Defining 78

View More: http://adamlesagephotography.pass.us/brittanyandmac

Almost a year ago I posted our engagement pictures taken by the ever amazing Adam LeSage Photography. It was supposed to be a sunny summer day in early September but as our luck would have it, it was freezing cold and pouring rain. Adam and his beautiful wife Catie (who had the day or so before our e-session found out she was pregnant!!) drove the long car ride down from Green Bay, Wisconsin to shoot us in Chicago. Even though we were all freezing cold and soaking wet, we had a blast with these two beautiful people and we are so honored they were able to document our love!

I found Adam through an old high school friend (Lindsay of Lindsay Flach Events) and even before Mac and I were engaged, I knew I wanted Adam as our photographer. What I loved about his work was that it was different from all of the other engagement and wedding pictures I have seen before. If you have picked up anything while reading this blog you have probably figured out that I’m not a cookie cutter kind of gal so when it came to engagement and wedding pictures, I didn’t want cookie cutter. I wanted pictures that were a piece of art and everything that Adam creates and touches is art. The most beautiful unique piece of art.

In between our engagement session and our wedding Adam and his very close friend who is also an incredible photographer, Shana of Be Gallery, merged together to create one incredible company called Defining78. Not a single ounce of artistry was lost when the merge happened as both Adam and Shana have the same photography styles, and what was created was one hell of a force to be reckoned with!

The day of our wedding both Adam and Shana shot our day and what I loved about that was getting two perspectives of each moment. August 29, 2015 was such a blur (I’m surprised I’ve been able to recollect the day well enough to write not one but four blog posts about it) and we are so lucky to have such amazing memories and pictures shot by Defining78.

This duo is pure brilliance! As I said before, their work is a piece of art and if you are looking for a photographer I cannot recommend this company enough. Not only will your wedding pictures stand out from all the rest (take a look at the alley pictures we took in the rain at the end of the post – swoon!) but you will have the honor to work with a whole team of amazing people. Defining78 is able to travel wherever your wedding is so please consider this beautiful company if you are planning a wedding. Your pictures will be incredibly unique PLUS you will get life long friends to boot!

Please enjoy this very last post in this F Bombs Wedding segment and thank you so much for reading along. (Ok, so I lied, next week I’m sharing our wedding video but after that I’m DONE, I swear!!) To Adam, Shana, and the whole Defining78 team, from the bottom of our hearts thank you. Thank you for creating magic and giving us the most precious and beautiful memories of the best day of our lives.

PS…It of course rained our entire wedding day so an extra special thank you to Adam for YET AGAIN standing out in the rain and cold to take our pictures. We seriously owe you a warm alcoholic beverage the next time we are in Green Bay!
