Madison Wedding Flowers Photoshoot

My friend Renee with Madison Wedding Flowers and I met through this great little creative community called The Rising Tide. I don't remember how I found out about this Facebook group but the idea of "Community over Competition" really resonated with me early on. Jordan and I quickly found the local expression of The Rising Tide here in Madison, WI and realized they meet once a month. Creatives all over the area - some wedding photographers, event planners, florists, custom wedding dress designers... creativity seeping out of every corner of this group. 

Back to Renee, I met her through this Tuesdays Together group here in Madison and instantly felt like I really liked who she was/is as a person. It's only an added bonus that she creates these floral pieces that give me heart eyes for days! So when she mentioned having some peonies left over from a wedding and photographing some pieces for her, I was all about it! Take a look at these amazing florals and those herb crowns! Yes please. Renee, you're amazing. Thank you for letting me go to town photographing your floral arrangements! 


Madison barn photoshoot | Jeremy + Amanda

For as long as my children have been looking out the car window and talking about what they see, they have been saying hello to and commenting on a donkey, buffalo, and horses that they see, living on the property with a big barn right around the corner from my in laws. Well, one night this past summer we were driving our usual drive home and Jordan and I saw a wedding happening at that beloved barn! Being wedding photographers, this was exciting to us! Ever since then I was planning and thinking up a photo shoot there on the property of Emily's Ten Oaks Ranch

My friends agreed to be our models (Thanks a ton Jeremy and Amanda! You two rocked it!), the amazing Alice Ezrow did Amanda's hair and makeup, and Renee with Madison Wedding Flowers (also amazing!) created these two floral crowns and one herb crown for me!

Brides, I HIGHLY recommend a crown with rosemary, sage, and even lavender on your wedding day! Want to know why? Because the smell is absolutely amazing and it'll totally relax you (at least it did me as I wore it around after the photoshoot)! 

One last thank you to my awesome husband and business partner who also has some great photos in the mix here. He's been working with me some in 2014 and all of 2015 and he's the best!
