A Barefoot Bride & A Dirty Dress


Wisconsin Wedding Photographer - barefoot bride - Madison WI Wedding Photographer

Can I tell you about my favorite all time kind of bride? A bride that loves her dress so much and wants to get amazing photos – but is willing to get it a little dirty. She doesn’t mind taking her heels off and walking in the grass barefoot, or drop some Cheetos on her gown. Because she know something that some brides forget – it’s OK, the people at the dry cleaners are magicians.

I know that you’ve dreamed 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

After a few months of online courtship they met at a bar in Appleton and hit it off over a few beers. These two love to cuddle their adorable dog Oliver while watching a badgers game or binge watching their favorite shows on Netflix. When Brianna and I met to talk wedding we bonded over our favorite guilty pleasure shows like Vampire Diaries and Arrow - we talked about why Arrow was an awesome "superhero" and why she decided to name her pup after Oliver (the Arrow). While they are not giving Oliver all their attention they drink wine and paint, they are pretty competitive too when it comes to their creations - they will have Facebook contests ...

These two ... what can I say .... they were so much freaking fun at their session! We were laughing for 90% of it! From smelling faces to butt poses to walking barefoot on some rocks. The past few weeks I have been blessed to have meet with so many great people! And these two are no exception, we started the session out at Iverson Park then ended at a random field in Plover Wisconsin. These two danced in a field and posed in a pond. They were up for anything, and rocked it! David, the butt pose is going to happen at your wedding, no matter what! And just might happen randomly with just Justin and I at home. (people this is something really aw ...

I first met Kimara and Kris at a wine bar in downtown Stevens Point - we met here because it was Packer Game Day ! They came in all geared up - I LOVED it!
