Juan and Rachel | Wedding

This amazing wedding had a mariachi band at the reception…need I say more? Rachel simply could not have been any more beautiful in her Kenneth Pool gown – she was radiant.  The reception was held at Senica’s Oak Ridge Golf Club in La Salle and on a night of crazy weather including far too many reports of tornadoes touching down, everyone inside shared a truly beautiful evening with this beautiful couple.


Bill and Amy | Vow Renewal

I met Amy at one of my favorite couple’s wedding a few years ago. She later got in touch with a request to capture a special vow renewal as well as her parent’s annivesary – of course I was thrilled! This was our first time shooting an event like this and it was such a wonderful experience. The weather had different plans than Amy’s, but not before we were able to run around the campground her parent’s own and make use of the gorgeous dark skies and perfect moody lighting. Truthfully the rain didn’t make this event any less beautiful. The floor to ceiling windows in the lodge were a perfect backdrop and the couple’s cheerful demeanor despite the change in plans was testament to a wonderful marriage.
Here’s to 70 more marvelous years together!
