I'm a Wedding and Portrait Photographer based in Central Illinois and this is where you'll find all my latest news and photo shoots.  
Stay awhile and enjoy the pretty!






Having a winter wedding isn’t something that a ton of brides dream of. I mean, it’s usually cold and dreary here in Illinois. But as a winter bride myself, I tend to love capturing these days. AND these two now share something special with me… an anniversary. Shannon & Chance got married on December 2nd, which was my 10 year anniversary. <3 And while we got married on the same day of the year, our weather couldn’t be more different! It was such a contrast to our icy, snowy day. Shannon & Chance enjoyed a cool 50 degree day with sun. In December! In Illinois. That in itself is a true miracle.

These two legit melt my heart together. Chance is once of the sweetest most thoughtful guys that you will ever meet. When I first arrived, Shannon opened her gift from Chance. It was the sweetest wedding gift I’d ever seen. He had been journaling throughout their whole relationship and put together a little trip down memory lane through his gifts. And can we talk about how gorgeous Shannon was as a winter bride. She was perfection. And those flowers…. every part of Shannon’s day helped make her the gorgeous winter bride that she dreamed of.

Shannon & Chance – Thank you so much for letting me be a part of your gorgeous day. It’s so special that we now share an anniversary and I wish you guys the best first year of marriage ever!
