University Of Chicago Campus Wedding Photographer | Empress Banquets | Tanya + Roberto

Simple, Classy and Elegant is how I would describe this fabulous wedding. Tanya & Roberto’s wedding was like no other and truly was a wedding to remember! The bride rolled up to her church, Sts. Volodymyr and Olha Ukrainian Catholic Church in a classic Rolls-Royce. She made an entrance to be remembered. It was my first time shooting a traditional Ukrainian / Catholic wedding and the traditions that were shared were simply beautiful.
