YMCA Camp Alexander Outdoor Wedding // Allicen + Zeb // Wisconsin Rapids

Brace yourself. You're about to be bombarded with the sweetest dog moments and the most gorgeous bride + groom portraits ever.
I couldn't have asked for a better way to kick off my wedding season. From our first meeting I knew this was gonna be a good one. Allicen and Zeb are two of the sweetest, most laid back people you'll ever meet. They made me and Hannah feel welcome all.day.long. I love couples that are partners and team mates. These two hunt and fish together and raise their pups and genuinely just have the best time with each other and their group of friends.
Now if you're in Wisconsin you know that we got hit with snowpocalypse about three weeks before this wedding. So I was a little nervous. But Wisconsin pulled out all the stops and gave me one of my favorite kind of days. Overcast and not too hot not too cold and some light rain in the evening. Not only that but Camp Alexander is my favorite venue in Wisconsin Rapids. It's gorgeous and right on the water and feels super laid back and cozy. So it was perfect for Allicen and Zeb. Everyone had a beer in their hand and dinner included the most bomb mac n cheese and the dance floor was insaaane (I might have done a knee slide because BSB was playing... whoops.). It basically felt like a very romantic, legit, grown up version of the last night at summer camp. I don't know if that makes sense to anyone else but it's the only way I can describe it.

I fully support anyone who forces their dogs to wear wedding attire.

These pictures of Karoo watching Allicen are hands down my favorite "getting into the dress" photos I have ever taken.

I'm sorry guys but Lou stole the show during the ceremony. Like best groomsdog. He's so proud it makes my heart hurt!

I honestly didn't even realize we took this many portraits... I just went nuts. Proof that Allicen and Zeb must like me a little bit or they're just the most accommodating and sweet people around.

Ok. Just another thing that made me cry... May 12th also happens to be Zeb's parent's anniversary. They celebrated 34 years of marriage and Allicen and Zeb surprised them with a special dance and their own cake to cut.

My feet hurt for about a week after this wedding. I am so so insanely grateful that these guys let me be a part of their day. And not only that but they, their families, and their friends made me feel so welcome and handed me drinks and food and danced the night away with me. I couldn't love this crew anymore. Zeb and Allicen - You two are the real deal. And I'm sorry but I expect you to call me up everytime you're back in Nekoosa. Take care of each other xoxo

Diana // Fitness Coach Brand Photoshoot // Madison WI

I got to run around Madison with this beauty last night.
Diana is my cousin and probably the first baby I ever held. She was one of the first seniors I photographed years ago. And as cliche as it sounds, I've watched her grow up into such an incredible badass woman and I couldn't be more proud. 

Madison Wisconsin Brand Photographer Chloe Ann Photography_0000.jpg

Let's go over just a couple of the things going on in her life - graduating with her masters, walking 500 miles across Europe, and moving to a completely new state. And in the midst of all of that she's found her passion. She lit up when she started talking about fitness, training, and helping others live their healthiest life. 
If you're lucky enough to be living out your dream, you know how exciting it is to talk to someone else who has found theirs. It's like a secret club or something. When Diana was telling me about her ideas and goals it was like "Holy crap. You found it too?! You found your thing!" And then you feed off of each other's excitement and energy. I mean that's the greatest part about meeting people who are living passionate lives. Your passions can be totally unrelated but you're still inspired.
After we got done with Diana's shoot we went and ate the best pizza ever (pesto, goat cheese, artichoke, and arugula for the win! you da real mvp Greenbush!) . And even though we're family and we've known each other our whole lives, it was like we were just getting to know each other. We talked deep about relationships and our families and our businesses and just life.

We popped into Alchemy for some beer (and water because balance amiright?!) and I'm not sure if there has ever been cuter pictures of someone drinking a pint. Also, apologies to the couple sitting next to us and the patrons outside who had to listen to us laugh loudly and be awkward.

Pictures that should be considered "outtakes" are always my favorites. They're the ones that tell the story.

I'm not sure how someone can make jumping in the air and handstands look so good. But God bless these are fantastic.

We're just over here patiently waiting for Nike to call us with our contracts....

I'm not just saying this because she's family, but if you were ever going to have a trainer you'd want it to be Diana. She's just so positive and bright and hardworking. She asks questions so she can listen to you. She is warm and encouraging without being fake. Like this chick is the real deal. I am so freaking pumped to watch her story unfold. She's gonna do big things. So be watching her. For real.>> Go check her out on instagram << and thank me later. 

Also I'm just putting this out there, but I loved this. I loved talking with someone about their business and their brand and figuring out a way to convey who they are, what they do, and who they want to attract through photos. So if you're looking for the least headshotesque pictures for your brand hit me up and let's collab. K thanks!

A // Minneapolis Boudoir Shoot

It's been a few weeks and I still can't get over these pictures.
Have mercy.
I drove 3 hours and then shot in a new space and it was challenging and amazing. It's easy to get caught up in the routine and go through the motions and stick with your go to poses. So it was great to push myself and really take the time to think about each shot and how the light was working. I got the chance to make some images that had been floating around in my head for a really long time. They're not all on here because some of my work is just for me and my subject. And I'm totally cool with that.
Also this girl is the sweetest and a super talented photographer and had the very best lingerie and gave me a bottle of whiskey. So yeah. I love her. 
And now some really fricken great pictures for ya.
