Q. What’s your one piece of advice for brides-to-be for their wedding day?
A. Enjoy every moment. Let go of the stress and planning and just be in it. Something will absolutely happen that isn’t planned. It can turn out to be a wonderful blessing. We had planned our ceremony outside and it rained and stormed which caused last minute changes. However, it turned out to be an even more beautiful and candlelit ceremony inside and we got some great pictures outside in the rain. Just enjoy it, no matter what happens!

Meridian Banquets | Rolling Meadows | Marie+Francis

Where do I begin with these two. Jen and I immediately struck a strong relationship with Marie and Francis because they reminded us of…us. This fun loving couple, along with their beautiful daughter, Francheska can now start a new chapter in their lives. Please help me congratulate Marie and Francis!

Parkway Banquet Center | Ingleside Wedding Photographer | Cindy+John

I have to say this was one of the memorable weddings Jen and I shot.  Cindy and John were just the happiest people in love and they weren’t ashamed to show it!

While Cindy was getting her hair done at Legacy Salon & Spa, John was home patiently waiting….watching college football.
