You may have seen a previous blog about this particular elopement, but I wanted to revisited & re-edit.

Mountains to me are a place that I feel at peace, I feel all my problems disappear, I feel like I can conquer anything, I am home. I have hiked/climbed 2 mountains in Alaska and multiple smaller ones in various parts of the country. I strive for adventure and crave couples were are filled with adventure in their hearts. I loved my trip to Lutsen Mountain near The North Shore in Minnesota. It was one of my most relaxing drives, and I could feel my heart lift when I saw hills, a lake that was like a ocean and beautiful waterfalls just a shore walk away.

As I scouted out locations to shoot this amazing couple I stopped at a rest area that was just steps from the water. I walked along the rocky shore, sat on a large rock and just took in the calmness of water. The sky reflected off perfectly, you should see every cloud in the clear blue water. I didn’t want to leave this spot, but I was so excited to photograph a beautiful couple at an amazing location!

The day of the elopement we all woke up so excited to get the day going and put all the details that we have all been swooning over together. We packed up tiny gondola’s and ourselves and traveled up a beautiful mountain with a 360 degree beautiful view! Even though it was a hot sticky day and the breeze was welcomed – we also love the wind for the dramatic movement. The ladies of Woven and Wed along side Collected Rentals put together a beautiful sweetheart table where Gloria and Walter toasted to their amazing new adventure! They helped bring the Pacific Northwest to the Midwest with deep colors and classic style. The flowers that Saffron and Grey brought and put together were absolutely amazing, I wanted to take all them home with me so I could smell them all the way home. Oh my gosh don’t even get me started on the delicious deserts by As Sweet It Is Bakery – that cake was both beautiful and delicious! When the bride arrived in her beautiful Truvelle gown from A&be Bridal, my heart skipped a beat.

Adventurous hearts and beautiful people in an amazing setting a love story in the Midwest Mountains

with love, christine

Pope Farm Conservancy Madison WI Engagement When we chatted about their engagement session we could have gone to all the iconic Madison locations, but we all thought it would be awesome to go somewhere different. Kimberly and Kyle have never been to Pope Farm Conservancy - and it is so beautiful in the fall. It is especially perfect for a session with a 12-week old puppy! OH, my gosh did this puppy steal my heart! I am going to say it again - if you bring a pup to your session I will be in love, instantly! You've been warned :) I am going to let them tell their rad story of how they've met: We met unexpectedly on spring break in Flori ...

Outdoor Iola Ski Jump Wisconsin Wedding .... PUBLISHED! Adam and Sara's wedding is still to date one of my favorites! Why? Because, when couples keep their wedding true to who they are and surround themselves with their closest family and friends - what could be any better? This couple has now been published TWICE - once for their engagement in Laramie Wyoming and now for their beautiful intimate wedding in Iola Wisconsin. It may have rained but it never got the couple down! Sara got ready outside along the ski trail, behind a antique dressing screen. The ceremony was set along the trail also, with old church pews for their guests to sit. ...
Jenna, Ben & Ellie / Madison Wisconsin Engagement
There is not enough words to express how much fun this family was during their engagement session in Downtown Madison and Olin Park ! There were so many laughs, bad jokes ( mine ), and dancing to be had. Even a little chasing from Justin to keep Ellie having fun while I photographed Jenna and Ben.

Jenna and Ben have AMAZING style ! With ever outfit change - they both looked AMAZING ! LOVED Jenna's blue suede heels, that Ben actually picked out and bought for her ! A ...
