Valorie and Lucas {Married}

This wedding, will forever be dear to my heart;  After 13+ years in the wedding industries we experience a lot of “first” 
Donaghues, Wolff, VanderBent Family; you really know how to pull off one heck of a party. 

I’ll keep the backstory simple, this wedding was like non-other.  From a cardboard cut out of the best man (read more below).  A cheese spread like non-other; dinner catered the famous Village Pizzeria; and a new spin on the traditional dollar dance (see photo’s below)
This wedding day was spectacular, well thought out & personalized to this couple.  If you are planning a wedding take notes.

Meet Jack. 
The Best Man // aka: Flat Jack.
The real Jack could not be at the wedding, he was called to serve our country. 
Thank you for your service Jack, Godspeed.

 

The weather was not the most pleasant, it was chilly with wind. Guest were wrapped in blankets and wearing jackets.  Non-the-less the couple kept their dunk tank plan.  THANK YOU guys!!  The images captured says it all, it was EPIC.

Thank you DJ Jeremy for your years of dedication to keeping the dance floor full.

Check out that Cheese spread.  My favorite place at the reception for sure! 
Every wedding in Wisconsin needs to have a cheese spread this like!!

Planning Your Engagement Session

Why Should you have an Engagement Session?

You’re about to take that leap of faith, into a new life with with your fiance.  As you are busy planning and researching for the perfect vendors that you can trust and rely on to fulfill your dream wedding visions.  The last thing you may think of on your ever growing to-do list, is an engagement session. Perhaps you have no desires for photo’s because you are camera shy, or these photo’s are not important.   It’s my job to persuade you into a different mind set.  Your engagement session IS important.

This is the beginning of your story.   It doesn’t start at the wedding.  The engagement session is the prequel to the big wedding day.  It’s a time to capture moments that illustrate who you are individually and who you are together. When reading a book, I crave all those juicy details that sets the scene of the story.  When creating a story with visuals, it is important to set the scene.  Your pre-wedding story.  First comes love.  Then comes marriage.  Then comes the baby in the baby carriage…. right?  Oh, and they lived happily ever after

Get to know your photographer

Your engagement session is a great way to understand your photographers style.  Get to know your photographer, and how they capture moments. This allows you to be more relaxed & comfortable during your wedding day.  

From a photographers perspective: the engagement session is a stepping stone to understanding each client on a personal basis.  What the client likes to do as a couple, what posing is most flattering and what angles to avoid.  

Engagement sessions are my favorite, witnessing “young” love as a spectator.  I’ve been given the gift to capture these moments, let me tell you, it sure is a heartwarming experience while standing behind the lens.  Cheers to New Beginnings!
