Ryan & Bridget’s Wedding, July 2018 (Palos Park & Frankfort, IL)

Lead Wedding Photographer, Blake Pleasant; Second shooter, Matt Andersen

Bridget & Ryan were a blast to get to know, and their wedding was AMAZING! The ceremony was at Wayside Chapel in Palos Park, and ceremony was held at CD + Me in Frankfort, Illinois, on July 21st 2018.

These were some of my favorite wedding photos I’ve captured to-date. Thanks to Bridget & Ryan for being so cool and down to earth. Your day was one I’ll remember for a long time- so much fun and great memories.

Chicago Renaissance Wedding: Adam & Sarah

Second-shooting for M Lindsay Photography

I had the opportunity to second shoot for my friend, Meagan Shuptar (M Lindsay Photography) Saturday, September 3rd downtown Chicago at the Renaissance Chicago Downtown Hotel, and Kaiser/Tiger for the wedding ceremony and reception afterwards. 

We had a fun day taking the trolley around with the wedding party to several Chicago picture-taking spots... the Planetarium, LaSalle Street bridge, the Chicago Board of Trade, and City Winery before taking off to Kaiser/Tiger for the official ceremony and reception. 

Big thanks to Meagan, Adam & Sarah for allowing me to be part of this special day!

Scott & Kathy, Lake Geneva, July 2015

My brother-in-law's dad was getting remarried to his high-school sweetheart, Kathy, and he asked if I would be the photographer for their special day. I was nervous at first, since this was my first time shooting a wedding, but I couldn't be prouder of the job I did. 

They were so fun and laid back, which was perfect for my first wedding shoot. Despite the harsh summer sun, and the humidity in July... I was able to capture special moments with the bridge and groom and their families. The ceremony took place at The Abbey Lake Geneva Resort & Spa at their outdoor venue, and the reception festivities followed immediately after on the First Lady of Lake Geneva (boat cruise).
