Leah and Andrew | Green Bay Wedding

What a day!! This was the first wedding ever where I’ve had to go down to the basement as a tornado was passing by. The wind was whipping. The rain was coming down sideways. And the ceremony was scheduled to be outside at Pamprin Park. Sadly Pamprin Park had no indoor backup option. The reception venue however, did come to the rescue. Vandervest Olde 41 quickly accommodated the wedding party by setting up for the ceremony that was to take place in just a couple of hours. They also had an amazing outdoor space for photos(the rain stopped! woo!!). You handled everything like a champ Leah. Hoping you and Drew have a lifetime of happiness together.

Love this moment when Leah’s dad sees her for the first time as a bride.

Kerry and Mirel | Punta Mita, Mexico | Part 1

Where do I even begin with this wedding? My final wedding of 2017, and it was more amazing than I can even describe. I've known Kerry's family for quite some time now, but when I got the email to photograph Kerry's wedding in Punta Mita, Mexico, I was floored. To have the opportunity to photograph a wedding in such an amazing location.... pretty sure I did a happy dance. I have so many photos I want to share with you all that I am splitting this into parts. I was there from a Thursday until Sunday, and photographed all of the events that happened over the weekend from the welcome cocktails, to the rehearsal fiesta, to the wedding and finally the farewell brunch. Here are some of my favorites so far for the first half of the wedding day. 
Wedding Venue: Four Seasons, Puta Mita. Rentals: Rocco and Grupo Trendy. Florist: Francisco Salazar from VODAX. Huppa: Mobva. Hair and Makeup: Franc Gole and Jesus Avelar. Video and Second Shooter: Maxiko Media and Eder Acevedo. Wedding Planners: Chic Concepts Wedding Gown: Vera Wang.

Referral Program

Ok my friends. I've decided to start up a referral program again. My business has always succeeded because of my wonderful clients spreading the word, and I'd love to reward those for continuing to do so. Starting today, if you send an engaged couple my way and they book their wedding with me, and they name you, you will receive $100 off a family/equine photo session. What?!?! Thank you, thank you, to everyone for their continued support!!

The Johnson Wedding Celebration.

I wanted to share a few shots with you from my cousin's wedding just this last saturday. I was not the official photographer but a guest. However, I could not leave the house without my camera. Thank god! Because the "official" photographer for their wedding decided he had to leave shortly after the ceremony unexpectedly. So I stepped in for the win. haha... It was a gorgeous back yard wedding close to the shores of Lake Michigan. Close friends and family, a DJ that was tha bomb, and delicious catering from Real Urban BBQ. Enjoy!
