It was just days before NWI (Northwest Indiana) was going to reach temperatures that would make it colder, if only for 3 days, then Mount Everest. You read that right, NWI was colder than Mount Everest. At least for this day it was cold but not record breaking cold. I start every wedding the same, I arrive early and start working on the details. I use to hate shooting details. Now, they’re some of my most anticipated photos. I love them! After I connected with Emily I grabbed the wedding rings and began to shoot them as they were people themselves.Read More

Where do I begin? Parham and Laura are one of the most sweetest couples. Everything about them is amazing. They live and play hard, have great friends and love. For me this wedding was on the tail end of an already great wedding season. I was so happy to be able to spend the day with Laura & Parham and their amazing family!Read More
It was a Mid-September day. Clear skies and eighty degree weather, the humidity was in full force. the venue was Ogden Gardens, a beautiful place to get married. The day started at the bride’s Grandmother’s house, lushes backyard with bright greenery, and a super cool garage with a corvette! I began to get my detail shots of the dress, rings, shoes and the day went of from there.Read More
It was more than another wedding that I got to capture. It was a wedding for my dear friends Ian + Leana Wozniak. My heart was full all day. It isn't uncommon for me to fight back tears during someone else's wedding. This wedding, it was so difficult. I mean, I couldn't do my job with tears in my eyes...
I thought I would be stressed out, scared or overly anxious about filming my friends wedding. If anything I was at complete calm. It's special being able to give a gift like this one to an amazing couple that my wife and I love so very much. So congrats you two, you deserve all the happiness that comes your way!Read More
This wedding was literally magical. Everything from the bride and groom to their families. The day was filled with laughter, a ton of laughter and super fun memories. Adhnan's family flew in from all over the world. It really was a world-wide affair! We found ourselves in downtown Chicago at the Whyndam Hotel and Resort, it's right by the riverwalk across from the Trump Tower. there truly wasn't a bad spot to photograph this couple.Read More

I was only there for 4 hours. But that was more than enough to get the good stuff. The venue was FairOaks Farm in the middle part of Indiana. The weather was rather perfect. Earlier in the day it was hot and muggy, but it cleared up and became so comfortable. Wedding Films is a new service we're offering our Aguilar Photography Clients.
