Landon-030

Something happens when spring hits here in the Midwest. The tiny green buds on the trees breathe new life into us, inspiration hits. It’s incredible and yet a bit frustrating that winter always seems to hold on for so long. I suppose there’s part of the reasoning as to why we try to escape the Wisconsin winters and explore new places. Truly, when spring arrives, there is something deep in our bones that screams, new life! And so here we are again, just running with it.

These images are some extras from a recent shoot we did for Society6 of the crazy talented artist, Landon Sheely. You can view their feature here and learn more about Landon and his artwork here.

Happy spring.

five things you should know before viewing these images:

1 – These two live in NYC. Julian was born and raised in Greenwich Village. (That still kind of blows my mind, Julian.)

2 – They’re both psychotherapists but we never felt like they were analyzing us. ;)

3 – So many happy tears at this wedding, too. Keep the happy tears coming, friends!

4 – Quotes like this from a bride make our hearts sing: “To me, the most important investment for our day is our photographers, and it was first on my mind – I hope our day is going to be filled with personality, nature, and artistry and I don’t think anyone could do better at capturing these things visually for us and our loved ones to cherish!”

5 – As you can see from point #4, these two went above and beyond to make us feel like a king and queen. They contacted even before they set their date or found a venue, they adjusted their budget, and they wrote us multiple little love-note-emails to let us know how excited they were for us to be at their wedding. Are you kidding us? Thanks for choosing US, guys!

five things you should know before viewing these images:

1 – These two live in Seattle. Many of you already know about our love for the PNW so this little fact made us instant fans of them.

2 – Alex is a touring musician and Kristen works in urban agriculture and Seattle’s food scene, so of course, their wedding was filled with great tunes and awesome food.

3 – Underground Food Collective. Yum.

4 – So many happy tears! We always tell the couple’s family members not to worry, we love happy criers. ;)

5 – We’re a little crazy when it comes to nailing the golden hour. This one was a close call, but OH MAN, we’re fans of that glowy sun.

five things you should know before viewing these images:

1 – The Farm at Dover might just be our favorite wedding barn in Wisconsin. And that’s saying a lot, because there are quite a few wedding barns in this state.

2 – The best line of the day goes to one of Julie’s bridesmaids when they were all asked “Do you guys have a hashtag?” She replied, “A hashtag? Um, no. we’re too old for that.” (Clearly, they’re not.) haha!

3 –These two got engaged while camping and hiking in Banff National Park. We’re a little jealous.

4 – We spotted a vintage Vernon County Fair sign (which takes place in our little city) in the Grainery! Ray was tempted to steal it but, don’t worry, he would never.

5 – You know you’re on real farmland when a trailer full of round bales drives right behind the ceremony just as it’s about to begin. :)

five things you should know before viewing these images:

1 – These guys booked us less than two weeks before their wedding; on one of the only Saturdays we had open. Such a wonderful last-minute match!

2 – There are rumors about the history of Camp Dewan being a nudist camp, then a Christian camp, and now a wedding venue / getaway. Eclectic place.

3 –They had an early morning ceremony followed by a pig roast, then a relaxing break in the day, and a late-night food truck.

4 – Whitney and Wolfgang took a midday nap in their little yurt. Highly recommended. Might’ve been the best accidental idea ever.

5 – A tornado warning kept everyone inside for a bit. Just for a half an hour, but still noteworthy, because it was raining like crazy. :)
