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! 


Foodie Madison Wedding | Wisconsin Wedding Photographer

So here on my blog, this is the place where I get to show you my favorite images and the kind of work I’m looking to do more of. I usually like to be selective with photos I share. Likeness attracts likeness. So although I do photograph my share of indoor weddings (and enjoy them, even through a tiny bit of sadness to not be outside during any warm WI months), I would prefer to shoot more outdoor, backyard, obscure and unique wedding locations because aesthetically it just fits me and what I’m drawn to more. But then on occasion I shoot a wedding where the lighting indoors is really beautiful, or the gorgeousness of the brides dress is so great that I want you to see it over and over, even in indoor wedding ceremony photos. This wedding was one of those weddings where I just really want to show an entire wedding because I just do. I second shot this wedding with Maureen Cassidy, as I did on most of my free weekends in 2014. It’s always fun being her second and letting her big personality shine and my observant and more quiet personality to come out more and just shoot whatever is lovely and good. It’s a fun change and balance to the weddings where I am the main photographer. I really LOVED this couples foodie style and all the veggies and herbs that showed up in elements of their wedding. I was in the thick of my garden when I shot this wedding so the rosemary, cabbage, kale, artichoke, chive flowers, pear, and sage elements in with the flowers and cake and tables were a very welcome site for me and a joy to photograph. Her dress and shoes were also my favorite to date. A breathe of fresh air. Add in that every person we came across was just as lovely as the decor. Here you go. Enjoy.
