Aaron + Tiffany | A Midwest Backyard Wedding.

Fresh-cut grass, one cold beer
Thank the Lord I am here and now, here and now
Summer dress, favorite park
Bless your soul we are here and now, here and now

I’m wide awake
So what’s the point of dreaming when your life is great?
Celebrate the feeling

(Oh) can’t complain about much these days
I believe we’ll be okay
Oh oh o-oh oh, oh oh o-oh oh
Wanna scream it out, I believe we’ll be okay

Sun-kissed skin on my lips
Thank the Lord I am here and now, here and now
Fireflies after dark
Bless your soul we are here and now, here and now

We’ll be okay. We’ll be okay
Can’t complain about much these days
I believe we’ll be okay

- Oh Honey, “Be Okay”

When you marry your best friend…that one person in your life who gets you…whose eyes become your gravitational pull and your light and your home. When all those invisible barriers which we put up to protect our hearts come crashing down and we find love, pure and simple

everything becomes okay.

Not necessarily easy.

Or even perfect.

But rather a deep knowing that when life gets a little messy,

you’ll be standing hand in hand

together.

And that makes everything better.

 

Tiffany and Aaron are one of those magnetic couples, woven with grounded fibers but hearts alight with dreams.  Their wedding day marked the summer solstice celebration — a literal day of sunshine in between weeks of rain — and the five year cancer free anniversary for Tiffany. In a private backyard ceremony they exchanged promises rooted in struggles and victories, devotion and hope; and later, they danced beneath the brightly colored flags that had once been her head wraps. The air sizzled with a joy that reached the stars until it seemed the orbs of light themselves would burst, and feet were light while music drifted on the breeze. The hours of celebration could not have been more delightful.

Thank you, Tiffany and Aaron, for sharing your light. Thank you to your family and friends for welcoming me, thank you to Nicole for bringing your camera and creative eye as my second, and thank you to Tiny Devotions for celebrating this most amazing story as well.

Cheers to life,

love,

and being okay :)

Love. Pizza. And a Canoe. | A Wisconsin Story.

your house that sits behind me
is covered in ivy green
the windows that we watch from
are old and chipping at the beam

it takes me away

-Milo Greene, “1957″

Jessi + Sean are two people who have a way of capturing the sunshine…genuine, kind, and lovely, it was impossible not to instantly adore them.  For their Spring engagement session we met at their home, the place where all stories begin, and laughed and caught up on all things life while they made pizza and explored the backyard, and even adventured to the nearby river.  It was a delightful evening with an even more delightful couple, and I cannot wait to celebrate in their just-around-the-corner wedding day!

one frame | in the music.

When the sun lightly kisses the horizon,

and the sounds of merriment flit across the field,

the heat of day from the skin still glowing…

she turns her head

and in one frame

you

see

music.

A is for Awesome | Lifestyle Child Portraits.

Everything is awesome.

- The song that is still stuck in your head if you’ve ever seen “The Lego Movie”

When you let a child just play, show you the ropes instead of trying to lead them, and try to see the world through the simple magic of their eyes…

it’s awesome :)

(Thanks, little buddy, for always being so willing to play with me :)

In The Light On The Field | An Evening of Soccer.

Football is the ballet of the masses.

-Dmitri Shostakovich

One day, on a whim, I took my camera to my daughter’s soccer practice.  The day was coming to an end and the air was warm — it was one of those evenings where all seemed right with the world and everyone’s hearts and souls were filled and content.  As I played with the light through my lens, smiling at the giggling girls who liked my hat and glasses and boots and wondered aloud what grade I was in (high five for that, by the way) I found myself in awe of what I noticed before me.  We equate sports with speed and strength, aggressiveness and body gear, but what I saw was fluid and graceful.  A powerful dance in the light on the field swirling to the music of childhood and happiness, movements performed without thought but through instinct and the love of just being.  Of moving.  Of breathing in the evening air and finding your place between the rays of light.

Of knowing life is good :)
