Wedding and Portrait Photography in Geneva, Illinois. 

Lindsey & Dominic | The Haight | Elgin, IL Wedding Photographer

The first weekend of October for me had a theme - rising to challenges.  I had some personal challenges happening in my life at the time, and the weekend of 3 weddings I shot echoed the fact that in spite of any challenges that come into your life, you can overcome them with love.  All of my couples had hard times in their lives, as all people do, but there overwhelmingly amazing attitudes and support systems made these celebrations of not just love, but of life.  Lindsey and Dominic wanted just a few posed photos, and mostly wanted me to focus on them having fun and enjoying their day with all of their friends and family.  Being in the moment. They are a beautiful couple that made a rainy day into an unforgettably fun one.

"Why am I smiling

And why do I sing?

Why does [October]

Seem sunny as spring?

Why do I get up

Each morning and start?

Happy and head up

With joy in my heart

Why is each new task

A trifle to do?

Because I am living

A life full of you."
