Dana & Brian {married}

There were traffic jams, trains stopped, roads closed, obstacle after obstacle on the day of Dana & Brian’s wedding. Things were a little tense, but as each found out the other was at the church and all was fine, the stress simply melted off and the laughter and fun began. It was a beautiful day, the sun was shining, and today was the day they would marry the love of their life. What else would they need?
Enjoy Dad & Brian’s wedding day!!

Lea V. {H.S. Senior}

Lea just started her senior year at Carlinville High School yesterday. I am sure the excitement of senior year and all the possibilities it holds became very real as she walked through the doors into a new chapter of memories. Lea is a sweet, fun, adorable gal who loves athletics and her friends. Roger and I had a great time talking and spending time with she and her mother and enjoyed the great weather this summer have given us, and the relaxed and easy going session. Enjoy a sneak peek of Lea’s senior photos!!

Brianne & Jon {married}

Brianne and Jon couldn’t have known when they chose a wedding day in July that the weather would be perfect. They couldn’t have known that the sun would be shining, that laughter would fill the air, that guests would compliment their reception details, that the day would go off without a hitch. They couldn’t have known that their wedding day would be flawless. The only thing they knew was that no matter if the weather wasn’t perfect, if it rained, if no one noticed the details and laughter never filled the air – that they were getting married and that’s all that mattered. Their love is strong, sweet, and deep so nothing matters except love. But the extras certainly made for a stunning day!! Enjoy Brianne and Jon’s wedding!!

Melissa & Pat {married}

Melissa & Pat brought us up to Peoria IL for the weekend of their wedding. We love being able to see the dynamic of two sets of families on a day less hectic than the wedding day. You learn so much about the foundation of the couple and see them more relaxed and happy. We watched Melissa laugh with her bridesmaids until she cried. We listened to Pat’s grandpa share stories about life and memories. When Melissa’s dad ordered a coffee, we watched as her mom quietly tap him reminding him he’d be up all night if he had too much. Each interaction individually seems small and insignificant, but as a whole they make a family a family. It shows the depth of love, and the solid foundation for which a marriage is built. Being a part of these moments, made being a part of the next day that much more special. Enjoy Melissa and Pat’s day!!

Melissa Rytter - Thank you so much Karin and Roger! We can never thank you enough for capturing our day so perfectly.

Stephanie & Chad {married}

They both were on the shooting team for their college. There aren’t many girl shooters, so Chad knew who Stephanie was long before they officially met. They hit it off right away and even though there was a pretty good distance between them, they’d see one another at shoots on the weekends. On one occasion the meet had ended up in a tie between Stephanie and Chad. Everyone gathered around to see the couple do a shoot out and teased about who would win. Chad ended up winning, but the day he truly won was a couple years later when he asked Stephanie to marry him at sunrise on a beach in Cancun and she said “yes”. Enjoy Stephanie & Chad’s wedding day!!!
