A New Year, A New Life

January is a time to celebrate new beginnings. I was honored to share in R. and C.’s wedding!

These sweet friends started their lives together surrounded by friends and family, and I loved the feeling of happiness that was all around.

One of my favorite parts was when R. and C. said a prayer together, right before the ceremony. What better way to start a new life? ❤

It was chilly outside, but we braved the cold for a few shots in the park!

Congratulations again, R. and C.! Best wishes for your new life together! ❤

Engagement Session: R. and C.

I just love this couple!  I first met R. and C. through a college ministry that we are all a part of.  I was so excited when they asked if I would be their wedding photographer next January!

We had so much fun walking around the riverfront and downtown St. Charles!

Spring leaves were just starting to appear.  I love the feeling of “new beginnings” in springtime.

It was supposed to rain all afternoon, but the rain cooperated and held off until the very last picture!
