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!!!

Beverly Eckert - Absolutely…the most georgeous wedding photos I’ve ever seen and I’ve seen plenty. This photograher is amazing. Thanks

Jenna & Lance {married}

The moment I met Jenna I instantly felt like I was talking to a friend. She’s so incredibly enjoyable to talk to and as beautiful as she is sweet. So it was no surprise upon meeting her family that they would all be the exact same way. it makes for a happy day when everyone you meet treats you like family! We’d never met Lance before, and he instantly fit into the mix and you could see how he was Jenna’s perfect counterpart. Supportive and caring, quiet and humble, Lance is certainly the perfect fit for Jenna. The weather, the people, the locations,the couple… the day was absolute perfection. Enjoy Jenna & Lance’s wedding day!

Chelsey & Brad {married}

It’s easy to get caught up in the details. You spend your days leading up to a wedding engulfed in dress colors, what fonts to use on your programs, Pinterest boards filled with ideas and hairstyles, flowers and decorations. But within all the hoopla there is a bigger entity to a wedding that for some people gets lost, and it’s called a marriage. It’s the day you commit to spend eternity with someone, so it should take more precedence than “bubbles or confetti?” but sometimes it doesn’t. That was far from the case for Chelsey & Brad’s wedding.

May your marriage be one that was made in heaven.. enjoy your new journey together and know I think a lot about you as a friend. Sylvia

Lauren & Tyler {married}

From the moment I met Lauren & Tyler I knew their wedding day would be perfect. After their engagement session, we knew their photos would be perfect because these two OOOZE photogenic-ness. (is that a word?) But after getting to know Lauren over the past year, and more about she and Tyler’s love – it was obvious that their MARRIAGE would be perfect. And isn’t that what this is all about? The wedding, the details, the dresses, the cake – all fantastic. But if it’s not based around a couple who is with every fiber meant to be together, it’s not authentic. So when you get swept away in the beauty of this day, and this couple, we hope you see the most beautiful thing of all, and that’s their love. Enjoy Lauren & Tyler’s wedding day!
