I had such a great time at the Wedding Planner & Guide Winter Bridal Show at the Alliant Energy Center in Madison, WI this past weekend! I met so many wonderful couples, and got to sample some amazing food (cake!) from several of the other vendors. I stepped it up a notch this year with an amazing 20 foot wood wall that my husband built for me the week of the show. He's a saint. Check out the booth and let me know what you think of the new display in the comments!

The full bridal show booth! It was a snap to put together the actual wall (believe it or not!), and I loved the unfinished wood and all the knots. I'll be adding a few more images next year, and look forward adding more decorations to pull it together for an even more finished look.

Sample wedding albums and custom photo guest books, designed by Firelily Photography, and a killer metal photo from a stunning winter wedding. All of my albums are designed by me and are made of the highest quality materials available. Custom photo guest books are a great way to show off your stunning engagement pictures, and you'll enjoy reading the messages your loving friends and family leave for you!

A large metal photo from the gorgeous Hindu wedding I photographed this past summer. Rachel & Shankar were so amazing to work with, and the colorful henna and bracelets look awesome printed on metal!

If you're attending the Wedding Planner & Guide Winter Bridal Show, there's always a cozy spot for you to rest when you're feeling overwhelmed by all the amazing vendors (or while your cake hanover passes). Grab an album or two and dream of your perfect wedding photos while chatting with me about your custom collection options!

Perhaps my favorite part of the new booth -- the rainbow flag. It's important that everyone knows that Firelily Photography is a safe place for them. Love is Love is love is love.

Hey, that's me! After two long days of chatting with awesome couples and eating copious amounts of cake, I figured I should get a picture of myself to remind you all of who I am. You saw a lot of wedding photographers, and a lot of pictures, and ate a lot of cake. I wouldn't blame you if you didn't remember my goofy smile! Remember, there is such amazing talent in Madison, it would be impossible to choose a wedding photographer based on pictures alone. Make sure you sit down and chat with the photographers you're considering, either at a bridal show or consultation, to be sure you click. You'll be spending between 6 and 12 hours with them on your wedding day...you want to be sure they're a good fit!

 

 

Thank you to my husband, Jamie, for building the booth on extremely short notice (in sub-zero weather); to Shannon, of SMR Photography, for hauling, drilling, and assembling the wall and booth materials with me; to Jerrad, of Thrive Photography & Films, for coming to my rescue when my prints kept falling; to Ruth (pictured in the upper right image!) for hanging out and helping me on Saturday! Although I'm a one-woman show, I could never do all of this without all of you.
