Autumn comes every year to remind a lot of us why we love living in Wisconsin so much. So its no surprise that it is by far the most popular time of year for couples to get married in the midwest. Amanda and Eric's cozy fall wedding was a magical copper and bronze tone wonderland. Terrace 167 was the perfect host to their ceremony and a feast shared among friends and family from both near and far. A first look, wandering around the woods, so many fantastic deserts, and a endless night of love and laugher. Thank you so much for allowing me to be a part of your special day.
Bayview Printing Co is a cool shop on Howell Ave. that offers the most unique stationary in Milwaukee. If you're not familiar with what letterpress is, you've got to check out the shop, but basically you set your letters (individually!) into a frame, roll on some ink, and press it on your paper. One at a time. Over and over. Definitely triple check your spelling before you start ;) Sure, you could easily have someone create a digital version of the look and hit 'print', but nothing compares to the 'feel' of something truly handmade.
Ashley, the owner, is all about community. She is the 3rd owner of the shop that has existed in someway for over 100years. The ink they use, its made right here in Bristol, Wisconsin. Paper? Locally sourced from all over the state. But best of all, they offer workshops and printing parties to the public.
It was a pleasure to photograph the shop and staff for their new website (coming soon) and social media. Headshots and editorial styled portraits are fun, but spending a few hours learning about this gem in the heart of Bayview was just as awesome.
Does your business have a story to tell? I'd love to help you tell it.
Wake up before sunrise for a photoshoot? Heck yeah!!! Payton and Brad were awesome enough to meet me on a absolutely beautiful fall morning in Port Washington's marina right next to Smith Brothers Coffee (because at 6am there must be coffee). We enjoyed a lovely walk along the rocks while the morning sun rose.... And then Brad surprised Payton with a piece of wardrobe from the day they met.
