Arns Wedding | St. Louis MO

Heidi and I go way back. She is one of the nicest people you can ever meet. Heidi is also the most honest and humble person I know, and I am honored to call her my friend.

So fast forward and she meets this ridiculously good looking guy named Jerry and they decide to get married. And they honor me by asking me to be their photographer, and not only are they entrusting me with their special day but they then invite my husband and daughter to join in the celebration. So we turned it into a weekend getaway. Enjoying St. Louis's wine country at Mt. Pleasant Winery in Augusta MO. Everything there was perfect, and the staff was amazing, if you are getting married in Missouri I highly recommend doing it here!

I loved this trip and after surviving a very crazy drive through Missouri back county I got to see one of the most beautiful vinyards east of California. I can only imagine was a CA vineyard looks like.

Thank you Jerry and Heidi, you are two beautiful souls that found each other and I know will share many many years of blessings. And thank you for allowing me to have my husband and daughter there to enjoy not only in my passion, but also a fun night or tearing it up on the dance floor! I don't think Sam will ever forget it, nor Boyce and I. Dancing the anniversary dance was so humbling, every wedding should do that, being able to be up there with so many other couples was inspiring.

Megan & Viero | Wedding

Such a beautiful couple, both with mega-watt smiles! This was such a beautiful wedding, with so many friends and family celebrating these twos' love. It was another one of those days that you thought it was going to rain, but God blessed these two with a beautiful day filled with warm sunshine. Much love to both of you! Thank you for letting me be a part of your special day!

LaPointe Family | Lincoln Park IL

This little city kid has more style then me! Meet Levi, not only the coolest little kid, but one of the cutest! I know I know, I say this all the time. But really? Look at him, don't you want to just eat him up! You can see mom and dad passed on the good looking and style genes :) I love the city and it was great seeing all the improvements them made to the Lincoln Park area.

Salej Family | Park Ridge IL

This is a family I wish I could be related to. First off they are from Poland, and their sweet daughter speaks Polish, (can't get any more adorable right) and it all makes me yearn to go back to the days of spending Sundays at my great grandmas house. Where the smell of kloskis and ham filled the air.

Well this beautiful couple was blessed with another baby, this time an adorable little boy. Their daughter is a mini me of mom, and not sure who he is going to take after, but either route he is a lucky guy, both mom and dad are beautiful! And I have to admit this is one of my favorite shoots, because a lot of these pictures are real moments, and in my opinion, that beats fake smiles any day. Love ya guys!
