Mike and Stacy

These two had a perfect day for their outdoor wedding. Everything about the wedding was bright and sunny. From the flowers that Stacy picked for the bouquets, to the candy tables keeping guests sugar’d out!

I love shooting outdoor ceremonies, and this one was no exception. A lesson to anyone wanting some really great photos…. be flexible enough to allow for a short photo session right around sunset. Most summer days it is fairly late and most of the formal reception activities are over. This is the BEST time to get some really dramatic photos due to the light. Michael and Stacy were willing to step away from the crowd, and I think they will be happy they did!

You may play a horrible round of golf and then hit just ONE shot on 18 that is decent enough to make you smile and walk to the parking lot fee ...

From the excitement beforehand, to the happiness when seeing each other for the first time, they were pumped. During the ceremony they had a great moment when all of the bridal party gathered around them on the stage and Chris Tomlin's 'Our God' blared through the sound system. It was a great choice, and signified their strong love of God. Jeremy and Amanda are also photographers who shoot weddings, so it was an honor straight from the get-go that they chose me. I will admit it makes it a little more stressful knowing you have some artsy ...

Branden and Sol – Madison, WI
My cousin Branden and his bride Sol were married about a month ago in a very private setting. They decided they still wanted to have a party so they basically had a whole wedding day, minus the ceremony, for all of their friends and family to come and celebrate. Most of Sol's family is from Mexico, and about 40 of them made the trip up for the wedding. The Morgan family has music pumping through their genes... so there were definitely some times for that to be demonstrated. My uncle is a percussionist for the Madison Symphony Orchestra and Ryan and Branden are both involved in the band Misery Signals. Not for the soft of hearing. Branden's d ...
