Willow Harbor Vineyard Wedding : Timon and Phillip

If a wedding photographer can have fans like the groupies in the 80s screaming their way behind stage at a Quiet Riot concert, then I have found my match.

Timon Bernstein contacted me in January of 2010 right after her engagement to Phil (thanks to former 2006 clients for yet ANOTHER referral). She knew nothing about where, how and when, but she was very clear she loved my work and wanted me to be her photographer. Period.

Salvage One wedding photographs : Alyssa & Aaron

I haven't been to Salvage One in about 8 years. I forgot what how fun the space is with all the old trinkets and larger-than-life objects from old Chicago buildings: columns, clocks from the tops of buildings and other architectural decor. It is slightly overwhelming, and slightly intimidating.

Crystal Garden Navy Pier wedding : Nikki & Matt

As the wedding season is now in full swing, it is always such an odd feeling to reconnect with brides who you have not seen in so long. Sure, we chat via email, Facebook and on the phone throughout the duration. But considering I have shot at most of the venues in the city, it is rare I do a final walk-through anymore.

So really, it isn't only the bride who is excited on the day of her wedding, I am a little excited as well to reconnect.

Chicago wedding photographer: Kevin Weinstein’s Studio 10th Anniversary

Chicago wedding photographer, Kevin Weinstein Photography, was born 10 years ago today.

May 31, 2001:  I worked my 9th day in a row, and my usual eleven hour day at the newspaper.  I was 29, and exactly 2 weeks away from 30.  Sure, I was anxious and nervous about the milestone birthday.  Life felt empty.  My work schedule dominated my waking hours and my social life was an after-thought.
