I don't even know how to put into words what this shoot means to me. I first heard that Collin + Jenna started their wedding planning business (He & She Weddings) late last year, and as soon as I saw their style, I knew that I wanted to work with them. They are so incredibly talented, and man we needed someone like them in central Illinois. They are personable and sweet, and honestly two of the coolest humans you'll ever meet. I took one step into their perfectly thrifted downtown apartment and felt like... you know when you meet someone and they are like obviously way cooler and more put together than you, but they are also really nice and talk to you? Kind of like that. Like why are you talking to me you belong in a magazine.
Anyways. Their style is DOPE. It's moody. It's fresh. It's clean yet muted. All of you brides that are waist deep in stress from planning your wedding need to hire them.... after you look through what they put together and that I thank my lucky stars that I got to be a part of.
Our models, Astrid + AJ are a real life couple that got married this past fall. They re-read their real vows to each other, and we got REAL, GENUINE tears you guys. My heart couldn't handle it. They are the perfect mix of sexy + sweet. And if you scroll all the way to the bottom, I promise you'll see what I mean. <3
