I feel so much joy when I get to step behind my camera and capture priceless moments for couples. I’m a big fan of ice cream, prefer late nights over early mornings, and live for planning my next big international journey.
The initial inspiration came from the grounds and extraordinary venue of Orchard Ridge Farms in Rockton, Illinois. It may be off the beat and path, but once you arrive on the property, you are transcended into a wonderful rustic location with orchards, a pond and a stellar pavilion. The excellent group of vendors wanted to highlight a specific part of the venue, the grand fireplace. This became the vocal point for the shoot with an elegant mix of textures and colors of neutral blues, greens and whites were incorporated. The added touches of fur in the rug and pillows added a luxe feel to the whole experience. Additionally, we took inspiration from the Royal Wedding to separate a three-tiered cake and display on different cake stands in various heights.
