The past few weeks have been a whirlwind, and this week I have gotten my brain back, wrapped around it all – and ready for a double header wedding weekend! The past two weeks I got to do 2 engagement sessions, 2 weddings, and 2 family sessions! I am living high on life after so many giggles, some great client meetings, and words that melted my heart in emails. I have also booked 2, 2015 weddings that I am over the moon excited about!

And make sure to also check out Denise and Keven’s awesome Dells of Eau Claire Engagement Session by clicking their photo below ! I mean – I had them sit in the middle of the road, while a car was coming down – and they ROCKED it!
OH – and while I am at the blogging awesomeness – check out on of my favorite weddings of 2014 on the blog by clicking the photo below! Chad and Emily’s wedding was filled with love, romance, and great family and friends celebrating their marriage!
Oh man – the wonderful people of the past two weeks just don’t stop! Check out this adorable family below – we walked their backyard, and couldn’t keep our eyes off this adorable little man!
That other family I told you about? That just happened to be my sister’s family – we had so much fun walking some bike trails, throwing leaves and oh so much giggling!
Oh my gosh – I also went to De Pere to meet with Lindsey and Adam for a relaxing coffee and river walk engagement session – the light at their session was oooooh so dreamy! Blog coming soon!
Having a job that both makes you cry with happiness, and stress – it’s this job that I love to the stars! It’s a job that I am thankful everyday to have! Why do I do these weekly reviews? Because people need to know that without you, each and everyone of you – I wouldn’t be here! You all melt my heart with happiness, and make all the sleepless nights and gallons of coffee, oh so worth it! Your guys seriously rock my world!
I am a gypsy at heart I swear – I LOVE traveling! Or it might be because of my parents – growing up in our family we went on vacation every summer. This was hard with my dad being a farmer, it wasn’t always easy to get away. We went to a different state almost every year – the only states we didn’t get to are : Maine, Texas, Alaska, and Hawaii. I have since gone to Alaska on a solo trip to work 150 miles North of Fairbanks – and 60 miles south of the Arctic Circle. While there I traveled to the top of the world, Barrow, Alaska. It was a great adventure! Sadly the only country I have made it to is Ireland – and I am sorry Canada does not count : )
I am dreaming of the day I get to travel to Japan, Indonesia, Africa, Europe, and South America. I plan to travel more yearly, with my awesome boyfriend. We already started a fund for a trip to Europe! And I plan to go camping a few times this year – I have missed it’s simplicity. I yearn to experience everything this world has to offer – adventures await!
I am also dreaming of photographing people in love in the mountains. I am in love with the mountains – I am serious! When I retire it will be in the middle of now where, with a view of a beautiful mountain range. A place where I can hear the birds chirping, and the wind blowing. My favorite range in the US is the Grand Tetons in Wyoming – LOVE LOVE LOVE that place! ( hint hint brides out there ! ) It is a very under rated National Park, and always highly encourage everyone to visit it at least once – and stay for a while and take it all in.
Below are photos from : my sisters and I’s trip out West, Ireland with my friend Gretchen, San Diego with Justin, below the first mountain that I climbed – Sukakpak Mt in Alaska, me on some rocks on the shore in Ireland, and the Grand Tetons ( FAVORITE RANGE IN THE US! ).
Travel …do I travel? HECK YES I do !
No matter where you are getting married I will travel to you ! I love meeting couples from all over – and hearing their stories. I may be located in Stevens Point Wisconsin – but I have weddings all over Wisconsin and even one in Minnesota. When it comes to the initial consultation I have met couples in the middle, or via the phone conference. I will soon add Skyping to this ! It is great to see the face that goes with the voice !
No matter where you are getting married, I would LOVE to photograph your wedding, no matter if it’s on-top a mountain, in a field, a backyard, hills of Ireland, ANYWHERE! I even have totally awesome pricing for out of country and state weddings ( states outside of the Mid-West, like Colorado, New York, Maine, the Carolina, Montana, California … and MORE! )
The photo above is taken last September in Central Park, New York City. This country, mountain loving person ADORED this city! The history, the culture, the food, the flower stands ( really want some here in Stevens Point ) and seriously the energy. May I say that it is one of the cleanest cities I have visited to this day also – no cigaret butts everywhere, only a few pieces of garbage blowing around. My I must say my favorite part of the city has to be Central Park – we only saw a little bit of it, but wanted to stay there all day. I am a HUGE people watcher and this park is AMAZING for just that! I cannot wait to travel back to the city someday and see more of it.
Yes today is the first day of official Spring ! WHOOHOO !!!
The sad truth is that it just snowed the other day, and we still have feet of snow outside our doors – BUT I am looking on the bright side ! It’s getting warmer, the sun is in the sky longer – and it is getting warmer ( I swear ! ) I LOVE Spring, and cannot wait for the flowers to blossom, the green grass, the rustle of the leaves, and to get planting ! I have lots of planters out on my deck, and this year it will not be any different ! I will share when it all the snow melts and I get to plant again !
It’s the time of year that we are planning our summer vacations, summer school for the kids, and yes Family Photos ! I can’t wait to get outside, in the tall grasses and photograph families ! People in Love ! Don’t wait till the last minute to plan your family photos ! I have limited dates available this Summer but would LOVE to schedule you and your families session !
Don’t have kids? No married ? That is just as great ! I LOVE photographing couples in love ! You don’t have to be married or have kids to get up to date photos of yourselves ! I have made it a goal to get photos done 1 – 2 times a year. It’s great to see how we have changed, to capture the love year after year ! Photos are important ! Not just the photos you have on your phone or Facebook – beautiful memories hanging on your wall and in those frames.
I am so excited for Spring – and to meet new people to photograph – new hikes I am going to go on – the beautiful weddings that are booked – and just maybe a tan ! Yup I may be tan this summer – I have been a pale pale girl the past few years because of work. I am a workaholic that is learning to slow down a little more everyday and take in the world around me.
Here’s to warm weather ! The sun in shining – and Spring is Here !
