SUSIE + SEAN - Geneva National Resort Wedding

If you like baller sunglasses, Dr. Seuss quotes and lots of sunshine, this wedding is for you. I absolutely LOVED this day. Susie and Sean are incredibly sweet, FUN people.

In mid-July, I traveled up to Lake Geneva, Wisconsin to photograph Susie & Sean's wedding. Yes, Wisconsin! You see, I met Susie when I studied abroad in Australia back in my college days, and I was PUMPED (!!!!!) when I heard from her a little over a year ago about shooting her and Sean's wedding. (Side note: I've had the privilege of shooting FIVE study abroad girls' weddings. A post commemorating that later...!) Susie & Sean got married at the beautiful Geneva National Resort on a breathtaking day.

As it always seems to be (lucky me!), I hit the jackpot with some awesome families. I already knew ahead of the day that Susie & Sean were gracious, kind people, but their families welcomed me with open arms as well and were SO kind throughout the day. Also, a funny side note: during Susie & Sean's portraits, we dodged golfers (still in their rounds) and LOTS of goose droppings. It was pretty hilarious, if you ask me. Always an adventure!

Sus and Sean, thank you so much for introducing me to Wisconsin! If it's anything like your wedding, I believe I'll be traveling back there again someday. : )

How sweet is Susie's nephew?!

And I love this one of Susie's niece watching her mama put on lipstick.

I love how we got Susie's niece to smile for a portrait by holding a stick. #alwaysthinking (yes, I just used a hashtag in a blog post... #addicted)

Handsome groom, beautiful bride... check!


Tea + lemonade = favorite!


Another favorite!

Maybe the best face ever during a cake cutting. : )
