Ben + Julie | 8.6.16

Ben and Julie said “I Do” last Saturday on a beautiful sunny Chicago summer day, surrounded by family and friends.  They wrote their own vows and committed to love each other for the rest of their days. During the vows, when Ben got a little choked up, Julie reached out and grabbed his hand, gave him the supportive head nod, and squeezed his hand. It was one of the many ways that these two quietly show their love to each other in their own special ways. Getting to spend the whole day with a couple allows for you to see those little sweet things that they do to love each other and let me tell you, it’s always my favorite thing. Being a wedding photographer is an amazing privilege and I never take it for granted. Having a front seat to the official start of somebody’s “forever” story is an amazing gift.

Ben is the third of a sibling trio who have given me the privilege of photographing their weddings. I feel like one of the family and have loved serving each of them. Getting to know each sibling and their spouses has been a distinct honor and I’m excited to show you all the beauty and love of Ben and Julie’s wedding day! Ben and Julie, thank you so much for the opportunity to serve you. Love to you guys . . .

This wedding had four couples who have entrusted me with the honor of being their wedding photographer. I had to take the opportunity to get a photo with all of them. All the feels, my friends. All the feels . . .

Congratulations, Ben and Julie! My wish for you is that you always look at each other like you looked at each other on your wedding day . . .

Ben + Julie from this day forward.
