I had the privilege of photographing Jaya and Luke’s Cafe Brauer wedding earlier this summer and the entire day was incredible. Jaya and Luke were so much fun to work with and it’s couples like them that make me love what I do. Their family and friends brought so much joy and excitement to the day and I loved getting to know them in the process as well.

We began the day downtown where both Jaya and Luke got ready with their bridal parties before we walked over to St. James Cathedral for the ceremony. After the ceremony and photographing the bridal party around some of the picturesque spots in Chicago went over to Cafe Brauer in Lincoln Park for additional pictures before the reception. There are many things that I love about Cafe Brauer. In addition to the fact that it’s on of the most beautiful and unique venues in the city, being situated right in Lincoln Park provides countless amazing locations for pictures.

Jaya and Luke, thank you so much for the honor of capturing your day! So happy for you guys!
