CREAMERY 201 WEDDING | MADISON WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER
Chantel and Nolan and I have made so many trips together. I started by meeting them at Nolan’s proposal – which he hired me to photograph as a surprise to Chantel. Looking back this is one of those moments that starts a wild ride of moments that you couldn’t have possibly known.
From there, they knew – I had to photograph everything. Having me there was right. So I photographed their engagement session at Copper Falls State Park. We met up a few times to talk over details. And then I photographed their wedding. Their event was so carefully crafted – Chantel knew exactly what she wanted it to look and feel like, and there was no stopping that. But also, their rich back history has led to their families being absolutely overwhelmed with joy at their nuptials.
And it didn’t stop there.
Through the whole reception the entire room was brim full with excitement and love and joy and drinks and cake and all of the good things. It was filled with the things that mattered.
And nothing should have been different.
