Mariah & George! oxox

Mariah & George! I shot so many fun 2013 weddings that I should be blogging!!! I’m going to try to get up as many as I can these cold cold months when i’m not as busy. I really loved this Mariah & George wedding–they got married at a farm about 45 minutes outside of Chicago. While driving out there I did not expect there to be such a hidden gem amongst the Panara Breads and Starbucks. Then Boom!!! surprise! Cute little farm!!! Mariah & George are friends with my gal pal Sopha. We shoot the wedding along with another one of their photo friends Prince. It felt a bit paparazzi but it was fun hanging out with the photo team.

Mariah & George did a great job making their wedding soooo beautiful! And And And they are cute & crazy in love. What else could I ask for? Nothing. That’s right. Nothing. oxox

I think I will say “Go gett’m tiger” more in 2014.

2013. BOOM 2013!!! Yeah!!! There was some good and some bad–right?? I suppose that is what happens every year. I’m going to focus on the good parts cause nobody wants to read a debbie downer blog. (well….more people would probably like to but not from me SUCKAS!!!) I got to shoot some fun fun fun photos in the world this past year! Lots of Isthmus and a few Madison Magazine shots (which is new!! or newish!!). Shot more commercial stuff than in the past which I really loved doing and of course the 100’s of orange & white photo shoots took up some time. Weddings & Families & Seniors & Baby shoots!!!

some things I learned yo: Philanthropists really are happy. Happiest group of people I have ever shot. People always relax around animals, every old(er) person thinks they are going to break your camera, and 97% of brides are a delight to be around.  oxox

it’s a Lydia & Simon wedding yo.

Lydia and Simon! I was looking forward to their wedding all summer. ASHLAND WISCONSIN I LOVE YOU!  Of course when I signed up for it I imaged I’d get there like a week early and do all kinds of outdoor hiking and canoeing. That didn’t happen. I worked the day before & drove up the day of their wedding.  The first thing I do when I get to Ashland is stop by the water and take her photo. (her? probably–it seems like cars & maybe bodies of water could be gals.??) It was a rainy & windy one!

I know these two cause they are friends with my sister & bro in law & live right down the street. Mostly I have played the train game with them & I love it. It’s really called Ticket to Ride. Play this game. Oh & I see them at the Black Cat coffee shop every time I’m there clicking away. I saw them there the day after their wedding.

Lydia & Simon live in a really cool old school house or possibly it’s an old nunnery. The tent was set up right outside. And of course they went with a space theme. At least it was the backdrop to the ceremony. It’s pretty amazing. Right before the ceremony was going to start the sun came out–I think I did a cartwheel I was so excited.

The highlights of the wedding (according to me) were the fruit infused vodka drinks, hats worn at the wedding, family photos! (yes! family photos turned out really fun!), and the delicious food! My first doughnut wedding. Lydia & Simon are a good team. A perfect team.

Noel & Jason :: August 17, 2013. it’s a wedding. it’s cute. of course.

Noel & Jason are nice & normal. Which is so great. I see them at the bar sometimes and they are nice and normal. I also have this pet peeve thing when people want to be weird. Makes me crazy. I will save all this for another blog post. Just real quick though–I’m sorry to be the one to let you know that you are not that weird.

I know Jason from doing photos for the Isthmus and also when I see him in the world he is a delight to talk to. I got to know Noel after booking their weeding and how lucky am I. Very. The wedding was at the Olbrich gardens and the reception at the Olin Park. Olin Park might be my new favorite reception site.  In between the wedding & reception we stopped down at the Great Dane for photos and a beer break. Everyday should have a mid afternoon beer break.

Noel & Jason love all their friends. I know this from watching them at their reception. I like that.

The weather was great. The people were nice. Perfect Day.

James & Shawnee :: 06.16.2012

James and Shawnee got married!!!! This was a great wedding-probably one of the best. ever. in the history of getting married. They got a standing ovation after the kiss. I don’t think that’s normal, their friends are pretty awesome. or wait–they are pretty awesome. Maybe a combination of both. Probably this.

The wedding & reception was at the lovely badger barns. It’s a great location for a ceremony-reception-dance- & photos!!!! I feel like I have so much to say about James and Shawnee and here I am now and I can’t think of what to write. Most of the time when I shoot a wedding people ask me “oh, how do you know the couple?” usually my answer is that they hired me and I know them now and think they are great! I think this of most of my couples!! But with Shawnee & James it felt like I really did know them before.  I see them around town all the time-they are good people to be seeing around!!!  Do you ever see someone and pretend to be talking on your phone? i don’t do that when I see the J&S team.

Oh man, Shawnee’s mom cracked me up. She was funny! kinda reminded me of my mom maybe. HULLA HOOPS! how fun are hulla hoops!! I also learned at this wedding if you bring a few blow up balls kids will go crazy. I loved their ceremony. People said nice things to them–it’s my favorite. I know my thoughts are kinda random. The talented Nicole Cooke second shot this wedding with me. I’m pretty sure we kicked some ass. ox

James & Shawnee’s friends and family were 20% happier than the average person! I sometimes make up statistics. You should too. This is was just a nice place to be on the 16th. I’m so happy I got the chance to shoot their wedding.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

06.10.12 :: Molly & Russ

I loved meeting Molly and Russ and doing their engagement photos and now shooting their wedding!!! It felt like I was going to a friends wedding. I think I write this a lot. Mostly only  awesome people have me shoot their weddings! They are perfect together! I love how molly is always telling me how handsome Russ is. This might be because i’m telling them they are look’n good and she mostly replies with a “oh, i know, isn’t Russ handsome.” so cute!

Molli & Russ had a morning-ish wedding at the tini tiny church at the James Madison Park. After the wedding we made a quick stop at the capitol and then to the reception at Jonny Delmonico’s. I took the sweet ass limo (as Molly would call it) with them to the reception. While walking back to the james madison park I stopped at the crema cafe and drank a iced coffee. I looked in the mirror and it was pretty rough. Good thing everyone at the wedding is looking at the cute bride!!! OH! man! did you see Molly’s dress! AMAZING!!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Recreative Crafts/Awesome Photoshoot!

Rosy makes the cutest skirts ever! you will need to own one. I own a few of Rosy originals in my life and i must say they have made me 20-32% happier. and she made me the cutest cutest kitten t-shirt. I will wear it everyday forever.

she sells her wears on the internets here: http://www.etsy.com/shop/RecreativeCrafts

or you can visit her at the farmers market on Saturdays! she’s on State Street.

and she’s a delight to hang out with. i bet if you ask her to tell you a joke she will. i may or may not be right about this.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Mighty Miss! that’s what people say. so i say it too.

sometimes I go on vaca to the mississippi. not the state. the river. I even swim in the river even though all the locals strongly advice against it. i didn’t die. see. i showed them. oh, and it was the main channel.

fun things to do if you do go to the mississippi river: eat chicken from the rotary club, look at the mississippi, make ipod mixes that invoke the spirit of the mississippi river- i suggest jenny lewis, oh & drink beers.

this is josh. it was his idea to go to the mississippi river. he has good ideas.
