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

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

It couldn’t have worked out more perfectly. All of the Majeski “kids” were back in Door County visiting their Mom & Dad from the states they now call home, and we also had a trip to the county planned to celebrate a family birthday. We were so thrilled when Marnie reached out to us to plan a family portrait session!! Butch has known their family since grade school and the two of us had the pleasure of photographing Marnie & Wes’ wedding in Boulder years ago, so we were excited to get them in front of our cameras again. This time, on their home turf – their beautiful property near Jacksonport, WI! Surrounded by rolling hills & gardens, amazing landscaping, and even a handful of farm animals, it was the perfect setting to walk around and photograph such a beautiful family. Thank you for having us, guys! :)

Love, Kelsy & Butch

Heidi and Maxx are approaching their third wedding anniversary, and we were thrilled when they reached out to us to celebrate a mini portrait session! These two are super cute & playful together and while their session was just last Thursday, we couldn’t wait another day to share their images!

Happy Anniversary, you two :)

We had the absolute pleasure of photographing this beautiful family of three when Maggie was a brand new bundle, and just over a week ago she celebrated her first birthday! With big blue eyes that light up for her Mom & Dad, this little lady is an absolute DOLL!! Kim had fun shopping for the most darling little dress for Maggie to wear and, because everyone is more comfortable in jeans, she slipped into a cute little nautical look for the second half of her session ;) Highlights from Maggie’s one year session include, but are certainly not limited to: Daddy chasing her through the halls and into her room which brought about the BIGGEST smiles & giggles, playing with Mommy’s pretty statement necklace, and giggling even more when they brought out her talking teddy bear!

Kim & Stew – thank you both so much for inviting us over for a visit!! We loved photographing adorable miss Maggie and can’t wait to see you three again soon :)

xoxo, Kels & Butch
