The experience 

You've been dreaming of this day since you were a little girl.  You've always pictured yourself surrounded by all your friends and family as you marry the man of your dreams!
You don't just want pictures, you want and experience.  You don't want to be rushed or stressed, but rather sit back and enjoy your day knowing your wedding pictures are going to be gorgeous!  You want genuine, real pictures that show your love for your fiance because you know at the end of the day, pictures will be all you have to look back on.

Our style of wedding photography is joyful, genuine, and timeless. The result is bright and airy images that are full of emotion.
I will laugh along with you, cry when you read your vows, act more like a friend than just your photographer, and love on you and your love story. My couples are more than just my “clients.” They truly are my friends and people that I value getting to know and love! My goal is to have the perfect balance of emotion and creativity and to create the perfect experience.

Servicing Champaign, Bloomington, & Peoria Illinois. We are also available FOR travel and destination weddings.

next step:

We don't think wedding photography is a one-size-fits all! We know each couple is unique and has their own personalities, wants, and needs. We service the type of couple who wants joyful, genuine portraits of themselves, along with an incredible experience! The first step in the process is determining if we are a fit for you! If we are a match, we move onto the booking process!

Meet & Greet

Yay!! You are a made to be a Stormy couple! Now we need to make sure your date is safe and secure so we can make your wedding dreams come true! Once we meet and go over our contract, collections, and booking payment you will be officially a Stormy couple! Now it's time to get started!

Save The Date

And now the fun begins! We love getting to know our clients and helping you get comfortable with us. Even if you think you are not photogenic or your finance hates getting pictures, I promise you will be doing amazing 20 minutes into the session. After your engagement session, you will be featured on the HSP blog and you will be sent your online gallery for you to download your pictures and share however you wish.

Engagement Photos

Once we are a few weeks away from your wedding day, we will sit down and make sure we are prepared for your big day! We will create a timeline together to ensure we don't miss out on your dream wedding photos! We work with  couples to plan their day so they can have magazine worthy images of their own!

Timeline

It's here! Time for you to relax and leave all the work to us! Your day will be a blur so we want to make sure we capture traditional shots that every couple needs while also capturing the candid moments in a creative way. Our favorite time though is when we get to have you all to ourselves and create gorgeous portraits for you to hang on your wall! 

Your Wedding Day

After your wedding day, you will be featured on the HSP blog within a week of your wedding! We love to share images while everyone is still on cloud 9 from the day!
