Mark + Hayley

I was so excited to photograph two really great friends for their engagement!  I met Mark years ago as we served together in the Campus Ministry at UIS (CSF!).  He was always thinking of others and dedicated to serving.  And then, when I interned with the same ministry, it was my honor to be a part of Hayley’s life as she grew into an awesome woman of God.  I can’t say enough about these two individuals.  And I can’t wait to see what the Lord will do with them as a married couple!  Here are a few of my favorites from our day in Washington Park.

Seth + Loryn

  It was so fun getting to meet Loryn and Seth (while freezing my fingers off in the process!) and capturing their relationship and engagement. They were such a sweet couple and I wish them all the best on their wedding this coming weekend!  Thanks for letting me be a part of your story, guys!

Tomo + Hannah

The day Hannah emailed me, was the day I began getting excited about this engagement session! I hadn’t done one in awhile and they are some of my favorite “stories” to tell! I love the anticipation before the wedding and the adoration in their eyes for one another.  I also love getting to know them as people and what their interests are.  When Hannah told me her fiance, Tomo, is from England, I got even more excited! Naturally, when he came for a visit, we had to use the opportunity.   When the day of the shoot came I was horribly sick and running a fever.  Hannah and Tomo could hardly even understand me, since I had begun to lose my voice.  But with a tiny window, we pushed through.  Thank the heavens it ended up being one of the warmest winter days we had.  (You may not believe this was a late December day).  Thanks again to Hannah and Tomo for choosing me for their engagement session and being so kind and patient as I struggled through the day. It may have helped that a British accent, a coffee shop (thanks again Moxo!) and the Beatles were involved.  Congrats again to the awesome couple as their wedding gets closer and closer:  I wish you all the best!
