Emerson's California Senior Portrait Session

Everyone meet my little brother, Emerson! I can't believe he's going to be a senior in the fall. I'm getting old. I was in San Luis Obispo/Los Osos all last week hanging out with my family and wishing I lived in California. While I was there, I took an afternoon to go around town with Emerson to a few of his favorite spots to take his senior photos. We started out in Los Osos on this super cool trail with these great trees, then we headed to downtown SLO for some more urban feeling shots. The next evening we wanted to try and get the sunset at the beach at Montana de Oro, but unfortunately it was foggy both evenings we tried. So we just worked with it and ended up with a few great shots!

So anyways, as you will see by the photos, my little brother is basically a model, and with the amazing locations, it was hard to choose just a few favorites. Enjoy!

Adela + Andrew's Madison Engagement Session | Madison Wedding Photographer

This engagement session was absolutely perfect in every way. Perfect couple, perfect day, perfect locations. We started out at The Old Fashioned on the square where Andrew proposed. The staff was so great and let take a few photos upstairs where we had the whole room to ourselves. Then we headed over to the Capitol, and finally to a little beach area along Lake Mendota. This is a pretty long post for an engagement session, but I seriously had too many favorites to make it a short one!

I'm totally in love with how these photos turned out and am so excited for what is to be an amazing wedding next year.

Kaitlan + Mitch's Katherine Legge Memorial Lodge Wedding

Kaitlan and Mitch were absolutely perfect to work with. I didn't get to meet them until the wedding day, but they welcomed me with open arms and by the end of the day it was like I had known them for much longer than 10 crazy awesome hours. They were so comfortable with each other and weren't shy in front of the camera, which made my job so easy.

We were praying the rain would hold off all day, and although, I drove to the church in Naperville with my windshield wipers on, it cleared up by the time I got there that morning, and didn't come back the rest of the day. The whole day was full of love and fun, and I hope the spirit of the day comes through in the photos.

Kaitlan and Mitch, thank you for trusting me with your special day, and I hope Disney World was perfect!
