So it isn’t everyday that I have a post related to MY FAMILY when it comes to weddings and engagements. My baby brother is getting married to Karen, a pretty awesome girl. Joe and Karen met at the U of W at Milwaukee. Joey proposed to Karen at my parent’s house using a guitar case he bought for a guitar Karen’s mom once played. They are two pretty special people and we couldn’t be more thrilled to welcome Karen into our family. I was 17 when Joseph was born and can remember the day quite vividly as someone sent me flowers (in high school) at the school office and when I got to the hospital later that night there he was with a MASSIVE HEAD OF HAIR. Oh if only I could have been a professional photographer then and captured that crazy haired little boy. I was taking pictures at that time and do have some awesome ones of him that I’ll post a bit later. I really love how my brother is himself around Karen. I can’t wait to watch the two of you grow in your relationship. Congratulations!
We shot in Wisconsin (of course!) so there was snow (yes, this was in late March, surprise). It was a nice visit and Wisconsin is beautiful despite being in the frozen tundra. My family home has about 5 acres of wooded, snowy wonder. Many memories have been made back there. It was a great joy to capture them even though it was freezing cold.
