Elizabeth & Justin wedding photographer – La Crosse, Wisconsin

August 2nd, 2009 – This past Saturday, I was the wedding photographer for Elizabeth & Justin in at English Lutheran Church in La Crosse, WI. I tell ya… it was a beautiful day for a wedding and it couldn’t have happened for two nicer people. They’ve got a bunch of pictures of which I took! There was so many little moments that couldn’t be missed, so I did my best to get them all.

They did not want to see each other prior to the wedding, I started with Elizabeth with the bridesmaids in their dressing room. There’s this dry erase board in there which is always fun for me to see at each wedding I shoot at English Lutheran as the bridesmaids always write something fun on there…

Elizabeth had a beautiful dress as well as a tiara. Everyone was making sure Elizabeth was looking ever so stunning on her wedding day…

It’s gonna be a full day of wedding photography in and around La Crosse, Wisconsin today! The wedding is for Elizabeth & Justin, whose engagement photos I took last October at Riverside Park. I’ll be shooting the wedding ceremony at English Lutheran Church in La Crosse. Later this evening, the wedding reception will be taking place at Forest Hills Golf course. We’re hoping to make a few stops between the ceremony and the reception, so I’m excited to be able to provide a wide variety of fun & unique wedding photography for them!
