Rachael & Jim | St Charles Country Club | St Charles, IL Wedding Photographer

One of the best things as a photographer is to be trusted by your clients.  That should go without saying, but not always do I say "let's do this" and I am met with a "that is a great idea, let's do it" - especially when it may involve a little dirt and a wedding dress ;)  I am the first person to worry about keeping my brides clean, and completely understand why one would not want to go venturing through dirt and weeds on their wedding day (or maybe any day).  However, if I have found beautiful light in a magical spot (aka high on a hill through thorny grass and muddy patches), then my old catchphrase "this will be worth it" comes out of my mouth followed by a slight cringe waiting the reply -- if its "I'd rather not", I am totally cool with that and can work around it but when its "Sure let's do it!" I get SUPER excited because I know that I am about to take some sweet pics.   Rachael, if you didn't figure that out yet, was one of those gals who knew when to trust me.  I loved photographing her, Jim and all of their friends too!  Their day was very beautiful and fun and I know they will have many great adventures together in the future <3 0001rj 0002rj 0003rj 0004rj 0005rj 0006rj 0007rj 0008rj 0009rj 0010rj 0011rj 0012rj 0013rj 0014rj 0015rj 0016rj 0017rj 0018rj 0019rj 0020rj 0021rj 0022rj 0023rj 0024rj 0025rj 0026rj 0027rj 0028rj 0029rj 0030rj 0031rj 0032rj 0033rj 0034rj 0035rj 0036rj 0037rj 0038rj 0039rj 0040rj 0041rj 0042rj 0043rj 0044rj 0045rj 0046rj 0047rj 0048rj 0049rj 0050rj 0051rj 0052rj 0053rj 0054rj 0055rj 0056rj 0057rj 0058rj 0059rj 0060rj 0061rj 0062rj 0063rj 0064rj 0065rj 0066rj 0067rj 0068rj 0069rj 0070rj 0071rj 0072rj 0073rj 0074rj 0075rj 0076rj 0077rj 0078rj 0079rj 0080rj 0081rj 0082rj 0083rj 0084rj 0085rj 0086rj 0087rj 0088rj 0089rj 0090rj 0091rj 0092rj 0093rj 0094rj 0095rj 0096rj 0097rj 0098rj 0099rj 0100rj
