Colleen & Arius | Chicago Wedding!

While editing the images from Colleen & Arius’ Chicago wedding celebration, I found myself smiling, again and again! This isn’t an uncommon occurrence. This is not because I am so happy about or proud of my work, but because a flood of memories from the experience comes rushing back.

You see, very often, my couples are more than just the people I work with, they become friends. And so, when I am able to relive the moments of their day, I feel their joy, their nerves, their love! It is such a wonderful thing to be able to get to know the people I work with just a little better. And from the moment I met Colleen and Arius, I know they were two people I would get along with just fine. And from the moment I arrived at Arius’ parent’s home in Chicagoland, after celebrating with these two and their families at their Leavenworth wedding in June, it was like we were old friends. This is mostly because, as I mentioned in their sneak peek, Colleen and Arius (and their families) are just inviting people…they are giving people…they are earnest and caring… about justice and equality…and the quality of life of the people they care about most and the people they know nothing about…they are the type of people I want to be around and the type of people who’s wedding celebrations I want to witness and document and be a part of. I am thrilled to call you my friends…and it was an absolute honor to be in Chicago for your second wedding!
