Ohhhh My. This was my first wedding off a big break for me and it got me so excited to be shooting again. Elopement or as I call it a Micro Wedding! A Micro wedding is like an elopement except you choose a venue and invite a small group of close people and still have a dress and photographer and details….does it get any better than that?

I felt immediately bonded with Luke and Ashley. I spoke w/ Ashley on the phone but the moment I walked in I felt so connected with her which made shooting and editing this wedding extremely fun and enjoyable for me. I was only contracted for three hours (micro wedding! savings!) but I felt like I was there for much much longer and I delivered to them a comparable amount of photos. win win!

Justin Trails is an amazing place nestled into some beautiful country outside of Sparta, WI which isn’t too far from home for me. Another reason to love it. But the beauty of this place never seizes to amaze me. I actually missed it when I arrived and felt like this day, although short kind of grounded me back to my roots. Barn weddings, wandering open fields of wild flowers.

The moment I got home I had to start editing so the turn around for this one was quick ;) but that’s what happens when I LOVE the couple and feel inspiration pouring out me! Enjoy this sweet day with this sweet and amazing couple!
