Views of Chicago downtown

      Ashley and Sam are native Chicagoans. So, it was clear to them to photograph their engagement session in the beautiful city of Chicago. For their winter engagement session during Christmas in Chicago we chose the Chicago Riverwalk area and the spectacular Wrigley Building. This pretty scenery stands quite in contrast to their wedding location in Colorado for their 2021 fall wedding - the gorgeous Splendido At The Chateau in Beaver Creek. Both locations are not only a dream to photograph at for Ashley and Sam, but also for me as a Colorado and Chicago Wedding photographer.

      Ashley and Sam decided to go with a formal look first. Ashley wore a gorgeous ivory Maxi dress and Sam complemented her with his handsome dress suit. For their casual look they brought their cute dog along. Since I don’t have pets I am always excited when my clients bring their pets to their engagement session. It’s such a fun and unique experience for everyone to have their professional images taken with their small family.

      Chicago Engagement and Beaver Creek Wedding

      I do feel blessed to be able to share my time between Colorado and Chicago. It makes it very easy for my clients, who live in Chicago and are wanting to get married in Colorado for their destination wedding. Ashley and Sam were exactly looking for that. Having their Chicago engagement was one of Ashley’s dreams as well as getting married in the mountains.

      As a Colorado wedding photographer I always love to come back to Beaver Creek - beautiful mountain views, fabulous accommodation and good food with great company. For their Beaver Creek wedding Ashley and Sam have chosen Emily from Go Bella Event Productions, one of my favorite Colorado wedding planners I have worked with in the past. I can’t wait what Emily will design for these two sweethearts. Stay tuned until next year!
