Dan + Ashley | Married | South Second Wedding | Milwaukee Wedding Photographer

I love getting to capture weddings of family members of former clients. So many familiar faces, some of the family already knows who I am, it’s just is a comforting feeling when it happens!
I captured Dan’s sister’s wedding the year before, and was so excited to hear from Ashley around this time last year. Ashley still hadn’t chosen a venue (and therefore a date wasn’t official yet either) but she wanted me to be wherever they ended up, which is so flattering and I’m so humbled when clients say things like that.

Here are some of my favorite images from Dan + Ashley’s day. They chose some gorgeous spots for pictures, and I couldn’t get enough of the Lake Michigan backdrop!

Fun Fact: Dan + Ashley’s wedding date was the most popular date of 2018!

Okay yeah, someone grab the kleenex.

Gosh I love Milwaukee! We kept saying that we felt like they actually had a destination wedding! Such a gorgeous spot!

This little cutie was dominating the dance floor in her tiny pink chucks all night and I could hardly handle it!

Also, Fun Fact #2: there is always at least one person at every wedding that knows how to dance like Michael Jackson. Always.

Greg + Erin | Married | The Haight Wedding | Milwaukee Wedding Photographer

Where do I even begin?! This day was gorgeous from start to finish. Greg and Erin are such awesome, kind and generous. My morning started with Erin endlessly complimenting each of her bridesmaids, telling them how good they look. Mysi, my second shooter started her day goofing off with the groomsmen, taking silly portraits with the metal statues in the lobby. The awesome people in their wedding party, the ones they surround themselves with, their friends and family, they are a reflection of what awesome people Greg and Erin are.

Oh emotions warning. Maybe have tissues on hand just in case. I really could have used a few throughout this day. So many belly laughs and tears of all kinds were had throughout this entire day.

Okay, first tissue moment of the day. A little bit earlier in the day Greg’s mom approached Erin with a bracelet. She told her it was the bracelet that Greg’s dad, who recently passed, gave it to her on their wedding day. She gave it to Erin to wear on hers. Above is Erin showing Greg. *grabs box of kleenex* It’s fine. I’m fine, we’re all fine.

When you happen upon a farmers market, complete with live music, you dance in the middle of the street. Duh.

Basically every speech came with tears and laughter. Right after this speech from Greg’s mom, Erin looked over at me as I wiped my finger under my eye, she tilted her head and pointed at me and mouthed “are you crying??” NO! Foshure no, totes no emotion happening here! Just kidding. I at least teared up a little bit for probably every speech. It’s fine….

Sometimes Michael Jackson Dance Offs end in ripped pants.
