I’m going to try and contain my excitement as much as possible with this blog post to keep it relatively short and readable so that you can get on to the images. Oh my, what a fun day this was. Kierstyn and Chase could not have been any more fun to work with, and with…

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,…

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…

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…

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….

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…

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…

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…

This weather has just been amazing lately. What a perfect day we had for Monica and Matt’s wedding. Their wedding took me to a new location that I’ve not been to before; Pillars Event Center in Taylorville, IL. This location is an old Baptist Church that has been remodeled into a complete wedding event center….

Back in the photo/video saddle with Amber and Kyle’s country wedding. Get the pun? Saddle… Country… it makes more sense once you see the pictures and see the way Amber approached the aisle. What a perfect day for a wedding. It’s early September and I hardly sweat during their big day. I’ll take this weather…

I’m sure I sound like a broken record if you read through many of my wedding blogs from this year, but I’m convinced that this year is just the year of smooth weddings! For the most part, every wedding has been so smooth. Very few hiccups, and very few delays. Not only are these weddings…

Once in a while, there will be a wedding or two that kind of just pop up on our schedule. Ashley and Calen’s wedding was that way. About a month before the big day, I received a message from Calen asking if I had the day available. I LOVE these weddings when I have them…

Who else is loving this summer weather?! Holy cow! It’s nice. It’s amazing just how much of a workout wedding photography can be, especially considering the most “workout” we do as photographers is a squat with a five-pound camera and lens. HA! Every year, I look at July and August and try to mentally prepare…

Last year, I had the opportunity of working with Brad and Casey to do their family pictures. A short time later, I received a message from Casey that they had a wedding date and wanted me to photograph their ceremony. As I mentioned in one of my previous blogs, recently I’ve been in the process…

On my Facebook history notifications I’ve been seeing the engagement pictures I shared of Rachel and Blake. Has it really been a year already since we did their pictures? Time has gone by way too quickly! The big day is here, and what a perfect day we had for pictures. Not only was the weather perfect,…

It’s our first warm wedding of the year! At least, that’s what the weather channel predicted. So I was mentally preparing myself to sweat. Fortunately, the sweat never really came! We had a great day for Nikki and Jon’s wedding day. Having the opportunity to do wedding photography is such a huge honor, and with…

All week it has been extremely nice, warm but I can’t complain, at least it’s been consistent, no more of this 40-degree weather one day, 80 degrees the next. Anyway, while it’s been nice all week, it was soon to come to an end and the forecast was showing rain, wind, and possibly severe storms…

We already had our first wedding this year with Brittany and Joe’s Treasure Island, FL wedding, however, for the start of the bulk of our “wedding season,” Ashley and Luke kicked things off. What a perfect day we had too. A nice warm, sunny Spring day, this type of weather on top of a wedding makes…

It’s a new year, a new season, and this means it’s a great time for updated family pictures. Every year brings change, not just in the seasons, or new goals, but a change in appearance or in height when it comes to kids. My sister and brother-in-law booked their session to capture this change and…

We are very hands-on when it comes to wedding day timelines, because after years of photographing weddings, we have seen the good, the bad and the ugly when it comes to a timeline. This is your big day, and it may be the only time you’ve been the one at center stage being the bride…
