Sarah and Eric

I had the pleasure of photographing Sarah and Eric’s wedding the other week at one of coolest venues in Illinois, The Silver Fox. It was an old Masonic Temple that they turned into a swanky speakeasy feeling wedding venue. Seriously, everywhere you turn at this place is an opportunity to make great photos. The day started with one of the groomsmen combing through their extensive vinyl collection which set the mood of the day. Their ceremony was held upstairs in an old auditorium and the reception was downstairs in a refurbished community room. I had a wonderful time spending the day with Sarah and Eric and I can’t wait to show them all the photos!

Here’s a list of their vendors:

Venue: The Silver Fox
DJ: Shah Quaiyoom
Hair: Corpo Bello Salon
Makeup: Stef Krause
Caterer: Mark Allen’s in Peru, IL
Dessert: The Ottawa Bakery
Alcohol: Streator Drugs

Whitney and Eric

It’s officially spring (I think!!) and with that it means things start to pick up around here. I did some engagement photos for Whitney and Eric a few months ago in the middle of winter but they wanted to take advantage of the spring flowers and hired me to do a second session! I had a blast working with them and I can’t wait to photograph their wedding this fall! I was trying to talk them into doing some summer portraits as well so we can get in all the seasons. Hopefully, they take me up on that!

David and Tayler

David and Tayler had a beautiful, Spring wedding in downtown Geneva, a couple of weeks back. Weather looked iffy leading up to their big day, but they ended up with an incredible March afternoon! David and Tayler got ready at the historic Herrington Inn, and had the sweetest first look. David couldn’t keep his eyes off of his stunning bride, and we loved the way his entire face lit up when he saw her walking toward him

We had so much fun doing portraits along the beautiful Fox River, and their bridal party was so fun to be around!

Their ceremony at Riverside Receptions was beautiful and heartfelt, and the florals by Kio Kreations that were along the aisle and draped the Chuppah, were stunning! We love that they had a friend act as their officiant, and the music they chose was spot-on!

Their reception was filled with laughter, great food, dancing and incredible music; provided by the lovely and talented Rachel of Toast & Jam!

David and Tayler, we are so glad you asked us to be a part of your beautiful day. It was truly an honor.
