I’m an introverted extrovert. And although I’m a terrible singer, I love to chant my favorite songs – everything from T. Swift to hip hop – when I’m in the car! I love tiramisu and coffee with too much milk. Scarves are one of my must-have accessories! I’m addicted to design of all kinds – interior, landscape, graphic, food, fashion, all of it.
With the heatwave that has been hovering over the Midwest this summer, I was wondering if we might possibly melt during Jenny and Eric’s Day After session. Although after their perfect Plum Creek Golf Club wedding day just two months earlier, I should have known that the weather would follow suit, if only for these two amazing people. Jenny and Eric have that special quality that attracts people to them. They radiate happiness and positivity. And it’s contagious. In a good way. It was evident at their wedding, and that same feeling followed us throughout this session. I left the session smiling and singing my favorite songs all the way home. Jenny and Eric, I’m so glad we met, and I’m even more glad that we got to spend more time together for some fun with your adorable pup, Miss Vivi! Thank you for being so wonderful, and for inviting me into your lives. I’m so excited for your future together! And now for a few of my favorites from your session!
After a fun engagement session and their fabulous wedding, I was lucky enough to spend some more time with Jessica and Derek after their Big Day. More than just an excuse to wear her gorgeous dress again and to see her new husband all decked out in his tux, they weathered the steamy temps to get some beautiful and romantic portraits in a more relaxed environment. With jam packed timelines typical of a wedding day, this session allows the bride and groom to just be together and enjoy each other’s company without any stress or demands. And these kinds of portraits were very important to Jessica, a girl after my own heart! Jessica and Derek, thank you for letting go and trusting me with this session. Besides being such a dashing duo, you’re so fun, so kind, and so wonderful! Let’s get straight to their images, shall we?
We couldn’t have asked for a nicer day for Kayleigh and Michael’s Day After/Trash the Dress session! After their gorgeous garden wedding over the summer, I was so excited to see them again! They were still glowing and incredibly happy newlyweds, and best of all, they were ready to rock it for their session. 😉 Here are some of my favorites from our afternoon!
It was a warm early fall afternoon. Cindi and John arrived with a nervous excitement, similar to how they felt on their wedding day last summer. They promised to love, honor, and cherish each other on a rainy 4th of July. And on this day, just like that day, I could feel their connection, only under a bright sunny sky, and I loved it! We had been planning their Day After session for some time, and I’m so glad we waited for such a gorgeous day! What a fun excuse to wear a simply gorgeous wedding gown one more time! Cindi and John, thank you for sharing your afternoon with me! You two are such a perfect pair, so happy and beautiful! Here are some of my favorites from their Day After session!
