I just knew from the get-go that Aimee and Kyle were going to be a blast to work with. I photographed Kyle’s step-brother’s wedding (who is also married to one of my amazing second shooters, Jordan) and Kyle was a complete riot to have around! His fiance, Aimee is equally as funny and truly puts […]

What an amazing day Cody and Alyssa had! They seriously could not have picked a more beautiful October day for their wedding and even though they had to cut their guest list a bit due to restrictions, it turned out absolutely perfect! Cody and Alyssa met online when Cody mustered up the courage to message […]

Hanging out with Jessi and John was like hanging out with two old friends! They are the kind of people that welcome you with huge smiles and a cooler of cold ones haha! Jessi told me beforehand that I would have my work cut out for me since John towers about a foot and a […]

I have been looking forward to Kristi and Nick’s wedding day for a long time! These two have been my friends for a few years now and I was so excited when they got engaged! We had quite the windy day for Kristi and Nick’s big day, but neither of them let it bother them […]

I have known Lanie for awhile now and I have always admired her sweet attitude about everything and how she always has a huge smile on her face. When I got to meet Ryan I instantly knew they were perfect for each other because his smile never seemed to leave his face either. These two […]

Carmen and Shannon had the most beautiful, intimate wedding day. They were surrounded by their closest friends and family and even though they had to make some cuts and do things differently, I think it turned out so special and so perfect! Carmen got to spend the morning relaxing with the girls in her life […]

I got the enormous honor of photographing Sam and Dylan’s engagement back in the Summer when Dylan’s mom reached out to me and asked me if I would hide in the bushes at Washington Park to capture it. I think my heart was racing as fast as Dylan’s was because I wanted so badly for […]

Jake is a friend of Dustin’s and earlier this year I got to meet his girlfriend (at the time), Madison. She was so sweet and down-to-Earth. I was so excited when I saw her and Jake got engaged and even more excited when she reached out to ask me to be their photographer! Jake and […]

I have known Ashley for a very long time and I have gotten to see her over the years for her twin sister’s photo sessions where she helps to wrangle her niece! Ashley has a heart for helping and she is always around to lend a hand. I was so excited for her to finally […]

Rob and Amanda are such a sweet couple! I have been looking forward to their wedding day for a long time. I got to travel up to Aurora, IL to the gorgeous Stonebridge Country Club to capture them saying “I do”. Amanda was surrounded by so much love in the morning. Her and all her […]
