Beautiful sunshine with a little wind and a little warmth were the weather conditions for an early summer Nauvoo Temple wedding. Conditions were perfect for the shots we had envisioned…..including the bride and groom!

Love, warmth, and kindness were in abundance with Liz and Alan. They were so cute together and the love they shared was evident. We had a wonderful time sharing life experiences during the session and answering questions about Nauvoo’s history before parting.

Check out the images we captured to record this special day…..

Senior portrait sessions are such fun for photographers. Why? Teens have great ideas for props and love artistic poses. We were excited to hear Lars wanted to include his motorcycle in the session, which was awesome….but the leather jacket added “cool” to an already great idea.

This high school senior posed with ease, both with the cycle and without (but I think he enjoyed to cycle photos most!). Voted school homecoming king, Lars was comfortable at looking good in front of a camera.

The early fall weather was perfect for the shoot too. A little crisp. A little colorful. Just the right light. Here are the results……

To Lars:

We can see why your classmates selected you to represent them as homecoming king. You are kind, courteous, and friendly…..and plenty more. May your future hold the best life has to offer as you set off for college and mission service.

Wishing you the best,

Tom and Jeanette

It was the perfect spring day for a temple wedding in Nauvoo. Warm with light wind, just enough shade, and a beautiful blue sky with a few fluffy clouds. We ordered this special day just for Heather and Travis!

Beautiful and handsome couple with sparkling smiles and faces exuding pure happiness, this wedding session was pure delight. Heather’s red rose bouquet (and red heels) along with Travis’s red tie added a bright spot to each image we captured…..but nothing more bright than their faces after being sealed for eternity.

Congrats to these two cuties!

Nauvoo summers are filled with family get-togethers, some large groups, some small groups but they all seem to have one thing in common……lots of love and laughter. As you can tell by the sweetness in the first image below, Al and Judie’s family was filled with love.

Laughter? Yep. There were plenty of jokes and some silliness during the session…..and we enjoyed every minute of our time with the crew. Check out the fabulous shots below……

To Al and Judie,

We love it when missionaries we have come to know and love return with their families. Getting to meet your kids and grandkids was a treat. They are as awesome as you two are! Glad you have a place in Nauvoo…..and a place in our hearts too.

Hugs!

This family has an amazing story because of two people with big hearts full of love. If you know Lynda and John, you know what we mean. They are amazing people raising amazing kids….eleven of them.

Their portrait session was super fun…..filled with shenanigans by the boys (check out the girls’ portrait by the well….2nd shot!), silliness by the girls, and laughter by all. We were just privileged to photograph a few hours of their reunion in Nauvoo.
