After their first date over tacos and beer, these two knew they were endgame!! As Katie + Brad graduated college and navigated life together, they always remained on the same page and their love grew stronger and stronger. In 2019, Brad planned a surprise proposal at Monet’s garden in Giverney, France… talk about a DREAM!!! Katie’s whole family was there to witness and celebrate the occasion!

From prom dates to husband and wife, Julianna and Mitch have a classic high school sweethearts type love story!! These two have been together for TEN YEARS… so when Mitch proposed around the holidays in 2018, it was an instant, no-brainer YES for Julianna! These two have so much in common. They’re from the same home town, they both love ice cream + traveling, oh! And they even share the same birthday!!!

Julianna + Mitch’s Heritage Prairie Farm Wedding

What do you get when you combine pastels, puppies, and lots of petals?? THE CUTEST WEDDING EVER. This was a very special shoot for me, because my sweet puppy Camper got to participate alongside his brother Stanley!! (And between wrestling and trying to chew each other’s floral collars off, we even managed to get a handful of ADORABLE photos!)

Last month Christine and Mark got married at one of Chicago’s most beautiful venues, Galleria Marchetti.

It wasn’t three months after Tammy and Hunter met that they discovered they were each other’s equals. When they got engaged, Tammy said she wanted a small wedding – just closest family and friends who supported them as a couple. They dreamed of a destination affair in California, outdoors by the water, with pretty string lights and food everyone would enjoy.

I’m continually blown away by the beautiful places + people I’m able to experience as a wedding photographer, and this intimate wedding in Wine Country was no exception! Beltane Ranch is a charming inn and historic landmark in Sonoma. Set among olive orchards, vineyards, heirloom gardens, and even free-range chickens, it’s the perfect California escape. […]

Spend just a few minutes in their presence and you’ll feel right at home. They are sweet and caring… both for each other and for those around them. But my favorite thing about Val and Alex?? They truly are the best of friends! You can see it in the warm smiles they share and in […]

I’ve been looking forward to Mel and George’s wedding for what feels like forever, and for so many reasons, I know it’ll be a day I never forget!!

Tiffany and Dillon’s wedding at Redemption Ranch just outside St. Louis was gorgeous down to every last detail… and what else would you expect when a wedding photographer gets married herself??
