Megan + Zach | Mason City & Lincoln, IL wedding photographer

I've known Zach for a long time as he was one of my brother's good friends growing up (this makes the 2nd wedding for one of my brother's classmates actually!). I didn't know Megan until their engagement session, but I could tell immediately how sweet and kind she is. And she made such a beautiful, glowing bride! Zach is one lucky guy. ;) We started the photos at the Mason City Christian Church, then headed to downtown Lincoln to the old train station for some wedding party pictures, followed by the reception at the American Legion in Lincoln. There are a couple new all-time favorites in this set I think, so buckle up! Zach + Megan, I hope you're enjoying your time in Cancun! AND, leave a comment below (either on the blog itself or via the FB plug-in at the bottom and after 50 comments, Megan + Zach will receive a free 16x20" print! I've had a couple people send me this idea, so I planned ahead for once and brought along my Bananagrams. So fun! I know this shot is a little out of focus, but it shows the best how much they were bombarded by birdseed when they left the church. Just before they walked out, Megan said "I'm scared!" :) Just a random shot that I fell in love with. :) If they ever start a band... MOH Samantha was having major issues keeping the bustle up. It did NOT want to cooperate. Uhhh... YES. Zach suggested this spot as it was where he got some senior photos done. At first I waved it off because I thought it was all in the sun, but man am I glad we walked down there. The light and atmosphere were perfect for one of their wedding party shots. This image was one of those instances where we were almost back to the limo, and I saw this light. And this old train. And we had to stop. Fun with sparklers! Thanks bridesmaids for your help!

A big thanks to all the vendors for making my job so easy!
