ANGIE & SPENCER - RIVERVIEW GARDENS CEREMONY AND RECEPTION PHOTOGRAPHER - APPLETON, WI - GOSIA'S PHOTOGRAPHY

Over my many years in the wedding photography business, I must say that Angie and Spencer made the most laid back couple I have ever had the pleasure to photograph. And, it was a Sunday wedding… I love Sunday weddings!

EMILY & ALEC - PLAMANN PARK ENGAGEMENT SESSION PHOTOGRAPHER - APPLETON, WI - GOSIA'S PHOTOGRAPHY

When I book bridal couples via phone and don’t meet them until the day of their engagement session, I always laugh when I drive to meet them… it’s somewhat weird to drive up to a car and ask the people in it if they are ‘my couple.’ And, Alec and Emily were today’s couple… so totally in-love, adorable, and willing to do whatever it takes ;)

Can you believe that, at the beginning, Emily was slightly uncomfortable in front of camera?!!

I have never had a groom-to-be just pick up his bride without any direction… he went, whoosh, and there it was… another great photo.

Creating magical images can sometimes be met with raised eyebrows… like, ‘you two go around under those trees, and then sit in between all the brush,’ but then, this is what we get. :)

The day started with rainy clouds but ended with a beautiful sunny weather, an awesome couple, and a ton of laughter.

VERONICA & DAVID - MILWAUKEE ENGAGEMENT SESSION PHOTOGRAPHER - GOSIA'S PHOTOGRAPHY

I don’t think I have ever had a couple whose both last names are so much more Polish than mine… and I’m off the boat!

When Veronica mentioned that she wanted me to meet them in an orchard, I think I might have danced a happy dance… it’s been a long time since I have photographed at an apple orchard.

As avid car enthusiasts, they showcased some of their race cars. I cannot wait to photograph their wedding at Elkhart’s Road America. I have been told that the racecourse will be hot that day :)

JACKIE & DREW - TJ'S HARBOR CEREMONY AND RECEPTION PHOTOGRAPHER - OSHKOSH, WI - GOSIA'S PHOTOGRAPHY

I met Jackie in 2014 at her sister’s wedding. I was so happy when Jackie told me she was getting married and wanted me to photograph her big day! I loved working with her then, and was looking forward to working with her on her wedding day!

Jackie&Drew-Appleton-wedding-photographer-Gosias-Photography-Oshkosh-TJs-Harbor-outdoor-ceremony-reception-_0001.jpg

Visually, this wedding for me, was all about light contrast, reflections, sun rays, sunset, moon and everything in-between. Jackie’s keen eye for details and color made my job a breeze! For an example, just look at the invitation colors and patterns and the background… a perfect match… just like Jackie and Drew!

Jackie&Drew-Appleton-wedding-photographer-Gosias-Photography-Oshkosh-TJs-Harbor-outdoor-ceremony-reception-_0008.jpg

Stacy asked the seamstress to sow in a heart into Jackie’s dress (the material came from Stacy’s bridesmaid’s dress and it was a little surprise of ‘something blue’).

Jackie&Drew-Appleton-wedding-photographer-Gosias-Photography-Oshkosh-TJs-Harbor-outdoor-ceremony-reception-_0004.jpg

This awesome bride spent a lot of time on her wedding day details. She even made her own bouquet.

I have a lot of favorite photos from this wedding, but this is one of my all-time favorite getting ready shots.

Drew’s family flew in from all over the country. It was lovely meeting them all.

Yes, that’s the groom’s initial impression to seeing his bride for the first time… wow!

Can you guess how many mosquitoes I had to photoshop in each photo? Answer: A LOT! But, it still looks so lovely.

Thank you, Jackie and Drew, for making me a part of your wedding. It was my honor photographing your beautiful day. Also, it was nice seeing Stacy and Zach, Cody, all of your family once again, and it was nice meeting Drew’s family.

Dziekuje!

LAURA & NATE - THE WATERS OF MINOCQUA CEREMONY AND RECEPTION - APPLETON, WI - GOSIA'S PHOTOGRAPHY

I met Laura four years ago while photographing her brother’s wedding. So it’s needless to say I was very honored, when she reached out to me about her own wedding. It was so great to see the M family again!

Laura and Nate’s wedding ceremony and reception took place at her family’s vacation spot - The Waters of Minocqua. The eighty-two degree weather was highly unusual for this time of year and location, but that didn’t disheartened anyone from having an awesome time!

Thank you, Laura and Nate, for making me a part of your special day. It was great seeing everyone again and I’m kind of sad that Mr. and Mrs. M (Laura’s parents) ran out of their lovely children for me to photograph. :)

Dziekuje

PS. And, thank you, Kara (and Jake) for being some of my greatest advocates!
