After a couple of weather-related scheduling issues, the latest and greatest installment from the Perry clan finally got off the ground on a very toasty afternoon in the Third Ward... mid-afternoon sun still didn't manage to outshine Lauren & Matt making their modelling debut with a little coaching on the side from cheerleader Lisa when she could take time away from sunning herself...happily we don't have to wait too long to see these guys again when the K-town crowd descends once again on Milwaukee in October..

So did I get my Star Wars wedding yet? Nope... this one gave me one better... a Dr. Who wedding. The brilliance was hinted at with Anna and Chris last fall with their teasing engagement session, but fittingly pulled ou all of the stops for their big day... from the smallest of details only the truest of Whovians would recognise up to the biggest detail of all, their hand-made life-sized (on the outside only of course) TARDIS... with costumed companions and guests (special props to all given the stifling heat...especially the Third Dr (Dad) Captain Jack and the Fourth Dr) it's rare to see a wedding having so much fun with each other, though I have a feeling it would have been just as wonderful anyways for such a beautiful couple as Anna & Chris... every time I wrap Tom Baker's scarf 5 times around me, I'll think of you guys...

After two rescheduled sessions we finally managed to get this shoot with Megan & Eric going... after a quick dousing with mosquito spray that smelled surprisingly good, the modelling commenced as we tromped through the wilder parts of Foxbrook, enjoying the other denizens as we went, including a small boy averting near disaster on his bike and a bro trying to get his puppy into the pictures before being stalked by our Fairy God-ranger who Eric attempted to negotiate his parking ticket with...

Kicking off on a family plot of land in Washington county, Jenna, Tyler and the Millster took a circuit of the barn before bringing out Tyler's guns (he also brought his rifles as well) and Jenna's boots for a tour of the nearby range..a few badass portraits and a misfire later, we hit the road after a quick tick-check (though maybe a tonneau check might have been in order, poor pup!) and down to Pike Lake to finish up... get ready to see these guys again in the Holidays when we're told they're going to make Santa Claus look like the Grinch with their festive festivities..

A hike up to what felt like Canada for wonderful Erica and Josh at the serene and secluded Green Lake Heidel House resort for what turned out to be a gorgeous but equally toasty lakeside warp-speed wedding... though I guess when your friends and family are as much fun as they are with these guys, the less time spent with the lovely formalities and the more spent with a pint of New Glarus in hand the better... after a quick tour de force of the lake front for some pictures, it was on to the party where the Badger-Buckeye stand-off continued in all probability until the very small hours... Erica & Josh. Married. from Steve Bowman on Vimeo.

"You had me at "we're bee-keepers""...Sarah & Mike had many reasons why this was a good commission to take but the fact that they're apiarists certainly may have pushed them over the edge... after all, bee keepers are pretty cool people... and they're even cooler when they show up to the consultation zombified after a weekend of tapping maples... so it was no surprise as we stalked around Minooka park when Mike started chowing down on clover and grass and relished all of the off-roading we had to do... really looking forward to seeing these guys and their bridal army again in a few weeks...

Off to Cedarburg for Kate & Marty who once again lucked out with the weather.. for their engagement they got perhaps the only decent day in the entire winter, and yesterday one of the best days of the spring so far.. it does seem they get the best of everything however, surrounded by their fantastic friends and family there for an earnest wedding celebration, getting the park to themselves (which is a rarity in that spot) and finally their wonderful reception.. just remember to tip the bartenders. Kate & Martin. Married. from Steve Bowman on Vimeo.
