Sue + Ron : Couples Session + Dogs : Lake of the Woods Mahomet

Sue contacted me about doing a session with her and her husband Ron and their two dogs. We met up at Lake of the Woods for a fun session with their very happy & eager dogs. It was a tad hard getting the dogs' attention from behind the camera, but I happy with the images we got. We also borrowed a golf cart from the pro shop for a few minutes as an ode to Ron's line of work. I love personalizing sessions this way!

Katie + Will | Urbana engagement photographer

When Katie + Will first came to meet with me about their wedding photography, there was much discussion about their canine friends, and how they would be involved in both the engagement photos and the wedding in some capacity. I am excited to meet Will's family's dog at the wedding next August! For now, I got to meet the couple's two Yorkies, and they were very well behaved, even though Meadowbrook Park is full of squirrels! Katie + Will are so sweet and easygoing together, and I'm very much looking forward to their wedding next summer!

Shannon + Brandon | Trevett Finch Park engagement photography

Shannon + Brandon are two of my wedding clients who booked their wedding months and months ago, and since then have become good friends of mine. I enjoy keeping up with their lives on Facebook, and during the session I told them it was about time we finally got them in front of my camera! Their wedding is in December, and they have a bunch of cool things in store for their big day. The weather was perfect for their session at the end of September, but I'm sure it will be a little cooler the day of the wedding. :) They brought along their furry companions, Gretzky & Jackson. After Trevett Finch Park, we headed over to the University of Illinois Ice Arena for a few shots of them spraying the camera with ice. This turned out to be more difficult than I was anticipating! Then we finished up in downtown Urbana near Crane Alley. I love this one! And this was the sneak peek I posted to Facebook a few days ago. A couple of their friends said it reminded them of Twilight. LOL I haven't seen the movies, so I can't vote either way! My middle name is danger. Love and Toms.
