Melissa & Brandon!! Could you not have had the most perfect February wedding?! It all came together so perfectly…blizzard the week before with fresh snow, sun coming out at just the right time, the weather being ‘warm’ (yes, 38 degrees is warm in Wisconsin in Feb.), and the most perfect couple…who’s willing to hike through knee high snow, in wedding attire, to the most perfect photo spot at Hawks View.
I met Melissa over a year ago at the Hawks View bridal show. I clearly remember meeting her because she caught me off guard with how excited she was to have found me. I just LOVE it when a bride knows what she’s looking for in a photographer, and trusts me 100% to capture her day the way I see it. There’s no ‘shot lists’ and millions of ‘Pinterest poses’ (well, we did have that rad sparkler shot ;) ), just us, going with the flow and doing what comes natural. Those are the best pictures, and those pictures tell the real story.
The wedding day is so fleeting, and that’s why the pictures are so important. They’re there to look back on, to remember one of the most important days, to remember the way you felt, to re-tell the story. They’re what you have left when it’s all said and done. It’s truly an honor when a couple chooses me to capture it all, and I don’t take that responsibility lightly. I thank you so much, Melissa & Brandon. Your wedding day was one for the books, and I’m thrilled I got to be a part if it. Oh, and winter weddings…my new favorite thing ever!
