An open letter to Brides about their wedding dress

To Brides Everywhere,

You dream of the dress you will wear on your wedding day, you try it on with your mom and best friend in tow, then you walk down the isle towards the man of your life. This dress you have dreamed of will get dirty, it will get ripped, and you may spill wine on it. But you know what? It doesn’t really matter, those rips can get mended, those wine spills can get cleaned, and that dirt just washes off.

Why do those things really not matter? What matters most is that you are walking down the isle to a man you have dreamed out, and that man is going to love and adore you till your last day on earth. He is going to love you even if your dress gets mud on it, a spider gets stuck in the tool, or your aunt steps on your dress to tear it. He will look into your eyes, tell you that that rip is a memory of a time you two started an amazing adventure together. An adventure that will be filled with little rips, messy arguments, and wine spills. And after you clean up from a messy argument you will look into each others eyes and remember how much you love him, and those tiny little arguments and messes really weren’t really that big at all.

I adore when brides will walk in water, sit on the ground and climb up on rocks for a stunning photo. Trust is another reason for this! I believe in the vision I have for their photo, and if they are willing to get a little wet and dirty it’s a winning moment for all! It’s OK to stay clean before the I Do’s, but after let it all go and dance the night away! You will be thankful you let go and enjoy it to the fullest!

Your wedding day is a day to celebrate, dance, drink and be present / don’t worry about those bugs, spiders and dirt, you can wash it.

cheers – christine

Memorial Union Terrace Fall Engagement / Jessica & Colin The Memorial Union Terrace is a Madison staple! When Summer comes and the colorful chairs come out - the terrace is filled with bustle. We head down there as often as we can to people watch and drink a pitcher or two of beer. Jessica and Colin were nothing different, this spot meant so much that Colin proposed to Jessica at the Terrace. In front of dozens of people he asked the love of his life to marry him. We started their session at the Union Terrace where the wall was covered in beautiful fall colored leaves! I LOVE this wall year round and this was the first time I got to u ...

Shoot and Share FINALIST & SOLD OUT Workshop!
Ya'll yesterday was a freaking amazing day! First, the RAD PHOTOGRAPHERS RETREAT ..... SOLD OUT! WHAT!? I double and triple checked my emails before announcing and I was in SHOCK for a long time! Justin got home from bowling and we celebrated with a Central Water Brewery Nineteen! This retreat is my heart pouring out, wanting to create a safe place for woman to come, learn and relax. I've been to a ton of workshops - and sometimes it can be intimidating when in a room of 20 or more people. You want to so badly ask a question, but you don't raise your hand in fear of being judged. So I planned this retreat to have 10 attendees and only 4 sp ...
