sean & nicole, Stevens Point wedding photographer

Sean and Nicole's wedding was filled with laughter, joy and love.  The wedding celebration started at Saint Bronislava with a beautiful ceremony.  I continue to be impressed with the personal touches that they add to the weddings they host.  One of my favorite parts of a wedding is when ceremonies are specific to the couple.  Watch the slideshow to see everyone in attendance getting involved.  
After the service, Sean and Nicole gave me plenty of time to get creative and take them to some of my favorite new places in town.  Their color theme for the wedding was yellow, which was a first for me, so I really was able to use some new locations with them.  I adored the bridesmaids dresses, which also had pockets.  What a perfect thing for an active bridesmaid!   
Sean and Nicole were so relaxed and gave me an open door to take them anywhere I wanted.  The only request, "We want to have fun and look cool." Well, we had a rad time with you guys and your wedding party.  By the looks of things you had fun and we think you look super awesome, so hopefully you feel the same.  
After our run around town we continued the celebration at the Holiday Inn Stevens Point.  They of course did a great job as usual.  It seems like everything from the church, to the backdrops, to the lighting at the Inn ... was coordinated with their yellow theme.  Weather it was planned or not, it has made editing the images really fun.  It is also going to make their final album look awesome.  Thanks again for all the fun.  All the best to you both and cheers to your love, Em

kent & melissa engagement, washington island, WI photographer

A few weeks ago I had the great pleasure of traveling to Washington Island, WI to meet and photograph Kent and Melissa's to celebrate their engagement.  What an awesome time we had traveling around the island finding special spots of them just being themselves.  Kent grew up on the island so he was a great tour guide and teacher about the islands history.  We even included their gorgeous puppy in some of the fun.  I swear she is smiling in the photos!
I can't believe that I have to wait almost another year to capture the wedding celebration.   We are going to have another great time!  Thanks for the fun and bringing me to the island.  All the best,  Em

mr. thomas, stevens point portrait photographer

I love working with my past brides and grooms.  Dave and Liz had a beautiful wedding back in 2009 and now have a beautiful little boy Thomas.  I also love finding different areas or items in people's homes to use for our shoot.  I immediately fell in love with this awesome chair in their office and new we had to get him to try and sleep on it.  Like a pro he passed out and looked perfect!
It was great seeing your family again.  Thanks for including me in your big moments!  Cheers, Em

rob & lynn engagement, Minneapolis wedding photographer

I had the distinct pleasure of finally meeting Rob and Lynn in person for their engagement session.  Totally in love and adorable, Rob and Lynn followed my lead and totally eased into our shoot.  I sourced out some locations near their house in Farmington, MN, so that they could always remember their first home.  We spent the next hour having fun, getting to know each other, and relaxing into getting their photo taken.  I can't wait for your big day come up this fall.  Thanks again for the fun.  Cheers, Em

wigley fam, Minneapolis portrait photographer

The Wigley boys are some of my favorite regular homies.  What fun it is to see them grow from session to session.  We capture this session at their new house which fits them perfectly.  What a beautiful setting  for a beautiful summer day.  I adore you guys and am so thankful to have such awesome clients and friends.  Happy happy, Em
