Nicki & Hutch – Chetek, WI Wedding Photographer

I couldn’t be happier posting images from Nicki &  Hutch’s wedding day. They were a breeze to photograph in every sense of the word. It was very hard for me to narrow them down for this post. When people are truly happy, it shows through every photo, whether given direction or not. I probably didn’t need to tell them what to do, they created photographic magic just being near each other.  Nicki, thank you for putting trust in a girl from high school to shoot your wedding.  It was very cool to see you so beautiful and so totally in love. And to get to take pictures, well that was just the icing on the cake. Congrats to you both, keep in touch!


Another something exciting from this wedding…my dear friends, Al & Richard were Nicki’s florists, and they did not dissapoint! (715-868-4433)



This wedding was also a family affair. My mom (Just Friends Catering) made the food. It was excellent as always.

I’ll end with a photo that really represents Nicki & Hutch together. Him always with his arm around her and kissing her forehead.

Life and Style Kids – Kennedy

Kennedy was a total doll for her 3 year photos. I especially loved her wedge sandals…have to get Taya a pair soon! (check out our kids website if you are still going to the main site to see kids photos!)


Kennedy ended her session with an impromptu dance for us. Very, very sweet!




Melanie & Curt {Eau Claire, Wisconsin wedding photographer}

Melanie & Curt’s wedding was in Durand, Wi with a reception following at the Florian Gardens in Eau Claire.  It was such a great day for a photographer!  Both venues were beautiful as were the couple and their beautiful daughter, Hailey.  I was very happy to document their entire day.  Such wonderful people.

{I so badly want a picture like this with me and my two little girls!} 🙂

Gabrielle & Nathan {Eau Claire, Wisconsin wedding photographer}

I’ll be photographing Gabrielle & Nathan’s wedding next summer. It was great to meet them and do their engagement pictures.  Gabrielle does some photography of her own, so she had an idea to incorporate their new love of kayaking in their pictures……let me say……I am quite obsessed with them!  It couldn’t have been a better evening for their session.  And, for the first time in a l-o-n-g time, I appreciated the lake I live on.  Watching them get out on their kayaks together reminded me of the days (before kids) when Brent and I would head out on the lake together and relax. While I photographed them,  I made a little note in my head to start walking down to the lake for things other than taking pictures.  Enjoy your sneak peek!!

Jessica + Ryan wedding {Eau Claire wedding photographer}

Jessica & Ryan were married 7/16 in Eau Claire. They had their ceremony at the Florian Gardens and the reception at the Metropolis  next door.  Both venues offered beautiful backdrops for photos.

I love these next two pictures. If you look closely, you can see the ring bearer trying to get his hand out of a tightly clenched flower girls fingers…..and when he did, he started his sprint back the way he came!

These bridesmaid’s dresses were so fun.  I love the pattern!
