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!

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!

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

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!
