Glendale Lakes Golf Club Wedding Photos| Chicago, IL | Staci & Scott

Staci and Scott are MARRIED!

Staci and Scott met through a synchronized swimming group at Huntington University in Indiana. Soon after, they fell in love and Scott proposed to her by taking her to her favorite restaurant (Olive Garden!) for dinner and back to the decorated University auditorium to pop the question!

Their wedding day began with Staci getting ready at her beautiful family home. We then traveled to Faith Christian Reformed Church for their ceremony, followed by photos and a gorgeous rustic themed reception at the Glendale Lakes Golf Club. The floral designs by Signature Creations and Prestige Floral Studio were absolutely breathtaking and Sounds Abound Entertainment kept the celebrations going all night! Staci and Scott’s whole day was filled with friends, family, smiles, and so much joy!

I have been so looking forward to sharing this wedding with you all – I’ve known Staci my whole life and it was such an incredible honor to get to know her and Scott better as a couple through their planning process, engagement session and to be a part of their wedding day. The love that Staci and Scott have for each other is obvious and they are just as sweet as can be! Congratulations to the happy couple!

Palos Verdes, CA Engagement Session | Abalone Cove | Wayfarers Chapel | Jesse and Jessica

Working with these two was such a dream!

Jesse and Jessica met during their junior year of college when paths crossed over a slice of cake. After running into each other at numerous gatherings with mutual friends, Jesse decided to help Jessica out at her job in the school cafe by washing all the dishes so that they could hangout before the day was done! How sweet is that?!

I’ve been so anxious to share these photos with you all – it’s one of my favorite sessions to date! Enjoy!

Staci & Scott | Spring Indiana Engagement Session

Hi, Friends!

I am SO excited to share these photos from Staci and Scott’s spring engagement session!

Staci and Scott met in college at Huntington University in Indiana, where she is studying animation and he is studying youth ministry. With the help of some friends, Scott surprised Staci with a dinner date to her favorite restaurant, Olive Garden, followed by a movie night in their college auditorium (or at least that’s what Staci thought)! When they walked into the auditorium, there was a beautiful candle lit path leading up to an archway decorated with twinkling lights and a big hand painted heart. Staci  was so surprised! As their song played in the background, Scott got down on his knee and asked her to marry him. She, of course, said yes!

I had so much fun working with Staci and Scott on their engagement session! We had a blast traveling around Huntington, Indiana to photograph them in some of their favorite spots on the University campus as well as the Sunken Gardens, Dairy Queen and more! Enjoy the photos!
