nikki & chase

All is not lost if it rains on your wedding day! How awesome did these shots turn out with not so hot weather. If you are willing to be a little adventurous and don't mind a few sprinkles, you too can have great photo's that don't have to be inside! Thanks to Nikki and Chase's fun spirits and rad attitudes they got great shots! We had such a good time with you guys. Thank you for being flexible and having fun with us. It really paid off! All the best to you both. Em

Pam & Ryan had their engagement session at the Eau Claire Dells. What a great place to have a photo session. The area is so perfect and offers many different angles and background for beautiful photo's. Love is in the air at the Dells! Cheers to your engagement over the next year! Looking forward to next July with you both. Happy day, Em

teri & mike

Cheers to Teri and Mike on their recent celebration of their marriage. They incorporated their annual family reunion weekend with their wedding so everyone could celebrate big time. And celebrate they did!!! Meghan shot their beautiful wedding and then the next day the Luau party, Hula lessons, fire throwing, and tropical attire made the night perfect. Meghan had a blast capturing the fun. All the best to you both!

jana & tyler

I was able to meet up with Jana and Tyler last week for some shoots down at Jordon park. I was amazed at how lovely and fun these siblings were together. These teens were awesome and so great to work with. Clearly their pictures speak for themselves. One of my favorites is the last one as they are walking through the tunnel with mom following behind. Like she is watching them as they emerge into the big world in front of them! I know ... very deep!
Thanks again guys for a great evening. Best of luck this next year at school. Have fun! Em

Gram's 99th BIRTHDAY!!!!

Today was my Grama's 99th birthday. We celebrated with a party this afternoon, loads of friends and family, a band, a heap of cards, yummy cake, and a ton of pictures. Gram took a quick nap at the beginning to prepare, but then she put her smile on, made funny faces, and jammed to the music. Young and old were there to celebrate Gram! I love you Gram .... Happy Birthday!

Can't wait to hear about it at the wedding. Happy day, Em

kate & pete Kent, England

Huge Congrats to my dear friends Kate and Pete Nolan who were married last weekend. What an amazing wedding! Not only was I able to attend but was also hired to take the pictures. You guys certainly put on an amazing party. Will and I had the best time.
The day started at Kate's parents house with getting ready, cups of tea, and glasses of wine! We then walked across the "green" about 100 yard to the church. So perfect!
The ceremony was preformed by Kate's Godfather and her mother sang "One Hand one Heart" at the end of the ceremony. I don't think there was a dry eye in the house!!!
After the ceremony we then walked back to the house for cocktails and the reception in her parents garden in the back. What an incredible place to celebrate the wedding. And celebrate we did!!!! There was so much joy in that tent I thought it would burst!
Dancing and singing went on until the early hours of the morning. Kate's Nan was even there until 3am I believe! No one wanted the party to end. I think that I even got on stage at the end with an Elvis wig on! Yicks! Those pictures are not for public viewing!!!!!
What a blessing to be a part of your special day. We had an amazing time and hope that you have the best time on your honeymoon to Bali. Cheers, Ems & Will
