Stephanie + Robert | Champaign County Courthouse wedding
 
  • Stephanie + Robert | Champaign County Courthouse wedding

  • It's no secret that I love weekday courthouse weddings! I do so much of my photography work on weekends, so when I get the chance to shoot on a weekday, and over the lunch hour no less, I jump at the chance! As always, the lighting in the courthouse is terrible, but we make it work, and it's actua[...]

Pear Tree Estate | White theme tasting event
 
  • Pear Tree Estate | White theme tasting event

  • Pear Tree Estate hosted another one of their full-service tasting events last week, and I was fortunate enough to get to photograph it (and EAT!!). PTE has hospitality down to a science and their mantra is that magic happens over a table-full of excellent food, so a magnificent spread is always on [...]

  • Elvan + Brad | Champaign County Courthouse wedding

  • I am a BIG fan of courthouse weddings! In fact, my husband and I were married at the Champaign County Courthouse a few years ago (we don't need to say how many!) :) These ceremonies may be short and with just a few family and friends, but they are so authentic, relaxed and always sweet. I highly [...]

  • Taylor + Shane | Morton + Pekin Country Club wedding

  • A couple months ago, I had the pleasure of working alongside Melanie from Melanie Anderson Photography as her second shooter. That day, we photographed the beautiful wedding day of Taylor + Shane in Morton, followed by their reception at the Pekin Country Club. I love second shooting from time to [...]

  • Ashlei + Dave | Tinley Park Odyssey Country Club Wedding

  • After a long winter with not much of a chance for outdoor portraits, I was so raring to go for the 2015 wedding season! I got started with a bang with Ashlei + Dave's wedding in Tinley Park, where we started with both the guys and girls getting ready at the Holiday Inn. The hotel was just a few-mi[...]

Pear Tree Estate | Champaign Wedding Venue Tasting Event
 
  • Pear Tree Estate | Champaign Wedding Venue Tasting Event

  • I had the pleasure of photographing the food for a tasting event held at Pear Tree Estate last week. I have a couple of weddings booked there for 2015 (and even one for 2016!), and was lucky enough to run into one of my couples there -- so fun! The staff there even sent me home with a goodie bag o[...]
Katie + Cal | Crescent City | Kankakee Hilton Garden Inn wedding
 
Mary + Zach | Champaign Country Club wedding
 
  • Mary + Zach | Champaign Country Club wedding

  • You know it's going to be a great wedding day when you walk into the reception venue and the very first thing you see is the table layout you see in the first image below. I knew ahead of time a bit about Mary's interesting color scheme, but I really couldn't picture it in my head until I saw this.[...]

Sarah + Gus | Holy Cross + CityView wedding
 
  • Sarah + Gus | Holy Cross + CityView wedding

  • Sarah + Gus had a gorgeous wedding day in Champaign last Saturday. I met up with the girls first at Sarah + Gus's house in Urbana where we did the finishing touches on Sarah's makeup, courtesy of Brittany of BC Makeup Artistry. Sarah looked amazing! I was also able to stop by the CityView termina[...]
