Change is a comin’ for Natale Photography

I released a very small sneak peek of the new marketing rolling out in the next few months.

New branding.  New website.  New blog.

Fresh design & Fresh ideas.

What do you think?  Like it?  Love it?  Gotta have it?  {ha, that’s from Coldstone Creamery}

I’m so excited, it’s been a long over due.

So with that I decided to be a little sneaky, just put it up on the BLOG & held a little impromptu contest to see who pays attention to the details…

It was fun, to read the responses I received both on FB & via e-mail. {thank-you for those that participated}

We had over 25 entries & three people that included all the same amount of detail in their answers {& some details that actually weren’t even new} & the person that was randomly selected as a winner was :

Kiara Krohn = CONGRATS

Contact the studio for information on how to use your $75 studio credit!

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!

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!

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!

Laura & Ben’s {fancy} Wedding | Janesville Wisconsin Wedding Photographer

Laura & Ben

{married 05.20.11}

Sweet family. Close relationships. Family traditions. Beautiful couple.

Beautiful day.

I’ve had the pleasure of getting to know Laura & Ben over the past year as well as their family & what a sweet sweet family they are.

As a mother myself I could appreciate how close they are as a family & that shows in everything that they do & that they prepared for in this wedding day.

I love documenting events like that, the love that they all shared was just so evident in the everything they did, the people that were there & in Laura & Ben.

They had a late afternoon/early evening ceremony @ St. William Catholic Church, which BTW photographers if you are looking for a beautiful {read well-lit} Catholic Church, St. William is the place to be.

We had a short time for portraits in between but we rocked it out & so did the weather.

We made it to the reception shortly after for Laura & Ben to kick off their celebration.

Only one word describes the reception room : WOWzers.

It was a photographers dream.

Thanks for allowing us to share in your special day L & B and enjoy your sneak peek!

Derek & Nikki

{engaged}

Wedding | October, 15, 2011

L.U.C.K.Y. in love.

We just kept hitting the jackpot during our e-sesh in Milwaukee last week.

light. location. love. sweet beautiful adorable couple.

We started out @ Miller Park & started shooting inside, asked around a bit to see if we could get in & shoot in the stadium & kept getting the run around by the ladies in the gift store.  We asked someone out in the hallway & eventually we were let into the private little patio from T.G.I.Fridays.  It was perfect.  But that was not good enough for us, we still wanted the seats.  So we walked around to the side by the Ticket Booth & a couple of doors happened to be opened & so we went it.  {of course, right?}  Well right there, with ZERO baracades was the entrance to the lower level seats.  Perfect.  Thanks much Miller Park, ‘ppreciate it.

We managed to get some beautiful light & hit some pretty great spots, but we weren’t selfish.  We got in & out before security was called.

“Oh sorry mr. security guard sir, we didn’t realize…”

We headed down to the 5th ward, downtown Milwaukee.  I had a few possible options in mind, but was going to make the judgement call once we got down there & I could check out the light, buildings, etc.  And then boom, I turned the corner & it was like a vision.  I pulled in, looked for a “No Trespassing” sign, didn’t see one & put the swagger wagon in park.  Heck YES.

This was an old abandon warehouse-type.  Beautiful light. So many little nooks to tuck in & shoot at.

Anyhoo it was simply fabulous as was Derek & Nikki!

They were very up for anything & it was great exploring with them & finding the perfect spots for their session.

D & N are having a wedding in Beloit/Janesville this fall & I can’t wait to document that for them.

They are so adorably in love & it was so much fun to capture that for them!

Enjoy the sneak peeks!

Francine & Kyle | Engaged | Janesville Wisconsin Wedding Photographer

Francine & Kyle

{wedding date | july 16 2011}

I recently met Francine {isin’t her name just lovely} & Kyle & what a sweet couple they are.

They’ve known each other for several years, grew up outside of Janesville & both come from farming families.

So naturally we chose to photograph outside on & around a few family farm locations, starting @ Francine’s parents home.  Between the two of them it seemed as if they knew every farm house within a 5-10 mile radius.

Gotta love that small town feel.

It was a pleasure to get to know you both a bit more during our session & I look forward to your wedding a few short months away.

Kyle actually proposed @ Tiffany’s in Las Vegas & they picked out the ring there.

This image was taken on Kyle’s front porch.  Those old family farm house he grew up in & has been apart of his family for generations & where someday Francine & Kyle will reside.

I think F & K realized I was slightly obsessed with this fabulous house & told them they could never ever tear it down.
