Kaman and Andrew scrapped their large wedding this fall and opted for a Chicago City Hall elopement! I have to tell you; this was one of the highlights of the season for me. Their appointment at City Hall was at 9 AM. As the sun rose, we got Kaman and Andrew dressed and whisked off to an 8 AM first look! The city was lovely and quiet that early, and we found the perfect spot nestled along an ivy wall for the reveal. Kaman’s bouquet was beautiful and her dress so romantic. Andrew was debonair in his black suit.
We dashed to City Hall and joined a line up of other brides to be.
Their elopement afforded me the perfect opportunity to be creative and capture what it truly is to document the time we are going through as a nation, as humans, and a bride. Not only was I able to make romantic portraits, but I was also able to take the angle as a documentary photographer and truly tell their story in an authentic way.
The rest of the day, we explored the city, laughing and having some exquisite moments together. Kaman and Andrew were a fantastic couple, and we were so lucky to take part in their day!
