Wedding Photography Troy, NY :: Erinn + Eric

The last wedding of 2017 for us, and what a way to end it. As I reflect on 2017, I’m just blown away by how the year went. Our wedding season started in Florida and ended in New York. I’m thinking 2018 needs to take us to the southwestern and northwestern part of the States. Maybe Hawaii and Alaska?! I …

Year in Review: 2017

What an amazing year 2017 has been. It’s been a year of growth, revelation, and risks. And the end of every year, I like to reflect on the past year at some things I’ve learned about myself as a photographer, the good and the bad. We can all do better in every aspect of life, right? I know that most …

Arboretum Champaign, IL Wedding Pictures :: Katy + Ben

One session we get asked about quite frequently with weddings is our day after session. Sometimes, I believe it may be because of the name, while the name says “day after,” it’s never really the day following the wedding. Usually, it’s around two weeks later, but day after sounds better than a two-week-after session, am I right? Katy and Ben …

Fairview Heights, IL Wedding Photographer :: Kimmy + Chris

Our last wedding before a five-week break and I could not ask for a better wedding to go into the break with. Whether it’s the end of the wedding season or going into a break, there’s something about ending with a bang. Kimmy and Chris’ wedding was just that, too! The day was perfect, the timeline was very open and …

A Fair Barn Salem, IL Wedding Photography :: Laura + Jeremy

After meeting with Laura and Jeremy and learning about their film background I was pretty excited to work with them! Not only because we had some shared interests, but because they were planning their wedding around the optimal time for outdoor pictures! This never happens, unless of course, it’s a photographer getting married. Known as the “golden hour” there is …

Effingham, IL Wedding Photographer :: Ashley + Derek

Weddings where this is a chance of rain, we always try to get what we can prior to the ceremony so not to push our luck with the weather. On Ashley and Derek’s wedding day, the weather was saying rain during the couple of hours we had for outdoor pictures between the ceremony and reception. Before and After those times, …

Effingham, IL Wedding Photography :: Kayla + Jeff

We did Kayla and Jeff’s second engagement session not too long ago and just weeks before the wedding we finalized a design for their engagement album. Fortunately, I was able to get the able produced and shipped before their big day and the Friday before, I received it. It’s not too often that I deliver an engagement album at a …

School Pictures

It’s that time of year for school pictures, and what better way to do school pictures than to do pictures in a school? An old school for that matter! My niece and Nephew had their school pictures taken, and for the sake of traditionalism, those pictures are nice and all, but we are pulling away from traditional pretty quickly. I’ve …

Charleston, IL Wedding Photography :: Katy + Ben

Nothing like an oddly warm (or rather, hot) day for a Fall wedding. But that didn’t matter too much, because regardless of the temperature outside, as long as it’s not raining, it’s a good day for a wedding. Well, okay, technically a humid 120-degree or negative 20-degree day would be pretty brutal, but you get my point, right? The wedding …
