Couple’s Picture on Farm |Katie + Jeff {crazy in love}

Couple’s Picture on Farm |Katie + Jeff {crazy in love}

I have known Jeff since my UW-Madison days, and Katie shortly after since I met her sister Nancy at Madison. Infact, it seems a little fishy that Jeff and Nancy were lab mates in the Soil Science department… but for all the grief Jeff gave Nancy over her adoarable little sister, fate would not have them date until after Jeff and Nancy graduated! So its so much fun to catch up with them and enjoy time on their adorable farm with Molly their four legged child 🙂 Thanks to Jeff’s parents who were very gracious and agreed to have some of their photos taken as well!!! They are super adorable… see for yourself!

Jody + Brian {engaged}

So before fall hit we had to be sure to get out on the lake with Jody and Brian, as they love to spend time on their pontoon boat. We were also incredibly lucky to spend some time on her grandpa’s farm which was so beautiful. Huge thanks to Jody’s dad who brought up her 25 year old horse (who seriously looked and acted like she was 2) out to the farm where we had a lot of fun with her. Of course there were also the children– Boceifus and Bella, and her Jeep! Cheers to a beautiful couple outside and in!

Lucky for Leah Marie and Jay… on a day that was predicted for one hundred percent chance of rain…it rained a bit in the morning, but the rest of the day was perfect!

Adventure awaits - I can't wait to meet you!

Cats, curling, and cuddling are three of my favorite things.  But when I can't do any of those I love to grab my camera and capture love.  You will find me unobtrusive, capturing moments as they happen.  Instead of working from a shot list, I simply react to the events around me.  The result is a visual story of your day which is very organic in nature.  This raw style will leave you with unique wedding images that allow you to relive your big day for a lifetime.
