Brandy & Louie are Married! {Sesser & McLeansboro, IL Wedding Photographer}

Okay, I don't know how I'm ever going to get caught up on my blog posts!! I am very very behind on posting, which isn't like me at all! Usually the second I finish up a session or a wedding I blog about it...but things have been extra crazy lately! I stopped blogging mid-December because I needed to finish the work in time for everyone's deadline's worse than I needed to blog, but now I am seriously behind!! We are in the middle of remodeling the studio, which is taking longer than expected, especially now that all my flooring is on back order, so who knows how long that's gonna take! We are also in the process of buying a new home, the closing is later today actually, and we are moving later in the week! So I'm just a little bit busy...just a little....!

I do have one post ready to go, so here we go...Brandy & Louie's beautiful wedding!
They were such a fun couple to photograph, I'm sure a lot of you remember their engagement session that included a mudfight!! Click HERE to see that if you missed it! :)

It was a very pretty day for their wedding, just a little chilly!


Detailing on her dress:












Louie was a very happy and fun groom! :)

The ceremony:






This was right after the kiss...I love their happy smiles!






The wedding party sportin' the shades...


Had to post this because I think it's the only smile I got out of the ringbearer all day!!














This is the bride and groom stretching out their smiles!




Thought this was cute:

Thanks Brandy & Louie for choosing me for your wedding! It's always fun to get to photograph weddings of people that I know, and I think I have known Brandy since she was in 7th grade or so! Congratulations guys!! Your day was just beautiful!

Well, I'm off to chase some kids and pack some boxes! If anyone is trying to get a hold of me, please leave a message or email me and I will do my best to get back with you during this crazy time of moving! Thanks for your patience! :)

Just a note: I know I am very behind on blogging, but I am trying really hard to get all these sessions finished up so people can order for Christmas and Seniors can get what they need in time for their yearbook deadlines...so I will blog all the sessions when I get all them all done...which I am ALMOST there....so hopefully in a few days!!
Thanks for everyone's patience!

The Clements Family {Benton, IL Family Photographer}



We had scheduled an outdoor leafy session in early November, and I was actually on my way to meet up with them when Mom called to tell me they could not do the session because Dad had been in a car accident! Turns out he was fine, thank goodness, but his truck was totaled! So we had to reschedule, and the rescheduled date was cold and dreary, so we settled for an indoor session. I think we all had a good time though, everyone was cute and cooperative!





A B&W close up of each kid...my favorite!












Thanks for a fun session guys, you kids did sooo great! :) Maybe we can get outdoors in the spring!

Katie {Sesser & Christopher, IL Senior Photographer}



We had absolutely beautiful November weather for Katie's session, I was just amazed! The weather then was better than the weather for most of October, which was so rainy! Anyway, the weather combined with Katie made for one beautiful session! :)





This is the last picture with the clock in downtown Sesser and here's why...I bought the building it was in front of! YAY! But the previous owner took his clock with him when he cleaned out his stuff! BOO! Yes, for those of you who don't know, I will have a studio starting next year!!!












Thanks Katie for a fabulous session! Hope you enjoy your pictures! :)
