Mark and Christa : Engaged | Wheaton Illinois


My mom tells me Christa and I met each other when we were like six, apparently, we had them over for lunch or went to McDonald's or something.
Obviously, I don't remember our first meeting but I do remember reconnecting years later when we were teenagers. We played some frisbee together, went on some camping trips and such.
Life got busy, she moved away, and went on to school, I started my business and got married.
But I was thrilled to hear from her after eight years, she was getting married and wondered if I could shoot the wedding for her!
 Two days ago we got to travel up to the Chicago area to reconnect, meet Mark and do their engagement session!
It was great to have them tell us their story. Things like love at first sight, almost breaking up, learning more about the Lord together... 
And I can't tell you how excited I am about their wedding! It's going to be at a park and on a boat!

Christa and Mark, it was so good to get to know you two as a couple, we had such a great time on your shoot! See ya again soon!

George and Lauren : Engaged | St. Mary of the Woods Photograpaher


George and Lauren's was an engagement shoot for the memory archives!
They came all the way from CO to have their shoot done and we planned to shoot at St. Mary of the Woods College where Lauren went to school.
We couldn't do the evening so we had to schedule a sunrise shoot but the only sunrise that was available turned into a full-blown-dark-as-night-thunder-and-lighting storm. 
It was quite the adventure but finally the storm passed and we were able to get outside and finish up the session.
Needless to say, I feel like we've already bonded and made some good memories with these two and I'm looking forward to their June wedding!

Ian and Rachel : Wedding | Muncie Wedding Photographer


Saturday was such a happy day!
The day was a little cold, but that's to be expected with a March wedding in the Midwest.
The cold didn't stop outdoor portraits or everyone from being good sports and making the whole day a blast.
I've known Rachel quite a few years now but didn't know I'd have the honor of being her photographer. I loved seeing her find the love of her life and looking absolutely radiant on her big day.
Ian and Rachel complement each other so well and I'm excited to get to know them better as a couple.
(Come visit us, we're not that far!)
One of my very favorite moments of the whole day was when Ian walked out onto the stage and said just barely loud enough for the pastor and I to hear "I'm so happy".
And he was, like I said, the whole day was just happy from start to finish.
