Katie + Gregg {Wedding}

Such a magical wedding for Katie and Gregg Macek! Super honored that I got to play a small part of this Christ-centered wedding. Congratulations Katie and Gregg! You have my heart always and words are not enough to express how much I loved being your wedding photographer. God bless you and your family as you start this new chapter together!

Gotta love a wedding with lots and lots of children! :)  Special thanks to Merriment Event Planning! They were awesome and made the whole wedding dreamy and gorgeous!! And last but not least, thanks to Kailin Richardson for being a wonderful assistant and second-shooter!

Jackie + William {Wedding}

Jackie and Will have a special place in my heart.  I’ve known them for a few short years and they’ve been on the other side of my camera three times, and this fourth being their wedding.  They have been such wonderful clients and I’m blessed to have them in my life.

Venue: The Morton Arboretum

“Thanks, Jackie+Will, for having me as your photographer on this unforgettable day!”

Kimberly+David {Elopement}

Kimberly and David went ahead and did it! They ELOPED and surprised almost everybody! Love these guys and they made me think that eloping might be my thing! I mean, how do you beat making the most important things simple and going after your heart? And on a personal note, the day was terribly overcast, but looking at these photos, there’s so much life and COLOR…which is what Kimberly wanted! We even had rain at the end, but it didn’t matter. Kimberly and David managed to finish their first dance and we all sat and ate more cake under two umbrellas. I know these guys don’t know me well, but this day had my name written all over it! :) Proof that I had fun? I asked for a second slice of the wedding cake!!
