Destination wedding in Mexico

Scott and I just returned from Mexico from shooting a International destination wedding at Riviera Mia, Mexico.  We had a fabulous time photographing Sean and Jackie’s wedding. Their family and friends treated us like family. Everything was amazing.  Even the trip to Coco Bongo with everyone!  So much energy and excitement.  I can’t wait until I can post some images to share with everyone.  We did an after session with Sean and Jackie the morning they were leaving.  We got up early to meet them at the beach before sunrise and captured the most beautiful sunrise.

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.

Las Vegas, Nevada | Engagement session of Sean and Jacquelyn

Scott & Cathy, WI Wedding Photographers
Destination weddings, Engagement, Featured

We had the pleasure of photographing Sean and Jacquelyn’s engagement session in Las Vegas.   We were in Las Vegas for our WPPI | Wedding and Portrait Photographers International convention.

Sean and Jacquelyn both own pizza chains, they met in Las Vegas at a pizza convention and fell in love.  We felt it was the perfect setting to do their engagement session and to capture their Love Story.  We had so much fun with them; it was an awesome time!  I’m so glad I brought along an umbrella as it made for some really cool pictures.  Needless to say; they didn’t get as wet as we did but we all had such a great time together.  Jacquelyn and I even had fun making the guys stop at Tiffany’s and Company so we could look at all the shiny diamonds and jewelry; after all we were in Vegas and everything was was so shiny.

We can’t wait to photograph their destination wedding in Mexico in December.  Besides covering the Bride and Groom’s wedding day; Scott and I will also be photographing their rehearsal and of course an after session.  Plus some other exciting adventures with Sean and Jacquelyn and their family and guest.   Be sure to watch for the slide show to follow soon.

We just returned from our annual Wedding and Portrait Photographers International convention in Las Vegas, Nevada; celebrating their 30 year anniversary.  It was by far the best show ever.  Updating our equipment and knowledge on a regular basis is so important; plus hanging out with all the best photographers of the world.  Seeing all of our amazing photographer friends as well as making new ones; it don’t get any better than that.  I already miss them all so much!!

We have so many exciting things to tell you about, where do we start.

We found some new exciting products we will be offering and we can’t wait to show them to our clients.  Our Italian Fine Art books from Italy will now have even more options.  This is by far my favorite. I put in my pre-order and can’t wait to share.

Had a fantastic time photographing Sean and Jacquelyn engagement session on the strip in Las Vegas.  Its was beautiful; its where the couple fell in love and capturing their love in the same place was spectacular.  More to come on this … be sure to check back to see some of their images and their story.

A new book shipping from Italy this week; a 16 x 20 Italian fine art book with a Mirror Polished Stainless Steel Lazer Etched Cover.  This book will be heavy;  time to buy a bigger coffee table.   🙂

A new blanket option that every bride will want.  I can’t wait to get one for myself … LOVE THESE, so soft and cuddly.
