Before I was a wedding photographer, I was a college radio DJ and spent many years crafting playlists and mixtapes for friends. I’ve done my fair share of crate digging, and for your wedding day, I recommend this formula:
Amelia and Kyle are eco-conscious couple. During their consultation, they stressed how much they cared about the environment; they cared about nature and climate change, and wanted to throw a fabulous wedding that was also filled with things that were renewable, recyclable, and reusable. They rented as much as possible, handmade the decorations, and picked the perfect venue: the Greenhouse Loft, which is a space in Chicago that is modern and chic, while also dedicated to making the lowest carbon imprint possible.
The venue was picked, the macrame was made, the guests arrived… then all that was left to do was profess their love for each other and get hitched.
Keiana and Gerard are very low-key, down-to-earth people. When you talk to them, they’re grounded; both of them have an energy like oak trees, roots deep underground and branches strong and flourishing. But when they look at each other, something incredible happens — they both light up, and suddenly they’re floating on air.
