  • Shannon + Jordan : Allerton Mansion wedding : Monticello

  • What a beautiful wedding! I've photographed several weddings and many portraits on the Allerton Park grounds in the past, but this was my first experience with a ceremony and reception both in the mansion. It is such a gorgeous venue, and I was so happy to get to work with Shannon's family again! [...]
  • A.J. + Craig : Lincoln Banquet Center wedding

  • I was so privileged to photograph a wedding in my tiny hometown of Easton this weekend. I went to the same high school as A.J. + Craig and have even known Craig for much longer as we were in the same 4-H club. I was worried it was going to rain off and on throughout the day, but it really only rai[...]
  • Elena + Stephen : Erin's Pavilion Springfield wedding

  • Elena + Stephen had a beautiful wedding on Memorial Day weekend, and even though it was rainy and chilly most of the weekend, we had near perfect weather every time we were outside for photos! I loved the guys in their Army uniforms, and the bride's dress was amazing. I had been wanting to do a we[...]
  • Leah + Dirk : Rural Urbana wedding

  • Leah + Dirk recently opened Louie's Dixie Kitchen in Urbana, but now have become partners in marriage as well as business! They were married in mid-May at Dirk's father's house in rural Urbana. Since they own a restaurant, you'd probably guess that their wedding would have amazing food. And it di[...]
  • IHSA Class 1A State Champions : Illini Central Cougars

  • I had a pretty fun week last week. I was able to secure a press pass for the IHSA Class 1A State Finals in Peoria, and while I was at it, went ahead and got one for the Super Sectional in Bloomington. Cougar nation (Mason City, Easton, San Jose) had high hopes for their boys' basketball team, afte[...]
  • One Winter Night : C-U at Home fundraiser

  • The 2nd annual One Winter Night event was held from 6pm to 6am on Feb. 1 & 2 in downtown Champaign and on the University of Illinois Quad. Founder Melany asked me once again to capture photos of the event and its participants. Since the scope of the event is somewhat large, I did my best to tell t[...]
  • Shannon + Brandon : Holy Cross + iHotel wedding

  • Shannon + Brandon had an absolutely beautiful and perfect wedding day -- just like I knew they would! Shannon had her ducks all in a row well over a year ago when they hired me to photograph their wedding. Everything was planned to a T, with few hiccups (were there any??), and even though it was D[...]
  • Stacey + Jeff | Funks Grove Chapel Wedding

  • This wedding was extra special to me because it was my dad's! My dad Jeff married Stacey on Dec. 1 at the little country Funks Grove Chapel. I'm always a sucker for little wooden churches with white pews. They are so cute! I talked them into stopping on the way to the reception for a few images [...]
  • Cindy + Chris | Champaign Courthouse wedding photographer

  • I had the privilege of photographing another courthouse wedding on the Friday before Thanksgiving. Courthouse weddings are great because they are pretty much solid photojournalism with very little (if any) posing or details. I get to tell the couple's story in a natural and candid way that is very[...]
