Wow… This family! They are just about as great as it gets!

Where do I begin?! Last year (summer of 2015), I met Tiffany and Steven and became their wedding and engagement photographer. I was also lucky enough to meet both of their moms before they booked wedding photography, and started to love this family from the beginning!

As Tiffany and Steven’s wedding day approached, I had the honor to get to know these two and become friends with them throughout the time of their engagement session, phone calls, designing save the date + bridal shower + wedding invitations, and everything in between. They are as sweet as can be, and I love every minute of my time with them!

When their wedding day was finally here, I was able to meet their other special family members (Steven’s brother, sister-in-law, and their son). It was easily evident that this family lives on the love of one another and they truly bring joy to those around them!

After Tiffany and Steven’s wedding, I have to say, I was sad that I didn’t have anything on my calendar to get to see them again sometime soon, but that quickly changed! Kayt, Steven’s sister-in-law that I met at the wedding, reached out hoping to plan a fall family session for her mother-in-law’s birthday… UM YES!

On the day of the session at the farm and surrounding areas in Griggsville, IL, it was an amazingly beautiful, warm October day. When I arrived, Steven announced that the “#1 Photographer” was in the house – LOL. The fall colors were in full swing at this time, too, and this amazing family did not disappoint with their outfits. You guys, these colors and tones are some of my favorites from this entire season!

The Risleys – Thank you for inviting me back to the farm to photograph all of you together. Knowing and photographing all of you brings me great joy! XO
