I looked forward to Shannon & Sam’s wedding day for so long. It wasn’t because it was my last wedding of 2019 or because of the incredible vendor team I was a part of. I was so excited for this day because I couldn’t wait to play a part in Shannon & Sam’s love story. […]

I have this theory: awkward couples don’t exist. No really. I don’t believe there is such a thing as an awkward couple. You & your significant other are exactly who you are supposed to be—together & individually. In fact, often times, it’s the quirks that I believe make you two so perfect. When Courtney & […]

Katrina & Mark’s wedding day was the cherry on top of an incredible stretch of fall weddings! From the moment we arrived, there was a sense of peace embodied by contagious joy—the look on Mark’s face when he saw his bride for the first time says it all. I don’t think I will ever forget […]

Honestly, Elissa & Grant were a dream to photograph & I loved spending my Saturday morning with them. Just from our short time together, it is so evident how deeply they care for one another…even […]

The wind may have blown my bride’s veil off of her head as soon as she began her walk down the aisle, but that may have been the only fluke for Andrea & Max’s day. In fact, as I think back on this rural barn wedding, only the words “so much fun” come to mind! […]

Mary Rose & Tyler have lived a real-life fairytale & my hopeless romantic heart is in a puddle every time I hear their story. In short, the two met while play Prince Charming & Cinderella in a local theater production back in 2015. If their love story wasn’t meant to be, I don’t know what […]

For most people, the month of October means trips to apple orchards, decorating your home with pumpkins, & flannel everything. But for photographers in the midwest, October means busy season! While it never gets easier to be away from home, I think I have enjoyed this crazy month more than usual. Not only do I […]

For as long as I have been photographing weddings, every wedding is still unique. For all you movie buffs, it truly is like a box of chocolates—you never know what you’re going to get (in the best way, of course)! Hannah & Matt’s rural winery wedding had a moment I have never experienced before & […]

Friday brought extreme rainfall to central Illinois, but the soggy ground did not spoil Becca & Mike’s celebration on Saturday. Truly, not much mattered to these two—they just wanted to be married. I remember Becca saying multiple times throughout the day, “I can’t believe it’s finally here!” I can honestly say I shared in the […]

I am an advocate for fun, smooth-running wedding days. Sure, maybe I turn a little *extra* Type A in order to see that happen, but it is totally worth it—especially when a wedding day is as enjoyable as Katie & Matt’s. How do I know this? It poured rain after their ceremony during bride & […]
