I was thrilled to be invited to photograph Kevin and Amanda's gorgeous wedding at Wine Country Gardens in Defiance, MO.  The whole day was full of simple, beautiful details from Amanda's grandma's pearls, to white hydrangeas and twinkle lights.  Kevin and Amanda were surrounded by their friends and family loving and laughing.  The dancing carried us into the night. With a few finishing touches that gave nod to the military service of Kevin and his groomsmen, the day was a masterpiece. We are thankful to all our military families for their service and honored to be a part of Kevin and Amanda's wedding day.  Thank you to my friends Doug and Dene' who referred us for this wedding.  Your faith in us is the highest compliment.

It never stops taking my breath away, those tucked away Illinois towns.  The vastness of the beauty and goodness of the food and the greatness of the hospitality.  Alto Pass, IL is no acceptation.  Greg and Sarah invited me to shoot their engagement session in a place that means so much to them.  Sarah is the events coordinator at Von Jakob Winery & Brewery  where the rolling hills of southern Illinois flourish, and the food is worth every bit of the drive.  Fall was in full bloom, colors sweeping the spectrum. Here are some of my favorites from that amazing fall day!Greg and Sarah Engagement 10-21-14 Greg and Sarah Engagement 10-21-14Greg and Sarah Engagement 10-21-14 Greg and Sarah Engagement 10-21-14 Greg and Sarah Engagement 10-21-14 Greg and Sarah Engagement 10-21-14 Greg and Sarah Engagement 10-21-14 Greg and Sarah Engagement 10-21-14
