Lauren and Aaron
Wedding Photography at Pinstripes Barrington IL location

I first met Lauren at her friend’s wedding. She had given a really cool speech for Laura and Derek’s wedding in Woodstock and it was great to see her again with the love of her life. The couple lives in Colorado, so they wanted something small to celebrate their wedding. They had decided to go to Pinstripes in Barrington to host their wedding reception, which so happens to be one of my favorite locations here in Chicago land area. We shot another beautiful wedding reception at the Pinstripe location just last year with Mindy and Tom.

We thought this was a great time to sneak the couple away into the bowling area for some fun wedding photos at the Pinstripes venue.

We moved the photo session outside after we had gotten a couple of fun shots of the newly weds at the bowling alley.

birthday and wedding

While we were photographing the couple, a little girl was curious about all the action the couple was getting and came wondering around to photo bomb them! It was very sweet and cute. It turned out that it was her birthday too!
