Jen and Bryan, blown away together

The wind was strong, their love was stronger. Bryan and Jen were married the other day and I was lucky enough to be their photographer. The forecast called for rain and wind and general unpleasantries, but none of that could hold these two back. The venue was Over the Vines near Edgerton, WI, and with a big red barn for… Read more →

Angie and Jacob, rain or shine

It is weddings like this one that reinvigorate me. They remind me why I got married, they remind me why I love photographing weddings, they remind me why family and friends are so important. They remind me that I’m alive. From having all 8 grandparents in attendance to kissing in the rain under an umbrella, this wedding was full of… Read more →

A Thanksgiving wedding in Madison

When you think of Thanksgiving, you usually think of turkey, food coma, football and shopping (at least, that’s what I typically think of). Emily and Lee, on the other hand, think of throwing one helluva wedding party. For their special day, they chose to have the ceremony at Monona Terrace and the reception at the Concourse Hotel. In between, we… Read more →

A red and white UW alumni wedding

Paul and Kristen live in Chicago, but they met on the campus of UW Madison. When they were planning their wedding, they knew it had to be in Madison and it had to come with a heavy dose of Red and White. They got their wish and had everything from a stroll down State Street (Abbey Road style), a seat… Read more →

Lauren and Louie, one hot wedding

Lauren and Louie are a great couple, you don’t have to spend much time with them to figure that out. I have had the wonderful opportunity to photograph their engagement pictures as well as their wedding, and I can’t say enough good things about them. The wedding this past weekend was wonderful, if just a tad hot. Even though we… Read more →

Self portrait, cycling

Ah, the self portrait. Before this year, I hadn’t done a self portrait since college, but for some reason, I’ve done two different self portraits so far this year. I think the biggest reason is that my kids are at an age where they are tired of being photographed and I’m left with either myself or my dog to shoot.… Read more →

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. I love photographing people who are so into each other — not only does it make my job easier, but it’s a breath of fresh air when two people can’t take their… Read more →

The surveyor

I’ve seen this guy hanging out up on his perch for the past few days during my morning commute. He didn’t seem to mind me taking his picture, though I’m sure his nest isn’t too far away. Read more →
