UW Madison Wedding

Helen and Kyle had by far one of the most laid back weddings I have every photographed! They wanted a quick ceremony without a lot of decorations and fuss and to focus on each other as well as their friends and family on their wedding day. And I think it was achieved, the day was hot but no one complained or had any issues throughout the day. And the wedding meal I have to say was probably my all time favorite, a taco bar! For all my future bride & grooms, the "bar" has been set high, haha!

The Waters Oshkosh Wedding| Caitlin & Josh

Caitlin and Josh had the most amazing classic and romantic fall wedding at The Waters in Oshkosh, WI. The venue was built in 1903 as the Oshkosh Yacht Club with Nantucket-inspired porch and balcony facing the waterfront. When we arrived at the venue friends and family were bringing in decor, flowers, everything needed to create a beautiful day. You could tell by the amount of people who showed up hours early to help out this day was not only about Caitlin and Josh but about their families too. After getting dressed in a beautiful bridal room filled with light, the couple shared a “first look” on that balcony where the two couldn’t stop smiling and you could see the love between them. I am always an advocate for a "first look" as it gives the couple time to be alone before all the actives of the day, and makes for some of my favorites photos of the day.

The weather couldn’t have been more perfect for a fall wedding in Wisconsin, the ceremony was on the grass facing Lake Winnebago following guests mingled inside and out on the porches during cocktail hour. The dinner space was decorated with personal touches like Caitlin’s favorite candy, Skittles, and the cake topper with the letter "P". Gorgeous light pored in from the large windows and large chandlers added to a sense of warmth in the room along with the beautiful flowers from Petal Pusher Floral.

The day had been mostly cloudily so we weren't sure were would be able to get in the sunset photos we had planned for. But during dinner with the last few minutes of daylight the sun peaked out and created a beautiful pink sky allowing us those few last portraits of the day.

Caitlin and Josh thank you for allowing me to photograph your beautiful wedding day!

Central Wisconsin Wedding

Despite most brides being worried about how they will look if they cry on their wedding day, I love it. Not to have ugly crying photos but it shows just how important the day is and I’m so honored to be able to document that! You could see that throughout the day of Brooke and Kenn’s wedding. From the start of the day putting on her dress to the “not looking” first look, to the ceremony itself Brooke could not hid her emotions. I think it’s great for a bride and groom to have a moment to themselves prior to all the craziness of the day beings. But many couples don’t want to see each other so we find a stop they can exchange cards or even a few words and it makes for amazing images. The love and fun Brooke and Kenn share with each other and their family and friends could be seen at every moment of their day!Wisconsin Wedding_0001.jpg Wisconsin Wedding_0002.jpg Wisconsin Wedding_0003.jpg Wisconsin Wedding_0004.jpg Wisconsin Wedding_0005.jpg Wisconsin Wedding_0006.jpg Wisconsin Wedding_0007.jpg Wisconsin Wedding_0008.jpg Wisconsin Wedding_0009.jpg Wisconsin Wedding_0010.jpg Wisconsin Wedding_0011.jpg Wisconsin Wedding_0012.jpg Wisconsin Wedding_0013.jpg

While I wouldn’t choose the stress of changing your wedding date due to circumstances out of your control on anyone I’m so glad it happen to this couple. It was that situation that brought them to me and allowed me to document their amazing love for each other and their families. High school sweethearts Ali and Steve looked so in love and smitten with each other you would think they were still those teenagers who started dating 7 years ago. The love of their families was apparent to all of those attending big day as well, with everyone pitching in to make things run smooth despite the rain. The couple took it all in stride delaying the ceremony a bit but never bringing their sprits down. The wet grass brought out beautiful lush green that just added to the beauty of the day.

After making such amazing images at Ferguson’s Orchard for my styled shoot I decided to go back again this time for a family photo shoot. It was a perfect fall day with a cool breeze and a family of wonderful to work with. While the sun was a little harsh I think we made it work and got some great images!

Surprise Proposal-Engagement Photos

For those of you who saw my previous post about the styled shoot at Ferguson’s Orchard in Eau Claire here is the second half a surprise proposal! As planning for the shoot was beginning I knew I wanted a real couple to model for the shoot but who would be willing and available on a Sunday evening in the middle of summer was a bit of a problem. So after asking a few people I was talking to my co-workers at Eastbay and decided to ask fellow photographer, Sam if he and his girlfriend, Sara, would be willing to help me out. During this same conversation, held at the Pizza Hut lunch buffet across the street from the office, 2 additional co-workers were with us and it was throw out maybe Sam should ask Sara to marry him during the shoot. I felt like it was said in passing or just as a joke but after Sara agreed to the shoot the surprise planning was on! There were a few bumps along the way with keeping the secret but it all worked out. She had no idea and we had great photos throughout the shoot and I was so honored to be able to document this amazing moment in Sam and Sara’s life!Thanks again to all those involved in planning the shoot and those that helped!!!

Ferguson's Orchard Styled Shoot

After more than a month of many emails and planning everything came together on a perfect summer evening at Ferguson's Orchard in Eau Claire, Wisconsin for a styled wedding shoot.  I was contacted by the orchard to take promotional photos of their orchard that will now be available as a rustic wedding venue.  Rather than just shoot the venue I proposed we set up a styled shoot.  With the help of many contributors and a couple of friends to be models I think we put together an amazing shoot that I finally am able to share with all or you!  It took over 7 hours of set up the day of and ended with a surprise proposal, (but more of that to come in the next post.)  A big thanks to all that helped including my sister, Angie, for all the planning and the production.  Along with all those that donated their time and creativity including:
