I don’t normally blog many personal events in my life, but in this case I had my good camera with me and thought why not!! Fall is my favorite season (even if I was a little flat-footed in welcoming it this year since our summer was so long awaited!) and our yearly trip to Basse’s is […]

Anastasia’s Fall Trip to Pumpkin Fest | 2019

This Sunday evening engagement session was the perfect end to a busy week of shoots! Emily and Alex were so laid back and happy it was truly so EASY to photograph them naturally! They chose to explore the Northpoint neighborhood in Milwaukee for the backdrop of their engagement session and I am SO excited for […]

Milwaukee Engagement Session | Emily + Alex

To me, Lisa and DJ are the picture of longevity. On their one year wedding anniversary, they will simultaneously be celebrating an entire DECADE of being together! I love working with couples who have that kind of history because I sense very strongly that they have so much to teach me about marriage, commitment, and unconditional […]

And with fall comes engagement session season 🙂 Retzer is gearing up for fall too- the tall grass is growing golden, leaves are starting to change, and the field full of yellow wildflowers this summer is now purple.

Fall Engagement at Retzer | Kim + Jake

I am SO excited to share this session!! Kortney is a good friend from college and when she asked me to photograph her wedding, I was so incredibly honored! Though I met her at Loyola in Chicago, she and her fiance Matt now live in Arkansas. They brought the perfect touch of southern charm and […]

A Classic Garden Engagement | Kortney + Matt

It’s finally October! Fall is my favorite season, and it seems like it’s officially here now that it’s October. Though I love most everything about this month, that’s not why October 1st is important to me. The real reason behind the significance of this day? October 1st is St. Therese’s feast day. There are so […]

Why October 1 is Important to Me

I think it’s safe to say that when you live in the Midwest and plan a September wedding, you have to be prepared for anything: rain, wind, highs over 80, lows under 50. You never quite know what you’re going to get! If you’ve been reading my blog for a while, you might remember Emily and Dan’s […]

Milwaukee Yacht Club Wedding | Emily + Daniel

Everyone, meet Olivia and Justin! I first sat down with them in February over coffee, and within the first five minutes of chatting their love was so apparent to me. It wasn’t a flashy, new love feeling that I witnessed; rather- it was the comfort each other’s presence brought coupled with a trusting longevity that […]

Wauwatosa Engagement | Olivia + Justin

I got to travel back to my home state of Michigan for this wedding, and boy was the barn wedding waiting for me a TREAT!! There aren’t many brides that put in as much effort as Ainsley did to make their wedding day uniquely their own. From the twinkle lights to the vintage plates, every […]

A Boho Barn Wedding | Ainsley + Michael

“Love each other like your life depends on it, because it does.” Leah’s stepdad offered this advice in his speech before dinner, saying it as a sort of benediction over the room full of family and closest friends. The flickering candlelight mimicked the twinkle in everyone’s eyes as he closed by recounting the line of […]
