Photographing my first Ed Libby & Co event leaves me grappling for words. I hope my story further into this post will clarify why I have such inarticulate thoughts. For those who do not know Ed Libby and his crazy talent, you will find him based in New York City working as a florist and event designer creating parties that are the definition of luxury all over the world.
In less than a week, we will be shooting the traditional Chinese wedding of Shidi and Feng in Chicago’s Chinatown neighborhood. Shidi was the bridesmaid to a former client we photographed several years ago.
Katie and Brett … from the bottom of my heart, thank you both so very much for having me at your wedding at The Drake Hotel. When Katie Goggin from Designer Event Chicago called to see if I was open, and able to shoot your event, I admit, I was scared.
This past April I had the pleasure of shooting a surprise engagement party at the Hotel Bel-Air for my close friend Stephanie Snow. The original purpose of the engagement wedding party at the Hotel Bel-Air was for Ellen Black of Lehr and Black Custom Invitation’s birthday.
It is finally nice in Chicago, and during my most recent visit I found myself pushing through about 5 destination engagement sessions during my month-long visit.
