I am honored to have been asked to photograph this amazing couple! We had scheduled their session for a couple weeks before but had to reschedule due to all the rain we got! However, I think it all worked out perfectly because we were blessed with a GORGEOUS spring day! We started off their session in their field beside their house. We then went down the road to Brody's grandparents house and got some pictures with the cool old barns there! I LOVED the old sheep barn (see picture above!). Then we finished off with some pictures at Dolan Lake. Here are some sneak peeks of their session... :)
I had the honor of photographing this sweet couple over the weekend! They braved the cold so we could get some adorable pictures. They are so sweet together - Alexas just kept smiling through the whole session! And they brought their adorable puppies too (I love critters!). Here are some highlights from their session... :)
I had the honor of photographing this beautiful couple last weekend. These two are naturals in front of the camera and made my job so easy. They are so easy going, and you can tell they are just crazy about each other. It was such a perfect day when we shot their pictures. The trees had just started to turn, and we finally got a day that actually felt like fall. I am already so excited about shooting their wedding next fall! Kelsi was telling me some of their ideas and colors - it all sounds so gorgeous!! Here are some highlights from their session... :)
I had a great time over the weekend taking Colton and Alyssa's engagement pictures. They were so fun to work with, and they made my job super easy! Plus they brought along their sweet little dog - Sadie - who got to be in some pictures too! It turned out to be a beautiful day - a little windy but a beautiful day nonetheless (you never know with March in Southern Illinois lol). I am so excited about photographing their wedding next month!! Here are some highlights of their session... :)
I had a blast photographing Kara & Joey's engagement session!! These two are easy to work with and you can tell they are just crazy about each other. I loved how excited they were!! We'd take a few pictures and Kara smiling would say "This is so exciting!" She is so cute and is going to make a gorgeous bride! I am so excited about their wedding next month (my first winter wedding!!). Here are some of my favorites from their session... :)
I got to photograph this sweet couple's engagement session on Saturday morning!! What a great way to start my day! It was warm, but a beautiful day nonetheless. The couple decided to meet out at Dolan's Lake. We walked all over the grounds looking for perfect picture spots (which is not a hard thing to do - soooo many pretty spots out there!). Here are some highlights from their session... :)
Eeek what a wonderful Saturday evening!! Beautiful weather (a little cool but a beautiful spring day none-the-less), awesome light and one of the sweetest couples I know as my subjects! When Aribi contacted me a few months ago about photographing her wedding/engagement session I was so excited and honored to have been asked to capture these memories for her and Chris. The beautiful bride-to-be was one of my best friends in high school, and I couldn't be more happy for her for finding a wonderful guy like Chris. He is such a sweetheart, and you can tell these two are just crazy about each other. I had a blast at their photo-shoot! These two were so much fun to photograph - we talked non-stop and laughed a lot! Luckily Aribi is used to my randomness lol... I'm definitely having a hard time picking my favorites for this post so I'm going to include several. Oh my goodness - can I be any more excited about their wedding next month!? :)

I had a blast hanging out with these two over the weekend. It was a beautiful day (68 degrees in January!), an awesome location (great job Caleb!), and most importantly a couple that is absolutely crazy about each other!
I can't wait to document their special day as they become husband and wife in May!! :)
I had a blast taking pictures with this sweet couple! It was so hot out that day, but we were still able to get some great pictures. I wish these two all the best as they start out this next chapter of their lives together, and I am so glad I'll get to be a part of their special day! I can't wait until their wedding in October! :)
