Shawna & Jeff

Shawna & Jeff

If rain on your wedding day is a sign of good luck, then Jeff and Shawna are quite a lucky couple! The Buskers were married in McConnell, IL on September 28, 2013, with the reception in Lena, IL. I met Shawna when she was a bridesmaid in Heather and Brandon’s wedding last fall. I could immediately tell she had the biggest heart, and I was so excited when she asked me to be her wedding photographer.

Jeff and Shawna were blending their families, and their three kids (Jeff’s daughter and Shawna’s son and daughter) are just the cutest, most loving children I’ve had the chance to photograph in a long time. And talk about a photogenic family!

Jennifer & Steve

Jennifer & Steve

Jen and Steve were married on May 7, 2012 at the Meadows Club in Rolling Meadows, Illinois.  A rainy, overcast Monday in the Chicago suburbs provided a lush background for outdoor photos, while ensuring the bride and groom a little luck on their wedding day.  A Monday wedding, you wonder?  Jen and Steve have an interesting story.

Steve, a Chicago native, went to the University of Hawaii, where he met Jen.  They fell in love, and Steve proposed to Jen on the picturesque Waikiki Beach.  How’s that for a picture perfect proposal, ladies?!  Jen decided to move back to Chicago with Steve to attend nursing school after college.  They decided to hold the wedding the Monday after Jen graduated, so her family could attend both events in one trip from Hawaii.

Heather contacted me a few months before I moved to Texas.  She loved my work, and although I was moving, I decided to shoot her wedding — boy am I glad I did!  Heather and Brandon’s love is palpable — you can feel it when they look into each others’ eyes.

Pulling into Lena, IL, I knew Heather and Brandon had been blessed with an extraordinary wedding day.  The fall colors and mild temperatures made for beautiful pictures to last a lifetime. Lake Le-Aqua-Na provided a picturesque backdrop for this green and purple themed bridal party!
