A Modern Wing wedding at the Art Institute of Chicago

Jana and Renaud hosted their wedding at the modern wing of the Art Institute of Chicago, which is perhaps one of my very favorite venues. The clean, modern lines, and beautiful light that filters in everywhere makes it a dream to shoot in. As fun as it was to photograph these two, my favorite thing about their wedding was the energy around it. These two are as equally devoted to their careers as they are to each other, which has meant a long distance relationship for quite some time. You can tell that time together is precious for them, and that they cherish every minute. Bringing this energy to the wedding day made for a lot of emotional moments, which the documentary photographer inside of me of course loved! Here are a few of my favorite shots for their day.

Shooting in this garden when it is empty is a rarity, but when it is empty, it is by far one of my favorite places for bride and groom portraits.
