This vintage inspired fall styled bridal session is absolutely PERFECT!!… I seriously had way too much fun dreaming up this whole shoot from styling, to the table setting, to the flannel over the tutu dress (everyone who knows me, knows my absolute obsession with anything plaid!!!) Not only is the table setting authentically vintage with the various pewter, silver plated and bronze table decor. As well as, the 1950’s inspired groom fashion paired with the large tutu style dress really ties these eclectic styles together for an overall cohesive fall styling. The florist did an incredible job of really pulling together various greens and bold fall flowers together for the perfect bouquet and matching centerpiece for the head table… she is a serious artist!! The decor was all gathered over a few weeks of going antique shopping and stopping at various garage sales in search of the the best styled…

Now here is a couple that’s truly meant to be, they are so perfectly in love! The Saint Croix River Valley offers so many breathtaking views from some of my favorite local parks and trails. From the stunning views along the paths of lakefront park to high atop the sandstone bluffs we captured some of the most incredible moments! There was so much energy and excitement that had it not been for sunset we could have continued shooting for hours, feeling like only moments!

Along the Riverside \\ Senior Portrait

What started as a fairly gloomy day threatening rain ended in one of the most powerful sunsets I have ever seen! Unless it’s pouring rain and storming I am always up for going out and doing a session! With what seems like a dreary cloudy day actually is a great opportunity for some subtle diffused light that compliments my style perfectly. Conversely what seems like an overly bright day with no clouds is a perfect opportunity to jump in the shade and get some dramatic slit lighting! This day was definitely one of those times where I am so happy we powered through the less than perfect weather and didn’t reschedule…. after all, you never know what surprises mother nature has in store…like an incredible sunset lasting almost 20 mins! Now a little bit about the shoot….! This girl is a-m-a-z-i-n-g…. so photogenic, full of energy and all smiles all…

Class of 2014 Athlete \\ Graduate


We started this session at the local high school football field in New Richmond, WI before heading to Willow Falls in Hudson, WI. I had a great time with this class of 2014 graduate; learning just how much goes into football gear and prep as well as hiking along the riverside! We decided to do the studio session on a separate day because it was definitely time for a dinner break after all those great photos and all that walking!
