Some of the favorite things I've eaten in the not to distant past (and hopefully soon future). Combos of Chicago eats and homemade treats. These dishes are savory and perfect for getting through Chicago winter. All shot with Nikon D600, 50mm lens and natural light.
Summer weddings in Chicago. You take a gamble on weather, but when you win, you win big. With close family and friends, and a beautiful and intimate courtyard ceremony with perfect balance of rustic and pretty details, Jacqueline and Matt tied the knot at the west loop's Prairie Production.
Simply beautiful and full of love.
I met Mindy and Brian through Meghan and Nate Bargar last year. And once we sat together to chat about wedding details, they revealed that the wedding ceremony would be at Midwest Buddhist Temple in Old Town. Having grown up Buddhist myself, I thought what a coincidence to meet Mindy and Brian. Turns out, the coincidence goes even further. Brian's mom went to Senn High School, where my parents also attended. After digging through a ton of 'do you know this persons', we got down to details for the wedding.
You just never know when and where you'll meet people. I met Chef Charles late last September and I have grown to respect his talent and craft with food. Actually, food would be an understatement. What I really mean is, this guy can cook. No, that doesn't sound just right either.
If you want attention to detail and a culinary experienced from a master chef, meet Charles.
That's more like it. I caught up with Chef Charles (and Chef Rick) in a West Loop loft to capture the magic in the making. I'm a sucker for his black truffle honey. I'd eat that on a piece of old lunch meat.
