Kelsy + Nick | Uptown Normal engagement session

Kelsy + Nick are one of my 2020 couples that I love because they booked me basically through Instagram! It made me feel like all my hard work over on that platform is paying off! Kelsy had been following my work for a while, then next thing I know, they are engaged! I was thrilled when she messaged me to book me as her wedding photographer.

So fast forward a bit to this week when we did their engagement session, almost a year to the day of their wedding next September. They live near Peoria so we met in the middle in Normal for their session. They weren’t tied to any particular locations, so I picked two of my favorites — Uptown Normal & Maxwell Park!

We got lots of color and a stunning golden hour! Can’t wait for next September when I get to see them again!

Erin + Steve | Autumn outdoor engagement session | Normal, Illinois


I'm so excited for Erin + Steve's upcoming wedding! Erin has known my husband Aaron since jr high/high school when her brother Brian and Aaron became best friends. Unfortunately, I never got to meet Brian (or "Stew" as their friends all called him), but I feel like I did from all the crazy and funny stories I've heard. I was honored when Erin contacted me after she and Steve got engaged to ask about my engagement and wedding packages. These two are planning an intimate, beautiful wedding in Naperville in just a few weeks! I met them last weekend in Normal for their combination engagement-slash-family pictures, and it was so fun to see little man Carson again and see how much he's grown since the last time I saw him! From what I hear, he is a miniature version of his uncle Brian. Be sure to check back in early December for their wedding blog post as well! :) fall family and engagement session
