Marlee + Zach ~ Chicago Intimate Backyard Wedding Photography

Goodness was this wedding the highlight of the year for these families! After an especially difficult year – the joy and love between everyone in attendance was just palpable… especially (& obviously) between Marlee & Zach. Being a part of their day felt like we all took a collective deep breath and let the stress of everything else just wash away. It was an absolutely perfect day weather-wise (could not have asked for more!!) and just so emotional, lovely and heartwarming from start to finish. I was alternating between laughing and crying behind my camera all day and truly – those are just the best days to be a part of. Marlee’s family is one we have gotten to know over the year’s since documenting her sister’s wedding and we felt so blessed to get be a part of this day with them as well.

Marlee & Zach ~ Thank you for trusting us with this immensely important day in your lives. I hope we captured the pure love and joy that you two exude so all those who couldn’t be in attendance can feel it in your photos. Your love and connection is like nothing else and it was such an honor to capture all these precious memories for you! XOXO ~ Christy & James

Just such a perfect day! Congrats again, you two!! XOXO
