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

Talk about magic. Mason and Ashlea absolutely rocked their engagement session. It started out cloudy, but just in time for golden hour the sun came out. And boy did the sky decide to show off then. It was a little chilly. A little windy. The trees were still greener than we expected. But I don’t […]

Mason and Ashlea’s Engagement Photos in La Crosse 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 makes the best photo location? I think this will vary depending on your photographer. Take the same couple, same location, same time of day, but change the photographer? Your photos will be completely different! One of my favorite backgrounds for photos is so simple. A big open grassy field, and a gravel road. I […]

Shawn and Lindsey’s Wisconsin Fall Engagement Pictures

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.

Ben and Nicole’s Summer Wisconsin Wedding at Pettibone Resort in La Crosse

If I had to choose a few words to describe Stoney and Amanda’s wedding day? Fun, energetic, and so beautiful. These two put so much thought into the little details for everyone involved. Their wedding party, parents, guests, kids, pups. They are both such giving souls. Thinking of everyone else even on their special day. […]
