Nicci & Corey | Rockford Wedding Phohotgrapher

One of the things I really love about photographing weddings is there's always so much more to it than just taking photos. Sometimes I'm a little bit of a wedding coordinator, sometimes an emcee, sometimes a stage director, nerve steadier...tie-tier...cake cutting trainer....this list goes on. But when I arrived at Corey & Nicci's wedding to find the girls all huddled in a small room hiding from a nesting bat, I unexpectedly got to add "Bat Removal Specialist" to my resume. And since the bridesmaids referred to me and my second photographer as "Batman and Robin" for the rest of the day, I'm going to add "Superhero" as well. Ha!

From that moment on I knew this was going to be a fun group.'s a few photos from Nicci and Corey's ceremony at United Methodist Church in Roscoe, reception at Mauh-nah-tee-see Country Club in Rockford, and I quick stop in downtown Rockford.

And of course...

Pavilion at Orchard Ridge Farms Wedding | Lindsey & Cameron |

Outdoor weddings are always great, but with our ever-changing Rockford / Northern Illinois weather you just never know what the temperature is going to be like mid-summer...could be 110, could be 60. That said, we could not have asked for a a more gorgeous day for Lindsey & Cameron's wedding at The Pavilion at Orchard Ridge Farms. It was 75 degrees and free of the hazy humid air that sometime surrounds us here. (Just like I planned it, ha)

Add in an amazing venue and people that were wonderfully fun to work with and you have the recipe for a great day. Here's a few photos from the day.

Congrats Lindsey & Cameron!
