I’ll keep this one short because the photos speak for themselves, but I will say I couldn’t think of a better way to officially kick off the 2015 JTPhoto wedding season. Erin + Jared put together one of the most beautiful wedding days I have been lucky enough to be a part of. From the mismatching sequin bridesmaids dresses to the blue tuxedos to the most beautiful spring day in Chicago – everything really came together to celebrate these two IU alum. Friends and family from near and far shared in Erin + Jared’s love and tears of happiness, and I’m so happy I was there to capture their special moments. Their First Look was one of my all time favorites, and I must say, I had an absolute blast hanging out with the wedding party all day 🙂 To Erin + Jared, you’re the best – I’m so happy I was there to not only document your day but also be there as a friend. All the best!

Caitlin and I watched the weather every half hour up until it was time for the session. What started off yet another rainy and gloomy spring day in Chicago – turned out to be one of the most beautiful nights we’ve seen yet. Just as I thought there was absolutely no way the foggy skies were going to clear up, the unpredictable Chicago weather threw me for a loop and started leaking some sun into our skyline that I love so much. When I arrived at Olive Park, Caitlin + Devan were already there soaking up the sun – having spent the day downtown with their daughter Alli.

Getting to spend some time with Caitlin + Devan before their wedding in Lake Geneva this weekend was wonderful. It gave us a chance to understand each other, know how each other operates behind/in front of the camera, and we got to have a little fun and enjoy the unexpected gorgeous Chicago evening. Caitlin + Devan, I can’t wait to celebrate your wedding in Lake Geneva this summer – until then… enjoy the rest of your Engagement and I’ll see you verrrrrrrrry soon 🙂 JillTiongcoPhotography-ChicagoPhotographer_0001.jpg JillTiongcoPhotography-ChicagoPhotographer_0002.jpg JillTiongcoPhotography-ChicagoPhotographer_0013.jpg JillTiongcoPhotography-ChicagoPhotographer_0003.jpg JillTiongcoPhotography-ChicagoPhotographer_0004.jpg JillTiongcoPhotography-ChicagoPhotographer_0005.jpg JillTiongcoPhotography-ChicagoPhotographer_0008.jpg JillTiongcoPhotography-ChicagoPhotographer_0006.jpg JillTiongcoPhotography-ChicagoPhotographer_0007.jpg JillTiongcoPhotography-ChicagoPhotographer_0010.jpg JillTiongcoPhotography-ChicagoPhotographer_0009.jpgJillTiongcoPhotography-ChicagoPhotographer_0012.jpg
