Jon and Julie Wedding | Starline Factory, Harvard Illinois

This was my first wedding since I started my business in January after moving to Arizona. After 3 years of photographing weddings for Schilling Photography based in Peoria, IL it felt good to be back at it. I was reminded why this job is so important to me. Capturing one of the most important days of a person’s life is truly a gift. I make it my goal to catch the little moments of happiness, nervousness, and excitement all the while the couple just enjoys the day that was planned.

This more traditional wedding took place at The Starline Factory in Harvard, IL. This coveted venue is booked out years in advance by many couples. This old building was completely restored and repurposed. It truly is a site to see. This wedding I photographed was my little sister’s. Not only did I photograph the wedding I was in the wedding. Yes, it was crazy but I loved it and feel so blessed that I got to capture this special day and share my gift with her and her husband.
