Maergrethe and Dela are such an amazing couple. They exude so much joy when they are together and their excitement to get married is so evident. All of this makes my job as a photographer easy. Throw in a beautiful location like the Chicago Botanic Gardens and you can’t go wrong.

Contrary to what much of the Chicago summer has been, we had a perfect day at the Botanic Gardens. I loved the opportunity to get to know the two of them more through the shoot and it added to the excitement of shooting their wedding in September at the Evanston Woman’s Club.
