Tina + Joon | Holiday wedding at Hilton Champaign
 
  • Tina + Joon | Holiday wedding at Hilton Champaign

  • Tina + Joon planned their wedding for the day after Christmas, which worked out great, except for all the RAIN Champaign got that day and the next two! We didn't have too many options for photos, but we used as much of the Hilton property as we could to maximize their wedding collection. We starte[...]

  • Emily + Jordan | Pear Tree Estate winter wedding

  • Emily + Jordan were blessed with this amazing unseasonably mild December we're having at their wedding this past Saturday. I woke up to sunny skies, and couldn't have been more thrilled for this pair! Pear Tree was all decked out for the holidays too, which tied in nicely with the couple's metallic[...]

  • Katie + Ray | Silvercreek Urbana wedding photography

  • Katie + Ray were married the day after Thanksgiving in a sweet, intimate ceremony in the greenhouse at Silvercreek in Urbana.

  • 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[...]

  • Disney World 2015 | Summer Family Trip

  • My mom started talking in 2014 about taking my son Maximus (now 5) and my nephew Nevan (now 8) to Disney World this year. We decided that my daughter was too young to go, so my husband Aaron stayed home with her, and Mom and my stepdad Joe invited my brother Nate, sister Stephanie and I to go along [...]
