Anna & Derek {Wedding Day}

It was the cold of winter when Anna, Derek, Roger, and I sat down over coffee to talk about their outdoor wedding while they were home for a visit. Everything sounded perfect, and that’s when I said it. “Now what is the plan if it rains?” Not stressed, not worried, and thinking only positively, Anna answered that they’d move everything under the tent and they weren’t going to worry about it. I figured she’d live on the west coast too long and maybe forgot about our crazy midwest weather, but they had a vision of how their wedding day would be – and there was nothing going to stop them from having an amazing outdoor wedding. Although when the day arrived it may have began to heavy drops of rain and tears, it ended as the very day they’d dreamed of and envisioned. Enjoy Anna & Derek’s wedding day!!!

Amanda Zika - This made my jaw drop. I love the green and orange, the emotion of the the couple and their families, the itty bitty in size but largely amazing details and every single photo that capture it perfectly. I need a wedding just like this. And that little flower girl and ring bearer may be the cutest I have ever seen!

Uncle Don - Nicely done. Congratulations.

Kate Sperry - Beautiful!

Maggie M. {High School Seniors}

I remember High School pretty vividly. I remember hair scrunchies to match every outfit and tight rolling my pants. And hairspray. Lots and lots of hairspray. Roger probably remembers his mullet. (True story.)
I don’t however remember anyone looking like Maggie in high school. Because let’s face it… she looks like a movie star or a model. I don’t remember acting like Maggie either. Mature, smart, and well composed – Maggie is not your typical everyday teen. When she graduates next year I can only imagine what’s ahead in her future. Enjoy Maggie’s senior photos!

Whitney & Seth {Wedding Day}

She waited with her girls in the back room of the church. She was anxious. She’d dreamed of this day for as long as she could remember, and their wedding day was finally here. She peeked through the blinds to look outside and saw the hundreds of people waiting in line to get into church. “Oh my goodness” she said as she tried to imagine how all the people would fit. And a few minutes later, right there in the little town she grew up in, in a standing room only church, the doors opened and she saw him… and she knew it was finally here. The day she’d marry the love of her life. Enjoy Whitney & Seth’s wedding day!

Elizabeth K. {Senior Photos}

Elizabeth is getting ready for her senior year of high school at Carlinville H.S. She’s very much into dance, and is on the dance team and 4-H. She’s not 100% sure what she wants to be when she grows up, but being a “weather woman” on the news is one profession she’s tossing around. Those are some of the details, but what you should also know is that Elizabeth is kind, warm, fun, and BEAUTIFUL and truly a joy to get to know.
