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 […]

Would you have guessed this session happened at sunrise & it was so cold you could see your own breath? 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 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 & […]

My time with Anna & Luke at their engagement session was so fun. With the amazing September evening sky overhead, I loved laughing & getting to know these two on Saturday evening. When we weren’t chatting, you could hear the faint sound of the local restaurant’s band playing—talk about the perfect setting for a session! […]

It has always been a quiet dream of mine to watch a once Lauren Anderson Senior become a Lauren Anderson Bride, so when Sydney’s mom told me wedding bells are on the horizon, I was thrilled (while feeling slightly old)! It is always so exciting to walk with my clients through their major life events, […]
