Edwardsville, IL – Where I Live

Recently I have had the pleasure of connecting with a group of other professional photographers. It has been great getting to view their work and share information. As a group we are participating in a Blog Circle. It is a way for us all to stay connected and share our work with more people. Once a month we will all be posting images pertaining to “Where We Live.”

When I think of where I live, I think broader than just my home mailing address. As someone who grew up in the Glen Carbon/Edwardsville area for most of their life, that is home to me. So much that even though I moved away for about 7 years, I decided to come home when it was time to settle down. Being back home allows me to rely on my Family as an amazing support system, but also has given me the chance to become friends with many of them, not just family.

Two of my friends got married a couple of weeks ago. It was a blessing to be a part of their day, and an even better gift when they chose me to photograph it. These pictures were taken in the first few moments of them getting to see each other. “Because of where I live,” I was able to share in that moment with them.

Congratulations again to my good friends Jeff and Shannon. I wish you both the very best!
