Karen contacted me about possibly photographing her wedding to Dan at a friend's home in Lincoln, Illinois.  The weather cooperated beautifully and the couple had a comfortable 11:30am ceremony at this wonderful, historic old home.  Following the ceremony, we did a few portraits on the porch and the garden.  They both followed my posing instructions well and looked so happy in both the posed frames and those moments in between.  I thoroughly enjoyed my hour with them and their friends and family.  Also through perusing my website, Karen caught on to my love of wedding cake, and brought me a piece to take home with me.  Such a thoughtful gesture!  Thanks & congrats, Dan + Karen!
