This season has been unbelievable. This wedding in particular was a dream to photograph. The day started out as a rainy, humid morning. Everyone– even us– was stressing a bit about the weather and thankfully the sky cleared up and it turned into a beautiful day. Shawna and Jeffrey live in Chicago, and due to the terrible weather this winter, we never got a chance to meet up with them while we were in their neck of the woods. We’re always a little nervous when we’re photographing couples that we haven’t met yet… Are they going to be comfortable in front of the camera?… with our weird, nerdiness? will everyone get along? Needless to say, we totally hit it off, bonded over our love of whiskey and Logan Square, and the day ended up being super amazing. Also, shout out to this hidden gem of a venue: Corey Lake Orchards. This was their FIRST WEDDING and it did not disappoint! They provided the amazing location, prepped the food, and even used fruit from their orchard in the pies for dessert. The team was absolutely wonderful to work with. We’re looking forward to grabbing a drink with S&J next time we’re in Chicago!
