my first attempt at being an… | illinois wedding photographer?


For my first real attempt at being a wedding photographer, I think I did okay!  I had a great time being the second shooter at Iulia and Allen’s wedding last week, thanks to my good friend Jeremy Fenelon of JFimagedesign!  The day was a bit breezy, but beautiful… although certainly not as beautiful as this happy bride!  This was one of the most Christ-filled weddings I have ever had the privilege of attending… from their poetic vows, to the awesome worship, and the lovely toasts given by members of the wedding party at the reception… it was clear to everyone that Christ will always be at the center of this marriage.  Thank you for allowing me to be a part of your wonderful day!  Perhaps Jeremy and I will pair up for some more elegant, extravagant, classy, and beautiful weddings like this in the future…..
