I adored being a part of Ashley and David’s wedding day! It was truly one of the most laid back, fun celebrations and I got to capture it right alongside my video partner, Lydia! Ashley and David actually went to the same high school, but didn’t really know each other. It wasn’t until after high […]

Brandi & Bryce have been clients/friends of mine for a couple of years and I got to capture their proposal last year!

I absolutely loved seeing Alexis and Brady again for a second engagement session! Alexis really loved the winter look in their first set of engagement photos, but she wanted to capture her and Brady in the summer as well on her family farms in Nokomis, IL. I had so much fun hanging with them again and capturing […]

I photographed Kristen’s senior photos back in 2015 and I was so excited when she reached out to tell me she had gotten engaged! She is such a kind and beautiful person and I was so happy to hear how great she was doing and how excited she was to marry Cam! I couldn’t wait […]

Chelsea and Dale planned one heck of a wedding and looked absolutely flawless throughout it all!

I absolutely loved getting to meet with Paige and Travis for their engagement session! We hit it off from the moment we met and I could have talked to them all night long.
