018 in Champaign-Urbana.

Wan-Yuan was a graduate student at the University of Illinois – Urbana, when she met Josh. Their first date ended up at the Illini Union, and that was where they had their ceremony and reception.

We took the bride and groom to Wan-Yuan’s graduate housing in Urbana, and their favorite restaurant in Champaign for portraits.

The ceremony started with a traditional Taiwanese Tea Ceremony. A traditional Western ceremony followed in the South Lounge of the Illini Union. Half-way through the reception, the bride changed into a traditional red wedding dress.

Congratulations to the bride and groom!

Engagement session for Meghan & Aaron in Rogers Park neighborhood in Chicago

We tell people we travel to “Chicago, St. Louis and beyond” for weddings. This time we traveled to Chicago to photograph Meghan & Aaron in their Rogers Park neighborhood of Chicago.

It’s so great to be able to photograph our couples in locations that are special for them. Meghan & Aaron live on the Lake Michigan lakefront, and we took them around Loyola Park and Loyola Beach, looking for great photo spots. Aaron takes the Red Line all the time, and knew where all the good murals were located.

A fun evening that produced images that reflect where they love to go on dates! See a full gallery of images at warmowskiphoto.instaproofs.com.
