Bridal Shower Games | Little Fun with your friends and family



Sometimes we aren’t sure what will please a lot of friends and family… I saw this blog post and thought to share especially with the holidays coming up. Not necessarily just for bridal showers… but why not play with friends and family just by mixing it up and creating the games rules to be a little different or even this summer at a picnic or family function!

Worried about finding entertaining games for the bridal shower you’re hosting? Fear not! These simple games are easy and will put your guests at ease.



Mistakes to Avoid during Wedding Planning

Day in and day out wedding planning can be fun…who doesn’t like the idea of helping two people in love, plan the celebration of a life time. Typically I witness wedding planning being done by friends who are completely new to wedding planning; Most have never had to plan a something outside of a bachelorette party or a bridal shower, etc. It’s no easy task to navigate, so I have pulled together 5 tips that will help wedding planners get through some of the common hiccups in the planning process.

Mistakes are bound to happen – Some can unfortunately be quite costly, but most can be avoided! I have listed one of my own suggestions, as well as a few others here, but feel free to visit the link below for the whole list!

St Michael Prom Pictures

I had an absolute blast today with these three awesome couples… St Michael Prom is happening! Takes me back to the glory days of when you huddle up with friends, grab a limo or tractor, and ride on in to school for a good time & tear up the dance floor all night. I had to send over a little behind the scenes action from today’s shoot before these gorgeous couples head off to dinner and dance!!

Bride | Behind the Scenes with Andrew

Happy Saturday as I write this from Duluth, MN as I’m doing a 4 day tour that started on Thursday around WI & MN photography a number of amazing engaged couples and sweetheart photo sessions.

I just wanted to share a little love this morning of a recent bride I photographed while I was in St Louis, MO. Traveling at times as a wedding photographer based out of Eau Claire, WI – I always don’t have the capabilities of sight seeing shall I say to scope out the wedding venue or reception venue prior to the wedding day. Being a wedding photographer, it’s always fun and exciting to photograph in new locations because I just never know what I’m walking in to which excites me at every wedding day. Dark lighting, bright lighting, colored lighting, lots of people, little ideal locations or spots, etc… all accounts should be considered – and being the professional I am always looking for most ideal locations for my clients to create wedding portraits such as this one.

Even better yet… when you can have an opportunity to one of Eau Claire’s most sought after high school senior photographer. –  ‘Take Andrew to Prom.’ You ask… SAAAAAY WHAAAAT?!? Yes… you ask ‘WHY something so crazy that nobody else is doing?’ I ask… ‘WHY NOT…?’ I don’t like doing what everyone else is doing and that’s the best part of why we have seniors traveling to us for their senior pictures.
