It’s not every day you are asked by a fellow photographer to photograph their intimate Door County, Wisconsin wedding. It’s not every day that, that photographer is one of your own. This past October I had the great pleasure of photographing Emma’s wedding in Door County, Wisconsin. Emma and Jeremy came in to my life a few years ago when Emma responded to an ad I had posted looking for an intern. We met, we clicked and now she’s been one of my right hands for a few years. Their wedding was a simple affair and so them. Their engagement was secret and so was their wedding. They didn’t want to bring attention to themselves so Emma planned their wedding day entirely in secret with only me and a few family members knowing. It was October, the leaves were changing, the temperature was brisk. If you wanted a fall wedding, this was the day to do it. (Fall if my favorite time of year and I honestly don’t get to shoot enough weddings in the beautiful fall weather. Hint! Hint!) They booked a cute little cottage in the small fishing town of Fish Creek, Wisconsin to getting ready together in with just their siblings. Emma’s dress vintage, along with her gloves. Her bouquet was made of flowers from her late father’s garden, dried and aged for her wedding day. Midday we headed off for portraits and an intimate ceremony planned inside Peninsula State Park. Honestly, it was perfect. It was emotional. It was amazing. They ended their day with the sun setting in the park, for a moment, it was just the two of them as I scrambled across some rocks in the middle of an ice cold lake (nearly falling, mind you) while what I thought heard was Emma laughing at me, instead when I turned around I found Emma crying. In that moment, I knew the day was perfect and I was happy to capturing it. Not to mention, the day ended with a fish fry. Now go hit play and scroll.
MEGAN. You are a genius. These are insane. The shot of her coming down the stairs with the speckled light, the bw close-up of her arm, the fall colors, the emotion, YOUR EDITING. I love your work so incredibly much.
Thank you, Megan!! I was just thinking about looking through these photos again. You did such an incredible job with our wedding, we couldn’t have had anybody else. I am so so in love with these!
perfection, start to finish.
This is really something special. Wow.
The portraits with the fall colors are stunning. Well done!
I just want to dive into these images and live. Beautiful work!
These are incredible!! Love the vibe that Emma and Jeremy had for their wedding. So good!
Stunning. You so beautifully captured the intimate and candid moments. I have known Emma and her family for years as their neighbor. Emma has become a remarkable young woman and she has found her love and they celebrated it so wonderfully and intimately. I know her father, Bob, was present in spirit. Megan, job well done. You are an amazing artist.
