Despite the chilly weather, the fall colors are absolutely stunning right now in the Midwest. I was lucky to get outside with a fantastic family, and an incredible couple. Both these shoots were really inspiring to me and I wanted to share a picture from each. More will follow in the next week or so.
One of my favorite parts of this job is getting the opportunity to meet new people and learn about other people's life stories. Every now and then, I get the opportunity to work with a group, who have been a giant part of my life. This was one of those shoots. Tim has been one of my best friends since high school and I am so thankful to know that I will have him by my side for the rest of my life. I'm also very thankful that he met someone as amazing as Anna, who for the past couple of years, has become as big of a part of our family as Tim. The energy and enthusiasm for all of their many passions is a giant motivator for all of those who know them. It is absolutely impossible to have a bad day when you are around these two. The goofiness, the compassion, and the all around good nature attitude these two portray on a day to day basis makes everyone around them better. Thank you guys for having me do these photos for you, and a bigger thank you for asking me to stand up with you on your big day! I can't wait!
A couple of weeks ago I was honored to photograph one of my best friends Andrew and his fiance Dani. This photo shoot was unlike anything I've done to date and I couldn't be more happy with the results.
We traveled down to Illinois State University since this was the place these two first met and had some great photo opportunities while walking all over campus. Then we found a little spot to set up a series of photos that Dani had thought up and brought to life. This was the first time I had a client come to me with a vision and did most of the leg work to make it happen. For this I thank you Dani! When it comes to photo shoots I usually enjoy being the one in control, but watching your vision come to life and me just being their to capture it was a lot of fun.
I look forward to your wedding next Summer and I wish the two of you the absolute best.
