i heard someone say once, "to move forward we must look back at where we have been".  ok i probably never actually heard anyone say it but im sure pinterest definitely threw it out there once.  i have never done a "year in review" post because i have never really been content with my work.  i always felt like i could do better or i have fallen short in comparison to other photographers i admire.  this past year was huge for me.  lots of "aha" moments, amazing clients, and awesome opportunities.  i always feel like i could do more and be better, but this time around im taking time to be proud of myself.  proud of how far ive come, the work i have created, and the relationships i have cultivated.

comparison is the theif of joy.

dont let it steal your joy.

take time to look back and see how far you have come

 sarah + rick | elburn, illinois

this Heritage Prairie Farm Rustic Vintage Wedding was a special one for me.  I was sarahs studio assistant when I was living in chicago and she is an amazingly talented family photographer so the pressure was on!  one of my favorite things about sarah is she is so thoughtful.  when it came time for my birthday or christmas I always knew I was in for a treat.  not only are her gifts so incredibly meaningful, her gift wrapping is impeccable as well, and let me tell you, I am a sucker for good packaging! so I basically knew for a fact her wedding details were going to be nothing short of amazing and that they were!

sarah and rick dated for a longgg time before rick popped the question. we always joke that it took him long enough, but nothing could be more perfect on their wedding day.  from the personalized rustic invitations to the vintage china table settings, there was nothing missing from this intimate barn wedding.  

I am always so grateful clients that turn into friends, but there is something special about friends who turn into clients.

ps please all take a second and swoon over the back of sarahs dress.  I mean come onnn!!
