The celebration energy that people have during a wedding simply cannot happen any other time. I get to be part of the celebration by helping people look their very best for the images I capture. The positive feedback I get from the people I photography is genuinely heartwarming. I completely enjoy being part of the celebrate of two people who want to spend the rest of their lives together."

About Us


About Us


 
 

STEVE EWERT

Portrait Photographer

As the man behind the Ultimate Photo Booth, Steve loves the celebratory and creative energy that comes only from a wedding.

While designing Greenhouse Loft as the ideal wedding and photography space, Steve also created the only studio dedicated to photo booth portraits. Three decades of commercial photography experience and a 22 foot grey wall means shooting large groups and intimate portraits are both a breeze. Gorgeous 19th century hardwood floors, a vintage hat collection, an archive of favorite portraits, toy trucks and midcentury furniture—the space is unlike anything else out there.

Favorite wedding moment:
When the celebration is in full gear and the Ultimate Photo Booth is humming with creative energy. It’s just one great shot after another.

Discovered photography:
The first time Steve picked up a camera was in his 4th year of engineering school at the University of Kansas. While he got a degree in Mechanical Engineering, it was a post-college trip through Europe and Africa with a writer friend from school producing magazine articles that set his course on a career in photography.

Beyond photography:
With early roots in Logan Square, Steve and his family—wife Ilinka, sons Nikolai and Milos and their rescue dog Lola—have called an Oak Park Victorian home for nearly two decades. A family favorite vacation is Ephraim, a small town in Door County MI. Never one to be far from a camera, Steve’s passion projects include a sibling portrait series and a series of creative people and their words.

 

 
 

JAMIE DAVIS

Documentary Photographer

As the documentary photographer for your wedding day at Greenhouse Loft, Jamie shoots with an eye towards sincerity, emotion, expression and storytelling.

With over 10 years of photography and event planning experience, Jamie brings a unique perspective and skill set to wedding photography. Greenhouse Loft provides an opportunity for her to get to know a couple through the planning of their wedding day and then document those joyful hours as their life together starts. The space itself continually renews and inspires her, and Jamie knows the best angles to shoot in the room to capture the magic.

Favorite wedding moment:
When a couple meets at the end of the aisle. It’s electric and magic every time.

Discovered photography:
Jamie grew up watching her mom shoot from behind a CanonAE1. She went on to get her BA in photography from Columbia College Chicago.

Beyond photography:
A sustainability advocate, Jamie’s active in the Green Wedding Alliance and is proud to have created one of the premier venues in Chicago that hosts sustainable and low waste events. Outside her work, Jamie is a connoisseur of fine wine and cheese and a fan of a great sandwich. She lives in Logan Square with her husband, second shooter Eric Davis, and their two cats.

Eric DAVIS

Documentary Photographer

As the second documentary shooter, Eric provides a record of moments otherwise missed.

Eric works to capture a wedding unfolding in the same way your eyes see it. He loves the feelings of the different phases of a wedding—the nervous energy of groomsmen getting ready, a couple having a moment together around the town, the sacred quiet of the ceremony and the fun of the celebration. Having a front row to witness and then help preserve those memories is a great privilege.

Favorite wedding moment:
The dancing. It’s a big day with a lot going on. After the vows and the toasts and ceremony, people relax and come alive in a whole new way.

Discovered photography:
Eric’s father was a photography enthusiast who brought a few cameras and lenses on all their family trips. Eric started taking photo classes, using his dad’s 35mm, during summer break while studying Anthropology and English at University of Michigan.

Beyond photography:
Ask to see Eric’s list of restaurants he wants to try and old favorites. A griller and avid gardener, he tends tomatoes, herbs and strawberries at the Logan Square home he share with Jamie. Eric is not only Jamie’s husband but her favorite #firstlookstandin.
