Traci and David’s ethereal wedding is featured in the Summer 2014 issue of Inside Weddings.
We had the pleasure of photographing Traci and David's fairy-tale adventure and being by their side during such a magical day. While this wedding was overflowing with exquisite and creative details, the heartfelt love radiating from all of the guests was even more impressive. The energy in the room was unbelievable; it is still one of the biggest reasons why I love photographing weddings.
Selecting the best-fit photographer for your wedding can be an overwhelming process. Hoping to help couples make the decision easier, I wrote the below article for Inside Weddings. Ideally, you will find a photographer who is the complete package: talented; built for your event; shares similar style sensibilities; and is easy to be around.
A sweet and gentle love. Michael couldn’t take his eyes off his gorgeous bride, Chelsey. Long-time friends traveled from near and far to help celebrate their special day. Family traditions were carried on as the men wore Scottish kilts with their various tartans. Every detail was authentic and meaningful.
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."Heather KingenSmith ×
