Stevens Point Wedding Photography | Nathan + Elizabeth

The start of the day was Elizabeth biking to Ruby Coffee Roasters in Stevens Point to finish writing her vows and have a bit of coffee. She was relaxed and calm and ready to marry her best friend. She then biked to Lake Emily County Park and she got ready in her dress. They wanted to see one another before the ceremony but didn't want to fuss with an orchestrated first look - something I appreciated for it's natural and completely candid way. Everything and every detail was completely them and it was wonderful.

There weren't a ton of flashy decorations but the bride and groom hung handwritten personal notes to each of their guests (including us - their photographers) which, in my opinion, was one of the greatest details of their day and was reflective of their loving personalities. The cards waived with the slight breeze as guests found their special note. Guests seated on quilts overlooking the lake on a pleasant warm day. The ceremony included everyone singing along to The Prayer of St Francis, a song near to mind and Jordan's heart because it was also sang at our wedding. 

In addition to the lovely wedding there was a frisbee game where the bride tore her wedding dress and changed back into her wedding clothes and kept going without any fuss. The bride and groom rode a tandem bike together as part of their photos together... but the very best detail of all was the scheduled story slam during the reception before the dancing began. Guests were encouraged to come to the wedding with a story planned and ready to share. It was simply THE BEST. Family and friends from all over came together and shared their stories about them individually and together... What a wonderful memory they will have forever.

Jordan created an wedding audio story for them by recording the couple before the wedding day and then during the wedding, you can listen to their story by following the link here below.

Huge thank you to Nathan and Elizabeth for hiring us to photograph and audio record your wedding day. It was a true honor and a day that makes us shake our heads and wonder how we ever got so lucky to cross paths with such lovely people and be invited in to such a great day. 

Winter Downtown Wedding Photography | Madison, Wisconsin

I've always thought winter weddings had a magical feel to them. Maybe it's because the first winter wedding I ever attended was in the Colorado mountains and absolutely delightful. Brides and grooms don't often choose a winter wedding here in Madison, WI - at least from my limited 7 years of living here - but when I am lucky enough to photograph one, It's always a treat. Thankfully their day wasn't too cold and beautifully decorated for Christmas! Check out my favorite images I photographed for Maureen as her second photographer. 

Photojournalistic Family Photos in Madison | B Family

One thing I love about having my own business is being able to lead a session in a way that speaks to who I am and how I work best. This session was easily one of my favorites. I hope you enjoy!

At The Garden | Madison Family Storytelling Photography Session

I’m excited to share that I’ll be still doing family sessions (in addition to weddings) in 2015. I will be offering mini sessions this year, which will likely take place in the late summer or fall this year. Mini sessions will be the only time I will be doing posed family sessions. Aside from the sessions already on my schedule and the mini sessions, I will be focusing on Storytelling Sessions. These sessions take place in your home and in outdoor locations of significance following you along in some of your family routines. I want to be able to document a families life as it is now. Check out this abbreviated sessions from last summer and be on the lookout for several more that will be hitting this blog soon. Shared meal with neighbors, a walk to the community garden plot, and a whole lot of down to earth, no fuss kind of goodness. These people are my kind of people.
