Danielle : Bridal Shoot : Laguna Beach CA

The blog's been a little quiet recently, I've been taking my annual 'little break from shooting', I've been really sick, and Winter is just a slower time for weddings here in the Midwest.

I'm breaking the silence with one of my shoots I did on my recent trip to California!  
My husband and I have discovered that we need to make time to do some traveling and spend quality time together to get a little reset and recharge for ourselves. And this trip did just that!

The first night we flew in we headed straight for the beach and met Danielle there for her shoot.
Danielle is super fun, kind, and gorgeous. It was a blast shooting with her!

Make sure to come back next week, wedding season is starting for us this weekend!

Matt and Jeanette : Engaged | Brown County Engagement Photographer

Here it is, the first engagement shoot of the new year!
(The one I thought I was falling twenty feet into the creek but didn't.)
I think we successfully chose the coldest day of January to do this shoot.
But as you can see they were great sports and make cold look romantic.
I had a great time shooting with these two.
Matt has been my husband's lifelong friend, and his sister is one of my best friends. And you might recognize the lovely Jeanette as a sister/bridesmaid from Sherry and Nathaniel's wedding last year.
I gotta say I'm pretty happy for these two, I think they complement each other so well and I'm excited for their wedding in the Summer!

Josh and Kim : Wedding | Downers Grove Wedding Photographer

Here it is, the last wedding of 2016!
Kim and Josh got married last Friday surrounded by a bunch of family and friends.
The wedding was in the same church my parents got married in almost 28 years ago, so that was fun for me to go back.
Kim and Josh met quite a few years ago but they didn't really start talking till a few years back.
They are both very good musicians, Kim plays the harp and Josh the violin and would see each other each year at a music camp in the Chicagoland area.
Well, long story short they decided they liked each other quite a bit and felt the Lord leading them to marriage. After a year of long distance engagement they very happily vowed their lives to one another on a cold, but not too cold December day.

Josh and Kim, I'm going to dare to say that 2017 will be your favorite year yet!
Thank you for entrusting your wedding photography to me.
Have fun in whatever warm place you've escaped to!
