Sophie is a wedding photographer’s dream. Sweet, soulful, and willing to do whatever it took for a great image. Whether it was getting ready next to a window in the dark, sitting patiently with her wedding party for a dramatic group portrait, or perching on the Union League’s grand staircase for a solo shot, Sophie was all in, all day. Sophie and Vincent are warm, loving humans with warm, loving families so it was no wonder that their day was warm and loving as well. Winter weddings in the dark? I’m there, every time.

Some people are just…joy. They radiate light, happiness, that intangible exquisite nature that makes up good people. You can see it in their eyes. In how they speak to you and to the world around them. You can see it when their family and friends look at them. You can tell by the joy that surrounds them on their wedding day. Both Rachel and Brandon are that kind of good people. From Rachel singing Once On This Island while putting on her wedding dress to the way Brandon touched her face when he arrived at her bedeken, the entire day was full of moments that simply brought tears to your eyes. It was a joy to witness, to feel that love, and to document these moments for them and their incredible, incredible families.
Here are a few of my favorite images from their wedding:
