A perfect day in the city for a wedding, spent the afternoon wandering the neighborhood with Katie, Dan and their wedding party - a beautiful ceremony at sunset followed by a wonderful meal, beautiful speeches and an epic dance party.
I genuinely love my job and enjoy documenting two people who love each other exchange vows in front of their loved ones. I am thankful for the couples who give me full creative freedom, who trust me to document them as them and Adam and Rob did just that. On October 22nd, 2016 I got to document Adam and Rob get ready in their amazing apartment, walk around the grounds in which they live as well as were getting married in, then exchange their vows in a perfect chapel by a wonderful woman who spoke of love and community and made basically everyone cry followed by a celebration of all things Adam and Rob -- It was a perfect day to be apart of as well as photograph. Adam and Rob, I love you both, I am so beyond happy that you two have found each other and thank you for asking me to document your wedding.
I am a huge fan of weddings in 2 parts and this is exactly what Laura and Josh did. Months ago I skyped with these two about their upcoming wedding plans, at the time it was set for everything on Saturday but as their plans formed they called to ask if I was also available the friday before -- They wanted to have a small ceremony with immediate family and have a big party the following day with everyone in their lives -- a wonderful way to make the one day last a little longer and a chance to do two photoshoots! So today I will blog about their first day and next weekÂ I'll have their party up.
Their story in Laura's words: "Josh was out to dinner meeting his best friend's new boyfriend. This boyfriend was doing a stand up comedy show at the bar next door so they all met for dinner first. Laura was their server. Josh flirted. So did Laura. At the end of the meal, Josh left a note for Laura in the bill telling her about the comedy show and inviting her to join for a drink after work.
At the end of her shift, Laura couldn't decide whether or not to go - because that's weird, right?! She started walking over but then changed her mind and started walking away and then back and forth a couple of times...all in front of the wall of windows of the restaurant where a co-worker was inside prodding her to go. Finally Laura stepped inside to find that no one was there! But a beer was needed after all that deliberation. A creepy old man at the bar started attempting a chat when all of the sudden people started pouring out of the back room (previously unknown to Laura) where the comedy show had taken place. And sure enough Josh was there to save Laura from the old creeper at the bar!"
These two are wonderful, I've had the opportunity to spend some time with them through their wedding planning process and I am so happy to have been apart of their wedding weekend.
Years ago Sammy moved to the Milwaukee area to join the photography team at Kohl's Studio where Melissa was already a stylist, they started out as coworkers, soon became best friends but then one dinner date cooking Kung pao chicken together led to an amazing love. These two own a house outside of Milwaukee and made it their own with an incredible kitchen and a every girls dream closet.
On Thursday, June 18th these two met at Klode Park on the shores of Lake Michigan withÂ their immediate family members and exchanged vows in 25 MPH winds -- an epic, wonderful and intimate ceremony and I am so thankful to have been apart of it. On Saturday, June 20th we all got together again with their extended family for an amazing meal and celebration. Â
