Matt & Annie are one of my favorite couple’s from this year.  It’s ok…….I can have favorites, I’m allowed:D I appreciate all of my clients but obviously will click with some even more than others.  Annie hit it spot on when she said to me at her pre wedding consult ” I feel like I have the NW Wisconsin A Team at my wedding.”  With Heartwood Resort as the venue, In The Woods Floral & Events  handling the flowers and decor, yours truly handling photo and video and Noah from Beautiful Day DJ’s keeping the party going all night it was sure to be an amazing day.

They truly are a beautiful couple with an amazing family and circle of friends.  I think this is probably the largest blog post I have made yet I had such a hard time narrowing down their blog images from 1400 finished images!!

Stouts Island is one of my top 5 favorite places to photograph weddings.  When you ride the ferry over to the island you really do feel like you have entered your own little world while you are there.  You pull up to a beautiful boat house and then climb the stairs up to the lodge.  The staff is all friendly and super helpful.

Jack and Cherie live in Seattle, WA and wanted to just go to sign the papers to be married but were convinced by their family to have a “destination” wedding and Stouts Island was the chosen place.

I am in love with their family photos in front of the willow trees! Probably some of my favorite family shots all year.

Arron & Trista were married at Maple Ridge Farm in Taylors Falls, MN.  This adorable farm wedding venue features a house for the wedding party to stay in and a white one story barn for the venue.  They had a beautiful day with wonderful weather.  Arron & Trista love camping and love Taylors Falls so we went to multiple locations to photograph their romantic shots.

There was great food and bingo at dinner which made for some great entertainment:D

I hope you enjoy looking at their wedding as much as I enjoyed photographing it!

I traveled to Phoenix, AZ to capture this amazing couple’s engagement photos:D Mike has been my husband and my friend for nearly 10 years.  He has been there through our lowest point and seen us grow to what we are today!  He joined the Marines several years ago and that is where he met this beautiful girl Tiara:D

My entire family is flying to Phoenix for their wedding next year in fact Cody will be a groomsmen and Sawyer our son will be the ring bearer, while Rick and I photograph and film the wedding.  It will be quite an event!

We had a beautiful day traveling up to Sedona and Flagstaff and I hope you enjoy this peak into their session.
