June 23rd 2018 it was finally their wedding day!! Cameron and Kayla planned their wedding at Noah's Event Venue in Madison Wisconsin. It's a beautiful venue with PERFECT lighting ;) We planned a first look for the bridesmaids, with Kayla's dad and finally Cameron and Kayla. They stood back to back and read the letters they wrote each other before turning around. The rest is history! They spent the rest of the rest of their wedding day with family and friends.

St. Christopher's Episcopal Church and South Shore Park Pavilion Wedding

Tim proposed with an exciting scavenger hunt with bottled notes that required a new cipher for each clue. The clues led them on a trip down memory lane of all the significant moments of their relationship and ended with Tim proposing at Pasadena City Hall. Tim and Danielle love spending time together walking their dog Misty, spending time outdoors hiking or riding bicycles together, and enjoy playing music together. They have also enjoyed fixing up our new house like  Chip and Joanna Gaines! I'm so excited that I was able to photograph Tim and Danielle's wedding day as they continue this journey of life together as newlyweds!

So I thought I would share something different for this styled shoot. This information is for any bride that wants a little help with wedding planning. I know you might think, "my budget is tight and won't allow for a planner" BUT there's different packages. Maybe you only need a day of coordinator. Here's some info from Ashely owner of Midwestern Bride. Photos from our May styled shoot.

We met for a wellness profile, he signed up as a member, and we got him started on a program. We started talking daily via FB messenger and later text. He always said the sweetest things and truly knocked me off my feet. If you ask him, it was hard work getting me to open up to him. He was constantly finding ways to get into my world; he even offered to be my golfing partner as I was still learning how to golf (an activity we love doing together now). When I met with him to "check in" on how his program was going, he asked me to dinner. We went to dinner that week and ended up at the same wedding a week later where we danced the night away. We made it official on 10/9/16. Fast forward 363 days and Nick completely shocked me with the proposal. He had gotten the ring weeks before, had gotten permission from my parents, showed his family the ring, and planned a surprise engagement with my closest friends and family. Little did I know, he had every detail planned out and as we arrived, he had the garage door opener, opened the garage, and out walked 20 of our closest friends and family -- cameras and phones in hand. He proposed in the very spot of our first kiss with our song playing in the background, just 2 days before our official one-year anniversary. He had every single detail planned out. It was truly a surprise and a beautiful moment.

When we planned a beach extended family session we didn't expect fog to roll in just as we started the session. BUT I love how the fog softened the background. The Menges family organized this session to document their family, at a place they love before Mike, Stephanie and the boys move to Arizona. We all enjoyed having Stephanie as a teacher in the community and I will miss taking photos of the boys... maybe this means I should travel to AZ during Winter for their session. ;)

Alexis and Andrew met using a popular online dating website and had their first date on New Year's Eve (Dec 2014). They rang in the New Year at a place called Will's Northwoods Inn, it's one of very few Green Bay Packer establishments in the heart of Chicago. Alexis and Andrew both grew up in NE Wisconsin and joke that it took moving to Chicago to meet each other. I recently photographed their wedding in Chicago and I can't wait for the wedding in May at Badger State Brewing.

My cousin Sam had her FOURTH and final girl ! Today was suppose to be Eleanor's birthday, but the doctor decided Monday Eleanor needed to be delivered early. When I arrived to the hospital, thinking that I was going to take photos after the c-section. That changed and I was allowed in the operating room!! GAHHH!!! You guys... I love to photograph birth's. I personally think these photos are more important then newborn sessions. BUT...I'm also not a newborn photographer. I love that I can provide mom and dad photos, so dad can focus on being there for mom. 

Eleanor was born on her Great-Grandma Helen's birthday. She was at least 1 lb bigger then all of her sisters. I stayed after the birth to watch Eleanor's 3 big sisters see her for the first time. They were all so excited to see baby!
