Michael & Christine
At certain times through out the wedding season, or maybe just at certain weddings I start to see things just in black and white… To me black and white photography is classic, timeless… true art. It’s where the image has to really make a statement, to enchant with the beauty of the moment and nothing else. The elegance of the bride, the glamour of such a beautiful historical landmark, the magical voice of the street musician that dedicated his song to the bride and groom… the crisp spring afternoon and soft sunlight… it all felt like a piece of history being written in my camera… of the day two high school sweethearts became husband and wife.
I hope you will enjoy this story as much I did creating it.
The bride got ready at the Sutton Place Hotel.
First look right outside the hotel!!! Such a sweet moment!
I just love this last image - you can just feel how truly happy they were in that moment.
Our first stop was LaSalle Bridge. And we all know my love affair with this bridge…
Off we go to the second and last stop before the ceremony!
This street musician was one of the best I have ever heard, his voice was amazing!
Germania Place is an absolutely gorgeous venue and I cannot imagine anything more beautiful than white orchids to adorn the aisle with!
Wait till you see all the gorgeous reception details! I just couldn’t stop photographing them! Especially the custom designed fine art guest book we created with their engagement pictures! Such a huge hit with the guests!!!
The first course of the evening was soup… and kisses.
The toasts were fun and sweet, filled with great stories about the couple and a few emotional moments that made for AWESOME candids of the bride and groom!
One of my favorite images of the evening!!!
I take it cake was pretty good?
Christine and Mike are amazing dancers!
And no… I couldn’t pick just one of these two images!
And once again… I couldn’t just pick one end of the evening image! Can you blame me? They are all my babies!
