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

Stefanie + Matt | Crystal Lake Park Urbana engagement pictures


Stefanie + Matt met at work, recently got engaged and are looking forward to their happily ever after! They drove over from Bloomington-Normal to meet me in Urbana for their engagement session at Crystal Lake Park and then downtown Urbana. We were blessed with a gorgeous, mild and sunny December day and I am so happy with their images! These two were so easy to pose -- I remember after the first pose/set, Stefanie commented on how she was glad I told them what to do. :) That is one of the perks of choosing an experienced photographer who specializes in posing -- lots of different image options and not having to worry about how to stand or how you look. I take care of all of that, so your part is to show up and look pretty for my camera! Text me to book your session - 217-737-0971!Crystal Lake Park steps engagement

Maria + David | University of Illinois engagement pictures


Maria + David are having a 4th of July weekend wedding on the U of I campus in just a few weeks. They live out of state, but came back last week to tie up a few details for the wedding and found some time to fit in their engagement session. I loved hearing about how they met on campus, and am looking forward to their wedding at St. John's and the Refinery. The countdown is on! :)St Johns Catholic Church Champaign University of Illinois Arboretum engagement University of Illinois Arboretum engagement wildflowers field Urbana
