I met Nicole and Randy through one of my colleagues, Tim Hara [he does great work too!] and met another Illinois State University alum! The teacher and graphic designer tied the knot at Streator's AMAZING The Silver Fox venue. It was a hot, HOT summer day and thankfully The Silver Fox is such an amazing space that we could do all the photos indoors and not melt outside.
Congrats Nicole and Randy! Thanks for being so awesome and having me capture this best day ever.
What was your favorite part of the wedding day?
Randy: Relaxing during the reception!
Nicole: Turning and seeing everyone we loved surrounding us during our ceremony. :)
Your wedding detailing was awesome! What inspired the Gatsby-esque look?
Our venue! The venue was already so beautiful and unique, and we didn't want to take away from that.
Would you have done anything differently?
Maybe brought an extra fan. ;)
What advice do you have for newly engaged couples about choosing a photographer?
Find someone who fits the "look" of your wedding. We loved your indoor shots, and really felt that you could capture the beauty of our venue. Also finding someone who you can really trust, and is willing to take the time to get to know you as a couple.
Wedding photography isn't just about having a camera and being in the front to capture the events. It's a visual narrative of something emotional, happy, and beautiful. The big moments. And the little mini-moments in between. When you see your images, you see a visual storyboard from beginning to end. Where images can standalone, but are powerful as part of a bigger story. You'll remember the biggest moments of the day. I can help you relive all the details.
