Emma & Andrew | Pear Tree Estates Wedding | Champaign Illinois

Emma and Andrew’s Champaign wedding photography at Pear Tree Estates still makes me smile weeks later. Pear Tree Estates was a beautiful venue for a wonderful couple. The warm sunshine from the day made the bridesmaid’s lavender gowns pop even more brightly against the deep green trees and plants. All the details, from the bride’s shoes, to the bouquets, and flasks hidden in pockets, made their day special. Sneaking away after the ceremony, we were able to take portraits of the happy bride and groom on the brick streets before bridal party photos, but we were even luckier to get some alone time during sunset. The day was truly magical, and I wish Emma and Andrew a lifetime of happiness.

 I’m all about preserving those moments that tell your story.

Whether it’s four feet ankle-deep in mud, tenderly clasped hands, a happy tear cascading over a cheek, a hair-back laugh or a sun-drenched kiss,

The ones that move you. Bind you. Bring you together and keep you together long after the memory fades.
