Courtney and Catherine - Chicago Wedding

Catherine and Courtney are on the opposite side of the moving spectrum from Julia and I. As we're gearing up for our move from Chicago to Seattle, Catherine and Courtney moved from Seattle to Chicago! Don't worry we didn't hold it against them. We still managed to get together to enjoy some of the finer brands on fried chicken around Chicago before their wedding! 

I almost forgot, I even photographed their wedding!

Chicago's First LGBTQ Senior Housing Center

This is a truly interesting Story, not only is it Chicago's first LGBTQ senior housing center, it's actually a Midwest first! On top of all of that it's being built into the old police station at 3600 N Halsted in Lakeview. I had the honor of not only photographing the groundbreaking of the project but also the first photos of the interior in the midsts of the reconstruction. The groundbreaking was really a touching event. There were plenty of Chicago politicians , but more importantly there were members of the community who spoke about how much this project means to them and the growing support of the LGBTQ community in Chicago. I can't say enough about how proud I am of Chicago for taking a step in the right direction for equality. I really hope that gay marriage is right around the corner for this state.
