Anne + Scott | River Hills Wedding | Milwaukee Wedding Photography



Today on the blog is a fantastic wedding that I photographed a few months ago. Todays warm weather (Warm weather to me is anytime the sun is out) here in Milwaukee made me think about it and thought it was about time that it was blogged.

If you might remember I had the pleasure of photographing Anne & Scott for their engagement session (Click here to check them out).

So I must start off by saying these two are pretty damn awesome. Tons of fun to photograph, comfortable in front of the camera, and fans of the Milwaukee Brewers. What more could I ask for?

They had their wedding at an aunt’s house in River Hills. I must say it was most likely the most awesome house I have ever been too. No Doubt. We had lucked out with having such a beautiful day for their wedding. Earlier in the week it had been raining and had a forecast for rain for the big day. There was debate weather or not to have a tent outside since the ceremony was to be held outside. A day prior they made the decision to take a chance and see what happens sans tent. It was an awesome decision. No rain! All sun!

Have a look at the photos and enjoy. Though I must warn you there are a lot!






A morning at North Point | Milwaukee Landscape Photography

This morning I had a little time to head out with a few photographer friends and do something I haven’t been able to do in a while. Shoot a wonderful Milwaukee sunrise over Lake Michigan.

For those of you reading this blog that are not from Milwaukee or have never been to Milwaukee, do it. Come here. Come visit. Just do it. You can even stay with me if you would like ( Maybe, as long as you shower).

This city really does have some wonderful sites and the shore line up Lake Michigan is definitely one of them.

Enjoy some photos and wish you were here in this amazing 45 degree weather on January 11th!

Mindy & Patrick | Engagement Session | Milwaukee Wedding Photography

Keeping on my roll of blog posts the past few days here is an Engagement Session I shot a few months back for Mindy & Patrick.

This session was one I was particularly looking forward to for a few reasons. First of all, Mindy and Patrick are pretty awesome folks. No joke. I do not say that a lot, but I mean it. These two have to be one of the most fun, laid back couples I have had the pleasure to photograph. Second: they have a Scottish terrier just like the two that we have ( Any one under 85 years old and who knows what or owns a Scottish terrier is good people in my book).

We did this session on Memorial day which was an awesome day. So awesome that I felt the need to embark on a 61 mile bike ride with a friend of mine prior to doing the session. If you have ever embarked on a 61 mile ride you know that it takes a little time to do, and a little time in the burning hot mid day sun with out sun screen means that I pretty much looked like a lobster while we did it. I maybe even looked like a McLobster… wait.. has anyone even encountered one of these?

We ran around downtown, thirdward and fifthwardand these are what we came up with. Enjoy some awesome photos and leave some Facebook “Like” love or some comment love. If you do, I just may love you back…..

Val & Josh | E-Session | Milwaukee Engagement Photography

A while back I had the pleasure to photograph two awesome people while being at a place I totally love. So what could be better?

Val and Josh contacted me through a mutual friend of ours looking to have some engagement photos taken. And I thought, Hey! I do that! Why not? Well thats not really what I said but you get the drift.

Val and Josh are huge Brewers fans, so am I. So I was quite pleased when they mentioned that they would love to shoot some photos at Miller Park and the surrounding area. I was definitely excited! We hopped on down to Miller Park, and boy was it warm. And when I say warm I mean it. It had to be about 90 degrees and crudtastic on the humidity scale.

We made our way around the park, and some of the awesome area around it. Miller Park and amazing light = Awesomeness! Check’ em out and let me know what you think!


Kittie | The Rave | Milwaukee Wisconsin Concert Photographer



Its been a while since I have taken the time to write a blog. Life is crazy right now. But time to get back to it!


I thought there would be no better way to get a rockin set of blogs started out with some rock, well metal to be exact.   Mmmmmmm metal……..

A few weeks ago I had the please of photographing “Kittie” at the Rave in Milwaukee for the third time in the past 2 years. And I must say, it does NOT get old! Not one bit!

This time around I have the pleasure of helping fellow photog John Schultze with some lighting for an interview and quick photo shoot supporting Kittie’s tour for their new album “I’ve Failed You”. This was a total quick shoot in the dressing room in the basement of the Rave. It was nice and cramped quarters (Imagine me moving a futon out of the way to setup a studio light in a 10×10 room, while half of the band was there).  After the interview we had to hit for the stage to claim a spot. Tonight concert will be on one of the smaller side stages at the Rave which mean; no pit,  not much room to move to vary the shot locations, horrid and I mean horrid lighting, also the possibility of getting destroyed by the mosh pit. All these things are things that I enjoy doing ( insert sarcasm here).

Here are some of many shots I took during Kittie’s set. Enjoy!

Buy their album so I can have the please of doing this more! I mean this.


Leave some comments below and let me know what you think:)
