Whitney & Mike are approaching their second wedding anniversary (this November!), and what better way to plan an early celebration than with a road trip across the Midwest?? We were so thankful that Whitney & Mike planned to include a visit to Wausau in their travels so that we could spend a gorgeous evening getting to know each other and capturing their love!

Just a few months after these two got married Mike was deployed, so now that he’s home they are adorable “newlyweds” all over again and our cameras loved them for it. :) Whitney is a photographer as well in their home of Minot, ND, and both she and Mike seemed so comfortable being in front of the camera. We explored one of our favorite little gems in all of Central Wisconsin and, when the session ended, we both found ourselves wishing that Whitney and Mike lived closer so the four of us could have double dates together!!

Thank you two SO much for choosing us for this session – we so enjoyed spending time with you and hope you have a wonderful anniversary in just a couple months!

Love, Kelsy & Butch

Although we have pretty much known this day was coming for quite sometime, nothing can replace the realness when your sister calls from Hawaii to tell you that she’s engaged! AHH! We can barely contain our excitement! :D Charles had contacted Butch’s Dad about a month before he planned to propose to Stevi. We must admit, he planned EVERYTHING out perfectly… Right down to scheduling a trip to visit all of us in Door County right after he planned to ask Stevi for her hand in marriage in HAWAII!! If that isn’t cool enough, Charles asked Stevi to marry him in a helicopter! WOW! We of course flipped out, laughed and gave hugs over the phone when we got the call in the middle of the night! The only thing standing in the way of Charles’ master plan was a pair of hurricanes headed right for Hawaii – it just so happened that their plane home was scheduled to take off right between the two of them. But, they sailed smoothly all the way to Wisconsin and the celebrating continued! :)

After a FULL day of fun on the pontoon boat in Door County, we asked Stevi and Charles to join us for a few golden hour engagement photos in Butch’s & Stevi’s parents field. LOVE!

We know these two will plan an amazing wedding day that fits them perfectly and we honestly cannot wait to be there to celebrate with them!!

Love, Kelsy & Butch

Teresa and Dave’s wedding day was filled with warm smiles and full hearts everywhere you turned! Guests came from all over to help the two of them celebrate their love in Teresa’s hometown of Green Bay, Wisconsin. We knew Teresa from her days as a news anchor here in Wausau, Wisconsin, so we were especially excited when they chose us to document all the details, laughs and tears that filled their day. From the moment we arrived at her childhood home, Teresa’s smile took over her face! It was obvious she was overjoyed having her best ladies there for her while she slipped into her dress, walked down the aisle & shared her first dance with the man of her dreams! From Teresa’s contagious smile to Dave’s sweet, gentleman-like nature, they are such a wonderful couple to surround yourself with.

After a touching ceremony at the church Teresa’s family has been a part of for years their guests enjoyed cocktail hour complete with WI cheese curds, which were a new “treat” to many of their out-of-town guests! Up next was a romantically-lit reception with strung cafe lights, cupcakes, and non-stop guests singing songs about “love” to get Teresa and Dave to smooch! We’ve seen this at weddings before, but must give a huge high five to their SUPER talented guests because they all sounded amazing! Their musically gifted crowd kept energy high for a jam-packed dance floor, kicked off by Teresa and her Dad who had a little something special up their sleeve :)

Teresa and Dave, we couldn’t be happier for you!! We hope you had an amazing time in Cabo and are enjoying your first couple weeks as Mr & Mrs! :)

Love, Kelsy & Butch

When Kelsey & Dave mentioned they planned to be in Central WI for a visit and were interested in family portraits with their adorable little lady, Ruby Mae, we were ecstatic!! After photographing their absolutely awesome Enchanted Barn wedding just a few years ago, we enjoyed following their adventures in Portland and couldn’t wait to meet Miss Ruby in person. Turns out, she’s even cuter than we were led to believe by following her parents’ sweet #rubymaegram’s!! :) Thank you, Kelsey, Dave and Ruby for spending a beautiful afternoon with us in one of our favorite spots in Wausau! We are so happy to have you back in the midwest and look forward to a Red Eye date in our future ;)

Love, Kelsy & Butch

We’re not sure where to begin as we try to lace together words to match the powerful day that was Lydia & Jon’s wedding. Their wedding day was not only a celebration of an all-consuming love, but also a celebration of life and family!

When Lydia & Jon announced their engagement, we have to admit, we did a little bit of a ‘happy dance’ in the hopes they might think of us to document their wedding celebration. When they did, we were over the moon excited! We planned a Skype date to talk about their hopes for their wedding photos and hear what type of Door County, WI wedding they were planning! Shortly before our Skype date, Lydia emailed to let us know they recently decided to have TWO weddings instead of one! As we continued to read, we discovered that Jon’s Dad, Paul, had been battling cancer and, as of very recently, things were not going as they would hope. It was Jon’s wish that his Dad would see him marry the woman of his dreams – the woman who he would spend the rest of his life with.

We quickly found ourselves in the air to Boston, almost in disbelief that Lydia & Jon’s wedding was just days away. We made the most of our few days in the area before their wedding and, on August 8th, we woke up feeling distinctly honored to capture the incredible day that was ahead of us. Nothing could have prepared us for the emotion we witnessed on this very special day. It was written on everyones faces. Joy. Sadness. Love. Jon brought his dad up the aisle moments before his soon-to-be wife made the same walk with her Dad, and it was as if every emotion was pouring out of his face. Lydia’s Dad, Cory, is a Pastor in Door County and his words & wishes couldn’t have been more perfect a he gave his daughter away to Jon. This was one of the many personal touches that made Lydia & Jon’s wedding so heartfelt and unique to the two of them.

In just a few short months Lydia & Jon planned a day filled with so much thought, you’d think they had been planning for a year! To touch on a few, Lydia’s gorgeous dress was custom-made from the same satin that both her Grandmother and her Mom, Darla, wore on their wedding days. The absolutely stunning veil that wrapped Lydia up belonged to Jon’s Mom, Kathy. We honestly couldn’t get over what a STUNNING bride Lydia was!! Her & Jon’s wedding was also made possible by the talent of many family members like the music played during their ceremony and sweet cookie favors awaiting each guest at their dinner table. :)

After lovely words from Cory, Lydia and Jon were ready to share their hand-written vows. Lydia’s vows were several pages long and, though she wanted to hold Jon’s hand, she also needed one hand to hold the vows and the other to flip through the pages. As if they weren’t a cute enough couple already, Jon made this possible by flipping pages for Lydia so that he could hold her hand too! Though very small, this little detail speaks volumes to the “team” that they are.

After portraits in the most romantic evening light followed by especially emotional first dances, Lydia & Jon had a surprise for Paul & Kathy, Jon’s parents, during the anniversary dance. They played his parents’ wedding song and, as Paul got up to dance with his wife, there were very few dry eyes in the room. This entire day was a beautiful example of the kind of love we all hope for, both from our family members and the person we choose to spend the rest of our lives with.

Lydia and Jon, we honestly cannot thank you enough for choosing us to capture such precious moments with the ones you love!!

Love, Kelsy & Butch

You both captured a day that all of our family will remember as we have chosen joy!! We are so happy for our son and our new daughter in law. Lydia looked incredibly beautiful and so happy. Jonathan, so handsome and spell bound when he saw Lydia for the first time.Seeing Lydia wearing a dress with such meaning and then my veil brought back a wonderful day for Paul and I 34 years ago.

    You both were amazing! Most of the time we never new you were there! Thank you for your professionalism , kindness and compassion. You captured true young love , family love and enduring love of a lifetime on film!
    With gratitude , Paul and Kathy BugliReplyCancel

The day went by so quickly, it is a joy to be able to re-live it over and over again through your art. Thank you! And, as Kathy has stated, you did it all with professionalism. Even so, you felt like part of our family which was just another reason this day was so filled with joy and love.ReplyCancel

  • Christina S - This was such a special and emotional day. Everything was utterly beautiful and gracefully done. I am so happy for you, Lydia and Jon, and wish you many happy years together!

  • Nathan Todd - Congratulations! The pictures look wonderful!ReplyCancel

  • Ginger Ostrowski - Beautifully done!
    I have looked at these more than once and I can not stop the tears from falling… if I’m not crying by the time I get to the shot of the MOB/FOB and Bride & Groom, presumably witnessing Mr. & Mrs. Bugli dance to their own wedding song, I start there.

    This is more than hiring a photographer to take pictures at a wedding… this is inviting someone with more than a camera to witness, become part of, and describe what they are seeing to the blind. And you have done this amazingly.ReplyCancel

    not mix very well, but the pictures brought joyful emotions.ReplyCancel

  • Jeff Buczek - What a beautiful day and great photos to remember it by.ReplyCancel

  • Noreen - What a special day in more ways than one. So great to see those special moments made into memories for all there and the ones viewing these pictures.

Proud Parents, Beautiful Bride, amazing testimony to a forever love that is blessed by our Heavenly Father. Cory and Darla, you are so precious and you’ve loved that little girl and taught her thru your example the beauty and joy of a Christ centered marriage. Can’t wait to see the photos from Round Two next summer. For now, yes, keep looking. Keep remembering. Keep telling the beautiful story. Keep smiling and keep laughing. God is good. God bless you.ReplyCancel

  • Beth Barfoot Trice - Thank you to Kelsy & Butch for these remarkable pictures of a remarkable couple, documenting a remarkable event, which also fulfilled the wish of a remarkable man.
    Thank you to Lydia & Jonathan for their teamwork (Villanova O-line & lawyerly organizational training in evidence!) for making the many decisions necessary to create this beautiful wedding & to the numerous members of their team: the Barmakian jewelers, the stationer, the calligrapher, Michael’s Harborside Restaurant, the seamstress, the hairdresser, the florist, the violinist, the flutist, the DJ, Ely’s Farm, Bucks County, PA “pork products” maker, the design & crafting talents of Lydia, Kathy, Darla, & friends, and to Tiffany, the Sangria “Signature Drink” mix-master, the chef, & the wonderful servers of the Black Swan Country Club! I think the only profession missing from this list is a candlestick maker! You are all fairy godparents!
    You have captured the many precious moments of the manifest love we were so privileged to witness: grins walking back down the aisle, the gauntlet of bubble-blowers, Jonathan fanning out his beautiful bride’s & mother’s veil, Lydia receiving a kiss from Paul, the first dance (nice dip, Jon!), Will eating (finally, FOOD!), Olivia admiring high-heels (she can’t wait!), and most precious of all, my sister dancing with her handsome son & then with her husband, my third brother. It was a holy moment of grace, & proof that, with family, no one is, was, or ever will be, alone.
    Over 34 years ago, when Mother & Dad met Paul over dinner at Beaumont Drive, PA, Mom had a private moment with Kathy at the kitchen sink, which is where our most significant conversations occur. Mom admonished Kath to “not mess this up,” because she astutely (as usual!) recognized that this guy was special – a keeper. Thank goodness Kathy heeded (for once!) Janet’s wisdom. The Barfoots were a wonderful family before, but they became a great one when Paul joined it! And now Jonathan has brought Lydia to us – how fortunate for us! May their marriage be a partnership of equals in a life together as joyous as Kathy’s & Paul’s. Love you all!ReplyCancel

  • Valentina - That very first image with the veil is incredible!! Wonderful job :)ReplyCancel

  • Erin - Absolutely stunning. Lydia, I’ve never had the opportunity to meet you but I know your dad well from work at the hospital. I am so happy for you and your new husband and I wish you years of happiness together. Your photos are so precious…and made me tear up!
    Cheers to the bride and groom!ReplyCancel
