I’m so excited to be photographing Rachel’s wedding. She has been a long-time friend and co-worker. You’ll be seeing her wedding here on the blog next week as she is getting married this weekend! I’m beyond excited to be a part of her special day!

Oh gracious. Where do I begin with Dan & Mollie? How about their love for Jesus? Let’s start there. Joy seeped through our conversations, and we actually didn’t even meet until our engagement session together. But when you come across a couple who is waiting, who is treasuring and who is believing.. there is a deeper anticipation that nothing of this world can quench. I believe it was put inside of us because we all are awaiting the arrival of our heavenly Bridegroom! I sincerely loved getting to know Dan & Mollie as they prepared for marriage. It was an honor to serve this amazing couple and bring such an close perspective of the love to the blog!

    These are beautiful Julie! You and Jared are so talented, and we were all blessed to have you share the day with us!ReplyCancel

There are so many amazing notes that I could write here about Jodi & Anies and our experience together. A few immediate words come to mind: joy, authenticity, and class. Jodi held herself in an calm state despite a few mishaps earlier on in the day and popped open that bottle of champagne like no one’s business!  SHE’S GETTING MARRIED!

Shortly after arriving at the Rail Golf Course in Springfield, IL, Jodi & Anies prepared to meet each other under a grove of trees on the course. They took a few moments to read their personal vows to one another which was the absolute SWEETEST.

From a maternity session to a newborn session, this is one of my favorites. I say that because the miracle of life will never cease to amaze me. The way a little babe is formed in the womb and how God calls the baby to make his/her triumphant (literally) entrance! Lisa knows a little bit about a triumphant entrance.. I mean really, all of us MOM’s do!! Aside from all the labor and delivery, what we walk away with is this: An undying, never-stopping, never-breaking love that we’re quite positive will make our hearts explode. And we wouldn’t want it any other way. Travis & Lisa, we pray blessing on sweet Ella Jean and the plan that God has for her!

If you are familiar with my blog, you will have seen this adorable couple already. Katie is a past bride and honestly, what greater compliment than to photograph her and Cody’s firstborn? No greater HONOR! I’m thrilled to share these images with them, and our blog audience as well!
