April & Brock | Chicago Wedding

I scratched another item off of my bucket list this year by photographing my first wedding in the city of Chicago! And I couldn’t have asked for a better experience. April & Brock are two of the sweetest, most genuine & thoughtful souls I’ve had the privilege of working with yet. They were always checking in on us to make sure we had everything we needed and were taken care of. For that, I couldn’t be more grateful.

They have the sweetest love story, too! April & Brock met at work a few years ago, and their boss encouraged them to get to know each other better. Brock played hard to get until finally they went on a date. Then he moved to New York for a job opportunity and she followed suit. Left her job, sold the condo, and moved with him. They were there for 3 years and didn’t know a single soul, so they had no choice but to get to know each other better. It paid off, because in June these two tied the knot and I have never seen a couple so clearly aware of the commitment they were embarking on together. There were so many happy tears shed throughout the day. These two truly cherish each other.

It was such an honor to photograph their day. At the end of the night April told me, “It feels like you’re my friend! I love it!” and that is the biggest compliment I could ever want. The feeling’s mutual! Thank you so much, April & Brock, for asking us to capture your day for you! I’ll never forget it!
