We had Brooke & Mike’s rainy Wisconsin maternity photos planned for no less than three times, but as Mother Nature has been having her own say this spring it’s been a bit difficult to predict when and where it’s going to be raining!  It seems like endless pop up showers for the past month!  So, we were rained out twice and knew that the day of this session that we could be in for more rain, and guess what there was!  But, sometimes rain doesn’t mean that you have to run for cover, it means you end up with beautiful, romantic images.

I first photographed these two for their snowy engagement session about four years ago this coming winter.  They had just gotten engaged and we set out for a session filled with snow, hot cider and snuggling.  Little did we know that it would end up a full blow blizzard near the end of the session.  We ended up finishing their portraits that spring just as the blossoms were bursting.  Later that summer, just about three years ago they were married at an orchard just south of Eau Claire.   Let me tell you that these two are THE SWEETEST couple.  It was such a treat to be able to photograph them in this sweet season of life right before they welcome a sweet baby into their family.

I’m so happy for you both and thankful I was able to photograph these for you!

The waves lapping at the edge of Lake Como, rose petals scattered along the aisle and the wind blowing just slighting off of the lake made for an absolutely amazing summer wedding in Bloomer, WI.  For over a year Darian and Wes had been planning this day.  So much love and hard work put into a day that happened to take place just steps from their own home right in town.

Darian & Wes were originally introduced because Darian wanted to learn how to box.  See, Darian had a punching bag in her basement and really had no idea how to get started using it correctly and someone had recommended she get in touch with Wes.  Wes happened to have done a bit of fighting publicly and locally over the past few years knew just what to do after that friend made the introductions.  The next thing Wes knew he was giving Darian boxing lessons, but it wasn’t until awhile after when he texted Darian randomly to ask how boxing was that he knew his intentions were to really see if he could ask her out.

After that text message, these two were pretty much inseparable after that moment and as of this past Saturday they said their handwritten vows on the banks of the lake just steps from their own home.  It was beautiful, touching and of course, humorous if you know anything about these two.

I’m so glad we could celebrate right along side of you, and wish you many years of love & happiness!

I didn’t meet Amber & Glenn officially until the day of their spring Big Falls engagement session.   When you live two hours from where you’re having your wedding, sometimes it’s just easier to Skype!  How I love technology because although we didn’t meet in person, we had met online.   Which brings me to how Amber & Glenn met… online!

Amber & Glenn ended up meeting each other online and as it so happens when they went on their first date they decided to meet for coffee one morning which turned into lunch, a stroll through a park and six hours later (you read that right… 6 hours later) they knew that something just clicked.  That there was something there.  Though they both agree that the second date was more awkward because they both wondered that after such an amazing first date if they would have anything more to talk about…. here they are now.

Just before Christmas and after Amber had graduated nursing school Glenn brought out an ornament in a box.  Amber assumed that since she had just graduated nursing school that it was an ornament related to her amazing accomplishment.  But it really was a ring shaped ornament and right then and there he proposed to Amber.

We had a ton of fun exploring around Beaver Creek Reserve and Big Falls, despite the spring mosquitoes having a good go at us all night long the light was just so good and these two are just so incredible! These two are planning the sweetest garden fete, and will be married in just a few short months!

Putnam Park Engagement Photos

Back in August of 2013, Bailey, a sophomore at UW-Eau Claire had volunteered to help the freshman on move-in day at campus.  Little did he know that the first person he met that day, he would marry.  See, she was the first person he saw and he thought she was the most beautiful woman he had ever seen.  Bailey helped Jenna move in and well, things just fell into place after that.

Bailey proposed to Jenna by asking her to be ready for a date by 5:00 pm.  See he had planned on reliving some of their favorite dates.  They started out at the budget theater in Eau Claire, then a concert at The Cabin on campus (where they used to go when neither of them had cars in college) and then they walked over to Putnam Park… just steps behind where they met for the very first time.  That is where Bailey asked Jenna the most important question – right under the stars on a little ridge above the river.

These two love movies – whether at home or at the movie theater but you might also catch them at their favorite restaurant, a coffee shop or out for a walk.  And, these two have some big news!  Both of them just graduated from UW-Eau Claire and Bailey accepted a job in Oshkosh as a high-school math teacher.  So, they’ll be spending the summer planning their wedding and exploring a new city together hand-in-hand.

I enjoyed my time with these two so very much and I cannot wait to document their day next June at Lake Wissota Golf Course… almost a year to the date that we took these photos at Putnam Park where Bailey proposed!

It was break room love at first sight for Brittany & Jim.  They worked in the same building, but on separate teams and separate sides at United Healthcare in Eau Claire.  He had seen her a few times, she had noticed him but it wasn’t until Jim noticed Brittany talking to someone from his team in the break room that he knew he just had to get Brittany’s number.  She noticed him slow down, but kept chatting with that friend and before they knew it Jim had taken the chance and given Brittany a call.

The afternoon of Brittany & Jim’s beautiful Eau Claire Golf & Country Club wedding was supposed to be stormy and rainy.  We knew right away that we had to be strategic about sneaking out for photos, and that the ceremony might just end up inside even though it was planned to be in a stunning spot overlooking the golf course.  Well, the storms parted (literally, we watched them on the radar) and they were able to walk down the aisle in-front of twenty of their closest family and friends.  Not many people can say that!  The clouds rolled in, and gave us moody skies but the breeze blew the storms right out of the way for them!

After the ceremony they greeted more of their friends and family for cocktail hour, a photobooth and some delicious eats put out by the amazing staff at the Eau Claire Golf & Country Club.

I’m so happy for these two, it was literally smiles and belly laughs the entire day!  Congratulations, and enjoy those sunny days in Nevada for your honeymoon!
