“Just stand there on the edge of the water….the waves look pretty far out” “Okay, now kiss” “Oh, wait, oh no!” (click, click, click) Fits of giggles, some very wet jeans, and a photographer grateful we were at the end of the shoot already.

It’s time to kick off wedding season in earnest….starting with Lisa & Jake this weekend at Whistling Straits!  My gear is tested and ready, and I can’t wait to document a wedding story!  It’s doubly nice to be starting the season off with one at one of my favorite venues. — If you are looking […]

The Oscars!  Such a gorgeous show this year.  I have a special place in my heart for this night.  As a former filmmaker it’s like stepping back in time a bit to surround myself with all things filmmaking for a night.  I’ve even seen a few classmates’ projects nominated over the years.  Anyway, I thought […]

**This wedding was shot by my fantastic Associate Photographer Melissa.**     What happens when an Irish race-car driver meets a effervescent girl from the midwest?  Apparently a lot of world travel, enough stories to fill a romantic comedy, plenty of fun and games, oh, and heaps of love.  Heaps.  For Mandy and Peter, their […]

I don’t think I ever blogged about the The Bridal Show at Overture from last fall.  This is a shame, because it was gorgeous, and I was honored to take part.  One day.  Anyway, I stumbled across my pictures from it the other day and just had to share this tablescape from the show.  It’s […]

Let’s catch up! — So, So, SO excited that my pal and associate photographer, Melissa, is flying in on Wednesday!  The countdown has been on for a week around here.  We haven’t seen our “Aunt Mo” for about seven months, which is way too long! — We’ve been making fairly stead progress […]

BIG THANKS to everyone who voted in the Best of 2013 contest.  We had a great turnout, and it was a blast to see the lead change hands so many times and the couples battle it out for first place. — It’s still winter.  Just in case any of you were wondering – though it […]

Maddy & Kyle had an interesting start.  They met at Trinity Bar, when both of them jockeyed for a front row spot as Zach Wade jammed on stage.  Kyle saw how the fun-loving dark-haired beauty’s eyes sparkled when she smiled,  and so he bought her a beer.  She, being the whip-smart independent girl that she […]

It’s the height of wedding season, everyone I know is hitting mid-season burnout, so really, who can keep track of what day of the week it is?  So, Miscellaneous Tuesday it is. —- I have 100% given up on the weather reports.  They haven’t been reliable since early spring really.  And this last Saturday was […]
