WEDDING TIP WEDNESDAY DON’T TRY TO MAKE EVERYONE HAPPY: Wedding planning can be a nightmare when you’re trying to please everyone. Trust me, everyone is going to have an opinion, but what you need to remember most, is that the only one that matters is yours! While you definitely want to think of others if you are having a large celebration (i.e. good food and entertainment), the day shouldn’t be centered on colors, styles, or traditions that you don’t like or value. I know Dad and Mom may be pitching in on the cake, but that doesn’t mean you choose buttercream when you’d rather have whipped. Make sure your big day is reflective of you as a couple. Intertwine all the details into things you love and that represent your love for each other. And lets be for real, these people know the day is truly about you – they’ll understand if you want to make the decisions! Want more tips? Check back each Wednesday for a new tip or join the HJP family by booking your wedding and getting all of these tips personalized to your big day! www.hollyjohnsphoto.com | 815-621-7530 | firstname.lastname@example.org #hjpfam #weddingtipwednesday #illinoisweddingphotographer #rockfordweddingphotographer #weddingplanning #beanexpert

WANT FREE WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY? I am giving away another FREE wedding package for the 2018 year. Like years past, I will be participating in the Stateline Splendor Bridal Expo and will be taking entries starting that day for a chance to win my COLLECTION I wedding package. That's a $2,400 value! Info cards will be distributed during the expo with directions on how to enter. If you are getting married in 2018 and/or have a friend who is, this is your chance to prepare your entry to win. All the entry requires is the couple's love story (and basic contact info). The winner will be chosen on Valentine's Day! Please feel free to tag any soon-to-be bride or groom. I can't wait to hear all the stories! Check out www.hollyjohnsphoto.com for examples of my work and my wedding collection details.
Bring on all the warm color tones, this girl is ready for fall! #illinoisweddingphotographer #rockfordweddingphotographer #hjpfam
What an AMAZING day. It was so hard to chose just a few photos to share of Justin and Melanie's big day. After a beautiful ceremony and some stunning portraits, these two danced the night away with their closest family and friends by their side. I cannot thank you enough for allowing me to be a part of your wedding!
Can I just say that I am totally in love with Caleb and Emily? Are they not just perfect for stunning photos? This amazing couple were truly blessed with a beautiful day for their wedding. Family and friends came from near and far, and the day just floated on perfectly. They were so easy to photograph - even if they felt awkward. I love how these images came out. Thanks for letting me tag along, you two!
What a PERFECT day for Terry and Tessa. They spent the day running around Barnacopia, and said their vows under the beautiful chandelier there. I don't think the day could have went any better. Thank you so much for allowing me to be a part of your big day!
