Congratulations to Megan and Jay! They were married on a unseasonably warm, rainy day in December. I captured this wedding for my amazing, beautiful (and quite-pregnant-at-the-time!!!) friend, Yazy. Yazy and John are the husband and wife team that make up YazyJo Photography, wedding photographers based in Chicago. I met Yazy at a photography workshop in Italy in 2009 and we have been dear friends ever since. In fact, I’ve formed an amazing bond with a lovely group of women (and a few men) from this group and I love having these friends all around the country. Over the years we’ve had reunions, shot weddings together and partied in Vegas at WPPI (no links for that- what happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas!). Love these girls so much!
When Yazy called me, I was happy to step in and shoot this wedding with John. Yazy was a total trooper and even at 38 weeks pregnant she tagged along for an 11+ hour day with John and I. Now Yazy and John have a precious new baby girl, who I can’t wait to meet!
I wanted to share a few images from this magical wedding day. I’m looking forward to more 2012 weddings in Chicago with my own clients, and maybe Yazy will let me shoot with her again! :)
