such a gorgeous wedding for lisa & ben! surrounded by all of their adorable nieces and nephews, their sweet pup – floyd, and family & friends they exchanged vows and celebrated the night away. ending their reception with a lantern send off was complete perfection. enjoy their preview!

i am so in love with kaylie & alex’s snowy winter engagement session! it was crazy cold and brutally windy at times but the pretty falling snow made it totally worth it for sure. so much snuggling (my favorite!) along with their beautiful amazing chemistry. they certainly didn’t allow the chilly temps to distract them from each other. we decided to use their wedding venue for our session together, and i am so happy we did. it is a gorgeous farm, and it will be fun to explore its beauty again on their fall wedding day. the horses were totally intrigued and watched us for most of the session ~ adorable. hope you enjoy their snowy farm session!

such a glorious friday in october we had for jillian and dave’s downtown milwaukee wedding! having photographed jillian’s sister kate’s wedding a few years back i knew the day would be a complete joy to capture. they have fabulous style and love and value photography as much as i do. we started our day with a first look then headed off to make some pretty photos with a bit of nature and a little city to balance out each of their likes. their old st mary ceremony was lovely followed by a grand celebration at the grain exchange complete with an orchestra. so much goodness, love, beauty, joy and happiness around every corner. their images truly speak for themselves. hope you enjoy the preview of their day!

it may have been wet and drizzly all day for melissa & joe’s wedding day however there was so much love, light, and happiness shared by all those in attendance i think we hardly noticed. ;) after the ceremony we hopped up the street to corvina for wine and celebration with their wedding party before heading to the hilton garden inn for more wine, hugs, heartfelt speeches, and dancing. a completely lovely day that i truly loved sharing! hope you enjoy their wedding day!!

courtney and liz celebrated their wedding day on a gorgeous sunday afternoon at wolf peach with their closest family and friends. there was delicious food, drinks, lots of smiles, laughs, and hugs all around. we dashed away after the ceremony for some fun portraits around wolf peach that included some of their favorite things… city views, alleys, and a kitty! :) much success to you both as you start your new adventures together in MA!

i adore this family! they have such an easy loving way that is hard to resist. we had a lot of fun together exploring and enjoying our beautiful summer evening together. enjoy some of my favorites!

such a gorgeous day we had for andrea & max’s outdoor lake geneva wedding at hawks view golf club! i was greeted by so many beautiful details, lovely and gracious bridesmaids, and excited groomsmen and family that were truly a pleasure to capture. there was something magical about the soft pink flowing dresses, baby’s breath, and rustic details.  everything felt effortless which meant much planning and thought went into every part of their day.  both andrea and max’s moms gave speeches which were so heartfelt and perfect.  we created some of my favorite romantic end of the night photos to date that day.  hope you enjoy their blog post!

bridget & peter’s wedding day was just lovely! i adore when couples have their ceremony and reception at the same location. the day becomes more intimate and relaxing for everyone involved. we planned out the day perfectly allowing time for photography and lots of celebrating with family and friends. the wedding day details were beautiful with gorgeous florals, individual pies, a selfie polaroid flower backdrop, and 2 wedding dresses! bridget’s second dress was created by her personal attendant and it incorporated an adorable squirrel fabric, rose gold zipper and sequins… it was amazing! so many heartfelt speeches were given that evening followed by lots of dancing. enjoy a few of my favorites from their best day ever!

i love when couples select meaningful locations or choose to incorporate something special that speaks to them as a couple for their engagement sessions. dave has a passion for flying so jillian’s uncles cub plane was the perfect addition to their gorgeous session. the plane used to belong to jillian’s grandfather and i just love that extra piece of history which truly makes it that much more special. :) jillian and dave were so adorable together and i cannot wait to capture their october wedding.

i was so looking forward to katie and brian’s wedding day! i photographed kim (katie’s sister) and richard’s wedding 12 years ago… what?! ;) so it was an honor to share another awesome wedding with this family. the day was ridiculously cold and rainy but everyone rolled with it and we have beautiful fun photos to prove it!! it totally started raining harder right when we headed out for photos after the ceremony, but when we wanted it to rain for some evening photos it was barely sprinkling. oh spring in wisconsin you kept us on our toes. :) in lieu of clinking for a kiss, a meat auction was held with proceeds going to the wounded warrior project… kim was quite the auctioneer. hope you enjoy a few photos from this beautiful spring wedding as much as i enjoyed photographing it!
