Bringing you inspiration for your magical day
On Saturday, September 24, we were honored to capture the wedding of Alondra and Kenny at Farm Friends in Big Rock, IL. Farm Friends is a not-for-profit farm that welcomes individuals with special needs to visit their farm and interact with animals. Their wedding was full of personalized motifs. Alondra had a mug with her new name, "Mrs. Robbins, " perfect for toasting with her bridesmaids as they got ready. Another personalized item was the ring holder, a tree-stump with their initials "A+K," carried by their son as he walked down the aisle. The farm had a gazebo that was the perfect setting for the ceremony; it was decorated with burlap and haystacks. After the ceremony we snuck away to take wedding party portraits in front of a beautiful pond on the farm. Alondra and Kenny kicked off their reception with their first dance. Kenny actually made the dance floor a few hours before the wedding started! It turned out amazing! After dinner, the couple cut their beautiful 2-tiered cake adorned with sunflowers, using their knife and server that also had their "A+K" initials. Once the party started, their guests danced the night away, Kenny's groomsmen were definitely the life of the party! Congrats Alondra and Kenny! Cheers to a happy marriage!

Nicole and Scott's engagement session was so much fun to capture! The weather was perfect for a fall October day! Nicole and Scott were referred to us by Dessa Event Planning and we couldn't be more happier to capture their special day next September.
On the day of our engagement/family shoot the Bidgood family came dressed out of a magazine! Nicole messaged me a few weeks before the session with outfit suggestions and she definitely did a great job coordinating everyone's outfit.
Kicking-off the session, we started by taking family photos. Their son Mikey was the cutest! He was a little reluctant to take photos at first, but when Scott offered to give him a few SweetTarts, Mikey agreed to smile for the camera. It was so funny to watch the face Mikey made because the candy was a little sour!
After the family session, Nicole's parents, who were there to give us a helping hand, watched the little ones while I whisked Nicole and Scott away for their engagement session. Immediately into the session I could tell Scott knows how to make Nicole laugh. Their playful love for one another was such a joy to watch! I'm sure their wedding day will be just as fun to capture. Congrats Nicole and Scott!
