St. Alphonsus Church in Chicago wedding photographer

St. Alphonsus Church in Chicago wedding photographer Heather Parker:
Jackie is my favorite kind of bride. she wears shiny red shoes under her wedding gown and goes with a simple bouquet using just red. guess what color her trolley was. yep, you guessed it, red. The wine? Red. Okay, okay you get the picture. though the jackie and mike did a “first look,” because of the limited amount of daylight at this time of year, after the church ceremony at St. Alphonsus Church, it got dark outside very quickly. having to do creative wedding photos outdoors at night can sometimes have some advantages, such as having a sparkling array of city lights as a backdrop. i am really happy with the results.
From the bride:
“I’ve been so excited to see the photos, thank you sooo much for all your hard work on our wedding day.  We had a blast and i’m glad we can now remember more of the moments through our photos. we love the pics.  There’s so many that are truly amazing and totally capture the feeling behind the day.  They were well worth the wait.  I love a lot of the details shots of the flowers, the wine bottles, the table settings, the people signing the guestbook, the tiny flowers on the cake, etc.  The outdoor shots after the wedding turned out fabulous!  There’s nothing we appreciate more about living in the city is when we’re downtown and see all the city lights and the skyline and know that we live here…truly beautiful and those shots are my favorites!”
