The very first time I met Laquita and Jeff I just knew that they would be fabulous to photograph. Laquita is quite possibly the sweetest human being that I have ever met, has great style, and is just super down to earth and welcoming…and the very first conversation I had with Jeff was about scheduling engagement sessions around Packer games. 😉 So obviously I knew we would hit it off and I had been looking forward to their big day since day one. And let me tell you- it did not disappoint. So. Much. Fun. So many great people.

And the vendors that I worked with for this were fantastic! If you’re in the market be sure to check out Ideal Wedding Video and Celebrations on the River.

Laquita and Jeff- THANK YOU again for having me be a part of your special day. It truly was great, and I am so happy I was able to capture it for you. xo- Jess

You know what I love most about couples? When they go off the beaten path and do their wedding THEIR way. Sara and Mike nixed the traditional wedding day timeline and got married on a Saturday morning.  Sara’s attention to detail was perfection, and it really showed in the cake, centerpieces, and in her dress (it’s really a 2-piece, which of course I LOVED).

Sara and Mike, thank you so much for having me there! It was a gorgeous, GORGEOUS day, and a pleasure to work with you both! xo

I had been looking forward to Natalie and Brian’s wedding day since I first met them for their engagement session last year. They were adorable in front of my lens then, and again at their wedding a couple of weeks ago. They had a beautiful ceremony at Carroll College in Waukesha, WI (which Brian’s dad officiated…LOVE when that happens!) and their reception and dance was at The Rotunda (this was my first time there…absolutely beautiful! Check it out!)

Natalie and Brian thank you so much for choosing me to capture your day. It was so great working with you both! xo

Jeff and Kaleigh’s wedding day- where do I start?!

I have been looking forward to working with these two since Jeff hired me to shoot their proposal a year and a half ago. (you can re-live that amazing moment by clicking here.) They were absolutely adorable then, and I have loved working with them every step of the way!

Kaleigh and Jeff didn’t let the non-stop rain on their wedding day get them down, instead we embraced it, snuck under a canopy of trees when we got the chance, and just rolled with it.

Kaleigh and Jeff- THANK YOU for choosing me to document such amazing moments in your lives. <3  I had the best time working with you both, with Gunner, and with your friends and families. It was a gorgeous day, and I hope these photos bring you many happy memories for years to come. <3

Do you want my honest opinion?

The absolute best thing a couple can do on their wedding day is to make sure it reflects them as a couple. And Emily and Derek did just that. They were married in a beautiful local church, stopped by their family farm for some photos, and then to the town hall for their reception and dance. Small town weddings are just so….cozy. And sweet. And Emily and Derek were one of the sweetest, most sincere couples I’ve worked with, so it was all very fitting. <3

Emily and Derek, THANK YOU for choosing me to document your special day. It was an honor.
