Kasey & Will // Peoria IL Weddings

You are loved. You are loved more than you know. I hereby pledge all of my days to prove it so. // Sleeping at Last, “Light”

This October wedding is close to my heart because it was the wedding day of one of my dear friends! I was so honored when she asked me to photograph her & Will’s big day. Photographing a wedding is such a huge responsibility that I don’t take lightly. I go into each day determined to capture every moment, big and small, so that my sweet couples have beautiful documentation of their amazing day.

Some heavy rain threatened to keep all of the portraits inside, but it completely stopped in time for ALL of the outdoor photos! So, so thankful! God definitely hear my many prayers. I hope you enjoy looking through these lovely reminders of a gorgeous autumn wedding.

Chris & Madeleine // Peoria, IL Couple Session

Madeleine and Chris are such a fun couple! I met Madeleine a few years ago through a Facebook group for Christian artists & creatives and was able to meet up for coffee with her when she was in my area. Fast forward a couple years and Madeleine is now married to Chris and they make such a cute couple. They compliment each other so well and were absolutely a blast to photograph. 

Shout out to 3030 Coffee Shop in Peoria for fueling our session with yummy coffee & tea!

Ben & Maddie // Eureka, IL Mentor Session

About a month ago I had the opportunity to have a mentoring session with Abby of Abby Jo Photography , which included a  really fun couple session with Ben and Maddie. It was so much fun getting to watch and earn alongside Abby as she walked me through this session.

Fun fact:

Maddie runs her own clothing boutique, Hello Beautiful Boutique , and wore a few clothing pieces & jewelry in her photos. Make sure to go check out her website when you're done here!

a HUGE thank you to Abby Jo for setting up this session! I learned so much and am already seeing improvements in my work after my time with her. I can not recommend mentor sessions highly enough! I promise that you'll come away feeling so refreshed and excited to delve deeper into your business.

Andrew + Elizabeth // Eureka, IL Engagement Session

I'm so excited to be sharing these photos with you today! When Elizabeth asked me to take her engagement photos I knew I was in for a treat. I had taken Elizabeth's senior photos way back when I first started photography and already knew she was photogenic. As expected, she was still just as photogenic and she and Andrew made the cutest couple ever. Despite them saying otherwise, they were total naturals in front of the camera.
