Derreck and Aimee-Waukesha, WI Wedding

This groom and I go way back to when he played baseball with my little brother as kids. Derreck has to be one of the nicest guys I know. The years have flown by but he remains the sweet, big personality that he’s always been. The way he loves and talks about his family and friends is so very special. When he contacted me to meet with his new fiancé, Aimee, I knew she would be one incredible woman. When we met up, their smiles were contagious! They beamed with love for each other.

Derreck and Aimee’s big day arrived and started off with monster storms. Luckily, they missed us completely and made for a perfect day. These two were surrounded by so much love and support, it was truly perfection.

To the new Mr. and Mrs. Krause, I am so grateful to have been a part of your big day. I know that great things await you in your future. Congratulations!

Katie and Chad – Delafield Hotel Wedding

Katie and Chad and I met a few years back while I was working one of Chad’s oldest friends wedding. Once they got engaged they contact me to share their exciting news. We met for a drink to discus their vision of what they wanted for their big day. I knew almost right away we would get along and their wedding would be something amazing. 

The wedding itself was held at the church where Chad had grown up. Once the ceremony was over we made our way to the Historic Third Ward where endless pictures options are. The wedding party rocked it and you can tell how much they meant to the new Mr. and Mrs. We then headed to the charming Delafield Hotel where the party was happening. The food and old fashioneds were flowing, along with the dance floor. 

Katie and Chad- Thank you for allowing me to be there throughout the entire time. You guys are so special and I can’t wait to see where the future will take you!

Emily and Tom-Downtown Chicago Wedding

Emily and Tom had one of the most beautiful April Chicago weddings this year, and if you have been around the area you know that was a rare thing. The day definitely represented their relationship. It was the perfect way to start their marriage. Their ceremony was in the most beautiful cathedral that means the world to them and their family. 

Emily wore a stunning and classic ballgown while Tom had the best looking tuxedo on. Those two definitely made the city look good! A musician was playing for the public that seemed to sing for these two and had the celebration going. Once all of the pictures were done, we headed to Galleria Marchetti where their stunning reception was set up and ready for their guests. With the set up with a live band, I knew this was going to be a one fun party. 

These two are such a beautiful couple who has God leading their way. I know they will have great things in their future.

Mavric and Kylie – Jamaica Wedding

I had the pleasure of hopping on a plane to head to Jamaica for the perfect tropical destination-wedding for Mavric and Kylie. They contacted me last winter and asked me to make the trip with them. How could I say no?! I worked with Mav a few years back when he was a groomsmen at another wedding that I photographed. I’m always flattered when a couple meets me at another wedding and hires me down the road for their own! I was beyond excited to be on “island time” and enjoy the love and joy that Jamaica offers. The thing that I loved most about this type of wedding was how everyone acted together. We really felt part of this group. The day was a tad warm….ok…it was extremely humid and hot hot hot. But that didn’t stop anyone from enjoying the love of this couple! Every single person that made the trip meant the world to the bride and groom. All the stories that were shared allowed everyone to get to know how Mav and Kylie are together and how this true love story will continue forever.

Thank you for this couple for asking me to be there with them! I really felt like I was your close friend that happened to have a nice camera. I wish you guys hadn’t moved to Colorado! But I know we will get together in the near future and it will be like no time has passed!!! I wish you both a world full of marvelous things!

Best of 2018

As another year comes to an end, I wanted to stop and reflect on just how amazing 2018 was. It was filled with wonderful experiences and so much love! I could blog for hours about just how great it was, but I’ll have to settle for just one. Looking back at these perfect weddings makes me so incredibly grateful. I am grateful for the beautiful people and moments that I get to witness and be a part of. I really do have the best job in the world! Here is a look back at all that 2018 had in store for me.

Congratulations to all of the new love birds as you take on 2019 and so much more as husband and wife!!!

Ashley and Brad- Downtown Milwaukee Wedding

I met this crazy, beautiful bride about four years ago when she was dancing as a Diamond Dancer with one of my best friends. We all got to know each other and decided to run a half marathon together! It was an amazing experience to share and left me feeling very accomplished! A few years later, I was the photographer at our friend Ally’s wedding where Ashley was the Maid of Honor. Ally (the bride of the time) plotted to set up Ashley with Brad (the groom’s cousin). No one would have guessed that the couple would stick! Ashley and Brad hit it off and are now best friends. It’s easy to feel the love that they have for each other. When Ashley and Brad’s big day came, it was even better than they had planned for. The amount of family and friends that showed up and helped celebrate the newlyweds was truly amazing. These two clearly touch the hearts of many!

Ashley and Brad- I know you guys are going to go many places and build wonderful memories together! I really cant wait to see where you guys go!Thank you so much for allowing me to be a part of your “beginning!”

Nikki and Josh-Lake Geneva WI Wedding

Let me start this blog off by admitting that I know a lot more about this bride than most of my other brides! Nikki and I met on the first day of first grade and were in the same class together until we went our separate ways in high school. We have many great memories together including sleepovers, volleyball, and even toilet papering a few houses (my dad’s idea FYI). After school, we went our separate ways. When Nikki contacted me to tell me that she was engaged and wanted me to capture their big day from behind the lens, I was ecstatic! Nikki and Josh are the absolute perfect, goofy couple.

Their wedding was intimate and classic. I have never seen Nikki so elegant and beautiful! Her dress reminded me of old Hollywood. Their venue was the Maxwell Mansion in Lake Geneva, which is one of my favorites in the area. It’s a small but stunning mansion with beautiful details and character everywhere you look….the perfect setting for the smaller wedding they were going for. It’s crazy how time flies and moments like these make me happy that I have a career that allows me to connect with old friends for the big moments in their lives!

Nikki and Josh- Thank you for being the sweetest and goofiest couple! It was a joy to show you the “working Kim” instead of the “awkward Kim” that you know and love! 🙂 Congrats on your big day! I couldn’t be happier for the both of you!

Tony and Jessica-Milwaukee Yacht Club Wedding

Tony and Jessica have to be one of the most zen couples I have ever had the pleasure of working with. They were excited but calm and easy going for the entirety of their pictures. Im not going to lie, downtown Milwaukee was not easy on us! A Northwestern Mutual event, an air and water show, and unexpected rain, were just a few obstacles that we encountered. But that didn’t stop this couple from rocking their session!

The couple now lives in the Suburbs of CHI-TOWN, but they wanted to get married in the “city where it all began” (Milwaukee). Who knew that Marquette University would not only be an amazing school to attend and get a degree, but also to meet your soulmate! So of course we had to make a stop at the gorgeous campus in between the ceremony and reception. As we were getting started with pictures, mother nature decided to play a joke on us and start raining! Because we live in Wisconsin and the weather changes almost every minute, I am very use to this, like most of us are. So it cracked me up when Tony wanted to run back to the bus, but as for Jessica, she wanted to suck it up and not let a little water stop us! And I am so happy she decided to stick it out! The pictures will now be with them forever!

Tony and Jessica- It was a big treat to have such a wonderful couple to work with and I cant wait to get together and continue this friendship!!

Caryn and Jared- Pewaukee, WI Golf Course Wedding

I could see Caryn and Jared’s love for one another last year while photographing their engagement session, but on their wedding day I could tell that love had grown even deeper. The emotions that radiated from them were contagious and even had me choked up behind my lens. We couldn’t have asked for a more beautiful summer afternoon. The sun shone, the birds sang, and everyone loved celebrating the newlyweds. Caryn and Jared were married on a stunning Pewaukee golf course that had an incredible view. It was truly a photographer’s dream canvas and these two painted every ounce of it with beauty! I would love to thank this couple for trusting me to document the biggest moment of their lives! I hope that I can work with you both again when you come visit the good old state of WI! I wish you both all of the best!

Jennifer and Collin-Downtown MKE Wedding

Meeting one of my couples ON their wedding day is not ideal for me, but of all people to be in this situation-I’m so glad it was Jen & Collin! I felt like I knew them the second I walked in the door. Jen inquired me about a year and half before their special day. She told me that her and her fiancé decided to move out to South Carolina for a change of scenery and would be doing their engagement pictures out there. I decided right there to befriend her on all social media so we could get to know each other throughout the year. I am so glad we did that! Jen & Collin have a passion for running and thats how they originally met! While running the Rock ‘N Sole in Milwaukee three years ago, Jennifer laid eyes on Collin and took it upon herself to introduce herself during the run and even decided to run the rest of the race with him and his brother! She even told me that he didn’t even ask for her number afterwards, so she had to find him on Facebook to ask for HIS number. You go girl! He told me that he couldn’t believe she didn’t have a boyfriend already and thats why he had no clue that Jen was interested in talking. These two are incredibly in love, which is easy to see right away. Saturday June 16th, 2018 had to be one of the hottest days on record, but that didn’t stop them from having the best day of their lives! They even had one of the most epic wedding crashers, Donald Driver! Jen & Collin, your wedding is one for the books! I am so grateful and proud to have been a part of your beautiful day! I wish you guys a life of exciting and wonderful things. I know you two will take on this world running in the wind with each other!!
