Nicole & Elliott: Trappers Turn Golf Club Wedding Photos

I traveled to Wisconsin Dells for Nicole & Elliott’s wedding at Trappers Turn Golf Club. I spent the morning with Nicole and the ladies doing hair and makeup at a salon in town while Justin photographed Elliott getting ready at Kalahari Resorts. Once everyone was ready, Nicole and Elliott did a first look at the golf course. With everyone there, we were able to finish family photos early and still have lots of time to wander the grounds for portraits …

Megan & Manfred: Paris Engagement Photos

When Megan & Manfred first contacted me they mentioned that they were living in Europe, so I suggested a Paris engagement session because who wouldn’t want Paris engagement photos? I’ve traveled for “destination” engagement sessions before, but never any farther than California. I’m so glad we were able to make it happen. We started the day with a stroll around the 4th Arrondissement in the heart of the city and in the shadow of Notre Dame Cathedral. From there, we …
