My Beautiful Sister's Wedding...

Posted by Jac | | Posted On 30 July 2009 at 9:44 AM

My sister and her amazing new husband got married on the Fourth of July. Gloss had the amazing pleasure of shooting her wedding with the great help to our Associate Photog. NikkiN.

Enjoy the Sneak Peeks...
There were tons of shoe shots not only because us ladies love our shoes, but they were Kate Spade... I mean, HELLLLO!

Outside the beautiful Fond du Lac church, showing off her kicks.

Celebrating with some champie in the limo.

I am so glad we were blessed with great weather and a great limo for transporting this bunch everywhere... because fortunately & unfortunately with a Matron of Honour as a photographer (me), I kinda... had our location shooting all picked out: OshVegas sign, a Carnival, & the Country Club grounds....... perfect!

Yummy... cotton candy.

Both avid golfers, so it only made sense to give their guests custom golf balls as 'thank yous' for attending their wedding event.

I saved the best 'Photo with a Story' for last...
So you know how everywhere you are seeing this trend of the Bride & Groom having crazy dances at the reception or down the aisle - as seen on YouTube and other outlets...
Well they did it! -and a month before it was the IT thing to do.
Anyways, they started out with a beautiful love song for their first dance... then all of a sudden the music cuts - Bride throws Groom to the floor - guests are confused - then the beat.... Michael Jackson!!! - They had a whole routine ... it was the COOLEST!!!
I totally recommend YOU to do this at your wedding... I think every guest is still talking about it:)
We love you so much Niki & Ryan!
Best Wishes,

Eric's Sr.Shoot

Eric was a lot of fun shooting... He seriously made me laugh thru the whole session... very funny dude!

We had a great session shooting in-studio and on-location in the back of our studio... Our studio backyard is awesome for switching up a simple shoot and giving guy graduates a lot of options when proofing, yet not wasting their precious time during the shoot.

Enjoy a few of my favorites!

Marcus&Brooke - Botanical Gardens - 24July09

Posted by Jac | | Posted On 28 July 2009 at 1:56 PM

Let's see...

Last week's wedding: Soccer players

This week's wedding: Basketball Players

Have I turned into an Athlete Wedding photographer? haha ... I am totally digging the athletes... they are always totally up for anything, which is so awesome... (I almost wrote, 'wicked awesome'... is that word still 'in' or is it sooooo Boston 2008?)

I had so much fun shooting Marcus & Brooke's wedding last weekend at the Botanical Gardens. They are such fun people!!!

Enjoy the Sneak Peeks...

Shoes. Shoes. Shoes. I love me my shoe shots...

So funny... one of the groomsmen taking a power nap before the ceremony. Too much fun the night before? Or just resting up for an incredibly fun evening?

Awww... love.

Awww... love even more. Caught this cute moment of the two of them with their son, Brendon. Brendon was suppose to be the ringbearer and come down the aisle in a cute lil' wagon..... he was not feeling the wagon portion of the ceremony & the nanny ended up carrying him down... super cute!
OK... so I am working with Basketball players... so I thought this was just perfect! The guys were giving me a hard time about how they needed to do all this stretching before this shot... blah... blah... I won... and look how amazing... I loved you guys! You rocked! :)

Gallery Night... tonight @ Gloss...

Baby G...

I had the great pleassure of photographing Baby G's 4mos. session recently. He was so adorable... as was his mommy and daddy!

I look forward to watching Baby G grow with our GlossBebe collection, a funky version of a baby plan to watch baby grow in it's first year.


Beach Shoot... fun times!

Posted by Jac | | Posted On 23 July 2009 at 2:56 PM

Awwww... so much fun with the Meinecke girls as always:)

We switched things up a bit and went out to the beach for some sisterly lovin'... It was the cutest time walking down to the beach, as each girl grabbed one of my hands.

It is so amazing how time flies, as I met both these little ones just as babies, and have photographed them growing into such wonderful little girls... It is an honor to have them as subjects and their parents as clients.


I started crying after I got done processing this image. It is so beautiful.

Happy Birthday Lucy!!!

Lucy had her One Year Birthday session at Gloss... and boy was it a party!

I can't beleive how quickly time flies... Lucy has done our Gloss Bebe plan the past year. It was a great experience to capture those awesome moments of growth through baby's first year.

There were definitely a few moment through the shoot I was singing to myself, 'It's my partay and I'll cry if I want to... cry if I want to' ... haha... so cute! Overall the shoot was a total success with a birthday cake... yummy!

I had the great pleassure of shooting Jon&Anne's beautiful wedding last Saturday at the Milwaukee Club... which is an insanely gorgeous venue!

This wedding was such a blast, especially with a Bride & Groom that were up for anything when it came to making some fab-u-lo-so wedding shots, as you'll see below with some amazing Sneak Peek shots...


I am so obsessed with the photo above and the photo below... awww... gorgeous!!!
Yummmm... mouth-watering hors'deurves and a lot of champie.... perfect. I loved Anne showing off a piece of rumaki!!! I must note: my newly found WFB BFF (Whitefish Bay Bestfriend Forever)(this title bc we found out later during the wedding we are literally neighbors in WFB)... haha, Steph, is also pictured above with Anne&Jon... just wanted to give her a quick shoutout.
1st Dance... so special!
Love this mirror shot!
Thanks Jon&Anne- can't wait for our doggies to have a playdate real soon:)
