shelby & kolby | downtown engagement | peoria, il.

I’ve known Shelby and her family for as long as I can recall — I remember her as a young girl, and I took her senior photos years later, and then I photographed her sister’s wedding a few years after that. When she reached out to inquire with me about wedding photography after getting engaged,…
