I shot her for me | Midwest Wedding Photographer

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.

Wisconsin Wedding Inspiration Wednesday

Today I am sharing my loves and inspirations for all things wedding in Wisconsin. I am hoping to add this as a monthly lineup to showcase the kick ass talent we have right here in the Midwest.

Have something you would like shared on our Wisconsin Wedding features? Share the new trends and things your business is proud to showcase by using hashtag #wedinwisconsin


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.
