John + Ali | A Cambodian Love Story

John + Ali's wedding day was nothing short of lovely. The two met in Cambodia serving as full time missionaries, Ali teaching in an international school and John working as the Director of Operations for Agape International Missions, an anti-human trafficking organization. Friends and family from all over the globe traveled to celebrate the two, and it was such a blast to be a part of. Their pastor from their Cambodian church was even able to officiate their big day. To the s

Behind the Scenes of Five Years of Marriage

It’s been five years since we said “I do”. I slipped into a white lace gown. You dressed up in a slim, gray suit. It rained that day, and I loved the excuse to wear my striped rain-boots. We cried when I walked down the aisle. And we had the best dance party after dinner I’ve ever been to. I fell asleep on our drive to our honeymoon, but I swear you never stopped smiling. We’ve celebrated a few anniversaries together, but I’ve been looking forward to this from day one. 5 year

Jordan + Hailey | Lake Orchard Farm Wedding

Within minutes of being around these two, you're bound to smile and laugh. They are kind and funny, and have the best stories to share from their twelve years of being together. Their relationship has covered time and distance, they've put in the work to be where they are today celebrating their wedding day with all their friends and family. Hailey was the winner of a portrait session I donated to a fundraising event hosted by one of my favorite local non-profits, Valley Cats

Christian + Jenee | Pamperin Park Winter Engagement Session

I had a blast with Christian and Jenee for their Pamperin Park winter engagement session. We had the most perfect weather we could ask for. There was freshly fallen snow, temperatures in the mid 30s, and the sun popped out to shine. Engagement sessions are some of my favorite things to photograph. It gives me the chance to get to know a couple before their big day, and likewise, it allows the couple to become more familiar with me. Cause lets be real, being photographed by a

Aaron + Kristin | Stevens Point Fall Wedding

Aaron and Kristin had such a beautiful fall wedding! The two first met through eHarmony. After messaging back and forth for a few weeks, Aaron finally asked her out so they could meet in person. So over coffee at the Little Red Mill, where they could enjoy conversation and the outdoors together, they had their first date! Followed by many, many more. "No matter what we do, from grocery shopping to kayaking, we just have fun together!" And now they are MARRIED! And I couldn't

Joe + Marissa | Green Bay Wedding

Joe and Marissa are MARRIED! What a beautiful celebration their wedding day was. Even though it poured in the morning, the weather lightened up just in time for clear skies the rest of the day. They had their first look at Marissa's mom's house, and photos with their wedding party in the big backyard beneath the willow tree. Sepia Chapel made for the perfect venue to host their ceremony and reception, and celebrate with the best of friends and family. It's always a favorite w

Tips to Help You Get the Best Wedding Day Photos

1) Utilize a Timeline. When I put together timelines for my couples, I anticipate the unexpected (makeup delays, members of the wedding party getting lost, working around rain, etc.). Sometimes things don't go as planned, and I plan for that so that regardless we can still capture beautiful moments and create a positive experience that will show in your photos. Making a plan for your day not only helps keep everyone on the same page, from your wedding party to your wedding ve

Rodney + Amber | Fox Hills Resort Wedding

What a perfect day with family and dear friends, even the rain held off until I snapped the very last shot! Rodney and Amber said 'I do' at the beautiful Fox Hills Resort, and I loved everything about this wedding! Amber looked nothing short of stunning. Rodney gifted his groomsmen the most unique and thoughtful gifts ever. I couldn't stop obsessing over the bouquets created by Ebb & Flow Flowers, and the wedding party was so much fun to celebrate with. This was one wedding f

Justin + Sarah | A New Year's Wedding

Every wedding I photograph is such a gift. And it's even a bit more special of a gift when it's for dear friends. When Justin first moved to Wisconsin a few years ago he started attending the same church as Karl and I, and the two quickly became good friends. The kind of friends that you just know will be in your life through all the years. I'm thankful my husband has a friend like Justin, and I'm even more thankful for the friend I gained in Sarah after the two started datin
