Whenever I meet with someone for the first time, it can be hard to find the words to explain my process; how I shoot and my reasoning behind WHY I choose to create art in a certain way. But Erin and Steve just got it immediately from looking at my work. I knew we were a perfect fit.
Fast forward about a year and I had the privilege of documenting their wedding day and, woah, it was definitely one to remember! We met Erin just as she was finishing getting ready and then headed over to City Hall to capture the first look with Steve. From the moment they saw each other they were so over-joyed and genuinely so excited - I don't think either of them stopped smiling all day long!
After City Hall, we stopped at Gallagher Pier, the Old First Ward, and the Outer Harbor for some portraits before the ceremony. It was raining on and off throughout the afternoon but we managed to escape it entirely!
Close to 300 of their closest friends and family came to celebrate their love at Rich's atrium and I am so happy to have been a part of it. Here are some of my favorite images from The Bonaccis big day...
