• 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.

Harold, in(SP)ired in Chicago!

We are all in varying forms of transition. Harold here, my friend, who, like me, transplanted here from Boston, will be receiving his Ph.D. in materials sciences engineering soon. Whatever that means for his future – whether he stays in Chicago or goes to another city, we do not know. However, we do know that Harold is a man of curiosity, a plethora of interests that include swing dancing and good food and free summer events in Millennium Park. We planned to incorporate this sense of time, as well as a good sense of self and perspective through the use of Chicago’s architecture. Enjoy! And wish Harold good luck as he is down to the wire in his dissertation!

We began in downtown Chicago
