plan a modern wedding in the middle of the country

Here at LLB, we believe in great love stories. Great weddings, of course-but we’re also all about the love stories and what happens leading up to and after the wedding. Jenna and John are still kindling their love 3 years post wedding, and got cozy for their anniversary session in Chicago.

From the Photographer:

Jenna & John have been married for just under 3 years, but still interact as if they were just engaged yesterday.Their chemistry and authenticity is stunning. When opportunity arose and they decided to move to California from the sweet midwest, they wanted to be sure they had photos in the place where they started their lives together: Chicago! Humboldt Park is a hidden gem on the North side of the city, with it’s trails, lagoons, and tons of landscape, so it was perfect for this couple who loved nature, but also their fabulous city. I had a vision for their sweet, simple, and romantic winter session. I wanted it to be warm and traditional, but with a unique twist. Jenna & John dressed warm & cozy without being overtly “Christmas-y.” Their natural style and chemistry is exactly what I envisioned for this session. I planned every detail to create a comfy living room scene in the middle of the forest, so John even helped me haul this vintage chair to the middle of these trees- what a champ! These two were naturals in front of the camera, and made some beautiful images on that chilly afternoon.
