Beth & Colin

Beth & Colin were married on March 15th. The skies were clear and there was even a hint of spring in the air. The girls chatted together, giddy with excitement, the birds were chirping and the lions roaring. The lions were roaring?!? Yup you heard me right. Surrounded by all of their friends, whether warm or cold blooded... two or four legged, the delightful Beth & Colin exchanged their wedding vows.

Beth works at the Dane County Zoo as a zoo keeper. So when it came time for her & Colin to discuss the plans for their big day, there was only one place that would be a perfect fit for their wedding day photographs. Following their traditional church ceremony we traveled to the zoo for an after hours photo shoot with the many animals that call this place home. What an incredible experience! We spent time in the aviary with all the beautiful birds, fed the giraffes, road on the carousel and even got one on one with Cal "the educational penguin". Remember how I said the bridesmaids were giddy with excitement... well count me in that group! To make the day even more fun I brought along my good friend and the uber talented Ms. Karmen as my second shooter. I know I speak for both of us when I say, Beth & Colin we had a blast! Thank you so much for allowing us to photograph your unique and magical wedding.



Some more fun with textures.... love the detailing in her dress.


Feeding the giraffes... Favorite!


What lady doesn't love a man in a tux?!?!

Karmen snagged this one of Cal striking a pose.


FAVORITE!!!! Love it!

Here's something we haven't seen in a while... green grass. Beth & Colin grew
sheets & sheets of it for centerpieces at the reception. It was beautiful.
