I have some catching up to do on the blog and today I’d like to share with you beautiful Morgan’s senior photos. Her session was split in two, the first part happened in the summer at her family’s vineyard and the second time we planned for the fall with some urban backgrounds. Morgan is stunning and very intuitive in front of the lens. She completely slayed both serious faces and smiley faces. She also has a great sense of style. I just loved working with her! Thanks for two great shoots Morgan! Have an amazing senior year!

Meet Emily and Olivia, they are twins and seniors at Sauk Prairie High School. We met twice this year for their senior pictures. The first session was in the summer when we had to brave the humidity and mosquitoes. And the other one in the fall when the colors were at their peak. Both sisters work at Devil’s Lake State Park so it was an easy and perfect choice for the location. We also captured a few family portraits at the same time. Emily and Olivia, it was so much fun hanging with you and I appreciate that you chose me to capture these special high school memories! Best of luck as you finish your senior year!

Kari and Aaron moved out of town a while ago and this year they invited me to their home in the country for fall family portraits. This was such a fun session!  Even the wind cooperated with us and calmed down when needed. Kari wanted to have photos on the tree lined driveway and a knoll that is now a pasture for their pet farm animals. I’ve done many family portraits with dogs but these were my first with a horse and a donkey! This was a little bit more challenging than dogs but we made it and I’m looking forward to see how these portraits will soon be beautifully displayed in their home. Thank you for having me!

Beautiful Lexie’s is on the blog this week. She is in her final year at Sauk Prairie High School and this was the third time I had a pleasure to have her in front of my lens, as well as the first time alone. We started her senior session by the river in Sauk City and then hopped in the car to drive to other fun locations that offered a nice variety of backdrops. I especially liked the train as a prop for photos! It was my first 🙂 Lexie, thank you so much for shooting these with me! Enjoy your senior year and good luck with your plans for the future!

Each year the Association of Fundraising Professionals honors individuals, groups, organizations and businesses who, through their hard work and dedication, have enhanced philanthropy, their communities and the world. National Philanthropy Day is a special day set aside in November to promote philanthropy and recognize people who are inspiring change through their significant impact. Last Friday I had an opportunity to document National Philanthropy Day Awards Luncheon held at Overture Center in Madison, an event which honored the greater Madison area’s top philanthropists, volunteers and professionals. Almost 400 people came to celebrate the inspiring power of philanthropy, make connections and be inspired by this year’s honorees who truly represent the generous spirit that makes Madison a better place to live and work. Below are some photos from that fun event, enjoy!

It’s fun to watch families grow and change over the years. I feel so grateful to so many of my clients who keep coming back and today I want to share with you Celia’s fall senior pictures. Her older two siblings are former high school senior clients. Now she is in her final year at Lodi High School so it was her turn for senior session. Celia is an artist and I’m in awe of her talent. It was great to get to know her and hear about her plans for college. I have no doubt she is off to do some pretty amazing things in her career. Best wishes to you, Celia! Below are just a few photos from her session, enjoy!

rainy day wedding portraits Madison WI

 

WEDDING CEREMONY: St. Thomas Aquinas Catholic Church, Middleton, WI

RECEPTION VENUE: Union South, Madison, WI

DJ: Midwest Sound DJ Entertainment, Madison WI

WEDDING GOWN: Vera’s House of Bridals, Madison, WI

MAKEUP: ANiU Salon & Spa, Middleton, WI

It’s time for Kate and Jeff’s Union South weeding photos on the blog today! It was a rainy Saturday in early October but even though the weather was somewhat gloomy – both bride and groom, as well as their wedding party and family, were full of smiles and joy. Everybody braved the elements and just went with the flow. The day started at Union South with some getting ready photos. Kate’s bridesmaids helped her look stunning and Jeff had his groomsmen help him with his finishing touches…

It started to sprinkle when we did the first look photos, and then it was raining pretty hard and got windy just in time for the portraits. We had some cute umbrellas ready just in case and they turned out to be very useful as well as great props for photos. Fortunately Union South has quite a few covered areas that offered great backdrops and some protection from the elements 🙂

Shooting in the rain is a challenge but we were up for it. I think it forces you to really work smart and get even more creative. How cute are these photos? Love all the happy smiles!

After rainy portraits it was time to drive to the church for the ceremony.

Congrats!

The skies cleared out just in time for the family portraits after the ceremony.

And before it started to rain again we had just enough dry time to stop at Owen Park for a few more bride and groom shots, this time without the umbrellas 🙂

When we got back to Union South for the reception the rain picked up again. Fortunately by then everybody was dry and safe and ready to party!

Working with Kate and Jeff has been a breeze and and I wish them the very best in all their years to come. Congrats to the newlyweds!!

I have some awesome downtown Madison senior pictures to share on the blog today! Sarah is in her senior year at Sauk Prairie High School but we drove to Madison for senior session and spent a couple of hours exploring State St and the State Capitol area for the best light and urban backdrops. Sarah is smart, full of great energy and absolutely stunning. She was also very natural in front of the camera and obviously easy to capture.  I didn’t need to give her much direction at all and at times it felt as if I was working with a professional model! I can’t thank Sarah enough for stepping in front of my lens and love the images we created that summer evening. You crushed it, Sarah! Enjoy your senior year and keep going after your dreams! I know you have what it takes to achieve them and inspire others along the way. Hope you all enjoy this post…

Edgewater-wedding-photos

CEREMONY: Hope Lutheran Church, McFarland, WI

RECEPTION: Edgewater Hotel, Madison, WI

I’m happy to present Kristen and Dave’s wedding photos to you today. The day started with the ceremony at Hope Lutheran Church in McFarland, WI and then we drove to Edgewater Hotel in Madison, where the reception was held.  Before the evening celebrations we had some time planned for bride and groom portraits. This was my first time shooting at that venue and I just loved the backdrops it offered! The State Capitol on one side and sweeping views of Lake Mendota on the other were just perfect for wedding portraits! Kristen and Dave, thank you for having me and I wish you all the best in all the years ahead!

It’s time for Kate and Jeff’s Downtown Madison engagement pictures on the blog today! They don’t live in Madison anymore but this is where they met and fell in love. No wonder the town has a special place in their hearts and this is where they wanted to have their engagement session (as well as the wedding this coming weekend!) We met downtown on a beautiful summer evening and started with some photos on the Square. We wandered around the State Capitol and captured some beautiful images. For our second leg of the shoot we headed to The Wisconsin Union terrace. It was an evening on a Saturday in July so the terrace was packed with people but  we were still able to find some peaceful spots for photos. Thanks so much for having me! Can’t wait to capture your vows and more this Saturday!
