Chicago Wedding Photographer Armour House Wedding // Annie + Scott


There’s a reason Annie and Scott had their wedding at the Armour House in Lake Forest. Because it’s an absolutely gorgeous wedding venue. Everything from the stairwells to the gardens is just perfect. It smells of mahogany and leather bound books! The place has history, and you feel it when you’re there.

I had never shot a wedding at the Armour House so I was very excited to explore the grounds during various parts of the day. Annie and Scott structured their day in a way which gave us plenty of time for bride and groom portraits. Luck smiled us on and we had some beautiful clouds roll through and then a killer sunset – wow! Annie and Scott are the perfect couple because they put complete trust in me which gives me the freedom to be creative with their portraits and tell an amazing story of the day. This is the kind of collaboration I ask for of all my couples! This is what it takes to create amazing photos.

Annie and Scott, thank you – you both rock!

It was a really great day, full of laughter and fun memories. I hope you enjoy viewing these photos from their wedding at the Armour House in Lake Forest – we had a blast creating them!
