“Congratulations Justin + Elisha and thank you in selecting us as your Chicago wedding photographers. Justin and Elisha, along with family, friends and especially the signature style and highly detailed organization of Anthony from Liven It Up Events, put together a modern and elegant wedding ceremony and a reception celebration which rolled out with artistry + style.


Justin + Elisha’s outdoor Chicago ceremony and wedding reception both took place at the lush Ivy Room at Tree Studios which is located in the heart of downtown Chicago. The Ivy Room’s captivating, outdoor ceremony space is the perfect place for the making of a memorable and fairytale wedding. And this leaf filled courtyard space doubled for J+E after the ceremony, as the picture perfect, green lush ivy garden for the cocktail hour. The reception space and connected indoor studio at the Ivy Room was decorated with the wedding stylings and detailed touches of fusia lighting, amazing floral centerpieces and environmental design details as appointed by the fantabulous Chicago event firm of Kehoe Designs in combination Anthony from Liven It Up Events.


Wanting to incorporating plenty of time for photos together before the wedding day events began was a must for J+E. So after meeting Elisha and her bridesmaids at the Chicago Allerton Hotel and Justin and his groomsmen at the James Hotel ( both Chicago hotels are modern and stylish and located within walking distance of Michigan Avenue and the couples’s River North Chicago wedding venue, The Ivy Room ), we planned for an early afternoon meeting time and a “first glance” big reveal of Elisha sneaking up upon Justin at Chicago’s Olive Park. The groomsmen and bridesmaids were close by to witness these moments and of course, our cameras captured smiles, love and excitement between J+E. The park was a gorgeous setting located both by the Lake and overlooking the Magnificent Mile Chicago skyline.


We squeezed in just enough time for photos in the venue’s ivy courtyard before the ceremony began, plus two more Downtown Chicago stops beyond the nature park. J+E requested to incorporate their bridal party in many of the pictures, so we had fun putting together some creative poses and roaming the City in the limo with everyone. What a great group of friends + family! As you can see, they were excited to climb bridges, ladders, fire escapes and up for standing in the middle of Michigan Avenue, so yes we incorporated a little urban adventure into their day. During the reception, DJ Spencer from Style Matters was seriously rocking the night… the bridal party and guests were loving the music and he brought a style that kept the crowd moving. We love the in-action and photojournalistic dance floor photos. And of what the perfect ending, to a perfect day… a little fireworks display at the end of the night.


Justin + Elisha we had a great time photographing the events of your May wedding day including your emotional ceremony in the ivy filled garden, and beautifully decorated indoor reception studio space of The Ivy Room. We wish you both all the happiness in the world. Hope you are enjoying the newly wedded life and congratulations again Elisha in all your recent successes. After returning from the honeymoon in Cabo, we loved reading your excitement of going from a wedding gown, to your cap and gown! What an exciting couple of months May and June have been from the excitement of a wedding, graduation, and becoming officially an MD. Congrats and well wishes to you both Elisha and Justin in building your lives together as husband and wife!”

“Above is a preview to our latest unique and urban Chicago engagement photography session we created this week for Justin + Elisha. J+E were great and super easy to work with, as they had SOOO much chemistry! It was cute. ♥ Perhaps that’s because J+E are working with a long distance relationship, so when they are around each other they can’t help but smile and flirt with each other.


This past Winter when we first met with Justin and Elisha, Justin was in Chicago only for short visit taking a long weekend to finalize the details of their Spring Chicago wedding. Justin lives on the East Coast and works on an Air Force base in Washington D.C. ( He’s working on secret stuff helping to protect the us from the bad guys — nuff said. ) Elisha has an equally interesting career and has travelled to many countries completing medical research and educating. Currently finishing up her last few years as a med student, she will soon be an anesthesiologist. At one point during the night… Ryan and I looked at each other and felt overwhelmed by the serious accomplishments of these two — truly amazing people.


Prior to us meeting, Elisha emailed us saying she fell in love with our “emotionally provocative and intense wedding photography” style. And when discussing their engagement session, the really liked several of our past Chicago engagement couple’s shoots … but especially loved last November’s industrial and high-fashion engagement photo session with Derek + Jorie … so with that in mind, we brought some of those M+M concepts to their session.


Thanks Justin and Elisha in venturing around the City with us stopping at a few, new shooting locations. We were excited to hear that after meeting with seven other wedding photographers you choose Miller + Miller! J+E enjoy the final days of your planning and we’ll see you again soon! We can’t wait to hear which pic you decide is your favorite.”


Justin + Elisha’s Chicago May wedding is at The Ivy Room at Tree Studios just off of Michigan Avenue in River North, Chicago. We’re looking forward to it! In addition, we can hardly wait to see the anticipated stylings and details to J+E’s decor, lighting, and floral details to come from the Chicago event firm of Kehoe Designs.
