Milwaukee Woods Engagement | Madeleine + David

Meet Andrea and David! All three of us hail from Michigan and somehow found ourselves becoming long-term Wisconsinites 🙂 From our first meeting, I could tell that Andrea and David are both super driven yet also very calm & kind.

Golden Hour Engagement | Andrea + David

Last week I was able to be a part of a very special celebration (and the first party I’ve been to in a looong while!).

Lake Park Engagement | Amy + Joe

The wind caressed the side of the stone buildings that were nestled into the rolling green hills of Whistling Straits. The sunlight peeked through the leaves of the four pines and danced on the grass below. Golfers roamed the greens in the distance, and the river cutting through the 5th hole’s fairway brought an audible […]

Whistling Straits Wedding | Kortney + Matt

I love these two so much! I first met Ashlyn when I was pregnant with Anastasia, so to be able to celebrate their pregnancy with them is such an honor! We even have the privilege of living about a 3 minute walk from each other, so none of us can wait until there is a […]

Pregnancy Announcement | Ashlyn + Mike

It was wedding time. Kate slipped into her dress, put on her earrings and took a deep breath. On my cue, she walked out to see him. He put a hand on his heart when he saw her, taken aback by her grace, her beauty. He started tearing up, then Kate, and then every single […]

Elegant Marquette Wedding | Kate and Dan

The sun flickered through the newly opened leaves of a silver maple. The moment hung in mid air as Michael picked up his guitar for one song, a surprise. He began. His fingers plucked the strings of bronze as he sang Drew Holcomb’s “I’ll Never Forget the Way You Made Me Feel.” Tears rolled out […]

Choosing your veil for your wedding day can be WAY more challenging that it sounds! There are so many different types of veils, on top of finding one that works well for photos.
