While the world pauses, waiting for what might unfold next, many of us find ourselves steeped in the familiar. Stranded in the places we’ve made our own — our castles, our keeps, our hovels, our homes…

How to Choose the Right Wedding Photographer for YOU

Posted on

They asked, you said yes, and ever since, you’ve been walking around on cloud nine, amazed that you get to spend the rest of your days with this wonderful human. It’s a pretty awesome moment in time – you should take a moment and soak it in.  ♥♥♥ Feels good, right? Okay, I want you to remember that feeling. Because that’s the feeling you should have when you look back on all of the photos from your wedding day. Grateful, […]

Wed in the Woods | Wisconsin Elopement Photographer

Posted on

Believe it or not, November in Wisconsin is a wonderful time for an elopement — and creativity! Drawing on late harvest inspiration and some luxurious north-woods atmosphere, Andy and I pulled this styled adventure elopement together in a little less than a weekend.  With the help of our friends Steph and Amy of Forget Me Not Flower Market in Walworth, WI, and the small treasure trove of props and decor we have available here at BlueVerve Studio, everything came together in a […]

Playful Spring Golf Course Wedding | Twin Lakes, WI

Posted on

Here we are, in the midst of September, and I have not blogged a single one of our wonderful weddings this year.  Please forgive me — we have been busy, running around collecting poignant memories for couples and families alike! Of course, being a stickler for a good timeline (as our brides and grooms know), I’m happy to retrace the year now, and begin blogging where I left off — with Alyssa and Greg. Back in May, these two helped […]

Finally, More Snow | Williams Bay, WI

Piers in the Winter

I only had a few spare moments in between unpacking and meetings to wander in the white fluff that covered the Bay this afternoon, but, I am so grateful that I did! Every time I step foot into nature or trek around this side of Geneva Lake, I’m truly taken by its beauty. Even in nearly white-out conditions, the stark quiet grants the type of peace that leaves you with a feeling of hope. And hope has been plentiful today. […]

Photography Personal Branding by BlueVerve Studio

In my last post, I mentioned one of my favorite local female photographers, Elyse Bullard. Each time Elyse and I work together, I can count on two things — great photographs, and total willingness to get goofy and creative in order to make them. In fact, one of the things I most appreciate about Elyse is how willing she is to take the time to get out and shoot around, just for the sake of her love of photography. As […]

The Lake Geneva, WI area is filled with beauty. LG proper and the surrounding towns boast the sort of picturesque landscapes that make the Midwest so iconic – rolling hills, quaint farmland, and freshwater lakes rife with wildlife. It’s no wonder families travel from all over the Midwest to vacation and live in this friendly little haven. Natural features and iconic landscapes are only a part of the story here, however. Just north of the Illinois/Wisconsin border, lies a burgeoning creative […]

2016: The Power Of Perseverance

2016: Perseverance by Jen Schildgen

One of the fun, semi-motivational activities a few individuals from my circle of friends have adopted is the practice of choosing a theme for each year. While relatively simple, the act of theming one’s year brings about the opportunity to focus clearly and concisely upon the greater scope and outcome one wishes to achieve. It is a way of effectively condensing all of the New Years resolutions we’ve presumably just made for ourselves, along with our hopes, dreams, and disappointments […]
