CENTRAL ILLINOIS ELEGANT BLACK TIE FALL WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY Matthew & Cassandra | Married

She cleared her throat and swallowed hard…I’m pretty sure she was nervous even though a natural at the mic (like her daddy, which was obvious from his toast!).  I think it’s because no matter how much you do or don’t love public speaking…summarizing your relationship with your Irish twin (and look alike!) sister and her […]

Class of 2019 Senior Central Illinois Photographer Mackenzy | Class of 2019

Oh my goodness where to begin with this beautiful girl.  When we decided to take on a lot less this year with a new baby, senior sessions were one of the types of sessions we decided not to book. Most of the kids I had taught–which are the seniors I love photographing– had graduated, and it just […]

St Louis Missouri Forest Park Engagement Photography Lauren + Adam | Promised

Talk about a classy couple and engagement session, this is it!!!  Lauren contacted me shortly after her and Adam’s engagement in Italy, and I immediately knew we would get along well.  She is both easy going and easy to talk to, and I couldn’t wait to get to meet them.  And right when that happened, I felt […]

ERIN’S PAVILION PARK BLUSH AND NEUTRAL FALL WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY Blake & Katie | Married

It is hard to even know where to begin on this gorgeous wedding day.  I could talk about how the weather was supposed to be pretty much disastrous, and then by the time we were ready it sprinkled for a few minutes and then out of nowhere the sun came out for the REST of […]

ERIN’S PAVILION FALL GLAMOROUS BURGUNDY WEDDING Dominic & Amanda | Married

Fall has officially begun, and this wedding was the perfect hello to it!  Warm, fall colors and textures, beautiful crisp weather (with just the right amount of warmth and sun)…it was all just ideal! But the thing that struck me the most over and over again at this wedding was the people.  We were so warmly […]

I can’t believe sweet baby J is more than 8 months old!!!  I have had so much fun with this one because he is just a couple of weeks older than our sweet baby, and it is so fun to see the changes that are happening at home reflected in this sweet family of 5!  At […]

SPRINGFIELD ISLAND BAY YACHT CLUB FALL WEDDING Cory & Taylor | Married

Their lives have been intertwined since she was only 14 and they went to high school together (but were just acquaintances).  They performed around each other, each extremely talented and musical, and always knew of each other.  His best friend married her sister.  They had many similar friends and interests.  And years later, once she […]
