Nate and Bethany

We recently got married as well :) which explains the delay in posting. But now I'm ready to get back on schedule!

I met Bethany a few years ago though some photographer friends. So when she and Nate asked us to photograph them, we knew we'd have to be on top of our game! Fortunately for us, their fun-loving attitude put us at ease. We had an engagement session with them last fall and we've been looking forward to their wedding ever since!

First some details: here is her beautiful dress, and Nate's grandfather's cufflinks

Lydia is one now!

This is Lydia! She is one of our friend's babies. We have had the privilege of photographing her since she was about 3 weeks old. I can not believe that she is one year already. She was the first baby we got to shoot together professionally.

Her blue eyes make her photos pop. She is a delightful baby to be around. And she cheers me up, no matter what mood I am in. I love little Lydia and her fantastic photos!

YAY! Oh I am so excited! We finally choose a name for our business. We went with Chang2 Studios.This is fitting for many reasons. The obvious, we are getting married in 3 months and I will be a Chang too! So we will be Chang Squared. Plus I had already drawn out a really cute logo for it. I can't wait to design it and get it up on the site and business cards.

So we do have the domain name for our site , but there is not much up on it yet. We will have to keep everyone informed. For now we are still using the

We have been so busy, hence why the website and name has taken extremely long. We have shot a few weddings each month. We have another one tomorrow up in Rockford. And the following weekend we have Nick and Katie's. Here is a photo from their engagement session with us. We are so excited to shoot their wedding. Such a great couple to work with.

We needed this!

So I have decided that we need to start promoting ourselves and our photography. We have had great word of mouth so far for most of our weddings and engagement sessions. Keep posted and we will let you know how each of our sessions have gone along with some photos!
