In-Home Extended Family Session

These two both graduated from UW Madison, but that’s not where they met. In fact, they didn’t even meet here in the United States… Back in 2016, Glennie and Alex both went on a medical mission trip to El Salvador. Glennie was getting ready to move to New York after the trip, so when Alex asked her out, she turned him down. But God knew what He was doing, and meant for them to be led back to each other…

Glennie and Alex | Fall Engagement Session at Vilas Neighborhood and Henry Vilas Park

It might have been super cold during their session (I guess that’s what we get in November here in Wisconsin!) but these kiddos were all such champs! The promise of hot chocolate after the session might have helped too. ūüėČ

Fall Family Session on Private Property

As a Catholic wedding photographer, I feel totally at home when photographing the Mass because it’s what I know and love.¬† But even though I know what to expect throughout the ceremony, every once in a while I get to be surprised by the beautiful personal touches planned for the ceremony.¬† I got to experience […]

They were sitting in their physics class at the beginning of the semester.¬† The instructor was splitting the class into groups by calling out his interests and hobbies, and the students were supposed to raise their hand if he called one they too enjoyed.¬† They were very specific, and slightly obscure interests and hobbies… so […]
