Charisma + Nick’s Engagement Photos | Omro, Wisconsin

This wasn’t my idea, I promise! Normally, I’m the one encouraging people to go the extra mile or to do something a little funky in the name of making good photographs. Well, not this time!

We started off our photo shoot by ‘off-roading’ it to our destination; notice the young deer on the left. She was so curious she waited the longest time to run off. When we got far enough in, we decided that walking through the grass to the woods would be a great idea but the grass ended up being 3 feet above our heads and halfway there the ground became really wet. Thinking the beautiful woods was worth trekking to, we continued on.

Here’s beautiful Charisma and Nicholas shining with smiles all the way through. What you don’t see in most of the photos is that we’re all actually ankle deep in water! Charisma and Nick, we think you two are great and we love you for being brave and up for absolutely anything. We can’t wait to go the extra, creative mile on your wedding day!

Katy and Tom | A Green, Appleton, Wisconsin Wedding

This glowing bride started off her wedding day calm and cool as a cucumber with no fervorous rushing and completely ready for the day. I think you can see her relaxed and super cool attitude in the photos and what a difference that makes. What a great way to start the day!

Speaking of refreshing, Tom is such a great guy and full of energetic surprises. Now that he’s family too, leave him out of sibling photos and – surprise! This groom has some serious lift when he jumps! In “Tom’s Photobomb” series, I love that there’s this sly look on his face as he enters the scene, plus, I can’t believe we ended up with 14 photos and they’re all different. I’m thoroughly amused that Tom just kept going and going. What a fun and expressive group!

Not surprising, this awesome couple has awesome parents that are as good as gold, and siblings that are so kind and a ton of fun. Love and all the best to Katy and Tom! Katy and Tom, It was a pleasure to photograph your wedding and we wish you a lifetime of happiness!

Sharon and Andy | Oshkosh, Wisconsin Photographs

Sharon and Andy are an absolutely awesome couple. They’re laid back, cool and they’re extremely talented artists. Andy is a Jazz musician playing with the Jazz Orgy and Salsa Manzana and Sharon is an award winning photojournalist.

Imagine our surprise when Sharon called one day asking for photos of her and Andy together. Sharon said that she didn’t have many photographs of just the two of them, and setting the self-timer on her camera then posing just wouldn’t be the same. What a good time it was to spend an afternoon shooting and chatting with this top-notch couple. Congratulations to Andy and Sharon! We can’t wait to meet Moxie (name not official.)

Summer Engagement Photographs | Oshkosh, Wisconsin

Caitlin and Aaron are a refreshing, relaxed, awesome couple that we enjoyed spending the afternoon with while shooting engagement photos by the lake in Oshkosh. Earlier in the day, they were gardening before our photo shoot, so I like how the greens, water, and natural fields fit with their personality and endeavors for the day. Caitlin & Aaron met a few summers ago while working at Oshkosh’s famous EAA (experimental aircraft association). Eric and I were really entertained by their ‘how they got to know each other’ story, but I’ll ask first if sharing is in order and save that one for next time. Caitlin and Aaron, we’re really looking forward to your wedding day!

Oshkosh Engagement Photographs – Quella Photography

Adam and Andrea had their entire photo shoot in pouring rain and they never even flinched. Talk about a super-cool couple! Wild weather can really make for some funky shooting situations if you’re brave and willing to work with it. Adam drove in from Minneapolis to meet Andrea here for the shoot, so with the 5 hour drive, we never thought for a second about rescheduling. Both showed up at the studio looking sharp in crisp black and whites, and the minute we arrived at our destination, down came the rain.

For awhile, in the midst of the thunderstorm it became so dark that bright flood lights came on, and surprisingly, that ended up being wonderful because the bright light lit up the tree, the rain, and Adam & Andrea so it looks almost like the sun is shining.

Adam and Andrea – what a treat it was, even in torrential rain, for the afternoon to be so much fun! On your wedding day, I’m sure the sun will be shining!

May the Force – May 4th Wedding | Appleton, Wisconsin

Congratulations to a wonderful couple, Cindy and Eric. They are two kind-hearted individuals who have chose to dedicate their lives to professions of service and now to a lifetime of loving each other. Their ceremony was touching and meaningful. They wrote and read their own vows, with their love evident in their eyes. Don’t worry, they weren’t just about being serious. You can’t get married on May 4th without at least a few Star Wars references being thrown into the day. Walking through the canopy of light sabers was a nice touch!

May their marriage be blessed and May the 4th be with them, always!

Marquette University Engagement Photographs

Katy and Tom are such a sweet couple! They met at a retreat for scholarship program recipients while at Marquette University and ended up having Chemistry class together. It’s by no coincidence that Tom would casually have his breakfast outside the chemistry building before class when Katy would walk by. Katy would usually join him on the bench and they would walk into class together. That’s chemistry alright!

We joined Katy and Tom on the Marquette campus for engagement photos near the Joan of Arc Chapel and that very bench where Tom would wait for Katy. It was one of the first nice days of the year so we decided that going over toward the Milwaukee Art Museum would be another great location. We were all just a little disappointed that the wings on the museum weren’t up when we arrived. But no matter, it’s still a lovely location, and we were lucky enough and having so much fun, that we didn’t realize the wings were raised before we wrapped up shooting there.

Congratulations on your engagement Katy and Tom! We look forward to your wedding!
