  • Marie + Drew | Champaign Parks engagement photography

  • Marie + Drew are planning an elegant country club wedding for next June. They were the first couple to book me for 2015! They didn't have a preference as to where we met for the session, so I suggested a couple local parks -- one I hadn't been to in a few years, and one that I'd never photographed [...]
  • Kevin + Brent | UI Arboretum engagement session

  • Kevin + Brent are a super sweet couple! I'm very much looking forward to their black tie wedding in Urbana this September. It was a pleasure to meet Brent's kids at the session, as well as the couple's two dogs. We started out the session at the University of Illinois Arboretum, and then I talked[...]
  • Beth + Ryan : Central Illinois engagement photography

  • Beth + Ryan are getting married next summer near Jacksonville, but they trekked over to Champaign for their engagement session.

  • Sarah + Isaac are from upstate New York, but are in C-U for a little while as Sarah is in vet school.

I suggested Meadowbrook Park as our setting, and I love the variation of looks we got, especially[...]

The Arboretum is absolutely gorgeous in August and September, and I love the contrast of their simple black shirts/blue jeans against the[...]

  • Who's enjoying this heat wave? Well, just before the cool snap ended, I met up with Kirby + Kyle in downtown Champaign near the old train station for their engagement session. After a quick outfit change, we headed over to a spot in Urbana that I'd been eyeing for a few more shots with some wildfl[...]
  • Amanda + Kipton : Gibson City engagement session

  • I ventured up to Ford county again last week for an engagement session with Amanda + Kipton. They wanted to get a few shots at the old Harvest Moon Drive-In movie theater in Gibson City, followed by some images at various spots around town. They both spent part of their childhood living in Gibson [...]
  • Janell + Spencer : UI South Farms engagement session

  • I met up with Spencer + Janell at the South Farms on the University of Illinois campus on a VERY gusty day last week to do their engagement session. We weren't sure the winds were going to cooperate, but we made it through, and came out with some great images! I love the locations they chose that [...]
  • Abby + Justin : Helms Park Champaign engagement session

  • Abby + Justin met me at the relatively new Helms Park in Champaign on a rare Saturday evening session opening. It turned out to be prom central, but we managed to work our way around the park without any prom goers in the background! I'm finally happy to photograph sessions at this park now that t[...]
