Amanda + Brandon | Grignon Mansion | Kaukauna, WI | Engagement Session Amanda and Brandon are absolute sweethearts. I am so excited for their wedding next April! These two actually were supposed to get married this April, but moved their wedding up a year pre-COVID-19. Talk about fate! Brandon picked out a classic, elegant diamond ring for Amanda to wear for the rest of forever. I'm so in love with the way it sparkles! These two were down for pretty much anything... including getting on the swings for old time's sake! Make sure you scroll down to the end of the blog post to see how much fun they had.

Mr + Mrs Gilbert | Backyard Barn Wedding | Waupaca, WI | Wisconsin Wedding Photography Alisha and Casey truly have a love for the storybooks. They met through mutual friends, and did long distance in between states, falling in love and finishing school at the same time. When it came time for Casey to propose, he got down on one knee and pulled out a Ring Pop before surprising Alisha with her real ring. Their ceremony at Martin Luther Church in Neenah was full of how much their love has impacted those around them and really brought their families together. It was beyond special to be a witness to their declarations to honor and love and cherish each other forever. Then we all headed out to a
Currently: August | Behind the Scenes Busting out all my maxi dresses before fall sets in... This one from Amazon is a new fav! Embracing no makeup days and messy hair. Recovering from getting a million bug bites and scratches from taking pictures in these plants! Working on engagement sessions, weddings, and mini sessions, oh my! Missing the sunflower field already. Watching Say Yes to the Dress while I edit. Drinking coffee from my favorite Honey and the Hive mug. Counting down to Rachel Allene's fall product launch tomorrow! Burning the midnight oil between editing, album design, and getting sessions ready for the blog! Listening to a lot of Maggie Rogers, Taylor Swift, and Mayday Parade
The Lasky's | Red Mill, Waupaca, WI | Lifestyle Family Session I have been taking Emmet's birthday photos since this little turkey turned two in 2017. Amanda and Greg are good friends of mine — Amanda and I used to work at Hardee's together, and once I opened my photography business back up, we collaborate as businesses and do a Portrait Day event usually once a year, except this year because COVID haha. You can see 2019's Spring Portrait Day pictures right here! We haven't been back to Red Mill since we did his two-year-old photos, and it was so nice to get back here to take photos again! Check out his three-year-old photos here, and his four-year-old photos right here. Keep scrolling to se
Mr + Mrs Finney | Old Coon Creek Inn, Beloit, WI | Wedding Photography Kristen and Sean are married! So... funny story, y'all! Two summers ago, back in 2018, my best friend got married at Old Coon Creek Inn. I was the maid of honor and thought, "Man, I wish I could come back here again and photograph a wedding for real." When I found out Kristen and Sean were getting married here, I knew that a silent prayer had been answered. Old Coon Creek Inn is run by the sweetest couple. Jill, one of the owners, pulled me aside and said, "You look familiar. Have you been here before?" She laughed once I explained the story and said to give my best to my best friend and her husband. It was also hot as he
