Somerby Golf Club wedding reception

last light painting wedding portrait of 2012

My last light painting wedding portrait I created in 2012. It was a good one too! During their reception at Somerby Golf Club, the storms were moving in and bringing winds and showers in the area. However, a nice little gap between rain allowed us to create something beautiful and magical.

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!

the last photo taken at the Danzinger Vineyards & Winery wedding reception

I told Ashley & Dustin I’d share this picture with everyone as we said our goodbyes to each other on Saturday. It was created just outside of their wedding reception which was held at the newly opened Danzinger Vineyards & Winery, located above Alma, Wisconsin.

It’s pretty cool. It’s one of a kind. It can never be created again.

another international award winning wedding photo!

I found out today that I placed 4th in the “Creative Portrait” category of the Artistic Guild of Wedding Photojournalist Association’s 2010 1st Quarter contest! I’m grateful & honored. It was so great to hear as my 2010 wedding season begins in full swing! I plan to incorporate more of this style of unique wedding imagery for all future clients. I can’t wait to create the next one!

Jill & Justin | Twin Cities wedding photography

For my last wedding of 2009, it was a full day of wedding coverage. From the salon in Woodbury, to a straight blade shave in downtown St. Paul, to the wedding in Buffalo and the reception in Maple Grove. Not to mention that it was a beautiful November day with temps in the mid-sixties. Wonderful friends & family to share the day with. Everything seemed to work out perfectly for Jill & Justin’s wedding.

I started at Salon Ultimo in Woodbury to get photos of Jill & her bridesmaids getting their hair & makeup. It is truly a process to see a woman become a bride on her wedding day. Such intricate little details. These details can take time. In all, it is all worthwhile for one of the biggest moments of one’s life.

Some images from the salon…
