Milwaukee Urban Ecology Center Wedding Photographer | Amy & Jeff

Amy and Jeff live in Colorado, but chose to be wed right here in Milwaukee… and it’s no wonder, Milwaukee’s pretty super.

The outdoorsy, community conscious, and fun loving loving couple couldn’t have chosen a better venue for their special day than the Urban
Ecology Center on Milwaukee’s East Side.  It’s rustic elegance suited them well.

Amy works for B cycle in Boulder, and was really excited to check out the new station at Discovery World.  She and Jeff even let me 
chase them around the lakefront while out for a ride… I don’t know if it gets much cuter than a bride on a bicycle!

Ultimately, their day was quaint, beautifully detailed and perfect in so many ways.  
They were surrounded by the people that matter most, and I’m happy to have shared in their joy.

Congratulations Amy and Jeff!

“Austin loves Taylor” 4/13/2012 | Milwaukee Wedding Photographer

 

Taylor and Austin are the best.
Thoughtful, caring, sincere… and above all else, fun.

I remember when Taylor first told me about Austin.  They met, they clicked, and the rest is history (I get it, I’ve been there, that’s how true love works).
 And I’ve loved seeing how much joy it has brought to my dear friend.

They were technically married 2 years prior, as they were getting ready to welcome their beautiful son into their lives.  But Taylor and Austin love to party, so they recently celebrated their marriage publicly at a Friday the 13th, “Day of the Dead” themed wedding fiesta!  It was quaint, laid back, SO colorful, and amazingly charming… Almost as charming as they are.
~and the BYO tacos were the bomb~

I had a wonderful time celebrating with them and feel honored to have played a role in their special day.  I can’t wait to see them grow together.

(and I have never seen Taylor look more radiant)!

Congrats Tay and Austin!
