Although they were from different towns, during high school their circles of friends would sometimes hang out. Andee and Ryan knew one another, but that was the extent of it. 5 years later while home for winter break from U of I, he called her on a whim. He would come sit with her and chat while she was working and they completely hit it off. One day he asked her to meet his parents over dinner, and from that day on, they were an item.
Sometimes it’s immediate. There is a spark right off the bat. There is an easiness about the relationship, and it feels like you’ve known the other your entire life. Soul mates if you will. At this point, I’m sure you think I’m talking about the relationship between Whitney & Kurt. Although those things would certainly apply, I was referring to the relationship Roger and I have with them. That’s what you want to know about, right? How much WE love them? I’ll bring this all back to them eventually I swear. For now, let me tell you about why we adore them so much.
He’s her provider, her protector. He’ll defend, support, watch over, go to bat for her. She is his champion. She admires him, respects him, appreciates him. She cherishes him. Lauren & Justin know just how to love one another the way they need to be loved. When Justin walks into a room, Lauren lights up, and when she holds him in close he feels at peace. It’s a beautiful dynamic that makes this couple radiate with love. The weather on their wedding day may have been a bit gloomy, but there was enough true love to make it shine. Enjoy Lauren & Justin’s wedding day.
When the forecast called for snow I got chills. (Pun intended) The only better than Pere Marquette State Park, is a snowy Pere Marquette State Park!!! Located in Grafton IL – Pere Marquette is just one of those magical places that come equipped with unmatched views and lots of charm. So as we headed to the lodge with the sunlight dappling through the snow covered trees, the excitement grew. Katie and Brad could not have asked for a more perfect day to promise forever to one another. Enjoy their wedding day!!
Jenn and Ryan were married in November on a unusually warm autumn day. And unusually breezy autumn day. And by breezy I mean gale force winds that would make the crews on Deadliest Catch nervous. Photographing in the wind is so tough – more so even than rain. However, Jenn & Ryan were in their own world.
