Kelsie + Joe // Effingham, IL Wedding Photography

Hello October! Seems like we were just welcoming in September, then I blinked, and all of a sudden it’s October. This was our second wedding to have a ceremony and reception hosted at the Thelma Keller Convention Center in Effingham, IL. The first one was absolutely perfect, and with the experience we’ve had working with Keller in the past, we knew this one wouldn’t be any different. Not only was it the perfect venue for Kelsie and Joe, but it was the perfect day too! A cool 70 degree day with plenty of sunshine, it created for some pretty amazing pictures out at Lake Sara as we worked with the wedding party.

With our schedule of their wedding day, we were able to capture everything prior to the wedding. This allowed a pretty smooth transition into the reception time where as usual the Keller staff ensured the guests and wedding party had a tremendous experience during the celebration. Kelsie and Joe had such fun personalities and it was an absolute joy to photograph their big day and to capture the love they have for one another. We had a great time working with some new methods of photographing to help create some pretty unique imagery, whether it was a little extra flash during the prep time, or a different way of lighting some of their details, overall the day was perfect, the venue was perfect, and Kelsie and Joe were more than perfect as a couple! We feel so honored to have had the opportunity to work with them and capture the moments of their wedding day.
