Update : Where is the blog ?

Hi There!  I just wanted to post a quick note that we have identified an error with our network server via our host provider that affected the posts generated from our admin page from displaying properly on our blog.     I apologize as I was not immediately aware that many of you could not view our most recent posts.   I write and post via our admin panel and preview blog posts and links.  Unfortunately, I can see them, but they are not showing under our regular day by day feed.    :O

We have discovered a work around that we are putting in place.   We are setting up a static page directory and will be sending our couples direct links to access their wedding  feature page on our blog.     For those who stop by the blog to check out our most recent weddings and more, we hope to have our regular blog feed back up and running soon.    Stay tuned.




Shelley + Jon | Bridgewood Resort Wedding

They don’t come any sweeter than  Shelley & Jon.  I got REALLY excited when they choose me as a photographer.  It ends up being a reunion with one our past brides & grooms (Katie and Jake) and I love it!!!     Shelley & Jon had such an amazing day.   Their love, the tears, the smiles tell it all.    Oh and one of my favorite moments was when Jon and his Mom interrupted their regularly-scheduled first Mom and Son dance and did the best rock out dance I’ve ever seen.   Enjoy this amazing bride and groom.   Shelley & Jon, it was a joy to capture your gorgeous day.  Enjoy your sneak peek!  ~ Amy







Allison + Michael | Green Bay Thornberry Creek Wedding

Allison & Michael are just one of those couples – you know, the one you look at and can just FEEL their love!!    They are incredibly sweet and have the best families.    Capturing the day with them and their families was something special – in fact it felt like we were coming home.    It was if we were, because in 2013 we had the pleasure to capture Allison’s sister (Andrea & Mitch’s gorgeous wedding).   We couldn’t wait for Allison’s and Michael’s turn!

Anyone who gets to spend any amount of time with Allison, Michael and their families get’s to see and experience the close ties that bring their families together.     Their love, their fun spirit and genuine caring is infectious and it was a blessing and joy to be with them again.

Together, surrounded by their families and friends their day was beautiful and spoke loud and clear what true love is and I know it is something that Dan and I will take with us.   In truth, we count ourselves as the lucky ones.   Thank you for letting be apart of your day.      We are excited to feature Allison and Michael’s incredible Thornberry Creek at Oneida Country Club wedding.     ~ Amy




Allison & Michael | Thornberry Creek Wedding Sneak Peak

Allison & Michael we hope that you are having an incredible honeymoon!    Here is a sneak peak of your amazing wedding day and an even more amazing couple.    It’s just a tease because we want you to get back out to the beach and enjoy your honeymoon.    :)   Your full wedding feature will be published this coming Monday!

Much love and Joy!   ~ Amy & Dan




Natalie & Matt | Appleton Radisson Paper Valley Wedding

Natalie and Matt’s wedding was a day filled with joy, love and laughter!     From capturing Natalie getting ready surrounded by her Mom and best friends, to the quiet reflective moments we captured in her childhood bedroom for her iconic bridal portraits.    This is one of my favorite moments to create for our brides.   It’s a time for just the her.   It’s a time to breathe, a time to reflect… to simply take in all that she ever imagined her day would be, a fairy tale, becoming real before her eyes.

There truly wasn’t a moment of the day that wasn’t filled with love, laughter and maybe even a couple tears.   (I even caught myself tearing up a time or two.)   Days like this make me so thankful for being blessed with amazing couples like Natalie and Matt.   These two are so sweet together and anyone who is lucky enough to spend any amount of time around them will know this is true.   It reminds me of  how special what we do is and what  joy it is to share with you and capture.

Natalie and Matt we have enjoyed every moment with you from your sweet fall engagement session right through to the big day!     Thank you for letting us walk with you in this part of your journey together.  ~ Amy & Dan
