Caitlin and Rich’s Villa Terrace engagement session was one for the books! This venue might be my absolute favorite in all of Milwaukee- it’s not often that you feel like you’re in Italy here!! Villa Terrace’s old arches, columns, and sprawling Renaissance garden totally rivals the real stuff! I met Caitlin when we were both […]

Villa Terrace Engagement Session | Caitlin + Rich

I am SO excited to feature Kimberly and Nick’s engagement session today! Our time together was relaxed, easy, and full of laughs along the way. I’m pretty sure that one of the reasons we got along so well was because they are both teachers- and my teaching roots run deep. Nick and I even discovered […]

Boho Retzer Engagement | Kimberly + Nick

The sweet Finn sisters are back!! I had the pleasure of meeting this lovely family last year when we took some Christmas themed photos, and seeing them 6 months later is such a treat! They’ve both look older to me even since November, and now we are celebrating both of their birthdays! We had so […]

Birthday Session | The Finn Sisters

This past Sunday I had the opportunity to meet Cassidy and Alex just weeks before their wedding! We laughed and chatted throughout their whole session, and made me feel like we were old friends, not someone they had just met for the first time! It’s my guess that my interaction with them isn’t an anomaly- […]

Romantic Retzer Nature Engagement | Cassidy + Alex

I had wanted to be a wedding photographer long before I ever said it out loud. And the first person I actually spoke the words, “I want to be a wedding photographer” to was Domenick. In general, he believes in me more than I believe in me, and was very excited that I had fiiiiinally […]

Lake Park Family Session | The Matsons

When I first saw Erica the morning of her wedding, she was glowing. It wasn’t her freshly finished hair or make-up that was the reason; it was herĀ joy. She appeared to love every part of the morning: being with her best friends, giggling in their matching robes, applying the last swipe of lip gloss. The […]

St. Lorenz Wedding in Frankenmuth | Erica + Mitchell

A few days leading up to Katlyn and Caleb’s wedding, Caleb emailed me wanting to secure a plan for rain. The forecast didn’t look favorable, and in his email he used the words “torrential downpour” which was exactly what my weather app was saying. As I drove to the wedding a few days later, it […]

UW Madison Memorial Union Wedding | Katlyn + Caleb

I did the math in my head as I drove to their engagement session. It had been 9 years since Ainsley and I had last laced up our soccer cleats together šŸ˜±It’s hard to believe it had been that long! Still, when I hopped out of the car and hugged both of them, it felt […]

Michigan Woods Engagement | Ainsley + Michael

It’s no secret around here that I love weddings… I am a wedding photographer after all! But want to know something I love even more than weddings? Marriage. It’s not glamorous. It’s not easy. It doesn’t really get most people excited the way a wedding does. But in my opinion, marriage should be celebrated farĀ moreĀ than […]

Cherry Blossom Anniversary Session | Katie + Adam

“Falling for Traci wasn’t falling at all. It was walking into a house and suddenly knowing you’re home.” Scott ended his vows with this sentiment, and for a moment we all just hung on those words of his devotion. Though Traci had been preparing herself for an emotional day all morning, it was her dad […]
