Elegant location, bright and fresh colors, wonderful couple. This wedding just had it all. Kelsey and Mark planned a wedding day that had traditional elements mixed with fresh pops of colors and flowers. With the perfect downtown location, we were able to take advantage Capital views along with catching the last minutes of golden light at Monona Terrace.
To top the night off, a live band kept the party going and people dancing long into the night. There is just a different party vibe that comes with a live band. Maybe I’m just a fan of live music, but any event with live music just gets an extra gold star.
Shannon & Julie
Session: Wedding Style: Outdoorsy, Fresh and Romantic Location: Geyserville, California
This sun-drenched California wedding was so full of charming details, bright colors, and epic views. This stunning vineyard on the top of a hill that overlooked Sonoma County was the absolute perfect background for this lovely wedding.
The modern, hip colors that Julie and Shannon chose blended perfectly with the natural outdoor colors of the vineyard. Because the sleek, modern house and grand views of the vineyard were so beautiful, they were able to have simple details and accents that just enhanced all of the surrounding beauty. This active, sweet, California couple had the perfect completely outdoor wedding! As the guests danced the night away under the stars, it was definitely a wedding day that will never be forgotten.
Session: Engagement + Senior + Lifestyle Style: Various Location: All over the United States
I have been lucky enough to travel around the country and love the variety of photographing both couples and individuals. Going to new cities, having different landscapes, and having a wide variety of people to photograph is what keeps my job both interesting and fun!
Here is a collection of some of my favorite images from engagement, senior and lifestyle portrait sessions!
Marc & Seneda
Session: Wedding Style: romantic, classy, garden Location: Newport, Rhode Island
Glamour and style was brought to this outdoor ceremony and reception. The soft green and crème colors only enhanced this garden setting. Newport is a town overflowing with glamour and sophistication. I couldn’t imagine Seneda and Marc getting married anywhere else. The grand centerpieces and table-scapes made for a tent reception that was so glamorous you would have thought we were in a grand ballroom.
One of my favorite parts of photographing on the East Coast is the dramatic coastline. This gorgeous couple deserved nothing less than the epic coastline views just steps away from their romantic garden wedding.
Senior portrait sessions are a really fun time in a teen’s life to really make their personality shine and highlight some of their interests. Amanda is a gorgeous girl with a million dollar smile and a charming personality to match. Capturing her fun personality was easy!
Incorporating her stunning red prom dress and how she is always busy with sports like softball and basketball, was just a fun added bonus as we hopped from location to location around Madison.
Kristin and Alex’s wedding was the most laid-back and probably the shortest ceremony I have photographed. As their guests gathered underneath a big oak tree in the yard of this restored farm, the couple exchanged simple and sweet vows, a quick “I do” and kiss and they were married! After the ceremony guests were treated to beautiful rural Wisconsin farm views as the huge original red barn served as the perfect reception venue.
Vintage lace table cloths, blue mason jars, and gorgeous wild flowers were just a few of the details this stylish bride chose. Everything complimented the rustic barn setting, while adding a fun vintage flare. Rural Wisconsin charm doesn’t get any better than this!
Ashwanth & Christina
Session:Wedding Style: Bright, Colorful, Indian Location: Racine, Wisconsin
It's common to have a wedding that you have two different religions combined into one wedding day. Christina and Ashwanth mixed both and Indian and Western traditions beautifully for their wedding day in Wisconsin.
he bright and vibrant colors made this beautiful summer day such a fun celebration for their family and friends. The extra details like robes and parasols for the bride and her bridesmaids are just a couple examples of how the little details can add so much to your day.
I love it when couples choose a unique space that shows fits their personality while also being gorgeous. Who doesn’t like walls full of windows?! Anna and Derek kept the theme for their wedding simple and classic which complimented the clean lines of the Madison Library perfectly. The combination of modern and the traditional aspects of their wedding came together perfectly. Choosing to not do a “first look” made for the perfect image of Derek seeing his gorgeous bride for the first time at their ceremony.
Black and white with accents of gold go perfectly with the sleek modern gallery-type style of this venue. Another super fun wedding party and guests made for yet another perfect wedding!
Session: Wedding Inspiration Style: Romantic, Rustic, Vintage, Classic Location: All over the United States
I have been able to photograph so many fantastic weddings all over the US! From Massachusetts and New Jersey, to Wisconsin and Illinois, and Oregon and California just to name a few states. This collection of images is just a small set of my favorite images from all different kinds of weddings and the variety that I love to photograph.
Blending modern and hip with a rustic and outdoorsy style is something that I absolutely love to do! What really makes this lifestyle session work is not only the perfectly put together wardrobe, but the fact that you can imagine yourself in his shoes and wanting to look and be like him.
A men’s clothing brand can now highlight how to mix and match pieces and how to incorporate them into your every day life. Taking those pieces and putting them into real scenarios only makes it more desirable to potential clients and customers. Having a sweet, loveable dog with the handsome model doesn’t hurt either!
