Rustic Barn Wedding in Dover, Wisconsin
The Farm at Dover is a beautiful and unique venue with a big red barn and absolutely gorgeous outdoor spaces. The perfect venue for Kaitlyn’s wedding vision. What I love most about Kaitlyn and Rocky’s love story is that they were brought together with the most perfect timing.
Meeting by happenstance, they weren’t quite ready for each other or love yet. Kaitlyn moved to a new city, finished grad school, followed her passions, while keeping in touch with Rocky. When you start doing what you want and fulfilling yourself that’s when we become capable of attracting love. Before long, they were planning their lives together.
Casual and carefree was what they wanted in a venue. Something that was different from the traditional venue and really spoke to them. Many personal details were incorporated into their day, including love quotes that resonated with them and their relationship.
It also ended up being a beautiful day, the chance of rain and storms disappeared as the day went on. Later that day, the sun peeked out for a few photos too. Overall, it was the perfect day.

Kaitlyn and Rocky, it was an honor to capture your wedding celebration. I wish you a lifetime of happiness together.

Back by popular demand! I have been asked a few times if I’m having any Fall Mini Sessions so I decided to set aside two dates this Fall for some mini sessions. I have chosen two locations, one in the suburbs and one in the city to try to accommodate everyone. This will be such a beautiful time of year with the leaves changing colors and is a great opportunity to get some updated family photos for your walls or holiday cards.
Here are the details:
September 26th will be held at the Morton Arboretum in Lisle, IL. Available times are:
4:30, 5:00, 5:30, 6:00, 6:30.
October 4th will be held at Museum Campus in Chicago, IL. (This location may change) Available times are: 4:30, 5:00, 5:30, 6:00, 6:30.
A session fee of $75 is due to reserve your date and time along with a signed session agreement. This post will be updated as session times are filled.
These sessions are perfect for small families, children, and couples. If you have a larger family (5+ people) you may want to purchase two slots back-to-back to allow for more time.
On Sunday, May 3rd I will be having mini sessions at Lilacia Park in Lombard, Illinois! Come get your pictures taken among 700 lilacs and 25,000 tulips during their peak blooming time <3
Sessions will be 25 minutes long and you will choose 5 images from your session to keep along with a print release for $75. Available times are: 4:00, 4:30, 5:00, 5:30, 6:00. Contact me ASAP for details on how to reserve a session time for you and your family!
