When I first started photography, I was very focused on photographing my children because that is where my inspiration to learn initially came from. Now that I’ve been photographing others for almost 4 years, I have gotten to delve into different types of photography. When I’ve recently fallen in love with is wedding photography. This fall, I had the opportunity to photograph a styled rooftop elopement. If you’re looking for Wisconsin elopement photographer, keep reading because I have some amazing images to share with you from this elopement!
Let me tell you this elopement was fire, literally. We had the perfect location on the roof of Hotel Northland in Green Bay, WI. We also had gorgeous models who are a couple in real life. This elopement was part of a styled shoot/content day hosted by Jess x Ally. I attended with about five other photographers and it was a great opportunity to not only grow our portfolios but network with each other.
We started the elopement session at Ally’s studio in De Pere, WI. The session began by taking some getting ready shots of the bride and the groom, as well as flat lays of their accessories. Then we headed to Hotel Northland to photograph them getting married. Now keep in mind these were models and this was a styled shoot, so they did not actually get married but we got to experience what it would be like to photograph an elopement which was super helpful to grow my photography skills.
We took amazing beautiful shots right at sunset and had the most gorgeous city backdrop at Hotel Northland. My favorite parts of this session were seeing how in love the couple is and popping that champagne! I love that we were able to switch up their looks a little bit and add a leather jacket for the bride and take a couple of images of them snuggled together on the rooftop. We had a lot of time to experiment using direct flash and special effects such as a plastic baggies and prisms.
I learned SO much during this Wisconsin elopement photography session and I am super excited to share that I will be a Wisconsin elopement photographer for couples in Wisconsin starting in 2023.
