Milwaukee Wedding

Tuesday, October 1st, 2013

I had a great wedding in Milwaukee 2 weekends ago. The wedding was downtown at Old Saint Mary’s church and the reception was at Lake Park Bistro. We also made a few stops along the way. It was the perfect day for a wedding. Great weather and a great couple, fun for all


First wedding for the year

Saturday, June 8th, 2013

It seems like forever between the seasons. I shot my first wedding for the year last weekend. Wedding was at St Mary’s in Appleton and the reception was at Homestead Meadows in Appleton. The bride is “the girl next door” really, well she lives across the street from me. My son also stood up in the wedding. I did my best not to embarrass him. Here are a few photos from the day.

Merry Christmas!!

Wedding in Medina

Thursday, September 22nd, 2011

Had a great wedding last weekend at the Medina Wedding Chapel. Weather was perfect and I had a fun couple to work with, what I would call a win-win situation. We stopped for photos down in the flats before going to the Grand Meridian for dinner.

Here are some photos from the day

Wedding in Suamico

Thursday, August 18th, 2011

I had a great wedding this past weekend in Suamico. We had a blast the entire day. We made a couple of stops along the way and ended up at Black Forest Dining & Spirits in Green Bay. Music was by Scott from Elite Music Service who did an outstanding job, as usual, for making everyone have a great time. Here a few shot from the day

Wedding at Waterfront Banquets

Sunday, March 21st, 2010

I had a great wedding yesterday at Waterfront Banquets.  You may also know it as Pullman’s or Trolley Square.  It is a smaller venue with great food and it overlooks the river.  We did go outside yesterday for a few photos.  My couple are from Arizona so they are not quite used to the cooler weather anymore, but they were troopers with it.  I think we all got a little spoiled with the exceptionally warm weather we had earlier in the week.  Here are some photos from the day, enjoy.

First Wedding for ’10

Sunday, February 28th, 2010

Saturday was my first wedding for the year ’10.  Some how “10 just doesn’t roll of the tongue like ’09 or ’08 or ’98 or anything.  I think this is going to take a bit to get used to.  Luckily that doesn’t affect my weddings.  I had an absolute blast with Stephanie and Ryan this weekend.  I can’t tell you the last time I have seen so much energy at a wedding.  All day was non stop.  We had a running theme of Super Heroes for the day.  This is the start to a great wedding season.  Enjoy the photos

Winter Weddings

Sunday, January 24th, 2010

Here is a photo from a few years ago I did at the Red Mill in Waupaca.  I was recently asked if I had any photos from past winter weddings.  I did and created a gallery for the couple to see.  You can view the gallery here.

Winter weddings are not that common here in Wisconsin, but in reality they are not that much different than summer weddings.  It is just colder, there’s snow, and it gets darker earlier.  You can “brave the elements”  and go outside for photos or stay inside.  Most couples prefer the inside option.  The couple in the photo above did not.  Their license plate said “LUV SNOW” so I knew where photos were going to be.   The chapel at the Red Mill also has no heat and it was about 18 degrees that day.  I wore my finest wedding Carhartt’s and Sorel’s.

So what do you do If you are staying inside?   You look for cool backgrounds to use.  It also may mean you use a few extra lights to help the photo.  In the photo below, I had the couple go up 4 floors and I put a light on the same floor as them off to their left.  This gave the photo some dimension.  I also used a light by the camera to help fill in some of the shadows.

So if you are thinking of a winter wedding don’t be afraid, there are always options for great photos.

Here are few photos from Saturday’s wedding.  It was a perfect day, beautiful weather and a fabulous couple.  The service was in a small town nearby and the reception at the Grand Meridian in Appleton.

The church was at capacity.  They had guests in the balcony and they had to bring up folding chairs from the basement.

Wedding at Whistling Straits

Sunday, August 23rd, 2009

A few weeks ago I did a wedding at Whistling Straits golf course.  It is absolutely breath taking place for a wedding.  The weather was perfect and I was  working with a great couple.  I finally have some images ready to post.  It has been hectic for me the past few weeks, but it is that time of year.


Some details from the day







I love to capture people smiling and laughing,  the real person comes out and it is always wonderful.  The groom was so easy for this, his smile and laugh were contagious, you can not help but smile as well.










They had the band Nightlife for the evening and they were out of this world.  If you are looking for a band for your wedding check them out.  They sounded great.
