Fall in Holgas and 35mm

I am off to the Canadian Shield today or tomorrow for some time paddling, packing and portaging through the Boundary Waters. It might be a bit cold, or it might not be. I guess it depends on what your definition of cold is :) We went last year at this time and it was pretty much awesome. I am looking forward to being off the grid for a week. No email.... no phone....just water and woods :)

This week we did get in a canoe trip to celebrate my birthday! It was a great birthday... turning almost 30 isn't too bad! I haven't been shooting many holgas lately because my photo focus has been elsewhere..... but I wanted to shoot a roll though of this expired Agfa film from 2004 just to make sure it was ok and the colors weren't too weird. It was a win!

 Dan took this photo of me! It was pretty much one of the best birthdays of my 20's :)

Some more film photos.... I went on a walk late this summer at the Mead Nature Preserve and brought my trusty Pentax and a 50mm lens. I love the shallow dof! I forgot how much I love this camera and lens. I don't shoot through film to quickly with this camera... I usually bring my holga on outdoor walks. It is a nice change of pace though and I got to chase frogs and grasshoppers!

Kyrstn + Dan :: Stevens Point, Wisconsin Wedding Photography

Oh Happy Day!!!

I think that pretty much sums up Kyrstn and Dan's wedding day! Kyrstn and Dan got married on a beautiful fall day in Stevens Point, Wisconsin.  They were full of love and laughter during their big day; from pre-wedding prep through the reception, laughter was shared by all :) It really was a joy to photograph them and be a part of their wedding celebration. Congratulations Kysrtn and Dan!! Happy married life :)

We stopped at Iverson Park in Stevens Point to take wedding party shots. Their wedding party was seriously a blast and we had a great time taking photos. Iverson Park is a really great photo location too!

Snyder Family :: Marshfield, Wisconsin Family Photography.

Last week I photographed the Snyder family's photos at their home in rural Marshfield. We lucked out on a day that was sunny and not rainy... unfortunately it was cold and windy. You can't tell from the photos though!

Marcus :: Pittsville Class of 2012 Senior Photos

I photographed Marcus' senior photos few weeks ago on a very rainy Sunday. Luckily, it didn't rain the hours we took photos, only before and after :) We met at North Wood County Park where the fall colors were just beginning to show. It has become my favorite location for senior pics!
