Last year, when Stephanie was searching for a wedding photographer on Style Me Pretty, she came across one of my couples, Jackie + Mark. After doing a little social media research, Steph realized we had a few friends in common from a few different groups of people and knew we had to meet. After meeting with Steph and Tim, I knew I wanted to shoot their wedding. The consult felt like more of a gathering between friends than vendor/clients, and it has remained that way ever since. From shooting their engagement session during the cold winter along Lake Michigan at Olive Park, to all the emails back and forth prior to the wedding day, to the actual wedding day where they begged me to put my camera away and party with them (I’m still so sad I couldn’t stay and hang out!), Steph and Tim were incredible to work with. I had so much fun throughout the entire wedding, jamming to country music and watching them laugh and dance together. Going through the photos during post-processing even made me smile, and reminded me how much fun this couple and their wedding day truly was. Congratulations to Steph + Tim!
