{FEATURED} The Wedding Magazine – Coulee Region

As my wedding season is about to open full steam ahead in one week, I thought I’d let you know that some of my wedding photography was recently featured in a local wedding publication!

I know that not all of you in the area are planning a wedding, but if you are – an excellent resource for covering all aspects of a wedding can be found locally and for free! The Wedding Magazine – Coulee Region can be found at most local wedding vendor shops, including my own gallery & studio in downtown Winona, MN. You can also download a PDF online at the previous link above.

The following articles & pages feature some of my wedding photography:

“Music Made to Order”

“Creative Cuisine”

Color Ideas – (middle row, pink/black theme)

“Lighting the Way to Your Perfect Day”

and one sexy inside back cover…

; )

I didn’t take the cover image, but congrats to my fellow wedding photographer Tiffany Brubaker on landing the cover! So if you are going to tie the knot soon, keep an eye out for this wonderful wedding resource!


Must See Photography

I’ve been selected as a featured photographer in “Must See Photography” for MagnetStreet Weddings! You will see some of my photos in some of their online samples. MagnetStreet Weddings provides Save the Date magnets & cards, wedding invitations, wedding announcements & postcards and other magnetic favors for brides & grooms planning their weddings.

Check me out in MagnetStreet Weddings “Must See Photography” section! Here’s a screen shot:

Part 2 | Kristin & Jason | La Crosse, WI wedding

And now on to the party! The last half of Kristin & Jason’s wedding was the celebration. A celebration it was!! Seriously, if every reception had the vibe as their’s, you could charge admission. Seriously! They had no shortage of fun!

Before heading to the reception, we made a quick stop at Animal House, for a quick drink with the wedding party. Since they are fairly recent owners of a Harley-Davidson, it was sheer coincidence that these Harleys were outside. A fitting but perfect photo op!

Weddings by Nancy – beautiful wedding reception details

All weddings are different – that’s a fact. From the couple being married, the dress, the suits, to the wedding venues and right on down to the food served.

It is your wedding. Make it spectacular in every way.

When you plan/planned your wedding, how did you decide the decor or theme of the wedding day? Did you have help or did you do it yourself?

When it comes to planning a wedding, a large part does come down to the details. As they say, “It’s all about the details”. If you’re looking to make a statement with your wedding and provide a beautiful atmosphere for your guests at your wedding or perhaps you just need a professional opinion, I suggest looking up Nancy Flottmeyer, Weddings by Nancy, in La Crosse, WI.

I recently had a client who used Weddings by Nancy for the management of their wedding day & wedding reception design and it was truly a remarkable thing to see. The reception was held at the Stony Creek Inn and while I’ve shot a number of receptions there, it’s never looked this good…


You can contact Nancy at:

400 Main Street | Historic Doerflinger Building | Mezzanine Level

La Crosse, Wisconsin 54601 | PH. 608-796-2257


This post also serves as a preview of my next wedding to be featured on the site from the end of August!! Be sure to check back!!!

Mon Petit Cupcake | a sweet picture…

To be honest, I had a hard time with the subjects I shot yesterday. At the same time, they were so sweet…

I wanted to eat them.
