Meet the Now & Then

Yes, we're actually sisters! And yes, we LOVE working together! Some people spend their entire lives searching for that one thing they love... their life's purpose. Well, snapping away at all the tender moments that make you and your love so beautiful is what Jesus created us to do. Tomorrow isn't promised, but this moment is. Freezing every last moment in time for you is what brings us joy.

We focus on wedding photography, but every moment is worth capturing! From family photography to senior sessions, we got you covered! Just navigate to our "info" page to learn more about our services. 

We're located out of Peoria, Illinois. But we're always up for an adventure! Want to have a destination wedding or elopement? We're your gals!

catch us in action


Erika (upper right - baby sis) is the voice of Now and Then. From blog posts to social media, she's our writer and marketing mastermind. She has a nag of pulling words and phrases from her own made-up dictionary, so don't be surprised if some things don't make sense (in her world, they do). When she isn't making up words or chasing her two boys around the house, she's usually cuddled up in a giant, fuzzy blanket, eating mint chocolate chip ice cream, and reading a book. 

Kayla (upper left - oldest sis) is the face of Now and Then. When it comes to communicating with clients and booking sessions, she's your gal! Apart from being our business guru, she loves long walks on the beach and a steaming cup of joe (extra cream). Her three children keep her on her toes (and often her coffee cold). Just don't ask her for directions... for real though! She'll likely get you and herself lost. It's just one of the many corky traits we love about Kayla!

But wait!
There's one more...

YES! We have ANOTHER sister (the middle child) and she’s our photo editor! She’s a graphic design major who was blessed with all the creative juices. When Tarah isn’t helping us edit your gorgeous photos, she’s raising her four beautiful children and tending to her other babies… her chickens (yes, CHICKENS!). She has mad interior design skills and she’s about the craftiest person you’ll ever meet. We love having her work her magic behind the scenes, helping us deliver you a gallery full of beautifully edited photos.

But wait! There's one more...

Leading up to your wedding day, we are in constant contact. Once you book us, we send you our bridal guide. This baby is packed full of wedding tips and tricks, especially when it comes to preparing for a day of beautiful memories and photos. You're not in this alone! We love guiding our couples through the process. So don't stress about a thing. We got you covered! You just focus on marrying your best friend. 

Say "I do"


We're booked! YAY! Now we schedule your engagement session. This is so important because you learn our style and we get a feel for your chemistry. Don't be stressed about your photos... just come as you are, ready to love on one another! We are here to capture you as YOU. No awkward prom poses. Just the simple, tender moments that make your relationship so special. 

snuggle away


If we're a good fit, it's time to book your wedding with us (and cue a happy dance)! We require a signed contract and deposit to secure your wedding date. So once you know for sure you want the Now and Then Sisters part of your wedding day, let's get the party started before someone else snatches up your date!
