I think it is so sweet how things have come full circle. They met as a groomsman and bridesmaid in a wedding a few years ago. It must have been love at first sight because they hit it off at the wedding and haven’t stopped thinking about each other since. Now, in just a few short months they will stand up together again. But this time as Husband and Wife.

Turner and Erica’s Second Nature at Readscreek Engagement Session

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

We couldn’t have timed this session better to get beautiful spring blossoms for Cole and Treena’s engagement photos. We started near Boscobel, Wisconsin and ended at Treena’s Grandma’s farm. Her Grandpa chauffeured us around when the light was starting to slip away a little too quickly. Springtime this year has been full of rainy nights and muddy days. But, our evening together was beautiful. Not too hot, not too cold, a slight breeze whispering through the apple blossoms. Sunshine peeking through the branches. And God painted his artwork on the evening sky for some sweet sunset photos in the hayfield.

Cole and Treena’s Wisconsin Spring Engagement Photos

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

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

Jadyn wanted their session to feel like them. She went with denim and matching black t-shirts because it just reflected their style. They love to be outdoors – hunting, camping, fishing. Jadyn and Jacob packed a picnic to incorporate as well which I loved.

Jacob and Jadyn’s Mississippi River Engagement Session

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 […]
