Whenever I get to photograph a special time in someones life, it’s always a blessing. But when those people happen to be your friends, really really good friends, it takes on a whole new meaning. It already was such an amazing experience to photograph Bri and Mikes Wedding in 2017, but now I got to […]

The way the Naperville Riverwalk lights up behind these two has me speechless! I love a good urban session and Downtown Naperville has so much to offer for a beautiful evening setting. I can’t wait to get back and shoot here over the summer and fall when it’s all bloomed and even more gorgeous. But […]

Sunsets in the country fields of a small town have my whole heart! There’s something about the quiet nights (until the train rolls through) and fields that go on for days to catch the perfect sunset! This little town just south of Kankakee, IL gave us the perfect setting for Chad and Sammys engagement session. […]

I love when i get “just because” sessions. I’ve said it before, even when your’e married there is still a reason to get photos taken. Just have fun, and capture something each year. Even if it’s just the two of you! We had a pretty good couple of weeks with beautiful snow in Kankakee, so […]

Originally when I had talked with Amanda, we were just scheduling our consultation to go over their wedding details as I normally do. Usually this is the first time I meet my couples and then we plan for the engagement session from there. A couple of days before our consultation, Amanda had text me asking […]
