Congratulations Megan and Gus!

Andrew and Jacy by Michael Durr

It was a beautiful day at Morton Arboretum for Andrew and Jacy's wedding. Between the weather, venue and amazing couple it was hard not to get great shots. It was a pleasure to be a part of their big day. Congratulations Andrew and Jacy!

Ronnie and Stephanie by Michael Durr

Ronnie and Stephanie had an an amazing winter wedding at County Line Orchard in Portage, IN. Having know Stephanie and Ronnie for  a few years now I was looking forward to shooting their special day. I love that I heard a lot of Eric Church and had the opportunity to eat some BBQ and Papa Johns between shots. I wish them both the best of luck in the future and I am happy to call them both my friends.

Congratulations!

World Champions by Michael Durr

Someday has finally arrived. The Chicago Cubs are the World Series Champions. Throughout my life, I have gone through ups and downs with the sport of baseball. I played t-ball as a young kid and continued playing for a while after that. However, growing up in the era of Michael Jordan, basketball quickly stole my attention. I played basketball in grade school and into high school. In respect to baseball, I guess I have always been somewhat of a bandwagon fan. I remember the days of Andre Dawson and Ryan Sandberg. I remember shifting my attention to the White Sox during the years of the Big Hurt and then shifted back to follow the Sammy Sosa and Mark McGuire home run race. I also remember being in college when the infamous Bartman game happened. There was an outdoor watch party down the street and I remember on my way home a door came flying off a balcony. It was in that moment I realized that a Cubs World Series would be absolutely insane.

After 108 years of waiting.

It didn't disappoint.

This is the year.
