In this blog post, I want to talk about different environments for wedding portraits and my approach in creating images.
I moved to Chicago from the Bay Area/California a few years ago. Honestly, I was not happy about the move cause I knew that I have to start my business all over again, but soon I realized it was worth it!
Chicago is a great place for wedding photography. It has a strong character and vibe and beautiful nature. In other word, it has all in one!
What you can be really sure about, in places like California, is the weather! It’s mostly sunny and relatively warm, always green and most importantly, predictable!
It is lush, with greenery almost everywhere. They all can be a great backdrop for your subject: bride and groom.
People complain about the weather all the time, but that makes Chicago a unique place. Each month has its own character and vibe. A wedding in the winter is completely different from a wedding in the summer in the same location and I love that. As a creator, wedding photographer, it keeps you on your toes to create something different according to the situation and I admire that.
Generally speaking, there are two types of weddings (each tells a lot about the couple):
1-Weddings in the city of Chicago
2-Weddings in the suburbs of Chicago
