Cayla and Eric | Brique | Chicago, Illinois


I just just really clicked with Cayla and Eric. We had done an engagement session several months before the wedding and I just loved working with them. They were so relaxed in front of the camera, which allowed their personalities really come through in their photos. We started the day at the Ace Hotel where Cayla and Eric saw each other for the first time. The hotel allowed us to use the roof bar giving them some privacy and some super cool views of the skyline. The weather was perfect out so we casually made our way to the venue stopping for photos here and there. I just love the gritty, urban feel of the West Loop. We stumbled upon some street art to use a backdrop and made good use of the “el” tracks. Next we headed to Brique where the couple held a short, intimate ceremony for friends and family. Before the party got started, I convinced them them outside one last time to capture some portraits while the sun was setting. There was lots of construction nearby so we didn’t have much to work with, but these photos still turned out to be some of my favorite of the day. I’m so grateful to Cayla and Eric for having me be a part of their wedding day and I wish them the best!

Let me start by saying: hire Tim Hara! You will not find somebody who loves their work more, and his passion for photography is evident in his incredibly beautiful images. On top of that, he is such a pleasure to work with. We literally can't wait until we need a photographer for another event so we can hire him again, and honestly we couldn't recommend him more highly. We originally found Tim and a list of other local photographers in a search for our engagement shoot and eventual wedding. Tim was our first phone call on the list, and after we hung up, we crossed out all other names; we were that impressed. We already loved his portfolio that we had seen online, and after getting to know each other over the phone, we knew he was our guy. Tim is everything you want in a photographer. He is extremely easy to get along with and really knows his art. For our engagement shoots he had great recommendations for locations and types of shots, and we were SO thrilled with the outcome. They were our favorite pictures we've ever had of ourselves, until our wedding day. Tim was our favorite wedding photographer either of us had ever had the pleasure of meeting. Both of us have been to countless weddings over the years (and each stood up in several), and as a result we have met and interacted with many people in this profession. Truly, there's no better than Tim. When we got the photos, it made the day seem even more magical. All the emotions came back as he captured beautiful moments and scenes perfectly. A big thank you to his assistant Daniel too! Honestly, we just can't say enough great things about both of them, and they made our day so special. Thank you again!
