Jennifer & Chad’s wedding

I was lucky enough to photograph Jennifer and Chad’s wedding this January, and they were lucky enough to get a beautiful winter day (before the negative 10 degree temperatures!). We had met a few times before, so I wasn’t surprised to find that their wedding a very classically elegant day with touches of funky flare.

All the accessories had a little bit of vintage charm.

The flowers were dried and were really gorgeous. I love that they fit into the winter color theme of the wedding without being drab.

Jennifer and Chad were so lovely when they saw each other for the first time, it was such a happy day!

The church was really lovely as well. Despite it being winter, there was gorgeous light in the chapel. Look how beautifully everyone coordinates!

They had their reception at the Landmark center in St Paul, which really does a beautiful job inside and out. I think they may have even chosen their day so that the lighting would be just perfect!

Fun Fashion Shoot

We had a great session with Brenna, who is doing some modeling and needed some new photos. Not only is she a very beautiful woman, but she has wonderful piercing eyes. Plus, she is a lot of fun, so we had a great time.

She was kind enough to let us take her outside in a Minnesota winter and generally play around with light to find some fun things.

Book about Cheesemakers

My husband and I are working on a book about the Master Cheesemakers of Wisconsin. If we can survive the many trips to Wisconsin for research, we should have a photo heavy coffee table book documenting these passionate and interesting guys. Here are some of the photos from our recent trip. We also continually update our cheesemaster blog at mastercheesemakerbook.com.

Wisconsin Winter Landscape

Wisconsin in Winter has some interesting views. This is outside of Monroe.

Farm Equipment

This was a piece of farm equipment we can not identify, but it is very photogenic!

Swiss Stencil

We can’t thank Bruce Workman of Edelweiss Creamery enough for letting us follow him around as he made some of his amazing Swiss cheese at his factory in southern Wisconsin. This is the stencil used to mark the new rounds of Swiss cheese.

The Blog Begins

I had the pleasure of being in a wedding (and not photographing it!) this summer for my best friend, Caryn. She had a great photographer, and was emailed a blog link to some photos just a few days after the wedding. I loved pouring over them until the rest of the photos came out, and I realized my clients would probably feel the same way. Plus, I am sure my husband will appreciate that I have an different outlet for talking about photography!
