Family Photos :: Marshfield, Wisconsin Family Photography

Last week I met Amy, Dave and Eilee at Wildwood Park in Marshfield for a maternity/family photo session. The weather was perfect, sunny, not too hot.. it was a great morning for taking photos. We took some shots in the park and a few in the zoo. It was a great location for family photos and their family was fun to photograph!

Holgas from a Wedding and Engagement

Last week when I photographed the Iowa City wedding and my hometown engagement, I also shot a few photos with my Holga. I haven't really used my Holga for weddings or engagements before, but since both of these events has ample time, I thought I would try it out! I actually like the black and white ones the best, which surprises me. They seem more fitting for the moment. Hopefully in the next few weddings, I will be able to work in more shots with my Holga!

Katie + Matt's May Wedding :: Central Wisconsin Wedding Photography

I've been looking forward to photographing Katie and Matt's wedding for quite some time now. If their engagement session was any indication, I knew it would be a really fun wedding. I photographed their engagement session last July, and it was a blast! Their wedding definitely didn't disappoint, fun was had by all.

Katie and Matt got married in Stratford, Wisconsin at Zion Lutheran Church. After that we headed to the Shack and then the reception at Country Aire north of Stratford for dinner, dancing and the party! Katie put tons of cute touches into  the wedding. She had purple and zebra print umbrellas for the girls to be photographed with. During the Grand March, all the girls donned mustaches and football jerseys too! Congratulations Katie and Matt!  Thanks for having me be part of your big day!!

Some Old Holgas...

I finally got some of my Holga film developed. These are a little old, from when there was snow on the ground. Although, that maybe wasn't that long ago... I have a few other ones to share, but will wait for some of those.

Emily + Jake's Iowa Spring Wedding :: Iowa City, Iowa Wedding Photography

Last week I had the honor of photographing Emily and Jake's wedding in Iowa City and Coralville, Iowa. I was excited to go back to Iowa City, I went to school there and love being back. I also was really excited to photograph this wedding. Emily and Jake had a ton of great ideas for photos; from the mural on Iowa Avenue in Iowa City, to the comic book shop where Jake works and the Hotel Vetro lobby.

I met up with Emily as she was getting ready at home where the fun started. It was seriously really fun. We headed to downtown Iowa City and had a blast walking around the Ped Mall and taking photos in the perfect early spring weather. From downtown, we went to the ceremony and wedding site at North Ridge Park in Coralville. Emily and Jake had an outdoor wedding near the pond and then ate and danced the night away in the park pavilion. I really enjoyed photographing and being a part of their wedding. I loved all the details and personality that they put into their special day.

Amanda + Chris on the Farm :: Iowa Engagement Photography

Last week I had the pleasure of taking Amanda and Chris's engagement photos. Amanda is one of my  oldest and best friends, I think we have known each other since  kindergarten! Amanda and I are both planning our weddings, so over the past few months we have been sending emails and commiserating over wedding plans.  Amanda also had a ton of good ideas for her engagement photos and even brought props - so fun! We met in our hometown, Charles City, Iowa and headed out to the farm early in the morning. I managed to avoid stepping in the cow pies. We finished up the morning on a vintage couch, which Amanda pretty much searched all over the state of Iowa for. It was a blast taking their engagement photos; lots of laughs were shared.  I am honored that Amanda and Chris asked me to take their engagement and wedding photos and be part of their special day. I can't wait to shoot their wedding and see all their fun ideas!!

Early spring sun! The buds were just out in Iowa.

 Amanda and Chris are going for a vintage feel to their wedding, so I made a few of their photos look a bit more vintage-y.

 How cute is the love banner?!?! Amanda and Chris made it!

They also got the t-shirt made!

 This was pretty much too cute to not add :)

 We couldn't find a tractor, so a neon dump truck did the trick.


More vintage feel.
