Why I Moved Back to Illinois

Why I Moved Back to Illinois

About 5 years ago, while I was doing homework for a class at Millikin University, I got a call that I was officially offered a full-time job as a graphic designer starting a few weeks after I graduated in Louisville, KY. I had worked so hard during this semester to really focus on preparing myself to get a job that was in my field and that would get me out of Illinois. I applied to a minimum of 2 jobs a day (I’m not even exaggerating) starting January 1st of my last semester in college. Ideally I wanted to get out West towards Colorado, but I was open to anywhere BUT Illinois.

When I met up with this couple to discuss the details of their wedding, I knew Chrissy and Bryan would make my job so easy. Even though they have been together for years, their love was still exciting as this day began. The thoughtful preparations for the day made everyone feel at ease – as weddings should be.

Project 52 - Week 24 | Curves

Project 52 - Week 24 | Curves

I grew up with two younger brothers and I am blessed to say that we are very close. I blame it on the fact that we grew up in the middle of nowhere, so we had to get along in order to have fun as kids. No complaints here. Actually, they have taught me a lot throughout my life. Being the oldest (and a Taurus), I know that I worked hard to lead the way for my brothers, but could be stubborn to ask for any help.

Jess + Bart | Wedding

Jess + Bart | Wedding

I was contacted by this couple to do a quickly planned wedding, and the reason was heartbreaking: Bart’s mother was only given weeks to live. Jess and Bart had planned for their wedding later in the year, but wanted to move up the date so that his mother could witness it. I felt (and still feel) honored that I could help them out.

Project 52 - Week 9 | Movement

Project 52 - Week 9 | Movement

Each week of this Project 52 weekly photo challenge I am given a choice: to internalize the meaning of the prompt or to go for something literal. The prompt was: Movement. After having a few weeks of struggling on the prompt and waiting until the last second, I told myself to just go out there and shoot some moving things. Perhaps it would inspire me.

Project 52 - Week 7 | From Where I Stand

Project 52 - Week 7 | From Where I Stand

A significant portion of my time each day is spent at my day-job, where I get to design all the time. It’s truly wonderful and I know that most days I take it for granted. It’s so easy to complain about work. To focus on the negatives and how things could be better. And trust me, things can definitely be better.

Sara + Mark | Wedding

I’ve never met a couple quite like Sara and Mark. They’re love story is more adventurous than I have ever heard. Sara and Mark have traveled all over the world together and have experienced life in so many other cultures. Because of this, they saw that it was important to include their eclectic life within their wedding day.

Megan + Seth | Engagement

Megan + Seth | Engagement

One of the best parts of my job is getting to know people better in order to capture them correctly. I met Megan back in 2009 when we both began our Undergraduate studies at Millikin University in the Vocal Performance program. Growing alongside of her, I can only say good, if not excellent, things about her. Her kind and open-hearted spirit welcomes anyone to share in her joy for life. It’s amazing what beauty can set free.

Krista + Joe // Lifestyle Session

Krista + Joe // Lifestyle Session

I met Krista while working in Louisville and I immediately fell in love with all that she is. Her spirit is so gentle, friendly, and energetic. As a fellow photographer and graphic designer, I knew we would click quickly. Then, to hear her talk about Joe was even more amazing. I was introduced to him as Joey Bear, and that is what I called him for a while.

Jenna + Jeff | Wedding

Jenna + Jeff | Wedding

Probably one of the smartest power couples I’ve met, Jenna and Jeff got to experience a beautiful wedding day. Although it did drizzle throughout the morning, that didn’t stop the two from being so giddy to be married. The outdoor wedding would still commence! With that positive attitude, the rain moved aside to bring a beautiful overcast day during the hottest season possible.
