Andrea & Josh | Married | Madison Wisconsin Wedding Photographer

Andrea & Josh

{wedding | 05.21.11}

Good thing the world didn’t end that day, we had a wedding to celebrate!

If mother nature really existed I would have given her one big HUGE giant hug that day.

We were so fortunate to have a beautiful day to celebrate A & J’s wedding day in Madison.

Going into the weekend there was an 80% chance of rain/thunderstorms.  Thankfully that forecast was wrong!

We started off at Holy Cross Lutheran Church in Madison.

Both Andrea & Josh agreed early on that they wanted to see other prior to the ceremony.

I love these moments, those first few seconds when the couple sees each other for the first time on their wedding day.

After the ceremony we headed straight to the Capitol.  We saw many Bridal Parties there that day but easily got a spot on the steps & spent some time doing Bridal portraits.

The Capitol is especially meaningful to A & J as this was where he proposed, only it was inside & the Christmas Tree was up.

After we photographed outside we attempted to get into the Capitol {we had gotten a permit prior to the day} but the doors were locked & closed.

Luckily we met a very nice security man who let us in, with less than 5 minutes to shoot.  It was very important to A & J that we get inside on their wedding day & get some images where he proposed, I was very thankful to that security guard.

After that we headed quickly to Olin Park & found some lovely trees that coordinated with the bridal party colors. #winning

We arrived at the Coliseum Bar for the reception shortly after that & got the party going!

Andrea & Josh had a great wedding party, a lot of fun & very easy going.

Every time I turned around people were laughing & enjoying the day.

It was our pleasure to be apart of the day!

Andrea & Josh :

You are such a lovely couple & we wish you the best!

Maria & Shawn | Engaged | Madison Wisconsin Wedding Photographer

When I first met with Maria & Shawn within just a few weeks of their engagement they had a lot planned out, ideas in their head & a vision of what they wanted.  It was fabulous!  We talked about different ideas of where to shoot their engagement session & decided on the Memorial Union, which will fit perfectly with their winter wedding @ the Union later this year.

One of the things I love about the opportunity to do an engagement session with my Bridal couples is it allows us to spend time together prior to the wedding to get used to everyone’s personality.  I get an idea of how you’ll act in front of the camera & you get an idea of me behind the camera & my “photographer ADD” {self diagnosed in case you were wondering}

We had a great session which was followed by a nice little lunch @ Dotty’s which was absolutely adorable & great food too BTW.

Thanks again M & S for the fun morning.  Looking forward to your wedding & enjoy the sneak peek!

Maria had purchased these little union chair ornaments last year & I just about died when I first saw them.

So stinkin’ cute.

Maria is an A.P. Art Teacher, she brought along her art pencils which was a perfect prop for the ring shot.

{p.s. the pencils smelled fantastic, who doesn’t love the smell of freshly sharpened pencils…}

We proceeded up to the Capitol.  Shawn & Maria had the idea of doing a “pro-tester-esque” shot on the steps of the capitol with signs that had their wedding date.  Both S & M are teachers here in Janesville.  We were in the middle of a few shots when this “crazy” dude came up with a video camera & began asking them several questions & videotaping the answers.  Little does he know I was doing the same ;)
