I was so excited to meet Ali and Steve and photograph them at Apple Tree Bed and Breakfast. I usually do engagements months before the wedding but unusual circumstance had me meeting and photographing this Sheboygan couple only 2 weeks before their wedding. I had never shot in the Waupaca area so I had to ask around but through a great network of local photographers I heard about Apple Tree Bed and Breakfast. It’s a great spot along the Crystal River that has an orchard, bridge over the river, a barn and amazing open fields around it, what more could a girl ask for!Ali and Steve were nervous coming into the session but after a short time they opened up and allowed me to capture the fun, playful, love these high school sweethearts have for one another. As you can see I even included a shot of Ali on her phone because according to Steve, that’s how he sees her most of the time. I can’t wait to document this amazing couple again at their up coming wedding this Saturday!!

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!
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:
