I think I will say “Go gett’m tiger” more in 2014.

2013. BOOM 2013!!! Yeah!!! There was some good and some bad–right?? I suppose that is what happens every year. I’m going to focus on the good parts cause nobody wants to read a debbie downer blog. (well….more people would probably like to but not from me SUCKAS!!!) I got to shoot some fun fun fun photos in the world this past year! Lots of Isthmus and a few Madison Magazine shots (which is new!! or newish!!). Shot more commercial stuff than in the past which I really loved doing and of course the 100’s of orange & white photo shoots took up some time. Weddings & Families & Seniors & Baby shoots!!!

some things I learned yo: Philanthropists really are happy. Happiest group of people I have ever shot. People always relax around animals, every old(er) person thinks they are going to break your camera, and 97% of brides are a delight to be around.  oxox

it’s a Lydia & Simon wedding yo.

Lydia and Simon! I was looking forward to their wedding all summer. ASHLAND WISCONSIN I LOVE YOU!  Of course when I signed up for it I imaged I’d get there like a week early and do all kinds of outdoor hiking and canoeing. That didn’t happen. I worked the day before & drove up the day of their wedding.  The first thing I do when I get to Ashland is stop by the water and take her photo. (her? probably–it seems like cars & maybe bodies of water could be gals.??) It was a rainy & windy one!

I know these two cause they are friends with my sister & bro in law & live right down the street. Mostly I have played the train game with them & I love it. It’s really called Ticket to Ride. Play this game. Oh & I see them at the Black Cat coffee shop every time I’m there clicking away. I saw them there the day after their wedding.

Lydia & Simon live in a really cool old school house or possibly it’s an old nunnery. The tent was set up right outside. And of course they went with a space theme. At least it was the backdrop to the ceremony. It’s pretty amazing. Right before the ceremony was going to start the sun came out–I think I did a cartwheel I was so excited.

The highlights of the wedding (according to me) were the fruit infused vodka drinks, hats worn at the wedding, family photos! (yes! family photos turned out really fun!), and the delicious food! My first doughnut wedding. Lydia & Simon are a good team. A perfect team.

Noel & Jason :: August 17, 2013. it’s a wedding. it’s cute. of course.

Noel & Jason are nice & normal. Which is so great. I see them at the bar sometimes and they are nice and normal. I also have this pet peeve thing when people want to be weird. Makes me crazy. I will save all this for another blog post. Just real quick though–I’m sorry to be the one to let you know that you are not that weird.

I know Jason from doing photos for the Isthmus and also when I see him in the world he is a delight to talk to. I got to know Noel after booking their weeding and how lucky am I. Very. The wedding was at the Olbrich gardens and the reception at the Olin Park. Olin Park might be my new favorite reception site.  In between the wedding & reception we stopped down at the Great Dane for photos and a beer break. Everyday should have a mid afternoon beer break.

Noel & Jason love all their friends. I know this from watching them at their reception. I like that.

The weather was great. The people were nice. Perfect Day.

I hate the Packers.

Just kidding! Just kidding. I LOVE the Packers!!!!! I have Packer themed clothes. Ok. maybe I love my packer themed clothes and drinking beers more than I love the Packers…but I still love the Packers. Did Aaron Rogers get married? I feel like I read this somewhere. HEATHER & JOHNNY ALSO LOVE THE PACKERS and had to move their wedding date cause having a wedding in Green Bay on a Packer day and that seems like a real pain in the ass.

This was maybe the fastest photo shoot i’ve ever done! 15 minutes maybe + a location change drive. They really would’ve been done in 4 minutes if I didn’t talk them into the extra 11 minutes. Not one photo was taken without the cheese head. They mean it.  I will probably get a Packers dress for their wedding.

06.06.13 :: Ella & Ryan. hearts.

I had been looking to forward to shooting Ella & Ryan’s wedding ever since they booked me. They are some nice & solid folks! Ella told me how she wasn’t going to have time to cry cause her friend Kelly would be cracking her up the whole time! This Kelly did not disappoint. She’s the gal who tucks her dress into her spanks. That is funny. Ella did manage to have cute bride tears though!  Ella & Ryan have been together for like 100 years. Or maybe something more like 7 or 8 so it was so cute to see how nervous Ryan was before the ceremony. I loved the venue (the Overture) and the guests and the beer I drank after I was done shooting. (responsible wedding photographer!)

Phox Band!

I sorta have a band crush on this band. If you watch the movie they made you will too!!  http://www.phoxband.com/ (it might be considered more of a music video. I’m not sure. Movie sounds good to me. ) They are going to be super famous in like 3 minutes if they aren’t already. I am sure of this. AAAANNNNNDDDD omg so nice. They were so nice I wondered if they had a plan to assign one or two of the band members to talk to me. I got to do team cheer at the end of the shoot -The one where everyone puts there hand  in the middle with the “whooooooaaaa team” business. I love that shit. I think we yelled out something from the periodic table. That’s fun.

I took this photo for the cover of the Isthmus-I choose the backyard of the Eastside Club because it is a magical Madison location. If you are ever looking for me this summer I will probably be there. Playing croquet and drinking Pina Coladas.  Or really more like the Hopolicious beer. Those Pina Colada get all sugary and I would feel sick after 2. I’m glad I thought this through.

July 25, 2012 :: Cynthia & Justin!!!

I really love it when Justin & Cynthia get married. This wedding was great & perfect. Lawn games, music, and a DIY bar. I’ve known Cynthia for a couple years and she’s one of the nicest & easy going gals I know. Just goes with it–pleasant & nice. This is exactly how the wedding felt. No big to do’s. She did do a dress change from the wedding to reception-that was her diva moment. HA!

The bands that played at the wedding were delightful. Justin was looking very handsome in his suit. Shane gave a funny speech. The twice baked pototes from the 4&20 were delicious. The IPA a friend made was lovely. All the friends were looking super cute. Best day ever.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

07.06.2012 :: Krista & Ryan :: rooftop weddings are delightful.

Ok, I have some really good plans for my wedding. I thought I had everything all worked out and then I went to Ryan & Krista’s wedding on top of the Children’s Museum and everything has changed. It was amazing! The coolest location/space ever! trees on a rooftop! I love it! There is a little field of basil planted up there. I may have left with a pocket full of basil. i’m kidding.

I’d never been to the Children”s museum before and damn girl!!! that place if fuuuunnn!!! They do this fun event for adults once every two months where they open up the museum in the evening for adults and & can get beers and wine and play with all the kid stuff! I’m going to sures! OH, it’s called Adult Swim. Google it. I’ll see you there.

The rooftop where the wedding/reception took place was already perfect- Krista & Ryan added some nice little touches as well! I love a really pretty wedding-like the cute stuff they add- and I also love a low key wedding. This wedding was both.  It was one of the smallest weddings I’ve shot which made it feel really intimate. It also made me feel a little like the paparazzi-I don’t feel like I stalked people too much! That was good. The beautiful food was made by the hip Underground kitchen dudes.

I’ve known Ryan & Krista for awhile–I mostly see them at biking & drinking events. If there is an event that involves drinking + biking there is a 94% chance I will see them. They are a great couple and think they compliment each other really well. I wonder if they will think it’s weird I’m writing that. I’m pretty sure i’m right though.

Oh man, did Krista wear the cutest little polka dotted dress or what?? yes she did. & Ryan is looking very handsome in his vest. more dudes should wear cute vests. I call.

Congratulations guys! kick some ass being married. ox sv

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

James & Shawnee :: 06.16.2012

James and Shawnee got married!!!! This was a great wedding-probably one of the best. ever. in the history of getting married. They got a standing ovation after the kiss. I don’t think that’s normal, their friends are pretty awesome. or wait–they are pretty awesome. Maybe a combination of both. Probably this.

The wedding & reception was at the lovely badger barns. It’s a great location for a ceremony-reception-dance- & photos!!!! I feel like I have so much to say about James and Shawnee and here I am now and I can’t think of what to write. Most of the time when I shoot a wedding people ask me “oh, how do you know the couple?” usually my answer is that they hired me and I know them now and think they are great! I think this of most of my couples!! But with Shawnee & James it felt like I really did know them before.  I see them around town all the time-they are good people to be seeing around!!!  Do you ever see someone and pretend to be talking on your phone? i don’t do that when I see the J&S team.

Oh man, Shawnee’s mom cracked me up. She was funny! kinda reminded me of my mom maybe. HULLA HOOPS! how fun are hulla hoops!! I also learned at this wedding if you bring a few blow up balls kids will go crazy. I loved their ceremony. People said nice things to them–it’s my favorite. I know my thoughts are kinda random. The talented Nicole Cooke second shot this wedding with me. I’m pretty sure we kicked some ass. ox

James & Shawnee’s friends and family were 20% happier than the average person! I sometimes make up statistics. You should too. This is was just a nice place to be on the 16th. I’m so happy I got the chance to shoot their wedding.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

06.10.12 :: Molly & Russ

I loved meeting Molly and Russ and doing their engagement photos and now shooting their wedding!!! It felt like I was going to a friends wedding. I think I write this a lot. Mostly only  awesome people have me shoot their weddings! They are perfect together! I love how molly is always telling me how handsome Russ is. This might be because i’m telling them they are look’n good and she mostly replies with a “oh, i know, isn’t Russ handsome.” so cute!

Molli & Russ had a morning-ish wedding at the tini tiny church at the James Madison Park. After the wedding we made a quick stop at the capitol and then to the reception at Jonny Delmonico’s. I took the sweet ass limo (as Molly would call it) with them to the reception. While walking back to the james madison park I stopped at the crema cafe and drank a iced coffee. I looked in the mirror and it was pretty rough. Good thing everyone at the wedding is looking at the cute bride!!! OH! man! did you see Molly’s dress! AMAZING!!
