Landon and Roxy have known each other for many years as they grew up in the same church. But it wasn’t until later in life when sparks flew that they realized they were perfect for each other. They were celebrating Roxy’s completion of graduate school and Landon’s new job with all of their family when […]

I was really excited to photograph Nicole and Tyler’s wedding because it’s the first I’ve done in Effingham, a change of pace is always a good thing and an opportunity to photograph new scenery, which by the way was as stunning as the bride and groom.

I have been so excited for Elissa and Jimmy’s wedding, not just because they were such a wonderful couple to photograph, but also the story of how they met in high school, went their separate ways, and then reconnected years later. “It was always you” was the theme and Elissa and Jimmy are proof that […]

I love Christmas. I love everything about it, the lights, the trees, the joy. When I met Natalie and Steve for the first time they told me about their love for the season and how it would play a role in their wedding day. I was super excited to capture it for them! It was […]

  Stuart and Hillary were the most stunning bride and groom, had so many loving people around them on their wedding day, and threw one heck of a party! I cannot tell you what an honor it was to photograph this loving pair at the most beautiful Pear Tree Estates, on what felt like one […]

2 There’s something extra special about the marriage of high school sweethearts. We all remember our first high school crush and for some of us we’re lucky enough to marry him or her. So I was super excited to capture that magic between Samantha and Troy on their wedding day. Samantha is the sweetest, most […]

Elissa and Jimmy are the cutest couple – I love their story so much! They are high school sweethearts who met over 9 years ago in the halls of Springfield High. They grew together, and spent some time apart pursuing their dreams – Jimmy in the U.S. Army at West Point and Elissa at the […]
