Hanging out with Katie and Thomas was like hanging out with two of my friends! They were so much fun to be around, so laid back and I really enjoyed capturing them together. Like a lot of couples, the were a little unsure of being in front of the camera, but as the session went […]

I went to high school with Aaron and I always remember him being funny, kind and friendly to everyone! I was so excited when he reached out and asked me to photograph his wedding! His fiancé, Jaclyn was busy in Nurse Practitioner school when they got engaged so Aaron was helping with the wedding planning. […]

Jake and Amanda met while they were both working at the same bank branch. Jake is a talented golfer and he asked Amanda to his country club’s formal dinner and the rest is history! I have been waiting for them to get engaged ever since I used them as models for a styled shoot back […]

I was so excited to finally meet Mackenzie and Ryan for their engagement session! When Mackenzie first booked me for their wedding, she told me about how her and Ryan met in a small town bar and hit it off over their love for dogs. I just knew instantly that they were my people! I […]

I loved being a part of Katie and Logan’s wedding day! These two are so in love and so sweet together. They chose the beautiful Illini Country Club for their venue and it could not have been more perfect. Katie and Logan shared an emotional first look after they were both ready. Logan was brought […]

Valerie and Jake met on a blind date after matching on a dating app, but little did they know how much they would have in common or how quickly they would fall for each other! I think it was easy for both of them to say now that after their first date, they knew it […]

I loved being a part of Kristy and Derek’s wedding day! These two were so deserving of finally getting to have the beautiful wedding of their dreams. Kristy reached out to me back in 2020 when the world started to shut down that they would have to postpone their June wedding to December. But when […]

I have been lookin forward to Madison and Jake’s wedding for awhile now. It ended up being a warmer July day, but a nice breeze helped keep it mild! Madison has to be one of the most laid back brides I ever had. She and Jake were so calm and just enjoyed every part of […]

I loved working with Addie and Jacob for their engagement session! They are having a destination wedding next year, so it was important to them to have their engagement photos right where they feel most comfortable–at home. Jacob is a dentist and Addie a hygienist, so these two for sure win the “best smiles” award […]
