A photographer, Michelle Z from San Diego reached out to me. She needed a second shooter to shoot the wedding with her. Alex and I took photos and video at this beautiful wedding with even more beautiful people.  Everything was at the Villa Filomena in Milwaukee. The bride works for Asics shoes, where the groom works for the Secret Service.  They met in Washington, D.C. when he was on a run at an event when he saw this beautiful Asics worker and got the courage enough to ask her out on a date. Their love continued in different locations around the states until they nestled into Washington, D.C. They chose to get married back home in Milwaukee where family was.

Pizza, Coffee, and travel define my life. I believe in traveling often and experiencing new cultures and ways of life. When I travel I try to find amazing hikes, so you will see a lot of those in my blog posts! I also have a constant hunger for organic/farm-to-table restaurants. I love finding the little hole-in-wall places that only the locals know about! In the summer I love playing beach volleyball.

I live in La Crosse, WI to take care of my grandparents while I still can. Right now that gives me purpose. Eventually I see myself moving to a larger city with lots of hikes and outdoor activities to do. I want to live a life with purpose, constantly engaging people, growing and pushing forward.

I believe in documenting lifestyles and people. Each person has so many different experiences that has shaped who they are as a person. It excites me to go into a wedding day without knowledge of the family and see how each family operates, relates and connects.

About My Style

My style focuses on Elegant, Timeless, Documentation. With a mixture of documentary and traditionally posed pictures my editing style promotes a clear color photo that will last the test of time. I focus on capturing all of the moments and in between. I like photographing things as they “fall.” I believe that your wedding day is just like life; it’s imperfect. Having a relaxed and natural environment is necessary and will show in your photos. Because of this, I want to work together with you and your schedule to match our processes together. For both engagements and weddings I leave it to the clients to have first say on location and time schedule. I focus on a digital curation that you can truly be proud of. From there, I will make suggestions to tweak your schedule for a better photographic experience and outcome. Thank you for considering Boxcar Photography for your wedding.
