St Charles wedding photographer

Macy & Bobbie Engaged/Belleville Illinois/Jheart Photography

When Macy & Bobbie called me and told me about their plans for an intimate backyard farm wedding, I melted. I am a huge sucker for the small romantic weddings, especially if it’s on gorgeous family farm property where you know it’s safe to have a big party!

These two beauties met while working together, which now days seem extraordinary because seems like everyone is meeting online. The Saturday we worked together was that crazy, 60 degree weekend here in the midwest, confirming how bi-polar midwest weather is! Since it was SO beautiful, we took it to the streets and started off in their town of Belleville. Macy & Bobbie wanted to shoot downtown in the heart of the city for some beautiful urban looks. Downtown Belleville reminded me so much of Historic St. Charles with cobblestone streets, old adorable houses that look so cozy, and a really cute businesses along the main strip. Bar Seven is where we ended, was such a fun dive bar with a super cute alley way, that we obviously took advantage of.

Macy & Bobbie were such a joy to work with and to get to capture their love in my lens. I am stoked to be at their wedding in September. I already feel like one of the family and it makes me even more excited to meet the whole family!

Holly & Paul say I Do/St.Charles Wedding Photographer/Brookdale Farms Eureka

I was so excited for Holly & Paul's big day. Not only because I simply love my job, but because one request Holly had at random, was to not have flowers, but to have puppies instead! So, being the photographer that I am....I set out on a hunt for puppies. 48 hours later I was set up with 6 adorable bull/pit puppies that stole everyone hearts. These two also picked a GORGEOUS venue in Eureka called Brookdale Farms. The rustic charm, beautiful open hillsides, and old barn were a photographer's dream. Watching these two come together after 8 years surrounding by their kids, family, and friends was really a treat. 

I have also come to the conclusion that everyone should have puppies at their wedding. <3
