  • Erin + Chris | Meadowbrook Park engagement session

  • Erin + Chris's wedding is coming up in October, and their engagement session was the first time we got to sit down and chat about the wedding. I previously had just chatted with Erin and her mom via phone/email, so I was happy to meet the couple in person, and get to know them a bit before the wedd[...]
  • Rachel + Kit | Monticello Allerton engagement session

  • Rachel + Kit are like many of my engaged couples, in that they haven't really been professionally photographed since their high school senior portraits. Do not fret if this is you as well--that is completely normal! Rachel + Kit were a bit nervous, understandably, but I think they both loosened up[...]
  • Amanda + Matt | Tuscola engagement photographer

  • Amanda + Matt had me come out to his family's farm in rural Tuscola last week for their engagement session. I grew up on a farm myself, so whenever I get a chance to get out again with the dirt, cattle & tractors, I am all for it! And they had the right color of tractors and all (RED), so we were [...]
  • Leigh + Adam | Downtown Urbana engagement photography

  • I think Leigh + Adam set a new record at Holly Birch Photography. Their engagement session was a scant THREE days prior to their wedding. Better late than never, I always say. :) Seriously, though, these two are so great. I haven't known them for very long, but what time I have spent with them I[...]
  • Julia + Mike | Champaign engagement photography

  • Julia + Mike are getting married in August, and I am so excited to be a part of their day. Mike has been a good friend of mine for many years, and I actually met Julia for the first time at my own wedding in 2009. I'm so happy that they've found each other, and though I don't know Julia as well as[...]
  • Lara + Mike | Champaign engagement photography session

  • Lara & Mike sought me out for an engagement session recently, and I had an assistant come along to help me so I could shoot some video while she was doing stills. I'm learning more about my HD movie capabilities the more I use my camera, and these are so fun to do and put together! I think I'm goi[...]

If you are reading this, would you please "like" Holly Birch Photography on Facebook? As a fan, you'll get more up-to-date announcements[...]
  • Lauren + Ryan | Urbana engagement photography

  • Lauren + Ryan's engagement session took place at the Arboretum. I've been pleasantly surprised by how vibrant the colors still are there still. This session took place just 5 or so days ago so this is pretty true to how it looks right now. I guess we're still waiting on that first true frost thou[...]
