Courtney + Kyan: SNEAK PEEK! | Pontiac Elks Club Wedding, Pontiac, Illinois

Winter brought snow for Courtney and Kyan’s January wedding day! Fortunately, they were adventurous enough to spend a little time outside in the flurry. We took full advantage!

Over the Rhine: To the Last Frontier – Roots on the Rails – Alaska/Kenai Peninsula, 2013

One does not simply blog about Alaska. Honestly, I don’t really know where to begin talking about my trip to Alaska with Roots on the Rails earlier this month. So much happened in such a short period of time. There were glaciers and rainbows and train rides and whales and puffins and friends and mountains […]

Megan + Patrick: ENGAGED | Bloomington, Illinois Photographer

A few days after the snow storm of the century hit us here in Central Illinois, we ventured out to snap some engagement photos for Megan and Patrick. Don’t let the winter get you down– you can have a great portrait session in the colder weather!  We were digging their punky second look too!

Ellen + Kyle: 01.08.11 | Bloomington, Illinois Wedding Photographer

A fresh snowfall the night before Ellen and Kyle’s wedding was a welcome site for us. Winter weddings can be so beautiful when you brave the outdoors for your pictures. We were loving the late afternoon light in the park. Enjoy the highlights from their wedding last month!

Ashley + Brian: SNEAK PEEK | The Drake Hotel Wedding Photographer

Enjoying your snow day? We are! Yesterday during the storm we lost power for a while– was hoping to get these up then, but they had to wait until today. Here are just a few sneak peeks from Ashley and Brian’s wedding in downtown Chicago last weekend!

Teresa + PJ: 01.01.11 | Breckenridge, Colorado Wedding Photographer

Our first wedding of 2011! Wow, what an adventure! We put our “extreme destination wedding photographer” hats on for this outdoor wedding ceremony in the Rocky Mountains. To say it was unseasonably cold is probably an understatement. The high temp was 6 degrees, but it was feeling somewhere around -35 below zero with the windchill. […]

Lindsey + Mark: ENGAGED | Bloomington, Illinois Photographer

We did an impromptu engagement session for Lindsey and Mark this winter– it was literally planned the night before at their booking consultation. 🙂 That’s just how we roll sometimes– we wanted to take advantage of the impending snow storm, and they just happened to be in town for one more day. So here are […]

Teresa + Philip: SNEAK PEEK | Breckenridge, Colorado Wedding

One of our most anticipated weddings– our first for 2011– here is a sneak peek from Teresa and PJ’s wedding in Colorado. It was COLD, but we made the most of it! Enjoy– more to come in a couple weeks after we get back from next weekend’s wedding in Riviera Maya, Mexico– talk about going […]
