Rebecca & Derek Tie the Knot

I had a wonderful time photographing Rebecca and Derek’s wedding celebration over the weekend. Their beautiful ceremony took place at St Paul’s Lutheran Church and was followed by a reception at the Rening Center in Toledo.  Check back soon for more of their wedding day.


I met Eyan and Shawna at Walnut Woods State Park for a session to celebrate their one year anniversary. These two were so much fun to work with, and so obviously in love, that getting great shots like the one below were so easy. If you’re interested in a session of your own, please contact me today!

My second of two sessions over the weekend was with Kelliegh and her adorable family. They were up for anything, and we had a fun time traipsing around her parent’s beautiful property in St. Charles. Here’s a sneak peek from their session, but please check back soon to see more.

Sidney & Kyle’s Esession

I spent my Sunday afternoon with Sidney & Kyle, shooting their engagement session in the Winterset City Park. I often suggest my clients bring along their beloved pets to our session, and I’m so glad they did.  Max the dog added a whole lot of spunk and fun to this shoot! Enjoy this sneak peek from the afternoon, but be sure to check back for more from their session.

Kelsey & Caleb

Kelsey and Caleb married in July but celebrated with family and friends over the past weekend.  Jed and I had a wonderful time providing photography and photo booth services, and I’m so pleased with the way the pictures turned out.  For now, enjoy this sneak peek but check back soon to see more from their amazing day.
