Kate + Andrew ~ Our Lady of Perpetual Help & JW Marriott Chicago Wedding Photography

I truly don’t even know where to begin to express my love for this couple and their amazing families! Over the years since we first shot Kate’s sister’s wedding, her family has come to feel like family to us. Through navigating a pandemic and two postponements together, followed by this long awaited day celebrating Kate & Andrew … it felt personal and was so emotional for all of us!! I walked into Kate’s parents’ home that day and tears welled up in Kate and her dad’s eyes and I immediately started to get choked up too. We had made it!! I was beyond ecstatic to see this lovely family and more importantly, to get to document this monumental day in their lives (finally)!!

Kate & Andrew ~ Thank you thank you thank you for being truly some of the most kind, down-to-earth and humble souls we have ever worked with. Your love is awe inspiring, and I’m not just saying that to say it. Looking through your entire gallery of images – my heart could literally explode witnessing how naturally and with such ease you two gravitate towards one another. The moments in between that we captured with you two felt endless because you were always so wrapped up in one another – you easily forgot we were even there. It was an absolute joy to be alongside you for your day. Thank you for sticking with us through everything. We love you and your families more than you know. XOXO ~ Christy & James
