Nikki & Zach | Prairie Street Brewhouse | Rockford, IL Wedding Photographer

Every time I go to type a post about a wedding lately, I seem to be thinking about this crazy weather we've been having.  Depending on what part of the state you are in, it may have been a beautiful sunny day, or it could have been hot, humid and pouring down rain.  Or it could have been both at the same time... (more on that later)... however, I am more awe inspired by my couples these days.  They are not stressed, unhappy, and sad no matter what happens on their wedding day (even if they say, have strep throat, as Nikki and Zach did!), they knew they were there to celebrate their love and the joining of their lives together as a new family, weather be damned! I love it when I can be creative when imperfection strikes (or my couples trust me enough to stop in the middle of something and say "let's go take photos outside...NOW!" -- it makes me so happy because I know that I can provide my BEST self and they will be happy with their photo memories of their amazing day <3  I want to especially thank Delaney & Ryan for referring me to this amazing couple, and I am so excited for their beautiful future together! <3
