‘As most great Midwestern love stories go, they met because of an ice fishing trip,’ said the best man during a heartfelt, and albeit funny, speech at Emmaly and Brent’s reception a few weeks ago.   While I’m not sure if there’s statistical analysis to prove his claim one way or another, I’m sure there are plenty of couples that would agree.  However, the best part of Emmaly and Brent’s love story is that Brent never actually made it to a frozen lake that weekend.  Instead, Brent and his friends ventured out to a Madison watering hole, where Emmaly, consequently, met up with the group, having a mutual friend-of-a-friend in common.  Wouldn’t you know it?  A little bit of harmless banter and BAM!  Smitten.  The rest, they say, is history.

Emmaly and I have been friends for more years than I care to divulge – having worked together in college at the local Supper Club (how’s that for Midwestern-ness for ya?)  I taught her everything she knows about schlepping prime rib and the art of White Merlot.  For real – all me.  But I digress.  When Emmaly asked me to photograph her wedding, I was humbled, a little nervous, and super excited, because I knew this wedding was going to be fabulous!

The festivities took place at Inn on the Park, which is a bea-u-ti-ful hotel with amazing views of Wisconsin’s capitol in Madison, WI.  The entire wedding party was up for anything, and since Emmaly works for the hotel, I had *almost* free reign of the place.   Of course, I took full advantage and *may* have pulled furniture in from the down the hall, to the roof and back, etc.  At any rate, it was all worth it. I took so many shots that I just loooove, I’ve deemed it necessary to split the wedding day into two posts.  So, sit back and enjoy – then come back in a few days and check out a few more!

Oh, and lastly, I thought I’d try something new.  If at least 25 people comment directly to this post, I’ll be sending Brent and Emmaly a little gift as a token of my appreciation!

The first look was done on the roof of the hotel – just a small perk of working for the hotel you hold your wedding at…

Ahhh, the wonders of modern technology…  I’m currently on a plane on my way home from a quick trip to Atlanta, GA, so figured, “what better way to pass the time then by posting a ridiculously passed due session?”

Olivia, Connor and their parents drove all the way from Menomonie, WI a few weeks back for a shoot at the studio I rent; isn’t that awesome!?  Olivia and Connor’s mom is friends with Adia’s mom, so booked some time after seeing Adia’s recent modeling post!   Even though Connor wasn’t completely up for photos that day, (partly my fault since I think I allowed for just a little too much fun before getting down to the photo nitty gritty) we still managed to get some fabulous shots in of brother,  sister and the whole fam… and I even snuck a few in of Mom and Dad!  :)

This little girl has had my heart from the day she was born – for one, she’s ridiculously cute (as seen below),  but Adia’s also über creative, super sweet, and has an imagination like no other!  No joke, she could fill your ear for a good hour about stories of all your neighbors that she’s never even met and the unicorns that love them…  So, when Adia recently became represented by a local modeling agency and needed some head-shots taken, I jumped at the chance!  We had such a blast at my new found studio in Minneapolis, I just may have taken toooo many photos for her mom to choose from…  Adia is definitely destined for showbiz, and I can’t wait to see where it takes her!
