Amanda Zika - Being on vacation I missed out on when you posted this. Wow, we did rock it out that day. I have a wedding there this weekend and cannot wait. My favorite new place to shoot!

Emily K. - I think it’s pretty safe to say these pictures left me speechless … considering it’s taken me over a week to come up with the perfect THANK YOU! Karin, Roger, and Amanda – you seriously pulled out all the stops to make this day perfect for Mike and me. We cannot thank you enough. So many people have given us compliments on these photos. Mike and I were both caught by surprise to see the “X” photo in the slide show – a true testiment that you captured the little details that mean so much to us. Thank you again for making the day perfect and we can’t wait to have these pictures hanging all throughout our home! Emily & Mike

Waneta - Breathtaking. Just breathtaking! Mike and Emily, your pictures are gorgeous because you two are so gorgeous. Congratulations, again, on your new marriage. Your photographers captured how beautiful that day was and you will now have that forever. I am just blown away by the photography, which is, in my opinion, the most important part of a wedding. Your photographer wrote it well how your love is truly visible in your pictures. Just as I know Mike has done everything so far, and I’m sure I can assume Emily has as well, your wedding demonstrated your poise and grace and good-naturedness. I wish you both the absoulte best of everything in your future. Kuch, I love you and now, Emily I love you by association! Your friend, Waneta

Kristen & Joe {Engagement Session}

If you grew up in the town of Collinsville Illinois, you probably spent your Junior High Friday nights at Tepee – the coolest place to be seen dancing or eating pizza as a 12 or 13 year old. It is also the place that Kristen and Joey first met. Through the years they eventually started […]

Christa & Josh {Engaged}

Christa worked at a bowling alley, and as fate would have it – Josh bowled there on Friday nights.  She was secretly attracted to him, and finally he did what any macho man would do and had his cousin ask her out for him.  She likes to pretend that she had no interest and just […]

Kim & David {Wedding Day}

Roger met David before I did.  Back in 2007 we sometimes did weddings separately.  On this instance Roger was videoing a wedding and I was photographing a totally separate one.  He shared a portion of the footage with me the next week, of a groomsman jumping up in the air and splitting his tux pants.

Amanda Zika - I knew this wedding post would be fabulous and it was! I can’t wait to see the rest of the photos. I am sure they are just as beautiful. I love all the arch ones. What I didn’t like was walking up all those steps pregnant. LOL!
