When Jasmine initially contacted me she had talked about her ideas of a downtown engagement session, I was excited for the challenge of giving her something unique yet with a glamorous feel. She also told about their passions, Chris, an NFL football player for the Green Bay Packers and Jasmine, a dancer for the Dallas Black Dance Company. To say that I was completely nervous is and understatement. With each couple I want the world for them. I want their personalities, style and visions to come true. I am very grateful to the staff at the Villa Terrace Art Museum for going above and beyond to make this happen.  I also was almost in tears when meeting the two of them. Not only were they humble, kind and pretty dang hilarious they also brought their sweet little puppy along. Chris and Jasmine, Thank you for choosing me. For making this small town girl believe that anything is possible.



Shell & Nick’s Wisconsin Club Milwaukee Wedding

I cannot even begin to to describe what these two mean to me. Their love, their kindness and their complete love and faith in what I do. I was honored to be their photographer.

For right now you will get a peak into the first part of their day getting ready at the Wisconsin Club in Downtown Milwaukee.  I am heading out to help with a benefit for a sweet little girl Paityn although I promise there will be many more next week! xoxo Jen

Flower crowns. Yes, I might be a little obsessed. I can’t help it. You know that feeling when you see a pair of shoes, you have to have. You gasp. That’s me when I see a flower crown, kittens, junk treasures on the side of the road, etc.

Enough about me… ekkkk… this day. Incredible. Jessie and I spent our day traveling through the country roads of Door County.  It was an adventure. And not the crazy oh my gosh I have a photoshoot, I need to so this, this and this. It was, lets take this random road, lets sing really load, lets just explore. So, we did and it was magical.

Yes, you read that right. I shot her for me. It may sound odd to some but as a photographer it is a sense of awakening. As a creative you are always told, create art for you. Do what you love.

Although, the journey making wedding photography my career I had the mindset to work, work and work harder.

There are days of struggle and I think. How can I grow and be a better me? Will it ever get better than today?  How many boxes of thin mint cookies did I have this week? Oh, my kitty looks like it needs to be snuggled. Haha! Really, true life.

In the end I have to admit this life is pretty kick ass. To be completely honest, I have had more “pinch me” moments in the last year than I could ever imagine.

That brings me to Jessie. At the time I photographed her I felt in a place of needing a creative outlet. To literally design and create this shoot just for me. With the help of some amazing Wisconsin Wedding vendors, Flora Flowershop, A&A Artistry and I Do Bridal it all came together.  An extra thank you to Helen at Flora Flowershop. Not only did she let us explore her beautiful property in Sister Bay, she also embraced my creative vision. What I love about Helen is no idea was not considered. From lending us the broach for Jessie’s veil to helping me style it just right.

More to come next week from this shoot.

Starting out with Turner Ballroom located in the heart of Downtown Milwaukee. Hands down one of my favorite historical wedding venues in Wisconsin. If I had my wedding over again, it would be here. Oh those hardwood floors. Swoon.

Rich golds and that ribbon.  Yum!  Almost too pretty to eat.  These creations by The Cake Lady in Southern Wisconsin.

This Elise gown by WattersWtoo paired with the THEIACouture overskirt is a unique and elegant combination created at Miss Ruby Boutique in Milwaukee.


White gold emerald cut citrine. Yes, it is to die for. I am totally not a diamonds girl so this not so traditional ring is to die for. Designed and crafted by two sisters,  ALYSSA & ANNA Fine Jewelers of Oshkosh.

Think spring with the rich color palette from Frontier Flowers Of Fontana located in Southern Wisconsin.
