Hello! My name is Cindy and welcome to my blog where you can view our most recent work. I have been a professional photographer for 16 years. Our primary focus is weddings and high school seniors, But we also photograph family portraits too! We are Central Illinois' leading photographers for professional headshots for small businesses, large corporations, and businesses in need of personal branding, and content for their social media and websites. My team are experts at what we do and very good at making anyone and everyone comfortable in front of the camera and bringing out your very best.
This past week, I was blessed to travel to Carmel, CA to attend the Walk Through A Wedding Workshop with Justin & Mary Marantz. If you are a wedding photographer, you know who they are, but if you aren’t.. they are one of the best husband/wife photographers in the wedding industry.
Every year, I invest in my business by carefully choosing workshops that will inspire my creativity and passion for photography and help me reset as a small business owner. I chose this specific workshop because Justin and Mary are not only one the most talented (and sweetest) wedding photography industry leaders but their approach for capturing timeless, authentic moments directly reflect my values and approach to weddings. I also love their approach to using flash in a way that doesn’t look unnatural or “flashy.”
The workshop took place at Folktale Winery & Vineyards in Carmel and although it was a little colder than I was expecting, the landscape and breathtaking beauty of Northern California and this gorgeous venue did not disappoint!
Attending this workshop was a great way to kick off the new year and check a huge item off my bucket list! Now wedding season can hurry up and get here so that I can apply on of this amazing new learning!!
A huge thank you to Justin & Mary Marantz as well as all of the participating vendors who worked hard to make the workshop run so well!!
