2016 Wedding Collection | Photographer Favorites

With another wedding season in the books we thought it would be fun to bring back some of the outstanding moments from this past year.

First, we want to thank each and every couple and their families for inviting us to capture their special day of love and fun.  We understand that your wedding day is a very special family event and we try to do all that we can to capture meaningful photographs that you will enjoy with your family for many years to come.

Like each year, we witnessed some gorgeous events, emotional moments and over the top hilarity.  2016 was no different.  While we typically criss cross the state photographing weddings, in 2016 we were pretty much close to home here in Central Illinois.  Which meant that we got home much earlier than normal. 🙂

Most of the photos that you will see below are real moments with a few portraits and a few details sprinkled in here and there.  By and large our focus on the wedding day is attempting to capture the real moments, the real emotions, your real life.

Additionally, each photo is a hot link to the full blog post that the photo was taken from.  So if you would like to see more about the wedding that the photo came from, just mouse over the photo and click on it.  We pulled 2-5 photos from each wedding, enjoy!

Again, congrats to all of our clients, we wish you many years of happiness.

Lastly, a huge thank you to all those that helped me with my weddings this past year, especially Brittany who did most of my editing.  Thanks to Hannah too, who had been my employee from 2013-16 came back to cove a few weddings with me while Brittany’s foot healed.  Also thanks to Shannon!  They all did a great job and I could never have done it all by myself.

Allerton Park Autumn Engagement Session

What a lovely day at Allerton Park!  Christie and Sahej could not have picked a nicer day for their engagement session.  Fall colors were still a little scarce even though we were at the mid-october point.  A very late fall this year.  But we managed to find what we needed, a little yellow here, a little red there.  Place one nice looking couple who are in love with each other in this setting and you have instant engagement photos!  Just add a dash of sunlight to this recipe!

Congrats to Christie and Sahej on their engagement!  You look marvelous in your photos and we can’t wait for your Spring 2017 wedding at the iHotel in Champaign.

PS: Thanks once agin to Brittany for all her help lighting this session.

Holy Cross Church Wedding Lincolnshire Fields Country Club Reception

What do shotgun shells, goldfish and doughnuts have in common?  Well they all add up to a crazy fun wedding day!  Yes, shotgun shell boutonnieres, a very cool DYI!  Definitely a guy thing.  Real live goldfish in goldfish bowls on the reception tables.  And doughnuts on the dance floor!  If you haven’t tried it yet don’t knock it!

An absolutely gorgeous fall day provided the backdrop for this lovely wedding.  Steffanie and Tony were surrounded by supportive family and close friends who traveled from near and far.  Steffani’s two sister proved some great laughs during their speeches while Tony’s two brothers totally roasted him during their speeches, poor guy!  Great laughs had by all and Cub fans were happy too because their beloved Cubbies were beating the Dodgers in the NLCS.

Great wedding to attend and photograph! Our congrats to Steffanie and Tony may you have many years of happiness together! Please feel free to leave your personal congratulations to Steffanie and Tony at the bottom in the comments box.
