River Roast / Fulton’s on the River | Chicago, Illinois | Terri and Albert • When the couple you’re shooting portraits for stop to talk to a homeless man, or help another foreign couple who are lost (and in Italian — they met in Italy), you know you’re working with someone special. These two were already married so it would just be a reception for them. It has to be one of the most stress free events we’ve ever shot. No pressure — just fun. We often do custom coverage for people needing less but Terri and Albert wanted to make sure that their reception got the attention it deserved. And with a place like River Roast putting out some of the best food in Chicago, we knew it would be nothing short of spectacular. These two were so easy going, so at ease and just happy to enjoy their day with family and friends. To be honest, this is what I like weddings to be about: the reception. Gathering with family and friends, connecting with old acquaintances and giving a chance for families to get to know one another as they join together. We can’t thank Terri and Albert enough for how kind they were to us and for making us feel like family. So if you’re already married and never had the chance to have a reception, we’re happy to help.
