We hope you grab some coffee (or a diet coke, in my case) and enjoy viewing our latest work, browsing resources for photographers, and getting a little peek into our life!  Read more...

France, Italy & Switzerland

  • Europe Adventure 2016

Two weeks ago Michael and I left for a trip to photograph our first European destination wedding in France! It was a dream come true!! However, our adventure didn’t end there! Our good friends Jordan and Amy were also in Europe for a shoot and we planned to meet up after our work was done!! I’ll be honest, when we have a destination wedding… or really ANY wedding… that’s my only focus. Michael gets us there and I shoot my little heart out. So, when people asked me where we were going in Europe… I honestly had no idea. Michael and Jordan planned the entire trip and Amy and I just followed them around!

Jordan + Amy | Vow Renewal

  • Provence France Wedding Photographer

Some of you may have seen that Michael and I traveled to France to photograph a gorgeous wedding last week! It was a dream come true! After the wedding, we hit the road with our good friends Jordan and Amy Demos and we started a 5 day adventure to three different countries! This road trip would have been epic if it was just that… a road trip….but it was so much more than that! We stopped in Marseille on the second day of our journey and the next day, we did something that we have been looking forward to for a long time!

A Whimsical Wisconsin Wedding

  • Ryan + Paige

I have said it it so many times, we love being a part of friend and family weddings! Some photographers don’t like the pressure and responsibility that comes with shooting a family member’s wedding but I have to say that I wouldn’t want it any other way. Michael and I absolutely loved being a part of Paige and Ryan’s big day! The two of us and my dad made the journey to Wisconsin early on Friday morning and before I knew it, we were at rehearsal dinner with family that we hadn’t seen in over two years!! The last time we visited family at the lake, it was for Paige’s brother’s wedding two years prior. I only wish there were more cousins left in this family so that our pilgrimage to the lake could continue!! We love it up there. It was a perfect 75 degrees and 0% humidity! VERY different from the Florida weather we experienced two weeks ago!
