Trying something new | Green Bay Senior Photographer

This year I'm adding a fashion magazine style option to my senior sessions (think Vanity Fair). The past few months I've studied up on new lighting setups, styling and posing techniques. But before I tried it on an actual senior client, I wanted to test it out. So I contacted Maria, a beautiful dancer I've photographed a number of times for Vibe Dance Center here in Green Bay. Maria is toying with the idea of modeling and when you check out her photos below, you'll quickly see how the camera loves her.  For a light and airy look, I had Maria wear a tulle skirt paired with one of her own tops. Hair and make-up was done by Dana Michelle. We also added a bit of air to her hair. I don't think I ever want to shoot long hair again without a fan!

It was fun to see how much the mood and feel changes with each location and lighting change!

Next, we played a little "simon says" of modeling and had fun with a ton of different looks. Maria's a natural.

For the last look, Maria wore some of her own clothes that had an edgier feel, so I lit it with some edgier lights. What a contrast to her first set!

This is a perfect add-on for a senior session (on location + studio)! Contact me to set up your session!

Kelsey and Jesse | Pamperin Park Engagement Shoot

I first met Kelsey when she was opening VIBE Dance Center roughly 3 years ago. We've worked together on head shots, studio shots and yearly photos of her various dance classes and competition teams. It's been so much fun to see her business grow.  Kelsey is a beautiful and kind young woman and I am so happy for her success.

Next week Kelsey and her long-time (11 years!) boyfriend, now fiance, Jesse are traveling to Mexico to get married! Last week, we did a quick engagement session for Kelsey and Jesse. One of the reasons it was quick was because it was FREEZING outside. The other reason is this cute couple is super easy to take photos of!

Beautiful Bride | Green Bay Wedding Photographer

Last week, my good friend and shooting partner, Mary Santaga of Mary Santaga Photography had the time of our lives at an amazing workshop called Walk Through a Wedding. Just as the title of the workshop implies, we got the chance to learn about shooting every aspect of a wedding day. The workshop was put on by the super talented husband and wife team Justin and Mary Marantz of Justin and Mary Weddings. Mary and I are dipping our toes into wedding photography (we work as a team) and this workshop ignited the fire in both of us! Here's just a sampling of bridal portraits I captured on the first day.
