All I can talk about lately is how much I’m loving Apricot Lane Boutique! It’s seriously my new favorite store! They have the cutest, most unique clothes and everyone who works there is super nice! This boutique is such a great addition to the Green Bay area that I wanted to not only highlight some of their awesome outfits but also feature the wonderful people that work there! So all the employees, decked out in their best Apricot Lane apparel, met me at the beautiful City Deck of Downtown Green Bay and we explored all the wonderful little alleyways, side roads, and buildings downtown had to offer. We had so much fun and everyone was a blast to photograph! Of course, no photo shoot is complete without finishing at Hagemeister Park to hang out, chat, and watch the sun set over the Fox River.

Next time you are at Bay Park Square Mall, stop on by and visit the wonderful people at Apricot Lane! I’m sure you’ll find some awesome clothes and accessories you’ll love and you’ll leave the store as obsessed about it as I am!

Alexa and Dino first met in the winter of 2009 at a tennis formal for the University of Minnesota where they both attended. Dino, originally from Croatia, had been recruited by U of M to play for their tennis team. Even though Alexa was not on a team, she’s always open to trying new things and meeting new people so she attended the formal with a friend. To get the formal started, they used a fun little ice breaker to give everyone a chance to meet someone and get to know them. Each person was given a celebrity’s name and the goal was to find the other person who had your celebrity’s significant other. For Alexa, she was Heidi Klum and Dino was her Seal. They found each other and learned they had way more in common than a celebrity love match.

Soon after the formal they started dating. They enjoyed doing everything together. Whether they were eating sushi, going to comedy shows, or just working out; they loved being with each other. After graduation the two moved to New York City to start a life together there. And it was in their cozy New York City apartment where Dino proposed. Alexa still remembers it like it was yesterday, “It was April of 2014 and Dino made me a lovely dinner in our apartment. After dinner, he gave me this ornate book full of photos of us and messages of our journey together. Each page expressing his love for me. At this point, I still had no idea what was happening, I just loved the book so much! Then he brought out our favorite dessert and there was the box with a ring inside of it! I was so surprised! I loved how romantic and intimate it was.”

Between planning a wedding, moving from New York to Boston (Dino was just accepted to Harvard!!), and visiting Dino’s family in Europe, these two made a stop in Northeast Wisconsin for their Engagement Session! For our shoot, we explored the beautiful spots found alongside the Fox River at sunset in the city of De Pere. We walked up and down the trail, across the bridge, along the boardwalk and even checked out the adorable little Locktender’s House right on the water! Dino brought along his guitar because he is an incredible musician and serenaded us while we made gorgeous images. I loved everything about our session and I cannot wait for their Spring Wedding at the Botanical Garden next year!!

Huge thank you to Karly Cullen for Alexa’s hair and make-up and Apricot Lane Boutique for Alexa’s beautiful white dress!

Fresh Brewed Friday – My weekly “coffee date” with you all

Happenings: Photographed the wonderful Halla Family in Baird’s Creek to celebrate little Vivian’s first birthday! Even though it was super hot and humid, the little girls didn’t even notice and were still as cute as ever!

On Saturday, Kyle and I took a mini road trip and escaped to Point Beach overlooking Lake Michigan. I love the feeling of sand between my toes. It’s the most comforting feeling ever. My worries and stresses wash away when I’m at the beach. One day I’ll have my very own beach house and escape to it as much as possible.

Favre Weekend! Obviously, the city of Green Bay went crazy! Roads were closed and people partied all weekend in celebration of Brett Favre being inducted into the Packers Hall of Fame. I was just as excited as everyone else since I love Number 4 myself. We headed down to the Stadium and watched the induction with all the energetic fans and had a blast!

Photographed Becca & Matt’s Wedding at the Botanical Garden on Sunday! These two came all the way from Idaho to be surrounded by their closest friends and family and get married! It was such a beautiful day!

Photographed Sara’s gorgeous Senior Session Monday evening. She is so stunning, I kept thinking I was looking at a professional model instead of a high school senior! I wish I looked that good in high school!

Enjoyed some lovely trail time this week in between my huge editing schedule. My favorite trail day was Wednesday – it was completely empty, I listened to Sigur Ros on my headphones and a baby bunny followed me almost the whole time!

New Favorite: The MTV show Catfish! I recently signed up for Hulu Plus so I could watch shows on my laptop while I edit. I’ve been exploring all the different titles they have and I’m enjoying every single one. Right now, I’m absolutely hooked on Catfish. Seriously, how could people create these fake identities on the internet and stick to that lie for YEARS?! It baffles me but somehow I cannot look away!

Thankful: The hot and humid weekend! Usually I am not a fan of humidity but because it was so warm, it allowed us to have some much needed beach time. I’ll take that any day!
