  • Diane's Dream | Dream Foundation vow renewal

  • Diane's dream was to remarry her husband in front of all their family and friends.

  • Annie + Matt | Willett's Winery wedding in Manito, IL

  • Where do I start with this one? Matt and I go way back to middle school (maybe before?)... I'm thinking we probably initially met somewhere around 5th grade and his cousin Kristina (my childhood best friend) introduced us. Kristina stood up with Matt as his "best woman" on Saturday, and it was so f[...]
  • Rachel + Torey | Hudson Farms wedding in rural Urbana

  • Emily from Mager Image Photography brought me on as a second shooter for Rachel + Torey's wedding at Hudson Farms in Urbana in late August.

  • Sarah + Tyson are a fun-loving, super down-to-earth couple who loves spending time outdoors together. They love visiting the Busey Woods in Urbana, so we started their wedding day photography there with their First Look. Then, on the way to the ceremony + reception site (Stone Creek), Sarah asked if[...]

  • Carole + Jim planned a beautiful ceremony and reception in Champaign at St. Matthews Church and the Hilton.
