Wedding in St Charles! Congrats Eling + Nathan!

Golf Course Wedding Photos in St Charles, IL

My old college buddy Nathan married Eling, another college friend of mine! The crazy thing…they didn’t know each other back then! 10 years later they meet and fall in love! Nathan knew me when I bought my first film DSLR, a Canon AE-1 back in college…who would have thought I would be his wedding photographer! And for those that haven’t seen their engagement session photos in San Francisco – you have to check those out at their San Francisco engagement session blog post!

A quick shout out to three past clients/friends that were at this wedding: Nick & Danica (2009), Dru & Nicole (2009) and Jason & Hannah (2011). It was great seeing you guys again! And now you all have kids!!! =)

Here are a few of my favorite photos from the day! The skies opened up on the golf course for this awesome wedding picture!

I don’t support this type of behavior on a wedding day, but I couldn’t help but have fun at my friend’s wedding…we set him up with one of his best men during the first look! lol…it wasn’t who he expected!

Inclement weather derailed some of our photo locations, but we found refuge in this tower for bridal party photos!
