Rachel and Brandon’s Engagement Session <3

Can’t wait for Rachel and Brandon’s wedding next June!! <3 <3 It is going to be sooo much fun! Everyone knows how much I love a barn dance and that's exactly what they are having! So excited!

How sweet are these two lovebirds! We were able to shoot these awesome engagement photos at Rachel's aunt's fabulous farm. Loved it! And props to the future gorgeous bride for picking out the BEST outfits ever (and Brandon, too, because I think he picked out at most of his outfits). Love love love love love.

Scottie and Christine’s Wedding <3

Kurt and I were so very blessed to photograph the GORGGGGEOUSSSSS fall wedding of Scottie and Christine. Everything from the dress to the shoes to the rings to the flowers to the cake to THEM to the speeches to the reception was truly LOVELY.

Scottie grew up in the area and moved to Florida a few years ago, where he met Christine. Christine has lived in both New Jersey AND in Florida. I know what you’re thinking… but don’t worry, Kurt strictly forbid me from asking Christine about the Jersey Shore. It wasn’t easy, I assure you. ;)

Behold the absolute loveliness of their day. Flowers by Clazzy Designs, Davenport. Getting ready location was Blackhawk Hotel, Davenport.

Their pug, Meatball, made the trip from Florida, too! And, in true wedding-day spirit, also donned a tux…omg, I want to adopt him!

And if I know anything at all about being married, it’s if all husbands looked at their wives the way Scottie looks at Christine, this world, truly, would be a happier place…

Both boys approved of the dress…

They were married at St. Anne’s in Long Grove, the church Scottie grew up attending. Note the sand ceremony was half corn for the Iowa farmboy and half sand for the Florida beach girl. I love it.

Joe from SAS Entertainment did a fantastic job keeping the dance floor hopping all night. Amazing up-lighting around the reception room, also provided by SAS. Check it out in the background of some of the photos. Love!

Here’s some of my fave dance shots of the night:

Colin & McKenna <3

HOLA!

Some of you may remember these two little sweethearts from Fall 2010. One of my most asked-about/commented-on photos from 2010 was “that little guy standing next to the tractor.” I still get asked about that photo, so I’ve decided that Colin is definitely the next Stetson model. Love his so-serious looks! Here it is:
