Preview Photos from Eling + Nathan’s Wedding!

A Golf Course Wedding in St Charles, Illinois

It was a wild ride of a day for Eling + Nathan’s wedding day! It was raining in the afternoon…but the skies opened up for a gorgeous outdoor wedding on a St Charles golf course! I’m so happy for my old college friends! I knew them both back then…but they didn’t know each other! And now they are married! I’m always thankful that my job as a wedding photographer allows me to reconnect with friends as I photograph their weddings!

One of my favorite wedding photos of day!

Golf courses can make for a pretty backdrop!

St Charles is such a cute Chicago suburb! They have this really cool bridge that we took photos on during the rain! It’s important that your wedding photographer has the best gear…so they can take photos in the rain! Yes…I was getting wet while taking this picture! =)

A Quick Stop for Family Photos!

Family Portraits in Naperville!

I’ve photographed this family all over the world…in Thailand and in my studio! This time we headed out to Naperville for their family session! The trees were in bloom and these gorgeous pink flowers were everywhere! As a photographer…I love bold colors! The flowers made for the perfect backdrop!
