Becky and Rob had a beautiful bellini and gray wedding at Eagle Ridge Resort in May! The cherry trees were perfectly blooming with vibrant pinks around the resort and the other trees were budding with hints of leaves which created some stunning spring backdrops to this amazing wedding day!
Becky started her day with her ladies at the main lodge at Eagle Ridge. The Eagle Ridge spa did the makeup for all of them, but everyone in the bridal party helped each other with their hair which created a fun day from the start! The laughter and giggles as hair was curled and pinned was a welcome start to the day!
Meanwhile, Rob and his guys got ready in a nearby resort room. Rob even got their pup (Kirby) gussied up for the day! Isn’t Kirby so handsome?!?! The guys did a few photos before the ceremony began. This group was definitely NOT boring!!!! Becky’s mom and her Maid of Honor helped her get in her dress and veil while Rob and his guys were taking photos. Becky was absolutely breathtaking in this dress and veil! I mean seriously!!!! This little girl was so darn cute all day long! We got lots of photos of her!!!Don’t these ladies look great together? Their dresses were the perfect shade to really pop in photos! And their bouquets were GORGEOUS!!!!!!!
The wedding ceremony took place just inside of the tent which created a feeling of belonging and welcome to each of the guests. It was an intimate and sweet ceremony led by one of our favorite Galena area officiants! I adored the way that Rob grinned at Becky as she came down the aisle and stood in front of him. She truly took his breath away! After the ceremony, it was time for some photos of Becky and Rob together with their family, wedding party, and each other! We just had to make sure Kirby got some photos with his mom and dad before he went for his walk 😉 This group was so much fun! I loved the colors Becky chose for them since it was perfectly springy. Their florals were absolutely stunning. And they were so funny to hang around all day!
These blossoming trees were my favorite!!!!! That pop of pink behind them makes my heart so happy!
And the tulips!!!! Around here, tulips are only pretty for a short while. It just happened that they were perfectly blooming for Becky and Rob’s wedding day! During the time we were taking wedding party and bride and groom photos, the staff at Eagle Ridge was changing over the tent to reception decor! Isn’t this decor so pretty?
Becky and Rob opened the dance floor with their first dance, then Becky followed with a dance with her dad. After that, the party was going!!!! Becky and Rob, thank you for choosing us to capture the images of your wedding day! It has been so fun to get to know you both. We can’t wait to see what the future holds for you!!!

Today is a day of a pretty BIG announcement from the UnPosed world. As you’re about to see, we are starting to officially offer photography for your growing family including maternity and newborn photos!!! This has been a really exciting change for us this year and within just a month or so of spreading the word quietly we’ve already had maternity and newborn sessions with a couple of amazing families that we are so excited to work with throughout the year as their babies grow!!! There aren’t enough exclamation marks in the world to express our joy at being able to offer this next step in photos for the couples that we have come to love through their wedding process. Now we get to watch as their families grow and it is just the most joyous thing for us to be part of!
Today, you all get to meet Iverson! Iverson came into the world in mid-April and is just the cutest little man ever! His newborn session was a ton of fun as it included his puppy-sister, John Deere tractors, and snuggles with his mommy and daddy. We did this session in his home the day after he came home from the hospital so he was all snuggly and cozy still from being just a few days old at that time.
It was so cute when he opened his eyes a little for us! You could tell right away he was inspecting this new world that was all around him. Isn’t he so adorable?!?! His mommy and daddy had this stuffed version of his puppy-sister for him so of course we had to have him snuggle up with it. What was even better was when Lulu herself came to snuggle with her new baby brother!!!!
When you’re a little boy who will grow up loving the farm life, you wear John Deere hats 🙂 We couldn’t forget mommy and daddy in a couple of pictures! They were already so smitten with him and you could tell he knew exactly who they were. It is so fun to see our couples that we photographed their wedding for now becoming new parents!!!
Destiney and Joe chose to have us photograph Iverson throughout his first year of life so keep an eye out here as we’ll be sharing lots more of this little man throughout the year!
And if you know of anyone looking for maternity, newborn, or kiddo photos tell them to reach out to us!
