we often joke that everyone we photograph has a secret model inside of them dying to get out. well in the case of this wedding, we had actual models in the bridal party. no pressure, right?erika and her fabulous siblings have all modeled professionally, and it was so much fun to get to work with them at this wedding! on top of that, this was our first wedding down at the university of illinois campus! i’ve never been to a big ten campus before, so i was particularly excited about this one.
erika&chris planned a positively gorgeous wedding, chock full of awesome photo-op locations and perfect details. my personal favorite parts of the day? in no particular order – erika&chris’s first look at their home; erika’s drop-dead-gorgeous dress; and the looks on erika’s brother’s faces as she walked down the aisle. (seriously, it was so cute.)
erika&chris – thank you so much for having us as a part of your day! it couldn’t have been more perfect!
