These two were so. much. dang. FUN!! Seriously, the whole day just had an easygoing and fun vibe where not a frown was to be seen. The Seeboth was the perfect backdrop for their ceremony and reception, and making pits stops for portraits all around Milwaukee – including the Public Market and watershed – really captured the essence of the city in their portraits. Simply loved capturing this day! What a privilege

I first met Veronica over Skype, and from the moment we started chatting I already knew I would love working with her and Josh! Having been in a longterm long-distance relationship myself with Kris, I related to that aspect of her + Josh’s relationship. We got together in April for their engagement session at Devil’s Lake State Park, and it was obvious from the first shutter click that these two were meant to be together – they were just so natural together. Their wedding day was the same way: a gorgeous mid-September Saturday with the most perfect weather; you could feel the air sparkling with happiness for these two! After the ceremony, we stopped at Monches Farm who graciously allowed us to take some portraits on the farm. (Thank you again!) The evening wrapped up at Country Springs Hotel under a full harvest moon, and it couldn’t be a better ending to a more perfect day. Congratulations Josh and Veronica! Kris and I wish you nothing but the best!

(incoming super-belated blog post!!) Matthew + Caroline’s spring wedding at the Oconomowoc Lake Club was nothing short of a fairytale. Their love story was one of the sweetest I’d ever heard (coworkers who fell in love – and their old boss gave a speech at the reception! Not a dry eye in the room!) and you can just tell that they were made for one another. The weather was perfect, everyone looked amazing, and their lifeguard/nautical decorations that paid an homage to how they met were simply adorable. We absolutely loved photographing this wedding, and wish them nothing but happiness in their future!

Jack and Emma are the best kind of people. Both incredibly kind, funny, and good-natured, it was some kind of wonderful to be able to capture their wedding day. I was totally excited from the moment I heard it was going to be Tiki-themed — how fun is that?! In addition to their gorgeous venue in Milwaukee (South Shore Pavilion, located right on Lake Michigan) Jack and Emma made their wedding day completely one-of-a-kind with adorable decorations and even custom Tiki wedding tattoo (hello, awesome). Congratulations, you two! We wish you nothing but the best!
