Christie and Tyler Engagement Preview

I don’t really have too much to write here! These two are so damn in love and it shows in every one of these images. I love that Tyler knew the only way he could come close to matching his beautiful fiancĂ© was to rock a tux. And rock it he did! I met Christie and Tyler by way of another image I took for the lovely Doug and Michelle. Christie got it touch and wanted her own kick-ass skyline […]

Jess and Jay’s Wedding Day

I am so excited to share these images form Jess and Jay’s awesome wedding day! I have known Jess for sometime. When I first started this business not-so-way-back-when she was there. She helped us make it happen. She worked the wedding shows and the shoot locations with equal grace. It was quite the honor when she asked me to capture her day. Every detail was perfect, every bridesmaid beautiful, and every groomsmen dapper. Days like these make me love being […]

Katy and Chris’s Notebook Adventure

You might never guess all these photos were taken within the same hour! Of course, if you live in Wisconsin you totally get it! It was so much fun to shoot Katy and Chris’s engagement session. Their love is unmatched and clearly they were destined to be together. We can’t wait to shoot the wedding in just over a month!

Just a little something something to hold you over 😉

Michelle and Doug Chicago Engagement

Man. Culling these images was tough. The love is real with these two. We had so much fun starting at Cindy’s Rooftop Bar at the Chicago Athletic Association Hotel. The balcony was wet but they didn’t care–so we made some rad images! A stroll through Millennium Park to take in the awesome skyline and a quick embrace before hailing an Uber 🙂 I wish their wedding were tomorrow!

The Story of Us

Here’s a little window into the journey of the sweetest couple becoming the sweetest family!

Rachel’s Final Maternity Session

The journey to becoming a parent is filled with so many real and raw emotions. We are so blessed to have had the opportunity to travel with these dear friends from the day they shared the big news that they were expecting. Rachel and Stefan, you are beautiful and so is your new baby girl.  Here are some of our faves from Rach’s final maternity session; full of excitement, laughter, and over-the-top gorgeousness!   This mama-to-be was beaming and radiating […]

Surf Milwaukee Winter

So last Sunday I was just wrapping up a maternity shoot and was driving home down Lincoln Memorial Drive when I saw them dashing to the shore. The air temperature was around 20 degrees Fahrenheit with a steady wind coming in off the lake. The sun was shining bright. One of those deceitful days that looks amazingly warm but in reality is unashamedly cold. But why let a little bitter air stop you–this is Wisconsin, damn it! Cold is what […]

This Guy

Tonight I headed out with my son to go take some “awesomes”. That’s what he calls pictures. Whenever I come home from a sunrise shoot, he is awake and ready for Dada. I put the SD card in the iMac and pull ’em up. He is one of my biggest fans so he always says “Oooooooh! Awesome Dada.” After we had enough of the rain and needed to get out, I asked him if he wanted to go take pictures […]

Joshua and Bao

At Hawk’s View Golf Club in Lake Geneva, WI, Josh and Bao sealed their forever. The love these two have for one another is palpable. Our team, along with everyone else witnessing their union, had misty eyes not only from the incredibly thoughtful vows and speeches but because these two are just so easy on the eyes. Congrats to the amazing couple & thank you for choosing us to be a part of your day!
