2018 Goals & Bucket List

Lifestyle Wedding
Our bucket list and goals for the upcoming year!

2017 brought us into our 2nd year of living in Madison as a Destination Wedding Photographer. The main reason we moved to Madison Wisconsin was because we were always in Madison for session, fun things with friends and weddings. The silly thing that happened while living here is that we were in Milwaukee weekly. There was a month where every weekend we had a wedding in Milwaukee Wisconsin. Will we be moving to Milwaukee now? Ha, no! As we love the city, we love coming home to Madison. 

In the last year we got to photograph at new venues with amazing couples. Some of those venues I  have been dying to photograph at. Like Rustic Manor 1841, which ended our crazy season. We booked another couple there for 2018 and we are so excited to go back! Also, in 2018 we booked a wedding at Villa Terrace in Milwaukee, a place I have been wishing on all the stars to be able to photograph at! 

We are known for photographing small intimate weddings, and we got the rad honor of photographing a small elopement in Minnesota and an intimate wedding in Wausau on Rib Mountain. It’s awesome that we have photographers who are booked referring us to amazing couples who have a non traditional look at their wedding. One of the best things about coming together as a couple is making new traditions and memories. Make your wedding day yours, as we tell each and every couple we photograph!

Where do we see ourselves in 2018?

This is such a hard question to answer this early in the year. Why? Because, we are just starting to plan, update and dream for the year. Last year was so amazing for us, and the fact that 2018 is ecen more awesome so far we can only imagine mega things for our bucket list. 

We would LOVE to photograph your wedding, elopement or just YOU :

Yosemite California

Mt Baker Washington for a snowy or hiking elopement

Olympic National Park – any of those beaches (La Push or Ruby Beach) would be AMAZING! Or among those large trees would be stunning! 

The North Shore in Minnesota, so many amazing and beautiful places! 

More backyard weddings – rent a rad Airbnb and get married in the backyard!

Norksedalen – this place is AWESOME!

Camp Wandewega – camp lover like us! You could have a chill wedding on the lake ending with a fire and marshmallows.

More in home sessions!!! It’s chilly outside, let’s snuggle up inside with coffee, bake some cookies and capture your real life home memories! 

Along with weddings, we would LOVE to photograph more families & couples! By couples we mean, engagements, weddings, and babies shouldn’t be the only time you get photographed. Don’t wait, plan a fun session just celebrating your love for each other! 

Also, more professionals who want more than just a head-shot! Let’s hang out get some updated head-shots AND some rad marketing photos to use on your website, social media and such!

2017 was an amazing year and we love this time of year to be able to look back on the amazing things that happened, along with taking note of the things we need to change for the better. Our goal in life and business is to never stop growing, never stop learning and never stop exploring. 

Photography Bucket List

What is your New Years Resolution? 

Some of our personal goals are to start living with less. Moving into a smaller apartment has us concentrating on what we actually need. So every single time we go shopping we ask ourselves if we really NEED it if we answer NO or probably then we DO NOT get it. We are also hoping to move into a bigger apartment, just so I can have an office again. I can’t concentrate with my office in the living room like I could with a sperate office. 

We also want to start setting aside time to hangout with friends, and connect with new people. Life goes by way too fast to no spend it with rad people.

I look over the seniors that I have photographed over the years, and I always think about my senior photos and photo-shoot - and think WOW times have changed! The style is so much more relaxed, personable and fashionable. Even in studio senior photos ROCK! The things I see my fellow photographers do in studio is so inspiring! I sometimes wish that I could re do my senior photos NOW! But that would be a little strange to have a almost 30 year old signing up to do senior photos? HA! That would be a site! As I start marketing for 2015 Seniors I remind parents that their son or daughter has their own personality, and I want to capture it! In a ...
What is the very best Holiday!?
I love that every year I get together with my sisters family to document their growth, but to also be the first to see my niece and nephew in their adorable Halloween Costumes! This year they were a unicorn and a dragon! My nieces costume had padding in her bum area and it was so cute watching her walk ... she had the biggest bum of a 3 year old! Reid still doesn't like things on his head so it was hard keeping the dragon head on, but he was just as adorable! Halloween is one of my favorite times of the year, and I cannot wait to dress up as Cat-woman and Justin as Bruce Wayne. Yes I may be a 31 one year old woman but I will dress up every ...
Beauty in any Location
Everyone that I book always asks me about locations - and at the time of booking I tell them to meet me some where or my home before we go. When they get there we usually go to a different location, or one day I did it at the edge of the drive way. The photo below was taken at the edge of the driveway - the trees behind my apartment are always so beautiful I wanted to utilize them. The days before were rainy so everywhere was wet, wet, wet - so tall grass was out of the question. We used a small part of land that looks like it was taken in the woods, so they could stay completely dry. I have taken Baby Bump photos in a small patch of grass th ...
