chicago backyard wedding: kathryn + tim

while i’ve been lucky to shoot at some of the most stunning wedding venues around, a backyard wedding still gets me the most. they are inherently personal, laid-back, simple, and intimate … the very traits i always hope to see reflected in my work and approach.

perhaps it’s because they are yogis, but kathryn and tim had some of the most calming, good-natured energy i’ve encountered in the context of a wedding day. i adored them and their kindness (including the kindness and welcoming nature of their families), and i loved seeing their sweet dog, delilah, work her way into nearly every frame of the day. sounds trite, but it’s very true … beautiful people, beautiful day.
