What a very special time for this very special couple...

Deana and Matt are getting married in FOUR DAYS!

Chad and I know Deana very well from our time together at Carthage College. Even though we don't see each other very often, she has been an amazing friend over the years. (For example, since we've known her, I don't think she's ever failed to send either of us some form of birthday card on our birthdays.) We definitely value her friendship!

Deana has found her perfect match, no doubt—we couldn't be more excited for her and Matt to get married on Saturday! Here are a few photos from their engagement session...


For their save-the-dates, wedding invitations, and wedding shower they had that "old classic movie" theme going. We wanted to add a touch of that to some of their portraits with this romantic, twilight theater setting.


They were such troopers...you'd never guess that the wind chill was below zero! No amount of hand warmers were gonna do the trick. It was just frigid....bone-chilling, tooth-numbing, unforgiving cold air with bitter, gusty wind. If they could withstand this and keep smiles on their faces, they can withstand anything!

Deana and Matt, we're so excited for you two! We can't wait to see in 4 days!
