Friday August 19 2011

Venue | Veteran’s Terrace, Burlington Wisconsin

Entertainment | Live band : Kind of a Big Deal

To view Chris & Crystal’s Chicago Engagement Session, click here.

One of my favorite places I’ve shot at this year has got to be the Veteran’s Terrace in Burlington Wisconsin.

C & C had thee absolute perfect day for an outside ceremony.

I can’t really put into words how cute these two are together.  Simply put, they make my job look easy.

C & C opted to have a first look which was just lovely & allowed us ample shooting time that afternoon before the ceremony & even a bit afterwards to head downtown Burlington to find a oh so fabulous BLUE wall.

The reception, was laid back, fun & was led by the boys from “Kind of a Big Deal” band out of Janesville.

WOW, they were amazing & it was a blast watching everyone enjoy themselves!

Chris & Crystal : best wishes to you as you start your life together, it was such an honor to be a part of your big day {stephanie}

Megan + Andy | Married | Janesville & Beloit Wedding Photographer

Megan & Andy Lewis

Saturday August 6, 2011

I can not say enough wonderful things about Megan, Andy & their families.

Really & truly it shows in their relationships & the guests that attended their wedding & everyone that knows this family.

It was so much fun to document & Megan & Andy had a beautiful August day to celebrate with everyone.

I just love love love M & A’s story.  They have literally known each other forever & dated long long ago in grade school & even went to a school dance together.

They went their separate ways & started dating again a few years later, and the rest as they say, is history.

This past year during our time together it has been such a pleasure to get to know Megan & Andy.

Thanks again for a wonderful day & keep in touch!

Also a big thank-you to the fabulous Andrea, from Andrea Paradowski Photography for second shooting with me that day, she did a fabulous job!

It consisted of images from her parents relationship because Megan & Andy were married on her parents’ anniversary.

Such a sweet sweet family!

Jack & Sawyer | Brothers | Janesville Wisconsin Portrait Photographer

Jack & Sawyer

These little boys are simply adorable & were so much fun to photograph.

It was helpful that we were outside & they were able to get some energy out @ the same time.

This session worked out perfectly for them.  We shot @ a nearby local ‘woodsy’ park & then ended up at their elementary school.  Which worked out great for a nice backdrop for some of their portraits as well as a few of them playing baseball @ the end of the session.

Which for this family is a must.  They love baseball!

Enjoy the Sneak Peek, Fields family!

Lynzee & Jason | Engaged | Janesville Wisconsin Wedding Photographer

Lynzee & Jason {Engaged}
Wedding Date | September 17th, 2011

I met Lynzee last year through one of my 2010 Bride & Grooms.

We hit it off right away & I loved how upbeat & bubbly her personality was, I was so excited to hear from her when they got engaged last year!

Lynzee & Jason are perfect for each other, always laughing, always smiling & they are the type of couple you just can’t help but be happy when you are around them!

We had a blast during their E-session & I loved getting to know them better!

I can’t wait to be apart of your big day this September, coming up so SOON!

Enjoy the sneak peeks!

When we were planning out their session we knew that one of our stops would HAVE to be Rivers Edge Bowl in Janesville.

That is where they first met & they share a lot of memories from this place!

Thank-you SO much to the owners of Rivers Edge Bowl for allowing us to come in & kind of take over for a few hours.

They were very very accommodating!

Sterling turns TWO | Janesville Wisconsin Family Portrait Photographer

Mr. Sterling turns TWO

Happy Birthday, little guy!

This is family number two for the month of June that added a new baby to their family within days of our session.

We had Sterling’s two year session on a Friday evening & Scarlett was born that following Monday!

So glad we were able to get one last session in before Miss Scarlett joined the family.

It has been such a pleasure to watch Sterling grow into such a handsome young toddler & now a Big Brother!

I love working with families every year & have really enjoyed working with Sarah & Matt over the last three years!

Enjoy the Sneak Peeks & coming soon will be Scarlett’s Newborn BLOG post.

Michelle + Michael | Maternity | Janesville Wisconsin Maternity Photography

Michelle + Michael

M + M = Baby Brusberg

This maternity session was especially meaningful to me.

I’ve known Michelle & Michael now for almost 4 years.  I met them when they first booked me for their wedding & have had the pleasure of working with them ever since.  Not only have M & M been clients, but I’m also proud to call them my friends.

Michelle started assisting on weddings for me a couple years ago & it has been a pleasure to get to know both her & Michael better as well as their families.

When planning this Maternity session we knew our vision was a mixture of studio & outdoor {sunset}.  We ALMOST rescheduled because the heat was suppose to be unbearable that day but we decided to chance it, because this was very important to Michelle & “just in case” she was early we wanted to be prepared.

Well the “just in case” certainly happened & little baby Greta May Brusberg was born three days later.

{Note : Michelle was the first of TWO clients in the month of June that went into Labor within three days after our session.  So if you are booking a session @ the end of your pregnancy, know that my photo sessions, just may induce labor, ha ha}

Enjoy your Sneak Peek M & M.

I’m so so happy for you both & look forward to watching you embark in this crazy thing called parenthood.

Love to you both & sweet baby Greta

Amy & Andy | Married | Janesville Wisconsin Wedding Photographer

Amy & Andy

{May 28th 2011}

Janesville, Wisconsin

The rain held out for us, thank goodness.

We had a beautiful beautiful day.

Amy, Andy & their families were just a blast to work with & constantly were laughing all day long.  It was certainly contagious.

They were married @ First Lutheran Church in Janesville & the reception was @ the Holiday Inn Express, here in Janesville.

We were so lucky to be able to photograph @ the Tallman House {Thanks Sue!} & it was amazing.

I had a fabulous assistant with me that day, Jessie & she did a great job!  Thanks again Jessie!

Thanks for a great day & enjoy your sneak peeks!

Amy : I don’t think I could love your dress anymore.  Unbelievably beautiful.
