Damian and Leigh had the outdoor ceremony by the river that they’d been dreaming of. And the water droplets only added to the romance of the day. After the ceremony, we did some fun photos with the wedding party and clear umbrellas. And of course, some of the new Mr. and Mrs. Jilk!

Damian and Leigh at Celebrations on the River, La Crosse, Wisconsin

Jordan and Madison’s wedding was one in a million. They were both so laidback, ready for fun, and organized. Everything just flowed so smoothly. I loved the intentionality and thought these two put into their day. Their ceremony was beautiful. One of Madison’s lifelong friends, Owen, was officiating. As a friend, he was able to […]

Jordan and Madison’s May Wedding at Celebrations on the River

Words cannot describe how excited I am for Tim and Lynnae’s wedding next summer. I was already in love with Lynnae’s vision after meeting her for coffee and chatting all about her wedding day plans. Now that I’ve seen the two of them together, my heart is overflowing. These two are so fun and laidback […]

Tim and Lynnae’s Wisconsin Engagement Session on Farm

Shawn and Lindsey had originally planned an intimate backyard wedding at their home in Richland Center, with a reception in Tomah to follow. It seems Wisconsin October weather had other plans though. I was amazed how smoothly everything transitioned to Cranberry Lodge in Tomah. The staff there was so kind, attentive and paid attention to […]

Shawn and Lindsey’s October Wedding in Tomah Wisconsin

From a sparkling gown to sparkly shoes, Kelsy was GLOWING. Her dress from the Bridal Boutique in Platteville was perfect. And Chase cleaned up pretty nice too – from hunting and fishing to a navy tie and suit. He and Kelsy make a great team.

Chase and Kelsy’s Fall Wisconsin Wedding

What a beautiful wedding to end my 2023 Spring/Summer Wedding season. I’ve known Jedidiah and Emily since they were young and so seeing them fall in love, and getting to capture it on camera was so special. These two have been so intentional throughout their romance. Prioritizing spending time together. Praying together. Choosing to honor […]

Jedidiah and Emily’s July Wedding at Gatherings on the Ridge, Wisconsin

These two wanted their wedding weekend to be filled with fun for everyone. And a roadtrip to the Wisconsin Peninsula was the perfect way to start it out. They started their weekend with a fishing charter trip onto the lake with their officiant and friends and family. They not only got to watch the sun rise, but also had great luck with their catch. Nathan and Bri’s family made sure I got to have a great weekend also.

Nathan and Brianna’s Summer Door County Wisconsin Wedding

The lake, the country vibe, the beautiful northern feel. The emotions. The surprise first look with Chase’s daughters. The touching first look with Danielle. The reception filled with their engagement photos. The way everyone treated us like we were part of the family. The soft, neutral colors. The song Chase (a musician) recorded for Danielle to walk down the aisle too. The fact that I got to spend the whole day with my sister as an assistant so I could take both photos and video. The laughter and fun from the whole bridal party. The way Danielle and Chase would be naturally holding hands throughout the day. How excited they were to finally be husband and wife. Gosh, I could just go on and on.

Chase and Danielle’s Beautiful Rainy Day Wedding at Bullseye Golf Course, Wisconsin Rapids

It was a hot day, and we got there just after 3pm which was probably one the hottest times of the day. But that didn’t stop the magic from happening! These two did absolutely great, and so did everyone in their wedding party. Even the little people smiled for a couple of shots!

Kyle and Sarah’s Wedding Ceremony in Prairie du Chien Wisconsin

Everything they’d been working on to bring this vision to life. It was now. It was here. Ben turned. Took her hands and had the biggest smile. So much love in his eyes. The river was softly flowing in the background. The sunshine streaming. They took in the moment. Shared their first wedding day kiss.
