I’ve had the honor working with a lot of amazing couples this year and Derek and Shannon were no exception.

This wedding was just an absolute pleasure to shoot! When I first met Derek and Shannon via Skype and they told me they were going to have a Scottish wedding…I was super excited!!!  Upon booking me, Derek gave me one of the nicest compliments…he said he booked me because he knew that I would create the best pictures they have ever seen of themselves…I hope I didn’t disappoint.

I didn’t get to meet Derek and Shannon face-to-face till the wedding day as they reside in Indiana.  However, from the moment I met them…I knew it was going to be a great day! Emily came along with me for this wedding and we kept commenting to each other about the way Derek looks at Shannon…it’s obvious he is head-over-heels for her!

The wedding and ceremony were held at the Como Zoo Conservatory on a beautiful day earlier this month.  The weather was amazing too!  One of my favorite moments of the day was at the reception when Derek explained how he found his “one in a billion” with Shannon.  They sure make a cute couple!

Derek and Shannon…thanks for having me there to capture your special day! Wishing you many many many years of happiness together!!!

Best,
John

    All of the pictures turned out beautifully but if I had to choose one I would pick the one where Derek is leaning back against the tree and he and Shannon are staring into each others eyes. The shadows and lighting in this picture are amazing. Great work!

    So much of their personalities show through in these pictures. They are beautiful shots…but also really wonderful people! Great job at capturing their spirit and the love they share.

    They are all beautiful pictures. I really love the one where you guys are holding each other and laughing…it perfectly shows how much you love and enjoy each other. I also love the one of you guys and the wedding party, everyone has great smiles of joy on their face.
