One of the main reasons I love being a wedding photographer is because I get to go places I've never been and meet people I otherwise would have more than likely never met. I was able to do both of those things at Josh and Lauren's wedding in Tremont, Illinois a few weekends ago. I hadn't met Lauren or Josh until the night before their wedding and by the end of the day it felt like I'd known them forever! These two are so much fun and their day was such a joy to photograph. Enjoy a few (dozen) of my favorite shots of the day! Also, here's a big wedding tip: if you want to do a sparkler send off, do it right before the sun sets like Josh and Lauren did and the results will be so much better than if you wait until it's dark!
