Jamie + Logan | Woodsy Belleville Engagement Session

Oh man. I love engagement sessions so much. We have 4 more coming up in the next couple of weeks, and they are seriously some of my favorite kinds of sessions to shoot. I had so much fun with Jamie + Logan, and I am thrilled that we are also shooting their wedding at Silver Oaks next year! They are just the sweetest couple - friendly, warm, funny, and a real treat to have in front of the camera.

Ashley + Jimmy | Boo Cat Club Wedding

Last month we had the pleasure of working with the incredibly sweet Ashley + Jimmy. We loved so much about their wedding day! The Boo Cat Club is such a lovely venue, and Ashley + Jimmy chose to keep things really simple by just walking around and taking photos around the venue. This is one of our favorite ways to take wedding party photos and couple’s portraits on a wedding day.

Nam + Lyly | SLU Campus Engagement Session

had so much fun hanging out with Nam + Lyly recently for their engagement session! I love when couples choose locations that are special to them - for Nam + Lyly it’s SLU’s campus, where their relationship began. I am super unfamiliar to this campus, but was pleasantly surprised at how beautiful it is! We ended the session on a rooftop in the Central West End just as the sun was setting.

Lauren + Jeff | Eclectic Chicago Wedding

If I start talking about Lauren + Jeff, it’ll be hard for me to stop - there’s a good chance I could up writing a book on these two and their wedding day. So I will attempt to keep this short so you can get to the goods ;)

Lauren + Jeff are truly an amazing couple. I instantly connected with them the moment I met them last fall, and I knew that Forbis would love them too (he did). What makes them so special is that they are both just incredibly welcoming people. They have this ease and humor about them that makes you feel like you’ve known them forever.

Kristi + Paul | Full Wedding Story

Hello all! I wanted to share something I’ve been working on lately. Forbis and I don’t keep it a secret that we shoot a ton of images at any given wedding. We are serial overshooters and as much as we TRY to reel it in, we just kind of can’t. Like pretty much every other photographer these days, we don’t deliver all of the images we shoot.

Caity + Bennett | Julian, CA Wedding

Caity and Bennett found our work last year due to the wonderful and mysterious ways of the Internet. They contacted us for an engagement session only, which isn't totally rare, and we met and photographed them in the fall of 2017. Honestly, within minutes of meeting, I was pretty much obsessed with these two. They are hilarious, highly intelligent, adventurous, and just have very KIND souls…

Annalise + Rob | Chittenden, Vermont Mountain Wedding

When Annalise + Rob reached out to us to document their wedding in Vermont, we were absolutely ecstatic. For one, Rob and Annalise are an incredibly fun, hilarious, and sweet couple. And two, neither Forbis nor myself had ever been to that part of the country before and we love traveling to new places. It was a short 3 day trip for us - we flew into Boston and immediately made the 3 hour drive to the mountains of Vermont. We were blown away with how beautiful it is up there!

Tim + Eric | ANEW Rooftop Wedding

Working with Tim and Eric proved that it's totally possible to keep things simple and still have a truly amazing wedding. We loved the entire vibe of this day. ANEW is a gorgeous, modern, and understated venue that fit Tim and Eric's aesthetic perfectly. They chose to vamp up the space with candles and lots of greenery…

Kirsten Paige Bridal | Styled Shoot

Styled shoots can tend to get a bad rap from a lot of photographers. The argument is that they represent an unrealistic version of perfection. And I mean....I get it. Take a look at literally anything wedding-related on Pinterest or any given wedding blog and all you see are perfect images. This can contribute to setting up couples for unrealistic expectations of what their wedding day should look or be like. When really, there is actually no right or wrong way to throw a wedding, and it shouldn't have to fit into any kind of mold…

Springfield Aquarium | Winter 2018

Recently some friends of ours visited the aquarium in Springfield, MO and raved about how awesome it was. Since our 5-year-old is an avid lover of all things sea life related, we decided we had to check it out for ourselves! We had a free weekend, and the weather was supposed to be super awesome, so we booked a one night stay at an Airbnb and made the 3 hour drive on Saturday morning…

Ben + Ranana | St. Charles Winter Engagement Session

Everyone hates winter, amiright? Especially after the holidays when there's nothing really to "look forward to" and everyone is just over the cold. Well, everyone except for me. I used to be an avid hater of winter myself, but honestly I now love it. Okay.....so was it insanely cold/windy/uncomfortable when we shot these images? Yes. BUT, there are a couple of upsides that make winter sessions so worth it!…
