Chicago

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.

Ami and JM by Michael Durr

It was an absolutely incredible day for a wedding in Chicago. The location at 190 S Lasalle was incredibly elegant and a lot of fun to shoot in. It's not every day you can photography a couple in front of a window with the setting sun and Sears Tower in the background. Ami and JM are a perfect match. It was an honor to capture their special day and I wish them health and happiness in the future.
