Taylor + Craig Wedding I Chicago, Independence Grove Wedding Photographer


Taylor and Craig met in college and quickly became friends, but they didn’t realize the love that was there until a few years later when they both moved to Chicago. As Taylor put it, “the friendship that we had built over the years turned into a love that I never expected, and can’t live without.” That love was evident early on in the day when there were tears, tears, and more tears shared during the couple’s first look. You will soon see it in the pictures, these two are ridiculously in love. It really was amazing to see. Taylor’s inspiration for the wedding was summer elegance; she wanted a classic yet bright look, and the rustic nature setting at Independence Grove fit perfectly. Please enjoy the pictures!

    These pictures are just amazing. What a great job you did for a great couple!!

    We are the people who asked you to take our family (of four) picture before the wedding, when you had just a small break!! Sorry to have bothered you!!! I certainly did not expect them to be published here, and don’t want them to be, but how can I see them?

    Thanks again,
