Dan + Maddie

Alumni of U of I, Dan and Maddie wanted to have their photoshoot on the campus of the university.  As they prepared to come down from Chicago for the shoot, they were getting nostalgic of all the history and memories that they shared while they were here.  At the same time, they got excited putting together a plan of attack for a food itinerary just to make sure they hit all the places they used to eat at during their college years.  You can’t leave important things like that to chance :)

After going around the Quad and the Illini Union, we went to the Arboretum where they had one of their first dates.  Fitting for their personalities, the shoot was light hearted and fun.  Enjoy and be sure to wish this soon-to-be newly weds the best!

Joe + Melissa’s Wedding

Despite Joe’s many faces that he makes, as a couple Joe and Melissa are more fun than crazy. Chill even. I had the opportunity to be a part of their wedding day and despite the sun being out in full force and the pressures of having to move out to California in a few days, they kept it cool under the tux and wedding dress :) In fact, with dandelion balls blanketing the grass and the occasional lazy summer breeze, we had our own unique snow that day. It didn’t make the day any cooler temperature wise, but it certainly added to the already beautiful day!

Taft + Becky Engagement Session

Holy batman! It’s almost been 2 months since my last update.  But what better time to post since tomorrow is my college roommate and good friend Taft’s wedding?  We did a pre-engagement shoot last year, but we decided to have a engagement shoot as well.

If you know Taft, many of you know that he is the king of corn.  Not everyone can appreciate corny jokes, but I must admit that every once in awhile he comes up with a good one.  With his marriage one day away with a lovely soon to be wife, I look forward to many baby corn in the future!

I won’t be wielding a camera tomorrow since I have the honor of standing.  Now if you’ll excuse me, off to the rehearsal I go!
