It’s All in the (Simply Elegant) Details | Charleston, IL Wedding Photographer

Last month I had the pleasure of joining my friend and colleague Rob Watson, owner of Still Life Photography in Bloomington, IL, to assist and shoot alongside him as Chad and Shelley tied the knot. I can’t imagine a better way to spend a Saturday than capturing the first moments of a couple’s journey as husband and wife, surrounded by the warmth and love of family and friends. (Sigh…)

In the small amount of time we spent with Chad and Shelley, I noticed there was not an ounce of pretension or fussiness about these two. They were so down to earth and SO in love with one another. I loved how even the smallest details of the day reflected Chad and Shelley’s sense of casual elegance and complete and utter joy in one another.  Here’s a sampling of what I saw through my lens that day.




Congratulations, Chad and Shelley! And thank you, Rob, for the opportunity to work with you…it was truly my pleasure!

    I love the picture of the little girl spinning while the boy (ring bearer?) watches.
