Yolanda and Bizhan | Room 1520 | Chicago, Illinois


This wedding was particularly near and dear to my heart. I’ve known Bizhan since the beginning of my career – in fact he was one of the first Chicago musicians to take a chance on the newly-formed Thara Photo almost a decade ago. He met his perfect match in Yolanda and I loved working with both of them. Their Fulton Market wedding had that great industrial vibe that is classically Chicago. It was my first time shooting at the venue Room 1520, but I hope I get to go back soon. Because they forgo a traditional first look, we lit up the courtyard for portraits after the ceremony and had a ton of fun with shadows. We took advantage of last light on the roof with the wedding party and I was thrilled with the outcome. The night ended with a surprise musical performance with Bizhan and his good friend, such a treat for their guests. Cheers to a longtime collaborator and his new wife!
