Courtney & Tanner’s Winter Log Cabin Engagement

Green Bay Wedding Photographer Green Bay WisconsinCourtney and Tanner’s engagement session was such a blast! When we started planning for it, Courtney knew she wanted a location that had a rustic feel to it, and after sharing a few samples, we settled on this log cabin location in Green Bay. A fresh layer of snow had just fallen and the day was bright and sunny. The cold temperatures required some layering up, but Courtney and Tanner had one another to keep warm. With a few car breaks for fingers and faces, we had a great opportunity to photograph throughout the space and capture cabins, evergreens, and lots of snow!

Courtney and Tanner have been together four years and have the sweetest little baby girl, Ainsley, and a snuggly fur-baby, Baxter. We are so excited to celebrate this milestone with them and look forward to photographing their reception next October!

Engagements: lauren & zach, green bay botanical gardens

I met with Lauren and Zach over drinks at Kavarna in downtown Green Bay, only to find out that’s where they had their first date nearly four years earlier. They gathered for tea which blossomed into a relationship built on so many things they share: biking travel, music, and spending time outdoors. Although their engagement session date predicted lots of rain, we ended up with a bright, clear day to walk around Botanical Gardens, take photographs, and chat about their wedding plans. We are looking forward to kicking off our 2018 season wedding with them at Meyer Theatre and Tundra Lodge this April. Best wishes and happy planning, Lauren and Zach!

Engagements: regan & zach, woodsy snow session

It’s hard to imagine that just a few weeks ago there was a fresh blanket of snow on the ground, and tiny, spiraling snowflakes falling overhead for Regan and Zach’s winter engagement session in Suamico. The evergreens were made even brighter by the precipitation, and although the wet snow made the cold day colder, Regan and Zach were happily teasing one another and laughing as we wandering through the woods.

The couple met three years ago after being set up by mutual friends. It’s not often we hear brides and grooms tell about romances that began with a blind date, and I think the success of their meeting has to do with how well their friends know them. Whether or not Regan and Zach knew what they were looking for, their friends knew what they needed. This one is a love story with a side of best-friendship. Congratulations, Regan and Zach; we can’t wait for your October wedding!

Engagements: cora & eric, winter cabin engagement

cabin-green-bay-winter-engagement-pictures-oneida-photographer-snow-wisconsin-woods-evergreens-plaid-1 cabin-green-bay-winter-engagement-pictures-oneida-photographer-snow-wisconsin-woods-evergreens-plaid-2I love changing seasons; it’s a distinct part of my personality. When it’s summer I want to be on a boat in the sun and when it’s winter I want to be snuggled with hot cocoa. This love for the changing seasons influences our photography, and all it takes is a quick scroll through our Instagram feed to see the crisp blues and warm sunset pinks of summer shift to the bright oranges and rich crimsons of fall, and then to the evergreens and creamy tones that color the world before the winter snow settles over them.

Cora contacted us from Madison to set up the session for their short visit to Green Bay. Eric was living in Colorado (where they would soon be settled together) and we found the perfect date that fit all our schedules. Cora and I brainstormed a few ideas to fit the rustic, woodsy look they were going for, and we settled on a spot with log cabins and pine trees. Since winter engagement sessions are all about the cozy factor, we even brought along a little hot chocolate to add to the wool blanket winter snuggles. Cora and Eric were so natural in front of the camera and just happy to be together. Congratulations, Cora and Eric! Looking forward to your wedding day!

Engaged: Nikki Loves Tom

I love our brave couples – brides who are not afraid of their dress touching the ground, grooms who think nothing of walking out into a field on a rainy day, and couples like Nikki and Tom who prepare to meet with freezing temps for some wintery engagement photos! A few days before Nikki and Tom’s engagement session, we were in contact about the weather: high of 7, snow. Usually we don’t keep our sessions on for that date if the temperature is below 20, but with this winter being so chilly at all times, any number without a negative sign in front of it didn’t seem so bad. Still, I would be in boots and a coat, with thirty shirts underneath; Nikki and Tom would be in their well-planned engagement outfits. She said it would be no problem and they weren’t worried. Sure enough, through wind and snow and cold, Nikki and Tom were laughing and smiling as though our high of 7 was a balmy Wisconsin 30.  Their courage paid off as we got the opportunity to create the perfect winter engagement photos including hot cocoa, a vintage sled and a cozy wool blanket.  We are looking forward to Nikki and Tom’s wedding coming up this fall; Congratulations you two!
