Chicago Wedding at Holy Family : Kate & Jason

Having a wedding at the Palmer House always gets my attention.  For a photographer who loves ballrooms, the Empire Room, Red Lacquer Room and the Grand Ballroom are all unique in their own way.

Kate & Jason decided to host their ceremony at the beautiful Holy Family and their reception at the Empire Room at the Palmer House Hilton.  The client was brought to me by close industry friend Ali Phillips from Engaging Events by Ali.  And like all her clients, these two were a delight to spend the day and night with.  


Lately, I have been on a streak with landing some soft groomsmen.  You know, the ones who have testosterone, but aren’t afraid to show emotions, or cry.  Well, Here is one for you.  We like guys who aren’t afraid to be human.  It is nice to be able to photograph both couples sharing emotions and excitement.


We had an ambitious photography schedule thanks to their passion for photography!  I could never argue with passion, so we hit the ground running, zipped throughout the city and landed ourselves at the reception to quickly jump in a cab at the end of the night to make more pictures down LaSalle Street.


Kate and Jason, thank you both for your passion and excitement for what I do for a living.  I am truly grateful for you both.  Now please enjoy your blog post.


Be well.
