Stephanie and Ross | Adler Planetarium | Chicago, Illinois


Stephanie and Ross were fantastic to work with on a hot and muggy summer’s day. We started at the Fairmont with some breathtaking views of the city serving as a backdrop to all of the preparations. The hotel is such a beautiful space and fortunately we were able to do the first look right outside. We then gathered the bridal party and headed over to Olive Park. Halfway through the portraits the sky opened up and it started pouring. Stephanie and Ross rolled with the punches though and we ended up getting some really dramatic skyline shots. After portraits we headed to the ceremony and reception at Adler Planetarium. The outdoor ceremony took place with the city as a background and couldn’t have been more perfect. The reception space was beautifully decorated and accented in purple. One of my favorite parts of the evening was when Ross surprised everyone by singing a song. Once the dance floor opened up the party really got started. Finally, I was able to sneak the happy couple out for some final shots under the stars. The perfect end to a great day.

Tim was incredible to work with. My husband was not super comfortable in front of the camera, but Tim helped put him at ease through in-person meetings and our engagement photo-shoot. We loved the way our engagement pictures came out, and come wedding day my husband was so much more comfortable. We got rained on during pictures on our wedding day. Tim and his team took it like champs. They helped us stay as dry as possible while still capturing photos of us with our skyline behind us and the clear umbrellas we brought. It was great to have them on our team in those moments when we were panicking...they were so calm! We hardly noticed them sneaking around doing their jobs throughout the ceremony and reception (in a good way), which was great because he was able to capture our day the way it happened, rather than taking a bunch of planned, posed photos. We also just received our pictures, less than a month from our wedding day! We are so impressed with the fast turnaround. We look forward to working with Tim during other events in the years to come. We would highly recommend him!
