.katy & michael. Mosinee, WI Madison Wedding Photographer

Cheers to my newest in love couple, Katy and Michael.  I met them in person together last November for their engagement session on the UWSP (University of Wisconsin Stevens Point) where they originally met.  Since then I have been waiting patiently for their big day to arrive.
No rain to worry about this weekend as the drought and hot sun covered us all day.  We made the best of the heat by ducking in and out of shady spots and keeping it fun.  After the ceremony we went to Katy’s families private land and tree farm to capture some private moments of the couple and their wedding party having a good time.  I had no idea that they could be so silly with their friends around!  They could be super romantic and within seconds turn super goofy ... see below!
The rest of the celebration took place at the Holiday Inn in Scofield, WI.  The shenanigans continued with great toasts, beanbag toss, amazing dance moves and one heck of a garter toss.  Watch the slide show below to get the full vibe of all the fun.
Thank you Katy and Michael for trusting me with your dream day!  Much love to you both, Em

.pedro & jill. Calistoga, CA Madison WI Wedding photographer

LOVE = Jill & Pedro!
When Jill called me to tell me she was engaged I was overjoyed.  I have know Jill for over half my life and when people I love find love I get warm fuzzies!  To top off the excitement Jill asked me to be their photographer and I had perma glow!
The celebration was in Calistoga, CA deep in the heart of wine country.  What a perfect place for me to shoot as I love a good glass/bottle of wine!  The full wedding day took place at Hans Fahden up in the hills.  What a beautiful backdrop for this gorgeous couple.  I mean seriously, Jill and Pedro are amazing and lovely together.  I mean just look at how glowy and joyful they are together.
The best part is that we were completely blessed once again with the weather situation!!!  It was an overcast, cold and rainy day.  Again, nothing I can't work around but it is so much more lovely when it isn't raining for an outdoor ceremony.  Just like the week before ... the moment we started shooting the rain stopped and the sun even came out for a visit.  Jill and Pedro were able to have their outdoor ceremony and more outdoor pictures.  Then as if it was planned as we walked into the reception the cold and rain started up again.  Thank you God for blessing their day!
Many many cheers to Jill and Pedro.  I adore you both and am so excited to see where your next journey takes you.  Thank you for picking me to capture your memories.  All my love,  Em
