We were having a fire, listening to country music one Friday night and he told me his grandparents got us a gift. He left and returned with a wooden sign that said “The Skervens: Trevor & Jena". He said you might think this is a little weird as he handed it to me. I stared at it, slightly confused and started to say, “yeah, a little…” He said, “well it might be because of this…” and he pulled out the ring! I was so surprised.

"We met at a bar downtown in Milwaukee (we always laugh about this) and from there Thomas had me put my phone number in his phone! The next morning, not really even thinking about the prior night, he had friend requested me on FB. I saw that we both studied mathematics in school so I knew we would click right away. Thomas and I went to Cheesecake Factory for our first date.  I was so nervous that I let my cranberry vodka drink pretty much turn into water, the ice melted. From there, everything is history! We did long distance while I finished my senior year of school.  Once I graduated from Marquette I got a job in Madison and moved there! We didn't move in together until about a year later, since then it has been wonderful. We have dated for almost 6 years and decided this year was the perfect time to get engaged and then get married!"

"Chris and I met at Camp LuWiSoMo during a winter church retreat in January 2013. While we talked and got to know each other a bit, nothing came of our newfound friendship besides exchanging phone numbers. As the weeks passed, we kept bumping into each other at Calvary Lutheran Church in Madison, WI. This eventually lead to walking to church together, as our apartments in Madison were near by. Our first official date consisted of riding bikes and playing catch at a nearby park. We shared stories, giggles, and our love for being outside. As the dates continued, we also continued sharing our time together outdoors--biking, rollerblading, downhill and cross-country skiing, and eventually camping and hiking. We still love to do these activities together, and have since included more fishing (per Chris), more running (per Emily), and kayaking."

"We both knew that this was something special from the start.  He literally loves me unconditionally. He makes me a better person and he is my other half. When Michael proposed, obviously I said yes. Unfortunately, I sort of knew it was coming as I had picked out the ring myself and knew where it was “hidden.” I’d check the hiding spot everyday to see if it was still there or if Michael had moved it for the sake of a proposal. We’d always joked about putting the ring in food as that is something we really bond over (specifically tacos and ice cream) and I suppose I had a hunch that he would actually do it. One day, I was sitting on the couch, watching Netflix when he walked out of the bedroom with a bag of peanut butter M&M’s. As those are my favorite, he poured a few in my hand and out popped the ring! I had to ask if he was serious a few times over and finish chewing as PB M&M’s are high on my priority list. I sort of stared at him for a few moments as he smirked and then finally got down on one knee. It was perfect, simple, romantic, and totally us. We aren’t super flashy or fancy people so doing it in the comfort of our 1st home together over a bag of my favorite candy was absolutely perfect. I couldn’t have asked for a better proposal." - Alli

In July I photographed baby Brody, he was only 6 hours old! Heather looked amazing, like always and Kevin was so excited to be a daddy. Fast forward 4 weeks when I photographed Brody's newborn session... it's amazing how fast they grow and change in only one month. 

Brody was born at Aurora Hospital in Two Rivers weighing 8lbs 3 oz. He had the biggest hands I've photographed for a newborn. Perfect for football and wrestling ;)

The sweetest moment from Katy and Nick's Oshkosh wedding was a surprise letter Nick wrote on the back of a photo. He wrote this letter to his future bride in 2012, then framed the photo. Over the last 5 years Katy had no idea! Here's what he wrote... 

"Dear My Sweetest Love,

I'm sure you will never see this because who honestly looks at the back of a photo in a frame, but that's the point. Today is August 28th 2012. 4 days before you leave to go back to Eau Claire for your Junior year. You're still undecided with what you want to finish in but I know you will choose the right thing either way. I don't know when you will see this... 3 days, 3 years or 30 years but some day you will see this. Maybe on our wedding day.. I know it will come because you are the one for me. I love you so much, nothing has been the same since I met you. In a good way. You truly are the love of my life. I can't wait to spend the rest of my life with you. I love you. 

Forever and Always, Nick"

I love this family so much! I'm so thankful they schedule a last minute 6 month session for Lincoln.  In April 2016 I photographed their wedding, September 2016 I revealed to Kelli and Jay they were having BOY !  In January 2017 I photographed Lincoln's newborn session shortly after Kelli was released from the hospital. It was also the day Jay shaved her hair off. I'm so thankful that Kelli and Jay continue to let me document the important moments of their life and family.
