"Ryan & I met at a friend's house warming party we clicked right away and spent the night talking and hanging out. It took my 6 months to realize I had my best friend and soul mate right in front of me!! That was over 10 years ago and everyday I love him more! There is something to be said about being with someone that makes you want to be a better you and that is how we feel about each other. We are looking forward to all life's journeys especially since we both love to travel and spending every day with the person that truly completes you!"

Manitowoc Wedding Photographers | Megan and Jacob Engagement Photos

Megan and Jacob meet each other in grade school and even played on the same soccer team when he was in 7th grade and she was in 8th. Megan said she was terrible and Jacob's dad was one of the coaches. But it wasn't until his junior year and her senior that they really started talking. Jacob sent a simple "Hey!" text and that's what started it all. They enjoy taking care of their pigs, chickens, farm cats, and dog Mocha. (Megan says:) I love that he's always been a hard worker and that he loves his job as a farmer; and although that means his schedule can be unpredictable and there are times when we barely get to see each other in summer, those nights when I can ride in the tractor with him are my favorite....... (Jacob says:) I love that she is willing to take care of all the animals and is not scared to get dirty. She deals with my busy schedule and when I'm not home she can take care of everything.

Door County Wedding Photographers Stone Harbor Resort | Mikaela & Mitch

Like Tim McGraw's song "Check Yes or No".. it started way back in third grade. Mitchell and Mikaela met in Mrs.Berg's third grade class where they missed recess because they had gotten in trouble. Through the years of childhood into the turbulent teenage years and onto adulthood they've learned so much from one another. How to be patient, how to be kind, how to be generous, and ever loving in times of struggle. Mitchell and Mikki truly are the happiest and best selves when they're together, one team instead of two separate individuals. The greatest example of their love can be seen through their daughter's little giggle and bright smile. Take a look at this gorgeous Stone Harbor Resort wedding in Door County Wisconsin.

Mandy and Steve got married at Beautiful Savior Lutheran Church in Green Bay WI on May 20th. It was important for Steve's family that he get married in his Military Dress Uniform.

Mandy and Steve's first look was one of my favorites! Ladies if you want a true reaction from your fiance when he sees you in your wedding dress for the first time, consider adding a first look into your wedding timeline.

Want to see life with 5 children under 5 ? Look at the Hendricks family. Marni and Brian were one of my first clients 6 years ago for their maternity session with McKenna. In the last 6 years I've tried to plan a couples date night so we can go out for sushi and martini's but every time I try to plan something... Marni was pregnant..again! I've even suggested sneaking wine in the hospital after she delivered one of the babies, because I knew within 6 weeks she'd probably be pregnant again.

I had so much fun at Becky and Mike's Door County beach engagement session! 

Mike and Becky found each other on an online dating website. After talking for about 1 week,  they met at a small, hole in the wall craft beer bar with board games. Becky & Mike talked effortlessly and had wonderful time. Becky loves Mike's kindness, selflessness, love of traveling, and how well he fit in with her family from the start. Mike loves Becky's kindness, humor, compassion, and cooking. :) 

I can't wait photograph Becky & Mike's Door County wedding at Gordon Lodge in Baileys Harbor.

Doctors Park Milwaukee Engagement Photos | Tara & Zack

Soooo many amazing photos from Tara and Zack's Milwaukee engagement session at Doctors Park! I had the hardest time deciding the photos to share on this blog post so ... I'm over sharing!

Zack and Tara met at the University of Wisconsin - Madison. They met at a friend's birthday dinner and the very next day they both went on the same trip to Chicago through an accounting organization. Zack and Tara found out that they were both trying to get into the same masters of accountancy program. Over the next several months while Zack and Tara were getting to know each other, Tara woo-ed him with her baking abilities. They hung out constantly, but never talked about dating until a few months later.  Zack said "Would you consider us dating?" and Tara replied "yeah" and that was that. They spent then next two years in all the same accounting classes and coincidentally got offers to intern at the same accounting firm in Chicago. Now they have been working at that same firm for almost two and a half years together.
