Alisha and Joseph are Getting Married!

The question has been popped, proposal accepted and wedding plans in the works! Their wedding colors are a beautiful muted green and gorgeous metallic copper with Irish and Eastern European elements throughout the decor. I can’t wait to see all of their hard work and planning come together in September!

We were just so happy this engagement session was able to happen between thunderstorms. That’s Spring in the midwest though, right?!

An engagement session is actually such an important part of your wedding photography! Especially for those of us with no modeling experience, so….almost everyone! It gives us a chance to get to know each other better, for me to understand your relationship dynamics and for you to get a feel for how I direct and pose you. It truly helps make the rush of your wedding day portraits go SO. MUCH. SMOOTHER.

Plus…more cute pictures together are never a bad thing! :)

Torrie + Carson... One More Month to Go

Torrie and Carson contacted me several months ago about their wedding on March 23, 2019. I was thrilled to tell them that I had the date open! Carson is in the military and was away at the time so it was a few months later, right around Christmas, that we finally got to meet in person. That’s also when we did their engagement session. You guys, they made my job SO easy! These two are absolutely adorable, incredibly photogenic, and genuinely crazy about each other.

The long distance thing has to be hard for them, but you would never know it because of their optimism and positive outlook on life and what the future has to hold. I have no doubt they will make each other very happy for many years to come.

And the new chapter begins ONE month from TODAY!

Throwback to the Baby Bump

Today’s Throwback Thursday blog post is a maternity session from last Summer. It’s one of my favorite maternity shoots to date! Jenny and Zack are an awesome couple who both excel in helping people be better versions of themselves. They are very passionate about health and fitness and pass on those traits, not only to clients, but to their kids as well. This adorable baby bump is gone now and Jenny is working hard to get back to her old self. But I hope she doesn’t forget how beautiful she was during the pregnancy that led to the sweetest, chillest baby boy, Knoxxwell Knight!
