  • Sarah + Adam - University of Illinois engagement session

  • Sarah + Adam met as neighbors in an apartment building on campus at the University of Illinois. We met up at that old apartment building and got just a few shots there (apologies to the current occupants who quickly locked their doors!), before heading over to the Quad. This was just a mini-sessio[...]
  • Kristen + Clayton | Champaign Willard Airport wedding

  • Kristen + Clayton had probably the most unique wedding I have ever had the privilege of photographing. Every detail was planned perfectly, and encompassed their all-American red, white & blue theme completely. The ceremony and reception were held on the Champaign Willard Airport campus at a privat[...]
  • Bella | 6-year-old fall portraits

  • On Labor Day, we had a cookout with our family in Cerro Gordo. After dinner, Bella, my 6-year-old sister-in-law, her mom Jami and I headed out to a nearby sunflower field in rural Decatur. Jami had had her eye on this field for a while, and I'm so glad we took advantage this very cool spot.[...]
  • Lydia + Justin | Champaign iHotel wedding photography

  • Lydia + Justin's wedding fell during the remnants of Hurricane Isaac as he traveled up through the Midwest. We desperately needed the rain, but I felt so bad for Lydia who had planned all these beautiful outdoor locations for photos, but was all week working on a contingency plan instead. We lucke[...]
  • Amanda + Matt | Champaign Holy Cross + Hilton Wedding

  • We lucked out and got another beautiful day for Matt + Amanda's wedding near the end of August. Their wedding party was definitely a rowdy bunch, but that helped us get a bunch of fun, relaxed group photos. I once again made a pilgrimage to the Tumble Inn (for those of you keeping score at home, t[...]
  • Sarah + Adam | Champaign iHotel wedding

  • The weather finally cooled off for a bit this summer, and we got some absolutely perfect weather for Sarah + Adam's wedding, complete with a few sprinkles earlier in the day. Sarah chose a light pink and polka dot theme for their wedding, which finally made sense to Adam once he saw her dress for t[...]
  • Julia + Mike | University of Illinois ARC wedding

  • Julia + Mike are such a great couple. They planned a very beautiful and classy wedding, with the ceremony at St. Matthew and the reception at the University of Illinois Activities & Recreation Center -- a first for me! It is a great venue! For the second time this year, I went to the Tumble Inn on [...]
  • Joey | 10-month-old baby girl | Decatur photographer

  • This is my 10-month-old niece, Joey. She's been on this blog before, so you may remember her! I apologize in advance for the non-green grass (what can you do?!), and all the Ohio State gear. NOT MY CHOICE! :) The ones where the grass is green, I actually painted it in. Oh, the joys of having Ad[...]
  • Samantha + Jacob | Tuscola + Champaign iHotel wedding

  • The weather was finally gorgeous again on Saturday, July 28, and after nearly 2 months of photographing weddings through heat advisory, it was a welcome "break." Of course, I use the term "break" very, very loosely. :) Sam + Jacob were great sports throughout the day, and Sam told me many times th[...]
