Fun photo shoot today

I’ve been working on a new project lately and needed some pictures to go along with it. The project involves brides and an old yellow bike. I’ll be shedding more light on the project shortly, but for now, enjoy this fantabulous image from the photo shoot today. The model is Liz, she was one of my wedding clients last year.… Read more →

Lauren and Louie, an engaged stroll down State Street

The other day I had the pleasure of taking a stroll down State Street with a happy young couple that are quite obviously in love with each other.

DJ and Milissa, happily married

The other day, I was talking with a gal about doing photos for her upcoming album and we got to talking about fun things you can do with lighting at night.

It’s cold here in Wisconsin. You may not expect to be outside taking a lot of pictures at a wedding this time of year, but Megan and Justin don’t listen to the naysayers. Yup, that’s right, Megan and Justin are tough as nails and are willing to do what it takes to get the picture that they’ll remember for years… Read more →
