Headed into the weekend like 🙌 We are taking (much needed) stay-cation days to get outside from our computer screens.⠀ 1️⃣ First up? Golfing! Ben has wanted to go for months and now we’re finally making it happen!⠀ 2️⃣ Next up is a day trip to La Crosse, WI to visit the Shrine of Our Lady of Guadeloupe. It was a road trip together there three years ago that confirmed for me that I “like-liked” Ben but it wouldn’t be for a month after that until he asked me out. (Ps. 🙏 if you had any prayer requests comment/DM us and we will offer them up at the shrine)⠀ 3️⃣ Double-date night with our friends (and her Peruvian husband and chef extraordinaire is cooking a dish from his home country called Lomo Saltado 👏 👏 👏) ⠀ 4️⃣Celebrating the wonderful men in our family who are fathers, grandfathers, and god fathers.⠀ 👇 ⠀ Share with us how you’re spending your weekend and your fave song we should jam out to on our road trip to Wisconsin!
Do you remember the first time you saw a photo of your mom’s wedding dress from the 80s/90s and giggled at how big the sleeves were?! We do! And we L-O-V-E thinking about our own kids one day sitting on our laps as we flip through our wedding album while they gaze at each detail and see how the styles changed over the years.⠀ •⠀ It’s one of the reasons we believe in making time within your wedding day to capture all of the details that would otherwise go forgotten like your shoes, your jewelry, the invitation suite, all three rings together.⠀ •⠀ Here’s to hoping that thanks to Pinterest they don’t giggle at us and instead with their toothless grins and squeaky voices chime in to say, “Wow! Mom and dad you two look beautiful!” 💕
☀️ This ray of sunshine is officially done with senior year! 🎓 Molly’s senior session gave me #AllTheFeels because...⠀ 1️⃣⠀ I’ve literally watched this girl grow up to be the passionate and bright woman that she is. I can’t believe how fast the years flew by but am so overwhelmingly proud of her and all of her hard work. 2️⃣⠀ While Ben and I are most known for shooting weddings and engagements these days, senior pictures were where it all began for me. They are the soft spot in my heart because it was through taking senior pictures of my friends and their siblings that my photography dreams and business became a reality. We are so grateful for all of the people we’ve been able to serve over the years. You all bring so much joy into our lives and we are honored to reflect that joy back to you in images for each season of life. Y’all are the best!
Who else loves Pinterest? 🙋♀️ When it comes to wedding planning, Pinterest can be either your BFF or your frenemy.⠀ •⠀ Before you get sucked into the Pinterest rabbit hole (after all they say that 1 Pinterest minute = 15 real minutes 😉) go in with a STRATEGY to avoid the overwhelm and instead keep you focused and inspired! Get “Pin”-tentional, if you will with these THREE tips below. ⠀ 1️⃣⠀ COLOR THEME:⠀ Pinterest was most helpful once we had a color palette decided and helped us visualize exactly what we wanted. You didn’t know there could be so many varieties of navy suits, but TRUST ME there are! Gray suits with navy ties, black suits with blue ties, navy suit, navy tux with black lapel...Seeing images of all these different combos made our decision so much easier. ⠀ 2️⃣⠀ WEDDING DRESS INSPIRATION 👗⠀ None of the dresses I pinned over the years ended up being exactly “the one” with my body type or budget but my dream dress board revealed a pattern. I realized that I love lace across the neckline and flowy skirts that add beautiful movement with every twirl. Focusing in on these aspects and showing examples to my bridal consultant gave them enough of a guideline and flexibility to help me find the ONE that I said YES to!⠀ 3️⃣⠀ WEDDING FLORALS 💐⠀ This was a game changer because I barely know the names of any kind of floral or greenery (much less pronounce it properly). And let’s face it, going through a binder of photos at a shop is straight up daunting and wasnt a good use of time or energy. Our florist looked at my Pinterest floral board to understand our overall style and then made recommendations incorporated our color palette and adjusted what wasn’t in season. 🎉 NOW GO GET EM, SWEET BRIDE & HAPPY PINNING! 📍 Share with us ways that images or Pinterest have helped inspire the vision for your own wedding 👇
Happy FRI•YAY! 🎉 We are gearing up for our favorite kind of weekend ahead! We can’t wait for tonight’s senior session + tomorrow’s wedding + getting sneak peaks from this week’s engagement sessions out to all these happy couples!⠀ •⠀ We are so thankful for all of you who share your heart and lives with us! YOU give US such a beautiful opportunity to serve others and to spend time together as husband and wife. It fills up our hearts in so many ways!⠀ •⠀ Tell us what kind of weekend fills your heart! 👇
Dipping back into the work week but wishing it was still the weekend - who is with us?! • But knowing it is already Tuesday means we are THAT much closer to getting back to capturing more sweet couples in love and dancing the night away on the dance floor. All the praise hands for it finally being wedding season 🙌
Hey, fellas 👋 Groom Pro Tip: Practice tying your bow tie BEFORE the wedding day⠀ •⠀ It will give you more confidence that you are going to be looking SHARP when you see your beautiful bride AND it will help you avoid stress watching YouTube videos that morning. ⠀ •⠀ If you wanna REALLY earn some brownie points...practice tying a bow tie a few weeks before the wedding and then take your fiancée out on a date to celebrate in style. 👌
Give yourself grace when wedding planning starts to feel like a cha-cha 💃 Sometimes you take a few steps forwards in the process and sometimes it feels like you’re moving few steps back... but that doesn’t mean you can’t have fun throughout the whole process! Enjoy every minute of this crazy, beautiful dance that is leading you to the greatest encore of all: marriage.
