I'm a coffee loving, travel-obsessed, twenty-something based out of Central Illinois. I'm lucky enough to make a living doing what I love - photographing people! I specialize in weddings (destination + local), senior portraits, + boudoir.
Both Kristofer + Tiera and I go back, but for different reasons! I knew Kristofer in high school, and Tiera was the maid of honor in Dayna + Shawn‘s June 2018 wedding! Their day was so much fun on a beautiful fall day!
These two are perfect for each other. I’ve said it before, and i’ll say it again: these two people light up brighter than the sun when they are around one another! Kristofer treats Tiera like a dang queen and she smiles from ear to ear while around him.
Their day took place at a private farm outside of Chatsworth, IL and I immediately began begging Heather (the owner) to open up a new venue – it’s THAT pretty. With a tent set up right outside the barn, it was an all-in-one venue with cozy farm details everywhere! Tiera asked me for one specific photo from the day; to take a photo in the barn after nightfall with the lights on. It was beautiful, and I love those photos!
“We were deciding on whether or not we wanted to make the jump from Peoria, IL to Wausau, WI. It was a long and stressful process, and Kristofer had been traveling back and forth for about a year before I finally took off work to come up with him. He received an official job offer while we were both up there, making our decision final that we were going to move 5 hours away from friends, family, and everything we were familiar with. Knowing that we were about to begin a whole new chapter in our life together, Kristofer took me to a quiet little lake in the woods during sunset that he had scoped out during a previous visit. This is where he dropped on to one knee and asked me to spend the rest of my life with him!
It was about time, I had been not so patiently waiting for him to propose for an entire summer-come to find out he had the ring for 8 whole months waiting for the right time to ask!”
Tiera + Kristofer, thank you so much for allowing Brandon + I to spend this day with you. It meant everything to have a day to enjoy, escape, and have a blast with you all when we needed it most. I have been so excited to share more photos with you! I wish you all the best! #manihartyou
