Elegant Edgewater Wedding | Madison WI Wedding Photographer

Ted & Cheryl's wedding was a beautiful, elegant day, allbeit more than a little windy! Strong breezes forced us indoors for the ceremony and reception, but if you have to be stuck inside you can't beat the grand ballroom of the Edgewater, or it's SkyBar, with it's awesome views. And the sunset we got? Unbelieveable!

Beautiful Spring Wedding at The Chapel of the Archangels | Beaver Dam WI Wedding Photographer

Angela & Jason's Earth Day wedding at the Chapel of the Archangels in Beaver Dam had a thoughtful, modern vibe in a beautiful old restored church setting. The beautiful details where completely outshined by the connection they had with each other and their loved ones, and the laughter was contageous all day long.  

At the end of the night we had blast creating some artistic photos of the bridesmaids playing poker (you know, like you do at the end of your best friend's wedding), and took a few minutes to step outside for a night shot with the couple. 

Hands down a fantastic start to my wedding season <3

Engagement: Leah & Justin

From our first meeting I knew Leah, Justin and I were going to get on famously. We spent 4 hours at that first meeting talking about mutual love of gardens, geekiness, this awesome city of Madison, and adorable cat antics. It could have easily gone on longer. 

And the engagement session? Was every bit as much fun. We visited the beautiful UW Arboretum last week on the perfect spring night, and took a beautiful walk together. These two radiate joy and love, for each other but also for everything around them. I'm so excited for their wedding day next month!

Rustic Winter Wedding at the Barn at Harvest Moon Pond

The weeks leading up to this January wedding at the Barn at Harvest Moon Pond in Poynette WI had been unseasonably warm, and then Saturday came and the windchill was -15. While the wind was howling outside, inside the barn was brimming with warmth and a lot of love.

Many of the more intimate venues in the Madison area don't have space for getting ready as well as both the ceremony and the reception, which is important for winter weddings. At Harvest Moon Pond the old hay loft of this barn has been converted to hold ceremonies, and two ready rooms downstairs for getting ready when the weather doesn't play nice.

And there are cool spaces inside the barn that make for beautiful portraits as well.

But we also braved the frigid temps and stepped out for the sunset, between the sun's warm glow and the sweet love that Russ & Tiff have for each other, you'd never believe it was -15 degrees outside!

All around, a beautiful wedding at a stunning location, with one of the loveliest (and toughest!) couples I've ever had the pleasure to work with.
