Maria & David

A few weekends ago, I got to travel back to the Midwest to photograph the wedding of two friends: one old, one new.

Maria and I went to high school together in Minnesota. When she got in touch with me to see if I would shoot wedding, she didn't tell me a whole lot about her fiancee, David. They met in New York, they had been together a few years, they were living in Madison now but were likely moving to Chicago in the near future. 

One day a few months ago, I got an email from David who wrote, "Hey I think you're photographing my wedding and I think we went to college together and I'm applying for this job at your work so we might be coworkers too!" It turns out that David got the job and just like that we became college buddies and coworkers!

David and Maria's beautiful wedding was held at The Edgewater Hotel, just steps from the University of Wisconsin - Madison campus. Maria & David chose college back to school weekend for their wedding weekend and it couldn't have been more perfect. Excitement, energy and emotions were in the air as they said their vows in front of a dramatic view Lake Mendota.

I'm so happy that I got to be a part of this fantastic wedding and I'm so excited to see what these two have in store for their future.

Best wishes to the newlyweds!
