FAMILY

Here in central Illinois we have a saying, "don't like the weather? Wait around a few minutes, it'll change!"  Change it did on this little family shoot.  We started out with a light breeze and light cloud cover to when we wrapped we were 3 minutes from heavy rain busting loose.  BUT! We had a nice 45 minute window and captured some memories with this little family.  As a father myself I understand how FAST those little years go and I'm sure its no different with this family.  Check out a sample from their session.  

Is a photo a throw away because the technical aspects are wrong, or is it a keeper because it provokes an emotion?

There are images I take that are "testers", shoot a pic to test my exposure , focal range, depth of field etc.  And sometimes you get a true gem like this one :)

Adina + Kevin | Wedding

ADINA + KEVIN

WEDDING

A wedding is a very sacred event.  But that doesn't mean the location or amount of people matters.  We've shot big grandiose catholic weddings, and now with Adina + Kevin our smallest most intimate wedding to date.  When its true love it's worth the wait.  Kevin is a Texas native and Adina is a central Illinois resident.  Four states and weeks of being apart only tied them together even stronger.  It's funny this love thing,  how two people that seem to be opposite end up being the perfect fit.  Adina, a head crisis ER nurse, and Kevin,  a IT professional still at a Texas corporation.  But love doesn't care, it doesn't see distance or job status or even impossibilities, love never fails.  Marriage can start in your VERY early 20's or when you've matured into your early 40's, love doesn't care.  Adina & Kevin don't need to fake it, it's in their eyes, it's in their talk and now in their joined lives.  We were honored to be asked to record this intimate family event.  It was a family only wedding & I don't think it should've been any other way.  Congratulations,  marriage is a journey, enjoy it.
