Newborn sessions will always have my heart!

This family was absolutely precious to photograph! Harper and Jack were so excited to embrace their new baby sister and couldn’t wait to give her all the cuddles and tell her all their jokes!

Juliette Rose was welcomed into the world this past June and I had the privilege of meeting her at just 11 days new!

It was such a joy to have this new little family of 3 in front of my camera and I couldn’t wait to join them in their new home to document this major milestone. Little Juliette was so incredibly sweet and was sleeping soundly the entire morning – the perfect little model! I could not get over her beautiful, dark hair and I especially loved her light, boho themed nursery and cute sloth details!

Babies are seriously the best – those little toes and thigh rolls get me EVERY. TIME. GAH!! But one of my absolute FAVORITE parts about newborn sessions is getting to watch the new parents with their little ones. It is very rare that I’m not tearing up behind that lens watching these sweet little moments!! It is so amazing to see so much love and excitement and to hear all about their hopes and dreams for their new baby! Glenn and Colette couldn’t take their eyes off their gorgeous daughter and her teeny, tiny little fingers!

Juliette – you are a very lucky little girl and it is so obvious that your parents are head over heals in love with you! Welcome to the world, beautiful!

Holiday Acres Resort Wedding Photos | Rhinelander Wisconsin | Destination Wedding Photographer | Paige & Garrett

This wedding day is one of my favorites to date!

Paige and Garrett met online just about 2 years ago and after their first date at AppleBee’s, they knew their fairytale had begun! These two have been inseparable ever since the day they met and their love is so true and beautiful.

Garrett proposed to Paige in such a romantic and creative way – he got her off work and sent her on a special scavenger hunt using letters listing all the things he loves about her! At the final location, he was waiting for her with roses, a handmade ring box and a custom made, one of a kind ring specially designed just for her! *swoon* I was even so lucky to be in on the secret and helped Garrett plan a surprise engagement photo session for these two at the Waterfall Glen Forest Preserve shortly after their engagement! Now if that proposal doesn’t sound amazing enough, wait till you see a peak at their wedding! Their wedding day was absolutely PERFECT!!

Paige and Garrett got married at the beautiful Holiday Acres Resort in Rhinelander, Wisconsin. The day was spent surrounded by amazing friends and family! One of my absolute favorite things about this wedding is all the attention to detail that these two incorporated into their day. All of the photos displayed from the entirety of they relationship, their baby bonnets as each others handkerchiefs and the romantic album Paige made for Garrett were all AMAZING but my very favorite detail? All of the petals the flower girls tossed were saved and pressed from every bouquet of flowers Garrett gave to Paige since day one!! HOW ROMANTIC IS THAT?!?!

Paige and Garrett – it has been such an honor to be a part of your love story and I am so incredibly blessed to have such amazing clients and friends like you guys! I wish you guys all the best in your life together and cannot wait to see what God has in store for you next! Congratulations, lovebirds!!

(And a special thank you to my good friend and fellow photographer, Christina, for tagging along to assist and photograph with me!)

THIS. FAMILY. THOUGH.

I LOVEEEE working with this adorable family!! We spent the morning running around and playing at the Wilderness Park in Redondo Beach. Using big sticks as magic wands, dancing around together and making silly faces, little Hezi always makes me laugh! I love his energetic and adventurous personality!

GAHHH!! How cute are they?!

Brant and Esther are MARRIED!!!

Brant and Esther met online back in 2014 (how cool is this – Esther grew up in the Netherlands!) and after a while of chatting, they became best friends. It wasn’t long before they realized they were perfect for each other and dove into a long distance relationship across the world!

Brant proposed to Esther at the top of the St. Vitus Cathedral while traveling in Prague (how romantic is that?!) and after months of wedding planning and a handful of complications, they decided to say their vows at sunset on the beach in Santa Monica, CA – officiated and surrounded by friends! It was such a beautiful evening and the happiness exuded from the bride and groom! Following the intimate ceremony in the sand, we headed to P.F. Changs and continued celebrating the newlyweds with dinner, drinks and dessert!

Brant and Esther – I am so beyond excited for you guys and cannot thank you enough for allowing me to be a part of your special day!! I cannot wait to see what comes next for you both in this next chapter of life together!!
