Meckley Family Fall & Christmas Photos | Quad Cities Family Photography | Davenport Photographer

Miriam Bulcher

The Meckley Family won my giveaway that I had a few months ago and so we met up last week to take their family photos! 

With the weather being uncertain and fluctuating as much as it has, I thought we would try out Vander Veer Botanical Park here in Davenport and boy, it was a pleasant surprise!! We got some AMAZING Christmas looking photos and overall the weather ended up being perfect which allowed us to go outside and get some more great photos too! 

Enjoy!

The importance of the room when getting your wedding dress on | Quad Cities Wedding Photographer

Miriam Bulcher

Imagine Green walls in your wedding album

Nobody really thinks of green walls when they think of their wedding day. There is SO much going on and so many things to consider that sometimes some details get lost in the mix. I will help you to plan ahead and ensure that your day gives you the best looking photos possible!

More Natural Light = better photos 

Now, this may depend on your photographer but if you are booking a natural light photographer this rule totally applies, and applies to every single situation of your day: where the girls are getting ready, where the guys are getting ready, ceremony location, bridal party portraits, first look, dancing at the reception. Literally, everything. 

Natural light allows the skin tones to look their best and illuminate the subject when photographing them. Without this, skin can look muddy or washed out and can reflect the colours of the wall (so if the walls are green, your skin will have a green tint to it.)

Think of light when you think and plan your day

In the important moments that will happen in the course of your wedding day, think about the lighting in that situation. The venue, the room, park etc! If you are having trouble envisioning it, always feel free to ask your photographer for suggestions, they will gladly help you!

Getting Ready room sets the tone

Where you get ready really sets the tone for your day whether you realize it or not. If you have a room with natural light, you will receive beautiful images of your dress, flowers, details and also those crucial intimate moments between your mother helping you, your bridesmaids and sisters. All of those moments will flourish with the proper setting.

Ask your photographer for help! 

Don't be afraid to ask your photographer for their input. They would rather you do this than go into planning blindly. I always offer all my resources to all my brides to help them with their special day. It can be stressful but it's also one of the biggest days of your life. Let me help you enjoy it!

Dani + Aaron Oakwood Country Club Wedding | Quad Cities Wedding Photography | Madison Wedding Photographer

Miriam Bulcher

When I worked at Sephora

in Moline, a beautiful girl came in asking for concealer, I couldn't help myself and asked her if she would be interested in modelling. She said yes! I had her come in when I was building my women's portrait portfolio and she brought a gorgeous friend with her, her friend's name was Dani. I thought the two of them were such a hoot and could tell they were bff's! They were admiring the wedding photos I had on the wall and they continued chatting how they had a bet on who was going to get married first. Olivia, my model said for sure it would be Dani and Dani scoffed at the idea saying it would be a long time before that would happen. 

Well, this conversation took place exactly in the fall of 2016 and look at where we are now! I may have giggled when I saw Dani get engaged on Facebook earlier this year, mostly because I remember so clearly the conversation her and Olivia had in my studio. 

I can't say how happy and thrilled I am that I became friends with Dani-and she choose me to be her photographer for her wedding!

Dani and Aaron know who they are and what their tastes are, they know what they want in life and they could not WAIT to be married. This is why I photograph weddings because the love that is in marriage is unlike anything else. I remember feeling that way and it excites me seeing other couples in the same position.  

Dani and Aaron's Wedding was INCREDIBLE!

The affection that they have for each other is so beautiful to watch and they truly are amazing people, which you'll see from these photos below. I hope you enjoy looking at how beautiful their day was. While it was a bit chilly (and has definitely added to the memories), their day couldn't have gone any more perfect!! 

Thanks to the vendors who made this day amazing!

Kelly + Mike Mississppi River Distillery Wedding | Quad Cities Wedding Photography | Chicago Wedding Photography

Miriam Bulcher

Kelly and Mike met at Grumpy's in the East Village of Davenport and it was meant to be - they both consider themselves so lucky that they met! 

They have two beautiful little dogs named River and Frankie, they are very much their pride and joy which you will be able to see in the following pictures. I am so happy that they included them in their engagement photos and their big wedding day! 

The day, though cold could not have been any more perfect with the only hiccup being that the store left the security tag on Mike's suit pants so he had to run over and have it taken off! While it was cold, Kelly was prepared with her gorgeous fur shawl and blankets for the guests at the ceremony! With a pizza food truck and the distillery for alcohol, it was a perfect reception! 

Thanks to the vendors who made the day even more amazing!

The Kopinski Family | Quad Cities Family Photography | Davenport Children Photographer | Chicago Family Photography

Miriam Bulcher

Yesterday I had the pleasure of photographing my friends Carly and Ben, they have an adorable son Declan who is just over a year old. 

Carly and Ben haven't had photos done since they were engaged/married so I was super excited to update their portraits! They also have two beautiful dogs, Jasmine and Thor. Thor wasn't into it that much but it's okay because they looked adorable and are just a big part of their family.

These were complete family photos with the dogs! I hope you enjoy these photos!

Megan and Clay moved to Davenport for Clay to go to Palmer. It was a hard few years of school, but now Clay is all done with school and officially a Chiropractor - which is amazing and they drove up from Idaho for the convocation ceremony! 

Megan sent me a message on the drive here asking if I had some time to photograph them. I got so excited! We had a beautiful sunny evening last week and Megan and Clay have THEE most beautiful family!!! 

Fall is off on the right foot for me, with these photos to kick off the season I can't help but just get giddy sitting at my computer.

Eagle Ridge Resort Wedding | Galena Wedding Photographer | Quad Cities Wedding Photography | Chicago Wedding Photographer

Miriam Bulcher

Eagle Ridge Resort Wedding Venue, Galena, IL 

A few months ago I had the pleasure of assisting at a wedding that took place at the Eagle Ridge Resort in Galena. 

This was my first time in Galena and I was very excited as I have heard nothing but amazing things about it. It did not disappoint and neither did the wedding. Eagle Ridge is absolutely stunning and offers SO many options with regards to how you want your wedding. This wedding was in their large ballroom and used for both the ceremony and reception. That being said, they also have outdoor options as well.

Lighting could not have been any better and if you are looking for a wedding reception venue that will guarantee your photos to look amazing, look no further than Eagle Ridge Resort! 

Take a look at these photos below and you will see what I am referring to!

Emily + Jake Davenport Engagement Session | Quad Cities Wedding Photography | Rock Island Wedding Photographer | Chicago Wedding Photography

Miriam Bulcher

Emily and Jake met at a concert

They saw each other in the crowd and thought to themselves that the other was cute. She gave him his number and they went on a few dates after that Emily went abroad to study and didn't expect much of the relationship though joking that maybe Jake was *the one.* Well, lucky for us, he is the one!! 

Jake proposed at the same concert where they met, though to a different band as to not give it away completely. Emily was surprised though she had been anticipating his proposal for a while. I mean, Jake, that is an amazing proposal. I wish I could have been there! 

I am SO happy that I photographed this beautiful couple and I get to do it again for their special day at Quarters 1 mansion next June!! They are incredible people and I can't wait for your wedding!

Emily's hair and makeup are by me.
