.rich & kaylee. Stevens Point, WI wedding photographer

Rich & Kaylee proved you don't need the sun to make your wedding day fabulous.  
They were up for anything and had no problem joining me outside and making do with what nature had to offer.  We found some great spots in between the church and the ceremony and the rain and wind held off just long enough to make being outside possible!  The joy that they shared for each other and their families made it easy to capture their smiles in any kind of weather.  
Big thank you's to Rich and Kaylee for having me be a part of their day.  I love being a part of couples celebrations.  All the best to you both,  Em

.jeff & jenny engagement session. Minneapolis & St. Paul wedding photographer

What an awesome pleasure it was to shoot with Jeff & Jenny.  I am always humbled when friends ask me to be their photographer.  We were given a beautiful fall afternoon with the sun popping just when we needed it to and the clouds to give us shade to give us perfect lighting.  I'm thrilled we were able to coordinate the shoot so quickly to get them a fall backdrop that they were looking for.  Happy happy joy joy is what I feel when I look at these images.  Cheers to you both and man congrats!!!  Love, Em

.peter & sara. Minneapolis, MN engagement photographer

It was a beautiful fall day when I met up with Peter and Sara and their lovely puppy for their engagement shoot.  What a perfect day we had as the weather has now turned quickly to cold and winter coats.   I adore this couple, but I have to say, their dog is pretty AWESOME too!  Some of these shots with her made me laugh right out loud.  Some of the ways she looks at the lens I swear she is saying, "Yep, check me out.  These people LOVE ME!  I'm a lucky dog."
I can't wait for Peter and Sara's big day in February.  It's going to rock!  All the best, Em

Meet the brand new beautiful Miss Elliot!  Born to some of my favorite clients Chris and Kelsy in late September.  It was so awesome to meet her in person finally.  Seeing them together was a great view into my future.  Thank you for including me in this amazing time of your lives and giving me a sneak peek into what January is going to be like at the Torhorst house!  Cheers to the 3 of you.
Much love, Em

.alison & ryan. engagement session Milwaukee Wedding Photographer

met Alison and Ryan downtown Milwaukee for their engagement shoot.  As it has been true to form all season, it POURED rain all day before we were going to start.  When I say rain, I mean "cats and dogs" kind of rain.  Our back up was to move our locations inside.  Not a big deal, just a change of plan.  Seconds before we started the sky opened and once again we had PERFECT weather for their outdoor engagement that incorporated nature and the backdrops of downtown.  I love it when a plan comes together!  Thanks for the fun you too.  Looking forward to next year with you back in Milwaukee.  Happy Autumn.

.danielle & adam. Stevens Point Wedding Photographer

What a celebration!!!  Danielle and Adam know how to throw one fabulous party.  From the fireworks to the band from Ireland (All Folk'D Up), the celebration of their love was a big one!  
The day started at a small church in Mosinee, WI where it all became "official!"  The wedding party then made it's way by pontoon to the reception that was hosted at their families land. The set up was perfect as tent and barn looked fabulous and hosted the perfect party.  
Danielle and Adam truly wanted the day to be as relaxed and fun as possible.  From what I can tell they got exactly what they wanted as everyone had a smile on as the celebration continued throughout the night.  
I'm so pumped that I was able to be a part of this wedding.  We had a great time with you and your families.  Cheers to you both.  All the best, Em
