Shelby + Bryce | Okauchee, Wisconsin

Ooooh it’s been too long! I feel like I’m always saying that! But it has been a really long time since my last post! We are busy here with new ideas and exciting changes for HSR Photography, including a new name and look as we transition to Heather Roth Photography. Please stay tuned for all the details!

In the meantime, I have been so excited to post our trip to Okauchee, Wisconsin! People kept asking me where we were headed to shoot a wedding and all I could say was Wisconsin. I was completely embarrassed that I could not pronounce any of the town names, especially Oconomowoc! All those O’s! Ya know when you don’t know the right Spanish word and you just add an “o.” Comprendo?:)

Shelby and Bryce are so awesome in front of the camera! They have so many different looks and nail each one perfectly. They can be completely serious, then naturally transition to lovey-dovey, and then to all fun and smiles! Just the perfect way to be during a shoot, and exactly how we like to capture all the different emotions. If you would like to revisit their engagement session, click here!

So Ryan and I jumped in the car for the drive north, stopping at fun little antique malls along the way. After passing cool barn after another and flower-filled pastures, I was super excited to see what we had in store upon arrival! Shelby and Bryce planned the perfect spot for their ceremony – a place where Shelby grew up spending countless summers … Okauchee Lake! Perched directly on the water, the Golden Mast Inn is a neat little Bavarian resort where both the ceremony and reception took place. The ceremony was held out back underneath a gazebo facing the water. Guests were treated to a beautiful backdrop while watching the couple exchange their super unique vows — wow, those were from the heart!:)  One thing I really remember from the ceremony is when Shelby was getting ready to step out and walk down the aisle with her uncle. It’s like she stopped for a moment to take it all in — it was a beautiful pause. We got several images of her just looking at her guests and her soon-to-be hubby, while the guests returned the gaze just awwwwing. Loved that!

We are so excited for the both of you! AND we are so happy and honored you wanted us to be with you on your BIG day. THANK YOU!
