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.
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!!
I had the honor of capturing Stephanie and Eric’s beautiful fall wedding in Chippewa Falls. The weather was a bit uncertain but we were lucky enough to have the rain hold off until after all the photos. With the great location for photos after the ceremony, the soft overcast light and a great couple with a fun wedding party I couldn’t have asked for more!
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:
