Remember these two? They had a lovely fall engagement session in November. Their wedding was a wonderful treat. I get so unbelievably warm and tingly when I see two people in love create a day that is about them, no one else, but them. Their day, their love, their vows, their future lives. They had love oozing out of all the little details. For Dave and Ariel this equaled minimalism. No bridal party, only their closest family and friends and a day where the two of them enjoyed a cocktail at The Roof downtown Chicago. The ceremony was sacred, quiet and authentic. Dave loves this girl and Ariel just glows when they are together. Days like this one I take it all in and can't believe my job is to capture and celebrate love. I stop and see Eric, my love, shooting beside me , and the new love in front of my lens. Thank you Dave and Ariel for choosing Eric and I to capture your day. What a privilege. Thank you for trusting us to see and document what you two share. It is so evident that you share thoughtful genuine love. I can not wait for what is to come for you two. (No really I can't!) Congratulations. Your love is awesome.
