Pfister Wedding

My first Navy Officer Wedding!  And a Pfister Wedding at that!  How exciting to be able to capture something that is engrained into who the people are!  This couple came all the way from Virginia to get married back where they grew up in Milwaukee, WI.  The day started at her family home. The house was an amazing and intimate backdrop for their photos. The home was remodeled so extensively through the years you could tell it had a lot of history for the family.  To tie things in even more, the brother prepared the brides makeup. The bride was so gorgeous.  Carrying herself so well down the isle, you could really tell that she use to do pageants previously.  The couple had wedding planner, Elizabeth, from Evenement on their schedule the whole day. Shout out to her!  The ceremony was full catholic mass at the Basilica of St Josephat.  Their ceremony included a symbolic decorative chain that symbolized the unity of their marriage. Their family members placed this decorative chain on the couple.  At the end of the ceremony the couple had a sword ceremony where the father of the groom gave the final right of passage.  After visiting a few different places in the Milwaukee area we moved our way down to Pfister where we ended the night.

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. Please contact me if you have any further questions. I am based out of La Crosse, Wisconsin but am more than happy to set up a phone call or skype if you are in another location.
