Adventurous Engagement Session in Cedar Rapids Iowa

From the moment I “met” these two (and Kelsey’s Mom) via Skype, I just knew that they were going to be the best! These two have a love that you can just feel when you’re around them.  Justin and I stood back a lot during the session just allowing them to get lost in each other. There were so many moments of calm that were so beautiful. These calm moments were mixed in with some of the best laughs between them! It is always a beautiful thing to experience – love that was meant to be. These two met in college – while they were dating other people something just pulled them together. After 2 years of meeting and becoming good friends, Sean invited Kelsey to a party and the rest is history.

I always ask my couples how they knew they loved him/her, and when I read Kelsey’s answer my heart swelled so much. She knew when they met, it was a love that grew with every day they’ve known each other. She talked about him for hours to her Mother – when he had to go back to Germany. Her Mother told her they were in a “love bubble” – haha! Little did she (Mom) know that they were Life Teammates!

These two have a love that was set in the stars.

I just knew that we had to do their engagement session in Cedar Rapids – it’s where they first met. We started at COE College, where we tried to feed squirrels, danced on the lawn and they kissed in the vines. I always also try to make new memories while mixing in their story – so we headed to Palisades Park just outside of Cedar Rapids. This park was simply perfect to showcase their love in the wild. They got to dance in the sunlight, cuddle under the trees and gaze out at the sunset.

Justin and I are elated to photograph their wedding this coming October, head back to Cedar Rapids for camping at Palisades AND for Kelsey and Sean to move to Madison soon! Fate was sure in the mix of us all coming together!

Brianna & Kyle
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 ...

Mountain Elopement // Styled Shoot
As you may know that I am a huge lover of adventure and mountains! I wanted to share with couples getting married in Central Wisconsin that they don't have to go far to get to mountains, cliffs or and "ocean". I contacted the awesome Britt over at Woven and Wed to help put my vision together! And may I say she went above and beyond what I could have ever imagined. Together along with amazing vendors and my fellow photographer friend Emily at Emily Schmidt Photography traveled 2 hours north of Duluth MN to the Lutsen Mountains, stayed the night in a 3 bedroom condo talking about the shoot, drinking cocktails to then wake up in the beautiful mo ...

Photograhed a Wedding with a Clown ??
As a photographer I get asked a lot of silly questions like ::: Do you photograph naked people? Would you photograph me naked? ( these were mainly men that asked these questions ) --- I started telling people that asked these questions that I am naked while photographing people fully clothed. The funniest questions I have gotten was when I was second shooting, and I was having a great conversation with some ladies during cocktail hour ::: " Have you ever photographed a wedding with a clown? " I was taken back by this question, and simply asked - " Like, a clown as the Groom? Or ..... a clown wedding? Or .... with clown guest ...
