SNOWY WAUSAU ENGAGEMENT ON FILM | JEN & ROB by Kelsy & Butch McCartney

You guys! We are giddy-excited to share Jen & Rob's engagement session with you!! These two are so full of JOY that it is impossible not to constantly smile and laugh when you're around them! Together, Jen & Rob absolutely shine. And even on a crazy foggy and snowy day at the top of Rib Mountain, they were two of the most adorable people we have ever photographed :) Rib Mountain is an especially meaningful spot for these two and we cannot wait to be a part of their ceremony in this very spot in August! Love | K&B

FILM LIFESTYLE PHOTOGRAPHER | ADORABLE LITTLE ELSIE by Kelsy & Butch McCartney

We love Sunday mornings with Britta, Lynden, Kilen & Elsie -- and Sadie too! We're super grateful to have photographed this growing family for the last couple years and always look forward to visiting their home for photo sessions. :) At 5 months old Elsie was the main focus of our latest shoot, but we really enjoyed stepping back and catching everyone loving on her too!! Britta & Lynden have the sweetest family and a beautiful home, which makes for extra lengthy sessions and lots of pictures because our cameras just love them! Love | K&B

MINNEAPOLIS LIFESTYLE SESSION ON FILM | LAURA & TODOR by Kelsy & Butch McCartney

We are doing a little happy dance around our sunroom as we prepare these images of Laura & Todor to share with you today!! Laura is a friend of ours who happens to be an amazing film photographer in the Twin Cities! We are constantly in awe of Laura's absolutely beautiful images and have somewhat adopted her as our little family photographer ever since our first session with Laura in 2010, which is something that we are so grateful for! ;) There is truly something to be said about choosing a photographer whose personality puts you at ease and who you can truly be yourselves around! And for us, that is Laura! Her approach to shooting a session is so relaxed yet fun and she has an energy that immediately puts you at ease in front of her camera. We knew that it was about time to update the photos on our website and there wasn't a hint of a doubt that Laura was the one we hoped would capture us on film :) As we started chatting and preparing for our session, it turned out that she & Todor were also hoping to be photographed by a film shooter! We were slightly nervous and super honored to hear that we would be photographing a photographer who we look up to SO much!! Laura is a huge inspiration to us and just thinking about the fact that she would be on the other side of our cameras filled us with excitement. Just a few days after Laura visited Wausau for our session, we headed to Minneapolis to meet Laura, Todor & their sweet pup Bianca. We had a blast photographing and chatting with them! Laura & Todor are both incredibly easy going and stylish, and the chilly temps made them extra cuddly which we thought was absolutely perfect :) Together, Laura & Todor love to see the world. Their travels are well documented and after seeing them cozy up together, it is easy to picture them strolling the streets of Paris or roaming around Todor's home country of Bulgaria! Photographing these two was an absolute thrill for us, as it's not every day we get to photograph the photographer who inspires us!! It makes us smile from ear to ear that we can call this adorable couple friends!

DOOR COUNTY ON FILM by Kelsy & Butch McCartney

Butch grew up in Door County and we always love our trips back to visit, whether it is to photograph some of our awesome clients or to enjoy a bottle of amazing wine & cookout on the Green Egg with Butch's parents! No matter the occasion that brings us back, it is usually a mix of work and play which we LOVE! Just last month we had a weekend off - slightly crazy for October, but we were determined to make the most of it and enjoy every second! :) After chatting with Anna, we decided it was the perfect opportunity to plan a weekend in Door County. Originally the two of us & our cute lumberjack husbands planned to do a bit of fall camping, but the weather forecast kindly suggested we would have a more comfortable weekend if we were to stay at Butch's parents' house ;) And so we did! The result was a weekend of non-stop playtime with coffee dates, grilling salmon & steaks, hiking along the beach of Newport State Park on a perfect fall day, being spoiled with massive breakfasts, and enjoying one final bonfire of the season complete with s'mores. We had the best time and really couldn't be more grateful for a sweet clients who turn into two of your favorite friends!

Cheers & happy weekend to you! Here's a look back at one of our favorites :)

Love | K&B

…of course we couldn't hike along a beautiful beach without capturing it on our iPhones too!! here are just a few instagrams from our weekend away :)

WE LOVE FALL | CENTRAL WISCONSIN by Kelsy & Butch McCartney

For the first time in a few years, we can truly say that we maximized every ounce of Wisconsin's beautiful autumn!! It's not quite over yet, but the leaves were being swept from the streets in our neighborhood today which really only means one thing...they're making room for -- dare we say -- snow! Truly though, when we think about the last month we can't help but smile.  A trip to Bayfield, so much fall color, new chili recipe's, watching Parker bounce around in leaf piles five times his size, butternut squash risotto (yum!), a few extra afternoon coffee's, dream book writing on an inspired Sunday, fall pontooning & picnicking in Door County, taking entirely too many pictures of Parker, a weekend away with friends for some much needed relaxation & laughter, sessions in dreamy colorful spots (hello Chicago skyline + Grandma's property!), yummy birthday cupcakes, and SO much more!! Without further ado, here's a little peek at our fall -- we hope yours has been just as lovely & yummy!! :) Love | K&B

...and a few instagrams to splash even more fall color onto this post!! our favorite, of course,  being the "flying Parker" photo ;)
