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…

Our second to last wedding of 2016, can this really be here already? I can’t believe how fast this year has gone by! What a perfect day for a wedding too. Partly cloudy, mid-60s, I know I say this so many times, but you couldn’t ask for a better day for a wedding. The ceremony…

Just six days ago I was taking this same I-70 route to Hermann, MO for a wedding, except Kelly and Clayton’s had me going double the distance this time to Kansas City where their wedding was held at Alexander Majors House and Barn. This venue was a hidden gem in the middle of what seemed liked…

It’s been a while since we’ve had a Sunday wedding, and this was not the typical Sunday wedding for us either. The night before we had a wedding in Salem, which is about a 40 minute drive for us. After getting home that night and backing up all the images from that day, batteries were charged,…

Talk about an amazing location. I was looking forward to Abigail and Zach’s wedding for quite some time. I love weddings out at A Fair Barn in Salem, IL. The location is perfect and the venue helps ensure a great wedding day by having the ability to have the wedding and reception all in one…

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…

I seemed to have noticed a trend lately at least in this area where the ceremony and reception happen at the same place. For some venues this may be very common, especially outdoor venues, but I’ve noticed it becoming more popular for venues that may have hosted primarily receptions. Honestly, I think I’m a fan…
