Candice and Jeff, where do I begin.
I photographed their engagements in their hometown of Chicago. We walked around, I wanted to shoot at weird spots, we laughed, we chilled and we got to know one another. After that Candice and I basically connected on every social media platform, and I got to watch their love from behind a screen.
Social media is weird because it can make you really feel close and know someone without really knowing them at all.
So when I showed up to their wedding, I was greeted by hugs and a gift [a cute Dino necklace that I will wear everyday of my life], and their wedding felt like a friend’s wedding and not a client’s.
After their wedding I have texted them with too many images and too many lovey texts and I’m not mad about it.
Here is their beautiful day.
