Current Featured Sessions | Galena, IL Wedding Photography

Happy October!!!!  I don’t know about you, but it seems hard to believe that it’s October already.  This is my absolute favorite time of year!  Full of sweaters, apple cider, falling leaves and sitting by the fire.  I may not be a fan of winter, but give me a gorgeous slightly chilly fall day and I am a happy happy girl!!!

September was a fun month for us for so many reasons, but today we’re going to highlight just one of the awesome things that happened.  We had three publications that had our work featured in them!!!  THREE!!!!  It’s a huge honor when someone chooses to feature your work on their blog or in their magazine.

The first place we were featured was in Northwest Quarterly’s annual Wedding Guide.  Though there isn’t a direct link to the story, if you scroll down a ways you’ll see this photo at the top of the article highlighting Ginny & Sof’s wedding day at the Goldmoor Inn.

We love the whole article as it is really well written and were flattered that Ginny & Sof indicated to Northwest Quarterly that we were an integral part of their day.  Our favorite quotes from Ginny & Sof are “They really kept us on schedule.  We got to have a lot of fun while they took the photos.  The whole day was like Christmas times 100.  It was fun all the way through.” and “We still keep in touch with our photographers and officiant to this day.”  It’s so important to us that we help our couples have a fun yet relaxed day and that we create a wonderful relationship with them.  Seeing an article like this just makes us feel like we succeeded in that for at least one couple.

The second place we were featured was a big one for us!  Melissa Hearts Weddings is a wedding blog that features beautiful weddings and engagements.  Something about the website design with the black and white stripes and watercolor flowers just makes my heart happy every time I read her articles!  We have submitted to them before, but weren’t quite the right fit for what they were looking for.  We were so excited the day we got the email that they had accepted Amy & Bob’s beautiful engagement for a feature!!!!    You can check out the full feature here:

And last but not least, we just told a bit of the story earlier this week on the blog, but if you missed that we were contacted in August to take some photos of a local artist for an upcoming magazine article featuring his work.  The editor had seen our work, found out we were local and contacted us because they couldn’t get a reporter out here to photograph him.  David was a welcoming host when we went to his studio that day and was willing to go along with any ideas we had.  The result was a great article with fun photos that feature him doing what he loves!  The magazine is called InVironments and it’s a fun little publication full of local stories.

I apologize that the photo of the actual magazine is just taken with my iPhone so it’s not really that pretty.

Hope you loved checking these images and stories out!  Thank you to everyone that featured our work!!!  It means so much to us!!!
