A few weeks ago we had the absolute joy of capturing local Chicago artist Anna Murphy in action as she worked on a mural outside of Soho House Chicago in the West Loop. Her attention to detail is absolutely breathtaking, and it was fascinating to watch her work. Then we got to tour her studio and snap a few shots of her in her element. Needless to say we have loved getting to know Anna as a person and as an artist. Go follow her on instagram to see what she is working on @annapmurphy
Spring has arrived, and with it Spring engagement sessions! With it comes a level of excitement for Chicagoans anticipating warm weather. We have waded through negative temperatures and feet of snow, and now we are ready to embrace flower buds, green trees, and drinks on the patio.
Still a little chilly outside? No problem. Sneak into a sweet wine bar or your favorite neighborhood pub to warm up! We love visiting your favorite places because we can really capture your story as authentically as possible!
Chicago provides so many memorable spots to capture a sweet moment! If you’re feeling especially brave climb up on the LaSalle St bridge so we can capture you framed by the gorgeous Chicago skyline.
The most important part of any engagement session is having fun! As cheesy as it sounds your friends and family don’t want to see you stiff as a board. You’re in love! Get silly and let your personalities jump off an image. That way when you send out those Holiday cards and engagement announcements those who know you best can say “Oh that is so you!”
Spring is here, and we’re reminiscing on this gorgeous April wedding from last year! Maureen and Dave had the sweetest Spring wedding! This couple and their crew was so adventurous and fun. We absolutely adored their willingness to adventure outside in the rain to get some amazing shots on Kinzie Street Bridge.
The proof is in the photographs. A couple in love is such a magical thing. We couldnt be more thrilled with how Kaitlyn + Nathans photos turned out. Their love is magnetic and we were lucky enough to capture every sweet moment!
Who runs the world? That’s right! Girls. We had a blast putting together some sweet ideas for a Galentines Day brunch. We had charcuterie boards galore, gorgeous heart shaped sugar cookies, and chocolate covered strawberries. What more could you ask for? Mimosas, duh! We hope you all celebrate the love you have for your friends just as much as you celebrate with your boo this year!
Here we have Nick Gerber’s favorites of 2018! We are so lucky to have Nick as a part of the Gerber & Scarpelli team, with such an incredible eye for candid moments and a passion for creativity. 2019 is a big year for Nick as he welcomes another member to his family in March, and Gerber & Scarpelli welcomes another budding photographer to their crew. We can’t wait for all that is to come!
Anna + Jacob were married at St Patricks Church followed by a drive around the city to capture the beautiful couple and their wedding party! Their reception was nothing short of gorgeous located in the historical Harold Washington Library.
Co-owner of Gerber & Scarpelli, Kurt Gerber, shares with us some of his favorite moments from 2018. What a wonderful year it was! Looking forward to another year of capturing cityscape proposals, wedding day popsicles, and moments of pure unedited joy.
Without further ado, Belen Aquino’s Best of 2018! When Belen isn’t taking photographs you can find her spending time with her family, cooking up incredible recipes for her friends, and traveling around the world! Belen has been a part of the G+S team for over seventeen years, and we couldn’t feel luckier to have her!
Our final collaboration of 2018 with Clover Events and friends! Here is all of your sparkly New Years Eve dreams come true complete with a fabulous wall of balloons! We had so much fun doing a monthly tablescape with Clover Events and we can’t wait to show you what we have up our sleeve for 2019!
