Chicago Wedding Photographer | Something Blue Styled Shoot

Chicago Wedding Photographer | Something Blue Styled Shoot

We came up with a theme for our shoot, which was 'Something Blue'. The idea was to play off of the wedding tradition of having “Something Blue” on your wedding day. The goal of this styled shoot is to celebrate the color blue by creating an intimate monochromatic scene using various shades of soft and pale blues, accented with copper and touches of white. We photographed the styled shoot  at University Golf Club (a gorgeous golf course club house) in University Park, IL.
