Every so often, you’re lucky enough to meet a couple like Brenda and Kevin, full of vibrant joy and enthusiasm for one another. People often ask me how best to pose for engagement photos…but really, the answer is to not “pose” or focus so heavily on it – portraits like this sing when you can let loose and feel those feels. Thank you Brenda and Kevin for being so warm, receptive, and comfortable in front of the lens. Advertisements
The rolling hills of central Texas are near and dear to my heart, so you can imagine how thrilled I was when my friend Coley, from 3 of Cups Design + Florals, asked me to photograph a styled shoot at Spicewood Vineyards earlier this September. We had an amazing time, playing dress up, drinking wine, gallivanting around, and making beautiful photos. Check out the magic below!

Liz and Josh were so ecstatic on their wedding day that no hiccups, even forgetting the marriage license (whoops!) could bring them down! They happily ventured out in the soft drizzle with their bridesmaids and groomsmen for some of the dreamiest portraits we’ve had the privilege of shooting. Scroll down to see!
Marisa and Jim shared an emotional First Look on the Hotel Metro rooftop in downtown Milwaukee. Despite the rain starting to sprinkle, the two stayed outside to share the moment with their family members, who seemed just as thrilled as they did for the upcoming ceremony. Although the rain was unplanned, with umbrellas in tow we managed to take some beautiful portraits in the soft, cool light. Nothing could dampen these two’s spirits on their wedding day, and we are so happy we got to share these moments with them!
I first met Marisa and Jim in a small coffee shop on the East side of Austin. It was serendipitous that this beautiful couple, who was engaged in Texas, was moving up to Milwaukee in the summer and planned to marry there as well. I’m so happy our schedules aligned so I was able to photograph their engagement session in my second home city – Austin. In late August, Sarah and I photographed their wedding at the Wind Point Lighthouse in Racine, and despite the day’s unpredictable weather, it could not have been more perfect. Their ceremony was intimate and moving…full of a lot of happy tears, sunshine, and even a little light rain. The party finished their night off with dinner, drinks, and teeny tiny desserts at Braise in Milwaukee. Wishing these two the best of luck in their future together!
Being a wedding photographer is a wonderful job. We attend fabulous parties, eat delicious cake, and we dance the Cha Cha Slide more than everyone we know. Although we love our couples and their wonderful weddings, sometimes we take for granted how much work it takes to put one together; how much sweat and tears; how many sleepless nights. We tell people all the time – we don’t really believe in “Bridezillas”. We believe in women who know what they want, and do what it takes to make it happen – and we love those women. We are those women. This eclectic, jewel toned photo shoot was not easy to pull together, but the sun was shining and the team was determined. In the end, it was entirely worth it. HUGE thank you to the team that worked so hard to make these beautiful images, and a special thank you to About Face Salon in Mequon for joining the team last second!

Earlier this year we were able to participate in a fantastic bohemian styled shoot at Grassdale; with spacious nordic tentipi, open grasslands, and a dress so perfectly suited for a windy blustery day, this awesome group off vendors was able to pull of some real magic. Paula, planner from Beau Tied Events in Austin, Texas, says of the styling: “I plan a lot of weddings that are geared toward bohemian aesthetics and I really wanted to create a soft, romantic and whimsical shoot to show case this style fitted for a early spring wedding soiree in a teepee!” Sounds fun! We love the setups in the tent, how warm and intimate the space is, and being able to go play outside in the wind, then come back in when it gets too chilly.
