Stacy & Nate {Wedding Day}

There can be weddings that just feel like any ol’ day. Not a ton of excitement or fanfare, just going through the motions. But sometimes, there are wedding days like Stacy & Nate’s. Where the minute you open the door to the church your hairs stand on end with excitement, and there is an excitement that fills every room. I can remember going to weddings when I was young and feeling the impact of how momentous the occasion was. Through youthful eyes every wedding is a fairytale come true. On this day, waiting for Stacy to walk down the aisle – it was as if seeing a wedding through those same youthful eyes again. The day, the couple, the families and friends were all perfectly as they should be – filled with joy, love, and excitement. A true life fairytale. A day that dreams are made of. Enjoy Stacy & Nate’s wedding day!!

Jackie - … words cannot express how joyous this day was! It was filled with genuine love, laughter and celebration of two people truly in love. One event that stood out was when they exchanged gifts, but not see each other, before the ceremony… and you can’t beat Nate’s reaction when he sees his bride for the first time. The expressions are amazing and you captured their emotions SO well!Absolutely beautiful! Their love and your photography is truly inspiring! : )

Amanda & Mike {Wedding Day}

Amanda and Mike had planned a unique, beautiful outdoor wedding of their dreams. So you would think that the gray skies and rain would have brought their spirits down, but there were smiles on their faces and an excitement in the air. They’d been looking forward to this day for a long time, and working towards a goal that no rain or gray skies could spoil. Surrounded with their family and close friends, Amanda and Mike made the trek from Carlinville IL to the Villa Marie Winery in Maryville for the beautiful ceremony that would change their lives.

Mary & Tod

Mary & Tod are each separately endearing, charming, relatable, kind, and gracious. Together, they are all these things plus respectful, courteous, and supportive to one another and to all they meet. They are inspiring. There are plenty of types of loves out there – puppy love, love/hate, young love, past loves, crazy love. But what Mary & Tod have is what I would define as true love. It’s not flashy, its not in your face, it’s just real, and deep, and the kind of love you wish for anyone you care for in life. Because that love is truly never ending.

Melissa & Pat {engaged}

She couldn’t have known she’d meet the boy she would marry one day when she embarked on the bus her freshman year of high school. He’ll say he felt something immediately when seeing her for the first time. She’ll say she was clueless. He’ll explain how he pursued her throughout the rest of his high school days – asking her to homecomings, dates, and proms. She’ll say she wanted to remain friends and turned him down every single time. But after several years passed and she was having a hard time while in college, he was the first person she wanted to call.

Jessica & Kevin {Wedding Day}

Walking into her Grandma’s house, the hallway to get to Jessica was lined with photos. Memories of grade school, birthdays, high school, graduation, the big moments that when all put together make up a lifetime. Voices floated through the rooms, and laughter filled the air. It could have been any of those days that were proudly displayed on Grandma’s walls. But this day was different. This day would change that hallway of memories forever and add to it with a new family, a new commitment, and a lifetime of new memories where the pattern would repeat. It’s an honor to have captured images that would adorn Grandma’s walls and add to the story – the story of Jessica and Kevin.
