• Welcome to the website of wedding photographer Saavedra Photography My mission is to empower people through photography to love themselves and confidently see the beauty that I see in them.

Emma and Jason, Engaged! My first Chicago couple

When Emma and Jason first met each other, it wasn’t pretty – they literally ran into each other during a soccer game. Well, it happened more than once, and the rest is history. Emma, who is a fellow Harvard alum, is currently studying a bunch of cool stuff in London as a Marshall Scholar (and incidentally knows one of my good friends from high school, hi Kuong!) while Jason is continuing his Ph.D. in physics at Harvard. Jason’s roots are in Chicago. So in a way these two encompass my two cities!

This also marks the debut of my 2011 couples – Emma and Jason are my very first booked Chicago wedding, I really look forward to photographing them next fall at the Signature Room at the John Hancock Tower in downtown Chicago!

We chose the De Cordova sculpture park in Lincoln, MA for their engagement session – we wanted a place where we could have lots of fun!
