Congratulations to Hailey and Dave on their beautiful wedding. The wedding ceremony took place on July 30, 2011. Starting with images of the bride getting ready and a fashion shoot with the bride in the beautiful setting of her parents home. Dave and Hailey selected wedding colors of blue, pink and lime green. Their invitations, flowers and decor were amazing. The wedding ceremony was at Hales Corners Lutheran Church and the reception was at The Hyatt Regency Milwaukee Hotel. Everything was beautiful and the day was perfect. After the wedding ceremony the bride and groom wanted to sneak away with us in our vehicle for some outdoor wedding pictures in the third ward in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

We had the honor of photographing Ryan and Angie’s wedding on April 10, 2010 in West Bend, Wisconsin. Such a sweet and adorable couple. We had such a great time, the day went perfect. The ceremony took place at St Francis Cabrini in West Bend Wisconsin by Father Jeff; and the reception was at The Quilted Bear in Germantown, Wisconsin. The bride and Groom will be receiving a custom designed hand bound Italian fine art book from Italy. These albums are the original books and are all designed one of a kind. If your looking for your wedding photographer for your wedding; you will want to see these books in person and hold one in your hands. They are very high end books ordered direct from Italy.

This is another of my favorites from 2009 from Michael and Erin’s wedding. The wedding ceremony and reception took place in West Bend, Wisconsin at their island off Cedar lake. Beautiful area for a wedding and great photo opportunity. I especially love the artwork Scott did on this one.
Here is another of my favorites from the photography workshop by David Beckstead back in September at the Milwaukee Art Museum. We helped David with the workshop. David is an amazing teacher, all about composition and light. Check him out if you ever have a chance. All three of the models did such an amazing job. Thank you again girls, you were all fantastic. The dresses were supplied by Zitas bridal. Thank you again Kelly for supplying the beautiful high end gowns; they all were were amazing.

Riu Ocho Rios Jamaica wedding pics of Joe and Cherise’s destination wedding.
The day after we arrived at the Riu resort in Ocho Rios Jamaica ; we went with the Bride and Groom and their family and guest to the Dunns River Falls to capture the memories for everyone as a keepsake. Was amazing to see and experience up close.

Congratulations to Jo’el and Alisha on their beautiful wedding. The wedding took place at Christmas Mountain in the Wisconsin Dells. It was such a beautiful and emotional ceremony. I couldn’t hold back the tears when Alisha’s Mom seen her in her dress that morning. Very emotional and a beautiful moment. And to surprise Alisha; her Mom gave her a special gift, a ring from her and her father. Another special surprise was to follow right before the ceremony. I’ll get to that later. 🙂
The couple choose to see each other before the ceremony so once Alisha was ready we drove her down to the Ceremony site to see Jo’el for a private meeting to capture their first look at one another in their wedding attire. Jo’el was set in position facing the lake at the ceremony site. Alisha walked up to him and tapped him on the shoulder. As he turned to see her for the first time in her wedding gown (looking like a princess), we captured the special moment from every angle from a distance; not disturbing their special moment. It was breathtaking. Jo’el picked Alisha up and twirled her around, it was like a scene from the movies. I couldn’t hold back the tears … it was a very emotional moment.
We gave them some alone time to talk and then got to take some fantastic images of the two of them. Later their family arrived for pictures; of course that meant more happy tears. It was so nice to finally meet the whole family. Everyone was so sweet; they made us feel like part of the family. The formals were all completed and then Jo’el and Alisha wanted to go downtown in the Dells for some great photo opportunity before the ceremony. One location was the upside down building … and then the coliseum. I’ll probably have to update this post on the exact names of where we went later. We had so much fun with the two of them and it showed they were having fun in the photos.
Once completed we had to get back in time for the ceremony. Now for the other surprise for Alisha from her parents. I knew about it in advance but promised to keep the secret.
To be continued …

View Joe and Cherise’s Wedding Album of their Destination Wedding in Jamaica
I wanted to post something for any wedding couples planning their wedding and all of our photographer friends. Scott and I just returned from Jamaica; doing a destination wedding. Something important I think couples need to be aware of if they are planning on just having just the photographer from the resort. Most times your only going to receive formals of your day with some pictures of the ceremony. Also the equipment is very important. On our recent trip to Jamaica, the Bride and Groom told us they had a photographer included but were planning on telling him they didn’t need him. We told the couple to tell the photographer to go ahead and still take the pictures. Why not; its more pictures for them. Well; the equipment he had was nothing special. To be honest, when we spoke to the wedding couple, Joe and Cherise recently and asked them about their pictures they told us they didn’t even bother picking them up. They weren’t impressed by him as well with his equipment or anything he did. They had 8 free 8 x 10’s coming and didn’t even what them for free.
This should at least give any upcoming wedding couples something to think about if your planning a destination wedding. You defiantly want to bring along your own professional photographers to cover your special day. When Ambiance Studios llc Photography shoots a Destination Wedding; the couple will automatically receive 3 days of coverage from Ambiance Studios llc Photography.
The Day Before, covering an intimate engagement session of the two of you and your rehearsal and dinner and some photos afterword’s of you and your guest . We also went to the Dunn’s River Falls with the wedding couple earlier in the day with all their family and guest. Capturing them going up the falls together hand in hand like a human chain. Adding that to their story into their wedding album. Priceless ….its a keepsake for all of their family and guest as well.
The Wedding Day, starts with you getting ready, all the details of your whole day from beginning to end, including a private session of the two of them for some fantastic images at sunset.
The Day After can be done at sunrise or sunset the next day; or 2 days later is sometimes preferred so your not getting up early the day after your wedding. The couple chose sunrise; these are some of their favorite pictures as well as mine. Then to complete this session Joe and Cherise jumped into the infinity pool. It was comical to watch about 20 by standers watching at 7:00 am in the morning … gasping …holding their hands over their mouths … their not going to jump into the pool and get her dress all wet before the wedding are they … not realizing that they were already married. They were the talk of the day; you could hear people talking about what they’d seen to other quest the rest of the day. The couple choose 2 images from the day after session / Trash the dress session for their thank you cards.
Scott and Cathy Ann Erickson of Ambiance Studios llc Photography will tell the whole story of your event, not just traditional pictures. Of course your family and friends will also want some special pictures of themselves, and that is included as well. There is much more to shooting a wedding then just the traditional pictures. With all the special equipment and gear, as well as lighting and techniques used are important; as well the knowledge of your photographers. We are always updating their knowledge and equipment to give you all the newest craze and technology available to our clients. We will also research the area for many different photo opportunity ideas to give you something extraordinary, above and beyond; telling your story so you can relive your wedding in much more detail.
Another fantastic idea; is we can print pocket sized mini albums that are identical to your wedding album and you can send them out to your all your guest, all your family and friends. Its a nice keepsake for them as well.
