Lauren and Mike held their beautiful outdoor ceremony here, and it was absolutely stunning. We were delighted to have the pleasure of being their photographers. We photographed in a plethora of places at the Arboretum on an absolutely perfect fall day. The Arboretum at the University of Illinois is one of the most picturesque locations you could choose for an outdoor wedding ceremony. There are gardens of absolutely beautiful flowers and a stately path of trees that offer many opportunities for outdoor photography.

Recently, we were chosen to photograph Elizabeth and Todd's wedding at this gorgeous church. Only a couple blocks from the University of Illinois Quad, this older stately church has a warm and inviting interior that is perfect for a beautiful wedding ceremony. Then afterwards, you can easily walk to the Quad for some outdoor photographs.

Rebekah and Joe chose us to photograph their beautiful wedding at the fabulous Allerton Park. Located at Monticello, Illinois, Allerton Park is one of the most incredible locations to have an outdoor ceremony. There are so many numerous, numerous places in Allerton from the nine gardens to the mansion and lake to photograph a bride and groom. We made great use of the time we were given, and captured many images that they will treasure for the rest of their life. Allerton is designated on the National Register of Historic Places, the National Natural Landmark, and American Institute of Architects' list of 150 Great Places in Illinois, and was named one of the 7 Wonders of Illinois by the Illinois Bureau of Tourism.

Recently, we photographed Susan and Owen's beautiful wedding here.
This is a beautiful Champaign church with many photogenic spots, plus it is very close to the U of I Quad for even more outdoor photography.

It was a pleasure photographing Andrea and Josh's June wedding reception here! The Urbana Country Club is a beautiful venue with great service and very delicious food, but as a photographer, the beautiful outdoor settings surrounding the club were pristine and just perfect for stunning photography, especially in early June. Great choice Andrea and Josh!

We thoroughly enjoyed being the photographers for Elizabeth and Todd's wedding here. They got ready in the convenient hotel rooms, then stepped outside for some photography before heading to the church. After their ceremony we returned to the U of I Quad for a plethora of outdoor photographs of the wedding party, then stepped inside for their reception. How convenient! Great planning, Elizabeth and Todd! On the University of Illinois Quad, the Illini Union has everything for a beautiful reception. The facility itself is beautiful, plus it is most convenient to step outside for photography.

Susan and Owen had a perfect fall day for their wedding, and we were blessed to be chosen as their photographer. Susan is an experienced wedding planner by profession, and it is no wonder she selected the Illinois Terminal as her reception venue. The Illinois Terminal is beautiful for a wedding reception with all the daylight from the windows surrounding the top floor. Especially striking is a twilight reception with is a beautiful sunset! We timed a photograph of Susan and Owen toasting by one of the huge windows and included the beautiful fall sunset in the background before they danced the night away.

Lauren and Mike chose the Refinery for their beautiful wedding reception, and we were thrilled to be their photographers! The Refinery is a beautiful venue for a wedding reception. The room is beautiful and spacious with plenty of room for a dance floor, which is a boon for capturing great dancing pictures. It was lovely, and all the guests had a great time. The service and food were were first rate, and the staff was friendly.
Once we saw Barry Manilow dining at the Round Barn Restaurant! Since they added their Banquet Center, we have photographed wedding receptions there.
