It is always an honor to photograph a fellow photographer’s wedding. Ryan is a freelance/wedding photographer and Karen is a writer.

The couple wanted a unique place for their ceremony so they were married at Friendship Park Conservatory in Mt. Prospect, Illinois. Despite the rain drops Ryan and Karen were in high spirits on their big day.

The day was a blast for me to photograph. Ryan and Karen were so sweet to me throughout the day. I must mention that I met Ryan when I was a high school student. I met him when he was working at the Northwest Herald in Crystal Lake. I never thought I would get to have the honor of photographing his big day.
