Darcy + John: Pontiac, Illinois

It’s a great day to be a Martin!!

I have never been to a wedding with such family comradery! I am so in love with the energy of these two families! It is very rare that I photograph a wedding where it rains the entire day. Sure enough, this wedding day was filled with a cold, nasty, windy rain that did not let up once. However, getting back to this awesome family, they couldn’t care less about the weather. Every single person was joyful. I’ve never seen such a fun, energetic and very proud group!

Despite the weather, we were able to get some great shots full of emotion and enjoyment. The location of the reception was packed with art and modern decor allowing me to use the surroundings for some dramatic portraits. Lastly, the party people made it a breeze for me to capture some intensely entertaining dancing shots near the end.

Thank You John, Darcy, Hoving and Martin families for being thrilling pleasure and making my job easy!!
