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.

Wisconsin Wedding photographed by Scott and Cathy Ann Erickson of Ambiance Studios; located in West Bend, Wisconsin.

We truly enjoyed photographing Dennis and Christine’s wedding.   I have to say; wow … Christine’s wedding dress was truly amazing!!  It was so like a celebrity style wedding gown.  The fact is Christine and Dennis totally reminded me of Eva Longoria and Tony Parker.   The resemblance was amazing.  We had so much fun; we already have plans to do an after session with Christine and Dennis.

The Ceremony took place at Mt Hope in West Allis, Wisconsin and the Wedding Reception was held at The Lake Front Brewery downtown Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

Everyone was so much fun and great to work with.  The day went perfect, from start to finish.   Here are a few of our favorites so far from the day.   Enjoy … and be sure to leave some comments for the Bride and Groom.  Check back soon, I’ll be adding a slide show real soon!!!

Wedding at Wisconsin Dells for Alisha and Jo’el by Ambiance Studios Photography

Wedding photographed by Photojournalist and Artist;  Scott Erickson and Cathy Ann Erickson of Ambiance Studios Photography from West Bend, Wisconsin.

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 …

Be sure to check back for the rest of the story  and for a special slide show.
