University of Chicago Wedding Photography

By on September 18, 2017

University of Chicago Wedding Photography. I had the pleasure of photographing Stase and Phil not only during their wedding day but also their engagement session at iconic Union Station in Chicago. As a Chicago and Los Angeles wedding and engagement photographer, I love getting to know my brides and grooms to make sure they feel at ease when photographed on their wedding day.

Stase and Phil chose a beautiful location for their wedding day photos – enchanted and the gorgeous University of Chicago. Stone walls are covered with ivy and are full of history and class. Despite chilly Chocago weather, Stase and Phil powered through and let their tender love for each other show in gorgeous wedding photographs. Stase’s classic fitted silk wedding gown was a constellation of style feminine elegance. Orange color scheme of the bridesmaids’ dresses and groomsmen’ details blended in perfectly into the color scheme of Chicago gardens in the fall. Check out for yourself!

Engagements

Union Station Chicago Engagement Photography

By on

Union Station Chicago Engagement Photography. Stase and Phil met in Chicago and their love story blossomed in this beautiful city. It was only natural that when Phil popped THE question and Stase said YES, their engagement photos had to be captured in the heart of this beautiful city. Stase spends her mornings commuting to Chicago from the suburbs and she visits the iconic Union Station in Chicago every day.

Union Station and the frequent visits there became a symbol, a metaphor of everything State was able to achieve in her career and everything she is yet to accomplish. When choosing a perfect engagement photos location, Stase wanted to capture her first love, Union Station and her forever love, Phil, together. Russian-speaking Engagement photographer Polina Sergeeva was up for the task!

Stase, Phil and their engagement and wedding photographer Polina Sergeeva met for a coffee before the engagement session to chat, break the ice and get to know each other. Stase and Phil shared their story and their vision for their wedding. Chemistry flowed freely during the engagement session since we hit it off right of the bat! Golden light, gorgeous architectural details and not one person in sight inside the beautiful Union Station on a Sunday afternoon made for the perfect setting and perfect location for an engagement session in Chicago.
