BROOKE + MIKE // Knickerbocker Hotel Wedding // CHICAGO WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY

Brooke + Mike were another couple referred to us by a good friend of ours, so naturally we were super excited for their big day!!

One of the reasons we include engagement sessions in most of our packages is because we believe its good for our couples to get to know what it feels like to be behind the camera and get a feel of the overall flow of shooting. Its also an awesome opportunity for the 4 of us to just hang out and get to know each other! B+M opted out of the engagement session, but had NO problem feeling the flow on their wedding day!! We totally clicked and had a nice window to shoot lots of B+G shots which we loooooved.

The Millenium Knickerbocker Hotel was the backdrop for the entire day, from getting ready all the way through dancing, and I have to hand it to Victor, the venue coordinator. He did an amazing job and everything went soooo smoothly!

We also were, of course, ecstatic to work with some of our favorites from Tamara Makeup + Hair Artistry. Those girls are SO talented!

B+M, we hope you guys had a FABULOUS honeymoon!! Thanks so much for letting us be a part of your special day! Best wishes!
