Karen & Will | Lake Mills Wedding Photographer

Karen & Will

July 30, 2011

Lake Mills, Wisconsin

I’ve known Karen now for at least 5 years & it was such a pleasure to work with her & Will on their wedding day.

Karen : you were just simply stunning, the dress, the details, everything.  Fabulous job friend.

Will : your smile is just so dang contagious & I couldn’t help but smile every time you would look over @ your new wife

Lake Mills Golf Course gives way to many different opportunities for portraits & thanks to a few fabulous Golf Card drivers we were able to take advantage of them all!

K & W had a late afternoon/early evening wedding under a big flowing tree with the wind blowing from behind.

The day was full of laughter & special special moments, shared with friends & family.

Thanks for having me apart of your day K & W, enjoy all of your  images!

Francine & Kyle | Janesville Wisconsin Wedding Photographer

Francine & Kyle

July 16, 2011

Ceremony | Rock Prairie United Presbyterian Church

Venue | Pontiac Convention Center

Catering & Decorations | Best Events

Hair | Robin’s Nest Salon

Video | Frogman Productions

Engagement Session | Kyle & Francine E-session {BLOG}

Francine & Kyle were married on a fabulous summer day, which I was so thankful for considering our E-session was a wee bit chilly that day.

They both come from farming families & so in planning for the portraits that day it was very important to both of them that we were outside.

We wanted the images to reflect them, who they were & what their relationship is about.

Luckily the ceremony was located at a Rock Prairie which is out in the country & surrounded by plenty of farm land, it was so perfect for F & K.

F & K are surrounded by large families & a great group of friends that care for them both & love them, which made our job that day, much easier.

We started out @ Robin’s Nest Salon in Milton for the girls’ hair & headed to Francine’s house to get ready.

We soon met Kyle @ the church where they had their first look prior to the ceremony.

I love it when couples choose this option because it allows us so much extra time for portraits.  We were able to do all Family & Bridal party portraits prior to the ceremony.

The reception was at the Pontiac Convention center in Janesville & looked so elegant decorated in the Black & White color theme they had chosen for their wedding.

So classic, so beautiful.

We had a blast documenting your day Francine & Kyle!

Andrea & Ryan | Victorian Village | Elkhart Lake Wi Wedding Photographer

Andrea & Ryan

July 9, 2011

Elkhart Lake, Wisconsin

Venue | Victorian Village Resort

Florist | Twig Flowers

Elkhart Lake was such a beautiful choice for a semi-destination wedding for Andrea & Ryan and their guests.

The scenery was perfect & the area offered a lot of options for family & friends during their stay.

I would highly recommend it if you are looking for a destination style wedding without all the additional travel.

From the beginning of the day I could tell that this family was very close, a lot of emotion & very special special relationships.

I love photographing people that are just so genuinely happy.

Enjoy all of your images Andrea & Ryan, it was our pleasure to work with you both & your families.

Best Wishes

I have to pause here for a moment on this image & offer a bit of insight on exactly how important our jobs are as photographers, the responsibility we have & the depth of that responsibility.

So many times, we as photographers get caught up with getting that “perfect shot”, that shot that will look amazing as a canvas for our clients, or on the cover of their wedding album.  More often than not we stress the importance of the Bridal Portraits {as they are quite important} but sometimes forget how precious simple Family Portraits can be & will be for years to come.  I have will admit, I’ve even used the term “boring family photos” when describing the timeline to my clients.  Explaining to them that we will zip right thru those “Family Portraits” so that we can move on to the “fun stuff”.

I look at things a lot differently now.

I received an e-mail from Andrea within a few weeks after their wedding telling me that their Grandpa wasn’t doing well & asked if I could get her some images of him on her wedding day soon, so she could print them off & show him.  I remember as I was reading that e-mail I cried, for her, for her family & all of the people that knew this man.  It was in that moment that I felt the heavy responsibility {more than ever before} that we as photographers carry every single weekend, every single session, to capture life, the way it is, right then & there.  To preserve those moments in time so that when those people are no longer with us, their memories & their smiles will live on forever.

It was so present that day, the love & closeness this family shared & it was truly my honor to document that for them & be able to give those images to Andrea to share with her family & her Grandfather.

So for me, this simple, yet beautiful image of Andrea & her Grandpa Lloyd & Grandma Lucille is that “perfect image”.

Wendy & Vinny | Appleton Wisconsin Wedding Photographer

Wendy & Vinny

Saturday June 19 2011

Venue : The Paper Valley {Appleton Wisconsin}

W & V had an amazing day for a wedding.  It was beautiful & clear for portraits & the wedding in the afternoon.

The day was all about being laid back & celebrating W & V  and laughing along the way.  One of my favorite things about this couple & their families is that they love to laugh.

The love, the relationships & the bonds just shine through & well make my job, so much easier!  Thanks W & V for being beautiful peeps.

Thanks for having us apart of your day.  Thanks for e-mailing me back in the day & thanks for trusting your gut that I was a long lost sister.

Your family & friends were fabulous & a joy to photograph from begin to end.

I had along with me Second Shooting, the fabulous Michelle Martin, with Michelle Martin Photography.  Thanks so much, you were wonderful!

Even though W & V have seen their entire gallery of wedding images, I still wanted to {better late than never} do a BLOG post with some of my favorite images.

This summer has turned out to be much much busier than expected & I appreciate everyone’s patience as I take the appropriate time for each client to make sure their final galleries are a beautiful reflection of their day.

Enjoy the not so ’sneaky’ peeks

The day went very smoothly & we had ample time between the ceremony & reception for fun & relaxed portraits of the Bride & Groom and their Bridal Party.

Heidi you looked amazing that day & Bobby you cleaned up very nice yourself!

The love you two share was such a pleasure to photograph & document that day.

Your smile, laugh & love is contagious.

I wish you both all the best & I truly enjoyed working with you & your families!

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!
