Category Archives: Same Sex Wedding
I absolutely love photographing a same sex wedding!! There’s two of everything I love photographing – brides, bouquets, sparkly rings. But I especially love the support, emotion, and LOVE that surrounds same sex couples.
Lisa and Susan are some of the sweetest and most genuine people I have met. These two definitely made an impression on me in the short time I’ve known them. The entire day was packed full of emotions, sweet moments, and love.
They were married on a beautiful August day at Monastero’s in Chicago, Illinois. After a quick first look, we headed to Legion Park before the ceremony for some quick pictures outside then headed back to the Botticelli room at Monastero’s for the ceremony. This Sicilian restaurant is a unique and gorgeous setting for a wedding!
Here are some of my favorites from their wedding.
Congratulations again to Lisa and Susan!

This was my first same sex wedding and I freakin’ LOVED it!
As a photographer who absolutely LOVES photographing the details, there really isn’t anything better than having two brides. Two dresses, two sets of rings, two bouquets, all my favorite things to photograph were doubled. I was in my own photography Heaven.
What I loved most about photographing Elizabeth and Kristin’s wedding was all the laughter. They laughed with their friends, with their families, but most often with each other.
I was truly honored to photograph my very first same sex wedding. It was even more special for me because I went to school with both brides. It is always the very highest compliment I can receive when old friends ask me to document important moments in their lives.
Elizabeth and Kristin, it is clear to anyone that you have a beautiful love and I wish you a lifetime of happiness together.
