Sabrina & Aaron – Panther Creek Country Club Wedding in Springfield, Illinois – May 19, 2018

Sabrina & Aaron’s wedding day was an absolute dream. When Sabrina contacted me initially, she told me that she is a wedding videographer, and that one of our mutual videographer friends (Hi Ingrid!) had recommended me to her. Talk about being flattered!!! It’s such an honor to be recommended and chosen by people whose jobs have them around weddings and other wedding photographers every week. Sabrina booked me soon after us initially talking on the phone, and after I met them for the first time at their engagement session a few weeks later, I was walking on air. Sabrina & Aaron are two of the most genuinely beautiful people, inside and out, and to see the way they interacted with and loved each other was the stuff that every photographer dreams of. 🙂

Their wedding day was everything. No detail was left undone. Some of my favorite things included Sabrina’s flower crown, their heartfelt and thoughtful gifts for each other, the epically beautiful bouquets, and their wedding party people (and families!) were phenomenally fun to work with and to be around.

Sabrina & Aaron’s first dance, to “Tightrope” from The Greatest Showman soundtrack, is one that I will never forget. Sabrina changed into a beautiful dress to dance in, and they hit the dance floor to perform a choreographed routine that had every guest’s jaw on the floor. They did SUCH a great job!!!

Thank you, Sabrina & Aaron, for choosing me to be your wedding photographer … it was such an honor!

Abbey & Garret – Wedding in Kewanee, Illinois – May 13, 2017

Family first. It’s something we say, and often mean sincerely, but I saw it on display firsthand at Abbey & Garret’s May wedding in Kewanee, Illinois.

Shortly after I photographed their engagement session last summer, Abbey & Garret found out that they would be blessed with someone joining their family shortly before their wedding. Their joy was evident from the moment they found out, and it was incredibly touching how they involved baby Major in their wedding day. Garret held Major in his arms the entire time that he was at the front of the church with Abbey. They also had a surprise for their guests – they had planned with the pastor to have baby Major baptized during the wedding ceremony, with all of their closest friends and family there to witness it. It was perfect.

During their engagement session, I learned that Abbey & Garret have very unique style that they fully embrace and show the world. Their boot collection is fantastic! I got a hint of this at their engagement, but I was able to see the collection on full display at the reception, as they used boots filled with various wildflowers for their centerpieces.

One of my favorite things about Abbey & Garret’s wedding is how they made it personal, choosing to keep traditions that they felt were important, and creating new traditions. It was a fantastic day spent celebrating their beautiful family.
