Bartolotta Wedding Photography at the Grain Exchange – Anastasia & Bill!

Anastasia and Bill’s big Greek wedding was a blast, start to finish.

We are always grateful when given the opportunity to shoot at Annunciation Greek Orthodox Church.  It’s architecturally stunning and astonishingly intimate for a space that holds many guests.

The beauty of an Orthodox Greek wedding ceremony deserves it’s own paragraph.  Between the vibrant colors, the pungent aromas and the ethereal prayers, it is a transformative experience.

Set at the classic Wisconsin Club and beautified by Gregory’s flowers, it was the perfect atmosphere for both an elegant meal the raucus party that followed.  If we didn’t know better, we would think Anastasia and Bill invited only the best dancers of their family and friends.  The dance floor was rocking non-stop.

It’s really not too surprising when there was so much to celebrate!

Holiday Lites Shine Bright In Miller Valley – Corporate Photography & Videography!

RS Main

Ten years ago Miller Brewing Company reintroduced holiday lights back to Miller Valley after a 50-year hiatus. I remember as the Light Show Committee sat around a large table in our corporate pub brainstorming a variety of themes, when suddenly the simplest of concepts took on a new life with a new spelling … Holiday Lites. It could not have been more perfect.


Of course the shows have had their variations over the years. At first, it was for employees only. We had ice sculptors, magicians, celebrities and food vendors on the street in freezing-cold temperatures. A few years later, we opened up the concept of Lite Shows to the public in a small capacity that took a few years to grow in popularity. But slowly and surely they began to grow. We incorporated Windell Middlebrooks, the High Life Delivery Guy, and even the Girl In The Moon into our Holiday Lites show skits in recent years. The most impactful addition, however, has been to choose a family on each tour throughout the evening to “flip the switch” and start the show. That simple act is absolutely priceless and it shows on every face as they head off to find those glorious beer samples that await them after the tour (if 21 or older, of course).


Never in my wildest imagination did I think Holiday Lites would become what it is today … tradition. Not only is this something that we as employees look forward to and attend every year, but thousands in the community do, too, as they visit multiple times throughout a single season. I have received testimonials from people who visited Miller Valley to view the lights as young children with their parents in the 1950s and ‘60s. Those same people now return annually with wives, husbands and children of their own to carry on the tradition. Of all the gifts I could think of to share with this community–that one fills my bucket up to the brim. I myself am a wife and mother to a family who attends annually, just like the rest of the community, to share a traditional holiday moment together and just … enjoy.

War Memorial Wedding Photography – Stephanie & Chris!

Stephanie and Chris are a couple that likes to have fun and doesn’t mind looking silly in the process.  In other words, they are a Front Room kind of couple!

Bright pink and black details were bold and stylish statements from this bold and stylish bride. Turns out she made the right choice to go bold – the cheerful color was matched by the bright personalities of Stephanie, Chris and all their friends and family.

With a heat wave descending upon their outdoor ceremony & reception at War Memorial, Stephanie & Chris played it cool and moved their reception indoors which turned out to be a fabulous choice. The heat eventually died down so people were able to go outside to enjoy the evening overlooking the lake when they needed a break from dancing. All in all, it was a perfect day.

Congratulations Stephanie & Chris!

Wisconsin Wedding Photography – Madeleine & Nico!

Carl & Niki are both experienced road-trippers so the drive up to Ripon was nothing for these two for Madeleine & Nico’s big day.

We love weddings that are planned to fit a couple – not made to fit the mold of “what a wedding should be”. This day was full of personality, special touches and unique locations that were important to these two love birds.

The ceremony featured Nico singing an original song to his bride on their wedding day. The cocktail hour was in an art gallery which had been adorned by art made by family & friends. And the reception was at Roadhouse Pizza where the couple has many memories stemming back to the beginning of their relationship.

It was a gorgeous day full of love and inspiration. We hope every bride & groom have as much love surrounding them on their wedding day as Madeleine & Nico did!

Milwaukee Engagement Session – Melissa & David!

Carl had a blast taking Melissa & David to a bunch of totally different locations for their engagement session earlier this year! It’s fun to see how a change of outfit and location can change the overall feel of a session. We love that Melissa & David went casual for one set of locations and a little more formal for the rest. And wait until you see the set of art from their wedding – it was amazing!
