Savor Now

The most important thing you can do to help create meaningful photographs on your wedding day is to let go of the details and be present in the moment. Don’t get distracted by a needy relative or a detail you expected to be different. None of that matters. The couple dictates the tone of the day; if you are joyful and carefree, your guests will follow your lead and it will be a very magical experience.

Letting go is a liberating feeling; you just need the courage to take that leap. Our most beautiful couples are always the ones focused on each other and their friends and family. It is unattractive for a bride or groom to be upset over inconsequential things when they are surrounded by so much love and attention. The only things that truly matter are feeling connected to your significant other and enjoying every second. Your wedding day will be over before you know it.

Photographers need to witness real chemistry between two people in order to create powerful photographs. If you focus on each other, beautiful and authentic wedding images are more likely to unfold. By following these tips, not only will you get more interesting photographs, but you will enjoy your wedding weekend so much more. Savor now and you will be rewarded with meaningful photographs that will help you remember forever.

We feel fortunate to live and work in the beautiful, Chicago neighborhood of Logan Square, among many talented artists and entrepreneurs. We believe in the beauty of blending historic with modern. Built in 1916, our European style live-work building, is land-marked by the city of Chicago, full of character and modern style. It is a dream come true to have a charming studio, surrounded by beautiful boulevards, as the foundation of our creative endeavors.

"It is a pleasure to get to know our couples, become part of their inner circle, understand their connections, and hone in on what matters most. Every celebration has its own personality, vibe and feeling. To interpret and translate the feeling, love and joy, we look for the split-second glances, tender touches, belly laughs and genuine smiles. Emotionally connected, we sense magical moments; one must first feel, and then see to be able to interpret. This is the foundation of our creative process."

"Inspired by all art forms: paintings, architecture, fashion, cinema, music and food, we incorporate our sensibilities into everything we do. Blending emotional imagery with a modern and elegant viewpoint is how we tell very personal stories in a nuanced way. We do this so that you may savor your celebration, long after it ends, and remember those feelings forever. It would be our privilege to interpret your unique story."
