Springtime calls for blooming flowers and blooming romance! We got to meet with our new couple this weekend, Jacqueline and Michael.


Our first time meeting them was not only great, but it was also more than we expected. They were both ready to show us how in love and happy they are and portrayed it in these photos flawlessly.


We met Jacqueline and Michael at our favorite spot, Bird Haven in Joliet. Not only was the weather great but the rain that was forecasted disappeared and we were left to work at our own pace.


We love shooting at Bird Haven as it gives us that rustic natural feel and both Jacqueline and Michael matched with their cowboy boots which tied the theme together.


Jacqueline looked phenomenal and her smile was contagious that even Michael couldn’t stop smiling. We couldn’t help but notice just how obvious it was that they were both the epitome of a “perfect match.”


The endless smiles from our couple made for some amazing photos. They were both such fantastic people to work with just know their wedding day will be absolutely amazing. We are so excited they have chosen us to be the ones who will be capturing their I Do’s, we wish nothing but pure joy and love to our newly engaged couple!

Lifestyle Newborn Session │Minooka, IL

One of the perks of being a family photographer is that we get to see all the families that we photograph grow over the years. We photographed Marlana's maternity session a few months ago and now finally get to meet little Abraham in person.

This newborn lifestyle session was quite an adventure. This little guy did not want to sleep, and it's hard to get a newborn to just do what you want them to. But at the end of the photoshoot, he decided to take a nap allowing me to get a few pictures of him sleeping. Isn't he so cute?

We'd also like to thank Copper for being such a good protector of her tiny human. 🐕

Copper was so excited, she had to be in the family picture. She was all smiles during the session. I love furry babies

Joliet Wedding Photographer and Videographer

Let's talk about sweets! Yes, sweets! It's wedding season and I have some delicious photos to help make your wedding desserts a delight for guests' eyes.


Many brides struggle with the dessert selection for their big day! I don't blame them. There are a lot of decisions to be made such as, what should the desserts look like? Are they going to be served on a buffet? Should there be a signature dessert? You might also be wondering, what kind of sweets do I want?

First and foremost, there are two things that you should consider before selecting your wedding sweets;


1. Choose Something You Like


You may not be able to taste all the desserts on offer at catered venues, but if you can choose from an array of options, go with something you like! After all, it's your day. Pay attention to seasonal fruits and flavors and have fun with it!


2. Beware of Food Allergies


If you're providing food at your wedding, you'll want to make sure there are options for those with food allergies or dietary restrictions. This doesn't mean you have to make 10 different kinds of cake — just have one or two that are allergy-friendly so people can enjoy them too. If there's room in your budget, gluten-free cupcakes or vegan brownies.

Doughnuts are a delicious and trendy choice that works well as a late-night snack or a wedding favor.


Similarly, whoopie pies can be easily customized with different flavors and toppings to fit your unique style.


They're also easy to pack in boxes or bags for guests to enjoy on their way out of the reception.

People love s'mores, and they're a fun way to end an outdoor wedding reception although they're also popular at indoor receptions as well because they make people feel nostalgic. You can make them yourself or hire someone to do it for you


Everyone loves cupcakes, so why not make them mini? Mini cupcakes offer an easy snack for guests that is fun and easy. Plus, there are so many flavors you can choose from for guests with different tastes.

When it comes to wedding desserts, the sky really is the limit. Gone are the days of plain cake with a few flowers on top. Couples who want to wow their guests with sweet treats can choose from an array of decadent options. Our latest obsession? A churro bar!

Pudding might not sound like the most exciting dessert, but there's something about this creamy (and sometimes custardy) dessert that's just perfect for weddings. If you're planning a low-key country wedding, it might still be appropriate to go with a classic wedding cake. But if you're planning a more contemporary affair, you might want to go with something lighter and simpler like puddings.

Chocolate-covered strawberries are a classic wedding dessert that is simple to make and looks stunning on display. You can also incorporate them into your other desserts by adding chocolate-dipped strawberries as a garnish for your cake or cupcakes.


Chocolate-covered Oreos are an easy and fun alternative to cake pops! You can make them with white chocolate or dark chocolate depending on your preference.


Chocolate-covered pretzels add a salty crunch to the table. They're easy to dip in white or dark chocolate and you can customize them by adding sprinkles, nuts, or crushed candy bars over the top of the melted chocolate.
