Getting settled back into routine this Monday morning, reading over bridal questionnaires for upcoming May weddings and a venue walkthrough tonight and just getting so jazzed! I usually have a pretty good idea what a wedding will be like months in advance, either through initial convos with the bride and groom or the engagement session or keeping up throughout the year with my couples. But it’s not until I receive the questionnaire back a couple weeks out that I **really** get to hear all that has been planned, all the smaller details (that excite me so much!), the songs that will be played and the other vendors that will be contributing, and most importantly, the love story behind all the wedding details. My 2019 wedding season kicks off in just TWO weeks, who’s excited to see all the new pretty?
5 months | 11 states | 12,000 miles | We are back HOME sweet home🐄#happyeaster everyone! . . PC: @stefaniebendt #roadtrip #lifeonwheels #fulltimervers
This one’s for the groom. Whether he’s donning black, navy, gray, or neutral...#Greenery is a great (natural!) option for the more subtle groom. And if you’re looking for something even more subdued choose greens that are subdued in color - like olive leaf or eucalyptus🌿. As seen on @wisconsinbride
I don’t think I’ll ever tire photographing couples. I’ve dappled with landscapes, interiors, solo headshots, families, babies. I love photographing many many things. But there’s something about the simple romance between two people from different walks of life, that find eachother and simultaneously decide “hey, I like you. I choose to spend my days with you.” It’s a fascinating concept really. And being around people so giddy in love all the time, it keeps me always seeing the good, always inspired ♡
We’re back where the green grass grows🌿((And it is really starting to sink in that we’ll be home in just 6 days! Eeek!)) My heart is so full from this trip. It has completely opened up my eyes to new worlds and sights and cultures - all in our own country! And the other cool thing is that it simultaneously also made me really appreciate Wisconsin, where Alex and I have lived all the years of our life. Sure we don’t have mountains and oceans and people don’t really seek us out on the map, but we have a really special thing going on here too. And it takes being gone for a while to understand that fully. I am excited to get to come back to the other half of my life that I love so much - Shooting weddings and being creative and serving others. I told Alex a couple days ago “it’s so weird our adventure is over!” and then he reminded me that our adventure is never over🙃. We’ll be back in our homestate but we’ll never stop exploring our earth and creating a life of adventure. I cannot wait for each and every wedding this coming summer (hi 2019 couples!👋🏻) It’s gonna be one heck of a beautiful summer in the Midwest. Round 2 lets do this!👊🏻
Fun fact. This isn’t snow and it isn’t sand. It’s actually gypsum (ya know the stuff they use to make drywall with?) I seriously am in love with the desert and all it’s little quirks!
5 months living in our tiny home on wheels (and counting)! For those that don’t know, we didn’t complete our renovations in time for our big trip but we somehow managed to live without a kitchen or sink or bathroom. (Literally just had a bed to sleep in, a mini fridge, and two TVs!)🌵🚐💨We are on our way back home to Wisconsin now and are excited to get back into photographing weddings and fixing our camper up into an actual living space 🛠We’ll be going slow and hitting up quite a few stops yet along the way. We’re kicking it off with @whitesandsnps today (Wait til you all see this place👀) follow along in stories✌🏻
Hello & happy weekend! Just poppin in quick to show my face and say hello to anyone new☺️. We are on our way back home after spending months on the road exploring the southwest. One question we get asked a lot is “do you plan on living in that thing when you’re back home in Wisconsin?” YES! We’re not kidding when we say our little camper on wheels is our home 💕We are excited to explore parts of our home state that we haven’t yet seen, and post up lakeside most of the summer (turns out in Wisconsin nearly every campground is on a lake - we’re not complaining🏖👙) I have taken so many pictures of our 5 month trip I don’t even know what to do with myself - the desert is nothing like Wisconsin so every new scene has been so fascinating. I’ll most likely be breaking up our trip and blogging the highlights. For sure a few highlights have been the crazy hikes we’ve done and that pushed us completely out of our limits (I started this trip with an intense phobia of heights but now I’m kinda sorta drawn to it) and the new National Parks we’ve visited, including Joshua Tree & Saguaro. I could hunt for the prettiest ones 🌵🌵and take pictures for days (ask Alex 😊) Also shout out to Alex who took this pic during a session, it’s so rare I’m in the spotlight💕 We’re booking 2020 and still have some dates open! If you’d love to work with us come say hello! 👋🏻
Had so much fun wandering around Phoenix AZ with these two! We ate some serious good food for like 3 days straight (I’ll be craving the PBJ + sriracha burger @rehabburgertherapy until we can get it again 🤤). More of these cuties to come!☀️🌵💕
