We could easily start writing this forward mentioning our beloved global pandemic (I suppose we just did) but we’re going to skip that because we’re all tired of hearing about it and especially how it’s affected wedding plans the world over. No, I think we’ll simply let this beautiful wedding at the White Studio Chicago do the talking for us. It is always such a pleasure to photograph weddings in Chicago – and this time around, we had a little help from our friend (and former bride) Carisma (thank you for documenting this day so beautifully with Justyna)!

      Thank you to the amazing team to make this day happen (credits and links below!), and of course, to Greg and Alyssa for being so patient and amazing throughout the year. This may not have been Plan A, but it most certainly was everything a wedding should be – close friends and family, beautiful food, a stunning setting that is unique to the couple and two people madly in love. Thank you for the memories!

      This wedding was photographed on 35mm film & Fuji digital
