Sending out galleries has me wondering how I have not shared some of these images with you yet! Becca and Seth got married late August and their day was a stunner! A big hoorah with friends and fam to celebrate these high school sweethearts before they moved out to Nashville! Can’t wait to get this one on the blog! Head to stories for more of this vibrant summer day! 🌸☀️🌱
We leave in TWO weeks! Just 14 days. So where are we at? Well we didn’t get nearly as far in our camper renovation as we would have liked this fall 🛠. We will have to continue our project on the road, wah wah. I’m working double overtime (read 18-20 hour days) to send out remaining weddings and sessions before we leave. As well as helping plan a last minute style shoot in just a week’s time, as well as manage our renovation from afar while Alex is busy on-site putting it all back together for us. We have no experience and very few tools and just one man physically on deck. So props to Alex for still working away in the cold everyday trying to get this thing in a liveable condition! We will be happy once we get the kitchen cabinets and new lights in, the rest of finishing touches we can do on the road. We are both very much winging and googling our way through this renovation and it’ll be that much more rewarding if we actually pull it off🤞🏻! Other not so little things would be actually getting ourselves set for months on the road, move out of Alex’s parents and pack up our few belongings; prioritize what we need. Trade in my car. Celebrate Thanksgiving without worrying about A-Z. I was at a family event yesterday and I’m pretty sure I looked like I’ve been locked inside a cave for the past month who managed to crawl her way out and escape (which is actually pretty accurate to how I feel anytime I leave the house now). It’s so easy to become a workaholic when you work for yourself, the most magic comes when you push yourself and follow that inspiration or idea. It’s hard to know where to draw your own line when you love what’s on both sides. I keep telling myself it’s just a couple more weeks. That this is all MY doing, all things I took on. And while it is all adding up right now in this very moment, these are all things I am grateful for. I know it will all fall into place soon - and when it does it will be so so magical ✨The storm before the calm! Thank you everyone for following along in our messy road! We’ll try to do a video tour of our progress sometime soon!
Snuck in one last engagement session before we hit the road! When a wedding planner is getting married you know it will be 😍😍 I immediately recognized Kelsie through @elevate.events (brides if you need help planning your wedding these girls have got you covered)! It unexpectedly decided to snow the night before which I think made for an even more romantic morning. The first snowfall of the year👏🏻 We ended at the soccer fields where they met 10 years ago and hold so many precious memories (I absolutely adored this sentimental idea)! We froze our tooshies off the entire morning but these two were such great sports, they are also so sweet and took us out for hot chocolate and breakfast afterwards to warm up ☕️🙌🏻 The beeest hot chocolate. Kelsie and Jason thanks for inviting me to be a part of your story and I cannot wait for the big day! More of these cuties over in stories!
I’m all about bouquets that serve double purpose! 🙌🏻🌿A sure way to keep that floral budget in line is to reuse your bouquets as the head table centerpieces. Adds a floral wow factor without added cost 👍🏻 And for a **3rd** purpose, check out how your bouquet can still live on long after your special day - even making its way into your home decor 😍 Obsessed! . .

Who says your #bridetribe has to be just the ladies? Just one color? Just one style? Love when couples forego those silly wedding rules and do whatever their hearts desire 🙌🏻The result always seems to be pure #joy 💕
Was it just me or did today feel like the Monday-ist of Mondays 😴 Can’t we just always have #daylightsavings ? I mean who’s even making this rule. Over here reminiscing on beautiful long summer days like this one✨.
Loving these tones. I actually love so many different photography styles between dark & moody to light & airy. Both documentary and fine art photography. I try to avoid trends and keep to my own artistic style. It’s actually super hard to describe my approach to someone else, so I always love hearing other people’s takes on it! I think the best way I can describe my thought process is that I like to mix the idea of “natural” meets “fairytale.” I want my images to evoke the feeling of a whimsy, romantic, bright and joy-filled fairytale. But also be filled with natural and real moments that are not overly posed or sought out. Dreamy yet down to earth at the same time. . . Just for funsies, what words comes to your mind? Leave em below!✨
It’s been a while since I’ve done a #styleshoot ! I wasn’t really planning on doing one of these for a while due to our off season traveling (and because they are actually tons of work to plan- like planning a wedding!) But when one of your fav venues @theenchantedbarn asks you to be a part, it’s an obvious yess🙌🏻 SO excited for this collaboration opportunity the end of this month and to share with you some more wedding inspiration before we hit the road! 🤞🏻crossing fingers the weather is nothing like it is here today - Brr!!! (Who else is hiding out with a million blankets?!) . . As seen in @wisconsinbride Styling: @elevate.events Calligraphy: @saffronavenue Flowers: @madisonweddingflowers
Emily & Dustin's engagement session was #adventure on a new level! We were hiking through 8 inch water, crossing streams, climbing over huge boulders, it was a slippery wet jungle gym and definitely the most adventurous session I've been a part of. Love my couples who aren't afraid to get down and dirty and be immersed in nature! I ended up getting a little too immersed in nature🙃🌱. We were crossing a stream when I slipped and fell and found myself - and my cameras - completely submerged in the water. Eek! Luckily the SD cards made it through and I can still share these beautiful photos with you all today!😅Such a fun time with these two, I’d do it again in a heartbeat 💕Head to stories for more sneak peeks!
