“Give what you have. To someone, it may be better than you dare to think.” – Henry Wadsworth Longfellow. We had hoped that our first wedding of 2019 in Austin, TX would provide us with a warm  start to the year, but the cold weather followed us all the way from Illinois and made for […]

December was so beautiful and mild. The first week of January seemed so promising. And then January 12 came, and with it almost 12 inches of snow!!! Ross and I read all of the warnings about not traveling, the bad roads, etc. But we had made a commitment to other vendors and models. After double […]

When a bride and groom change their wedding date for us, we are always so humbled. And that is how it all started with Michael and Danielle. And it continued going uphill from there! Further love for this couple continued in a fire station on a cold day in downtown Chicago where we met for […]

Johnny and Suzanne are originally from Illinois, live in Waco, TX.  We emailed back and forth about their wedding photography and they became an official AMP couple!  Little did any of us know the adventures we would be in for together!! 🙂 We met in person the very first time at Starved Rock State Park […]

This is as close as I will get to my dream wedding. And that’s totally okay, because I would much rather capture it than be in it!! 🙂  (I lie… I’d love to be behind the camera as well as in front of it if I had all of these vendors involved!!) After over 160 […]

Arriving at Rod and Hannah’s wedding truly felt like reuniting with old friends. We had already had an amazing time with these two not only preparing for the wedding day, but trying new restaurants together, sharing stories and a lot of laughs along the way. White Oak Vineyards in Carlock, Illinois provided the perfect setting […]

One of the very first questions we ask our couples is ‘will you do a first look?’  If they are uncertain, we can easily change their minds, and here’s why. First looks come with SOOOOOO MANY benefits!!!  The biggest one by far is that the wedding day is just a blur, why not have some […]

Puppy love…there’s a double meaning in that. Not only do these two have a genuine, joyful, and natural connection, James and Kayla actually have another couple to thank for their relationship, their dogs Benny and Nora. It was Benny and Nora who found each other first at the dog park, but James and Kayla were […]

An Illinois girl meets an Iowa boy. I first met Shanley four years ago when she was in her sister’s wedding. When we were told she would be contacting us, we were thrilled! We already knew she would be fun to be around! And our first day together was…. let’s just say I really wish […]

I will forever be thankful that Matt + Natalie were as excited about us after we first met as we were about them! (crazy side note – Natalie grew up next to my sister and brother in law, so her parents and my sister and brother in law knew each other really well!) They were […]
