About American Family

I photograph a lot of events, so walking into a room full of strangers and asking them to smile as I get up in their face and take their picture is nothing new.  I really enjoyed this particular event because everyone was really nice and super accommodating to my requests. American Family Insurance is a Wisconsin Company, in 1928 its first salesman opened the doors in Madison Wisconsin. In case you are wondering, American Family Mutual Insurance Group is the nation’s 13th largest property-casualty insurance group, 8th largest homeowners insurance company and 9th largest private passenger insurer.

About the  Event

Every year American Family Insurance recognizes the best of the best at the awards show.   The awards not only showcase agents who have been successful in their business, but also recognizes those who are passionate about making a difference in the world.  I think the Kalahari Resort is a great place to have such an event.

Event Photography

So why not just use your iphone to take pictures at your next cooperate event?  Phones take great pics these days, right?  In my experience, the hardworking crew that puts these events together for their cooperation’s are very busy. If you aren’t being pulled in a million different directions during an event like this, its easy to pull out your phone and take a picture.  Hiring a photographer is the easiest way to make sure that your event is covered!

A Golf Course Wedding

October is the perfect month for a golf course wedding.  The couple decided to pick the Wisconsin Dells for the wedding because they live in Minnesota and the majority of their family lives in Illinois, they decided that the Lake Delton are would be the perfect spot to host their wedding.

The Bride and Groom

Heidi and Sean had been engaged for 5 years when they decided to call me to photograph their wedding.  They have two children between them, Sharlee and Quaid.  Sharlee couldn’t wait to dress up and become a princess for the big day. Quaid, well- he was just in it for the fun!

The Ceremony

In October, the weather can be unpredictable.  However, on this day we were lucky!  The leaves had just started to change color, but the temps were in the 70’s.  The ceremony was small and intimate, which is my favorite type of wedding to photograph. Wild Rock Golf Course was super accommodating to the couple and their children.  I can’t say enough wonderful things about this couple, the venue or the weather! It was really great to be tucked in between the woods on a golf course.
