Anne & Wes {Wedding :: Stevens Point, WI}

I was so excited when my friend Anne told me that she had gotten engaged! Even better, she wanted me to take photos! :)

Anne & Wes were married at SentryWorld in Stevens Point, WI. What a beautiful venue! The day was perfect for an outdoor ceremony. We were worried that the leaves would all be gone (let alone the colors!) but there were definitely still some gorgeous colors.

Congratulations, Anne & Wes! I'm so happy for both of you & I'm honored to have been able to be a part of your day!

I love when we have an opportunity to do a "First Look" - it helps the rest of the day be less stressful!

Willenbring 2012 {Family Portraits :: River Falls, WI}

I've been lucky enough to take portraits for the Willenbring family since 2009. I can't believe how much the boys have grown up, even just since last year! We always spend a fun fall evening at Glen Park in River Falls and take a quick walk as well as spend some time on the playground.

It was a little chilly outside, but everyone looked so great! We had a lot of fun - walking first, then getting to play on the playground. James wasn't so sure about me at first, but he was much more comfortable by the time we were done. He even wanted me to go out to dinner with the family! :)

The leaves we tossed at James & John came straight back at me!

They even got to play with pumpkins! James thought this one was a little too big to lift, so he decided to roll it...and John followed suit! :)
