I went to school with Esteban and when he asked me to shoot his wedding, I was delighted to oblige! He is a talented musician, and a founding member of the Berto Ramon Latin Jazz group. Check it out when you get a chance, its good stuff. Iris & Esteban got married right by the LoganSquare in Chicago at the Armitage baptist church. You gotta love the eclecticity (not-a-word, or is it?) of Chicago's neighborhoods... we found tons of cool places to shoot just by walking around the block.
i started the day by heading over to Iris' apartment where she was getting ready with all of her bff's.
and let me just say, I have never understood how women can get those eye pencil thingys so close to their eyes without flinching... respect to all you makeup wearing ladies out there...
then I went over to the church to check up on the guys. Does this church just ooze with the chicago vibe or what? gotta love it.
we just walked around the back of the church to find this awesome setting!
and here are a few of my faves from the ceremony...
then we got shots of the ladies... ANTM style... sorta. :D
they had their following reception at inner city impact... which featured awesome retro color walls all over the place... made things fun!
thanks Esteban & Iris for letting me share an important day in your life!!! Many blessings to the two of you!
