Ellie and Jamie just have this spark about them. You know those couples… the ones you see walking down the street just 100% into each other, and you think they must have only just started dating a month or two ago? That is Ellie and Jamie… except they didn’t start dating just a couple months ago. They are well into their relationship (and now married! – yeah!) and yet, you could mistake them for a couple of crazy teenagers just falling in love! They have this spark and this chemistry between them and it is the most beautiful thing to witness and photograph!
We had the best fall day for their wedding in downtown Chicago and hit up so many beautiful spots in this great city throughout the day!! From prep photos at the Trump Hotel, to photos along the river walk, to the ceremony in Wicker Park, and back down to Lurie Garden and the Art Institute for the most beautiful golden hour portraits… to closing down the night with one awesome cocktail reception and epic dance party at The Tortoise Club! It was just a truly awesome day from start to finish and we were so happy we got to be a part of it all!!
Ellie & Jamie ~ Thank you so much for having us be a part of your fabulous wedding day!! We loved getting to know you guys and were honored to document this next step in your love story!! You two are one of a kind, and I know that spark and joy you find with each other will only get stronger through the years!! Enjoy every minute!! All our best ~ Christy & James xoxo
So much joy!!! Loved this day & these two!!!
