blog_title_decorationKELSY, BUTCH & PARKER | WAUSAU WINTER SESSION

I don’t know about you guys, but I’m starting to feel like spring is just around the corner! It’s only the beginning of March, and already temps are warming. Call me crazy, but I love the season changes in Minnesota, and I get the feeling that I blinked and winter was over! Dare I say we were robbed of our notorious Minnesota winter?! So I’m bringing winter back with a little mini session with one of my favorite couples, the McCartneys! They’re fellow film photographers based in Wisconsin, and over the years they’ve become two amazing friends. We’ve photographed each other (too many times to count! but if you really want to count: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6), enjoyed countless yummy dinners, had getaways in Door County, traveled to California, and danced the night away at barn dances. Best of all, we have the greatest conversations. They’re the kind of magnetizing people that you want to be around all the time. So much so that I’m trying to convince my husband to move to Wausau, WI so we can be neighbors!

We took turns photographing each other for our holiday cards. It was bitterly cold, and our fingertips were frozen, but we still had fun snapping away. ENJOY!

Olivia & Paul were married on a gorgeous summer day at the lovely American Swedish Institute!  They hosted an outdoor ceremony and an outdoor reception underneath twinkling cafe lights. It was beyond dreamy!  Olivia and Paul are just the perfect match.  They both adore each other and Paul is the ultimate gentleman- he treats Olivia like every girl dreams and deserves to be treated. Their day was full of lots of love and lots of happy tears. It was such a joy to be a small part of it!  Thank you both for trusting me to document your fairytale day!

blog_title_decorationDEDRA & ANDY | SEPTEMBER WEDDING AT IMS

Dedra & Andy!  Where to even begin? They’ll make you laugh and smile so big!  They’re the kind of people you feel like you’ve known forever. They’re the happiest couple and their love is just infectious.  And, man, did they celebrate their love with one heck of a party. They enlisted the help of Blush and Whim to coordinate their day and make it oh-so-beautiful. And, can we talk about these florals by Tara at A Day in Provence?  The details were gorgeous (obviously), but the best part of the day was two people promising forever to each other. After they were pronounced husband and wife, they threw their hands in the air, and the look on their faces said it all!  D&A, wishing you a lifetime of happiness and joy!
