One of our highlights from last year was when Amanda, whose wedding we photographed in the summer, took the microphone at the Springfield Local Favorites Bridal Bash at Northfield Inn and Suites and told all the brides what great photos and service she received from us. She said she didn’t have to worry about photos at all, and had a great time with us on her wedding day. Thanks Amanda!
Part of the plans for our Springfield professional wedding photography was to photograph the couple on the running trail in Centennial Park where they met. With temperatures over 100° – we took a quick photo then jumped in the air-conditioned limo and headed to their health club for fun photos with the wedding party.
Other vendor note — flowers, centerpieces and decorating by Tom Anderson of An Event Design florists and event planning.

Our bride and groom Margie & Ken are getting their photos today of our downtown Chicago wedding photography at the Ritz-Carlton (Four Seasons) last weekend. We wanted to share some detail shots and links to some of the great wedding vendors who helped make the evening so wonderful . . .
A string quartet from Rendezvous Music played contemporary music through the night, such as Viva La Vida by Cold Play and All You Need is Love by the Beatles. At one point I went over to Tiffany and joked it was like watching one of our favorite movies, Love Actually. Rendezvous Music provides live music for Chicago special events. Ken passed along the contact info for one of the performers, Katherine Hughes.
Margie wanted a white rose wedding bouquet, and the best she found was from Scot Steuber Florist & Greenhouses ezblooms.com in Chicago (773) 238-2013. They also decorated the event room at the Ritz-Carlton.
Also had fun photographing details of the intricate decorations around the hotel. The hotel also catered hors d’oeuvres and a wonderful dinner.
When we photograph weddings we pay special attention to the details of the day. You put so much effort into the extras that make the day, and we want to help you remember how great everything looked.

Nicole & Erik were married Sunday, June 12, 2011, at Erin’s Pavilion at Springfield’s new Southwind Park. The cake design was something we had never seen before. Nicole said she saw the design in a book of ideas at Specialty Cakes and loved it. Here Tammy from Specialty Cakes decorates with flowers and greenery from An Event Design.

We’ve made two trips to the Chicago area for weddings in the past three weekends, and just wanted to make a compilation of some wedding tips and vendors contacts . . .
For our Lake Zurich, Illinois wedding we came across some awesome food from “Something’s Cooking” Ltd of Des Plaines. Chef Ken Larsen and Chef Jim Pascolla offer custom catering and events, and cooked up shish kebobs, tri-colored ravioli and macaroni & cheese that everyone was raving about. Neat thing about the food was it didn’t have to be hot to be good (guests nibbled all night long). Web link above of 847.298.5002.
For our wedding in Arlington Heights / Palatine / Schaumburg we were quite impressed at the offerings of Hotel Bollero (recently renamed from Hotel Indigo). The meal was very high class, staff very attentive – a nice boutique hotel. Options for bridal shower menu, rehearsal dinner, day-after brunch (Quinceañera, too!) 847.359.6900. Sales & catering “in.bassador” is Kasia Piotrowski x.1629.
The bride told Marta Kulach of Design de Flores “I want ivory roses and I love hypricum berries” – and she was off. Results were stunning. 773.704.8200.
Not only a great red velvet wedding cake, but a tasty selection of deserts from Sugar Hills Bakery. 847.658.8765 Algonquin 847.541.4800 Wheeling.

When photographing a couple’s wedding rings, I try to think of something a bit more creative than just the “hand-over-hand” shot. I sometimes resort to putting the rings in the flowers of the bride’s bouquet, but I have been trying to do something more creative than that lately as well. A couple of the photos below are the result of remembering something someone said earlier in the day and incorporating it into the photo.
