I got the honor of taking my brother-in-law and soon to be sister-in-law’s engagement photos. They are getting married in the spring next year at the Astor hotel and it is gonna be awesome. We walked around a bit by Lakefront Brewery then went to the Third Ward for some drinks and a few more photos. It was super chilly, but they worked it, were silly, and made some photos.
There isn’t much to say about this wedding that the photos don’t say. Super awesome bride and groom. Really great grandparents that are both hilarious and fantastic. Dancing and epicly large family photos. Yeah. All taking place at the Villa Filomena in Milwaukee. Check it out yall!
I’ve known Katie for a while, well… 2 years, so really not that long, but whateves. She is one of those people who you feel like you know forever even if you don’t. She is an awesome photographer and a super rad lady (who even says rad anymore?). When she got engaged and her and Ben had a lil sit down and chat with Jake and I about possibly shooting their wedding I was a bit giddy. I knew that she liked our stuff, but to be asked to shoot a wedding for another photographer who’s work I think is pretty great is like baking a pie for your grandma and asking her if it tastes like hers… or something like that.
Katie wanted some fall colors for the shoot and she had the perfect place as well. We went up to an island that Ben’s family has some camping property on and ran around for an afternoon/evening shooting photos. The colors were fantastic and the light was amazing. Early fall light is so good in the Midwest. So golden and so warm. We finished and hopped on the boat to get back to shore and go home. It was a super fun shoot and I could not ask for a better way to spend an afternoon then doing something I love with people who are excited about what I am doing! Love you guys!
Minneapolis. I’m from there. Biz and Ian are from there. We are now all in Milwaukee due to our travels and adventures that life has brought us through. I met Biz about a year and a half ago at the gym. She is a Yoga instructor and pretty much rules everything that goes on in the gym. We have talked about her and Ian getting some photos for quite a while and we finally got around to rocking some photos with her and her hubby so that they can fill up some wall space at their new house!!!
