Kilkarney Hills Golf Course was the perfect backdrop for Hailey and Adam’s River Falls, WI wedding. The lush greens, willowy trees, and picturesque hills made for a dreamy and romantic wedding day.
Hailey and Adam’s story began at college, where they both attended the University of Wisconsin: River Falls. They caught each other’s eye at a bar on campus and, after a bit of scheming between their friends, were introduced. Don’t you just love it when the whole “guy meets a girl at a bar” thing ends up in happily-ever-after? Ah! I love it!
Cut to two years later, and Adam proposes on the very same bridge where he asked Hailey to be his girlfriend. Again, how flippin’ cute is that?!
The afternoon of their wedding was a HOT one! I’m talking 90 degrees with what felt like 80% humidity. But both Hailey and Adam’s spirits as cool as cucumbers! I met Hailey and her girls at the hotel while Adam and his men got ready at their home. Hailey was in great spirits, no real traces of wedding-day jitters and all the excitement of a girl head over heels in love.
I swear, the day just flew by because everyone was having such a great time! Their ceremony made their guests laugh and cry, the speeches were poignant with a hint of silliness (always a plus in my book), and the dance floor…well…it was hopping! You Wisconsinites really know how to live it up on the dance floor!
Hailey and Adam truly are meant to be and I’m so excited to see what unfolds for them in the years to come! Congrats you two!!

How do we even start to say thank you for all the work and effort you put into our wedding day?
- Josie and Scott
Lauren played such a meaningful role in our wedding, capturing the day in photos that we'll look back on for the rest of our lives. She kept Scott and me calm and sane - Lauren is a miracle worker! She put in 100% effort and gave us her very best, and that means so much to me. Seeing our photographs makes me so excited and so happy that Lauren was with us on this journey.
Lauren made the process so easy and made us feel so comfortable!
- Amy and Luke
We just wanted to say thank you again so much for your amazing work. You were seriously incredible to work with and we loved the locations you suggested for both our engagement shoot and the spots in Stillwater. We were very worried about getting professional photos done since we had never done it before, but you made the process so easy and made us feel so comfortable. Thank you!
Working with Lauren was easy breezy and FUN! She gave us our most treasured photos ever!
- GRACE AND NICK
There was a chunk of time in our wedding planning when we thought we'd go without a professional photographer to save on cost (terrible idea!) but once we met with Lauren, we knew we'd be in good hands. She checked in often and asked questions that got us thinking about other parts of the wedding that we probably would've missed. Lauren captured exactly who we are as a couple!
Lauren's enthusiasm and passion make the photo-taking process so fun – she made me feel like a star!
- Alisa AND Adam
Lauren and her team are so much fun to work with! She made us feel so comfortable on the day of our wedding, providing both silly and helpful cues to help us relax and be ourselves in our photos. Lauren’s background in dance is super helpful in recognizing simple posture changes that make a big difference, too. Oh, and the photos we got are just stunning!
Lauren was pivotal in making our wedding day perfect!
- Emma AND Erik
My husband and I looked FOR MONTHS to find the perfect photographer and after meeting Lauren we knew was the best fit for us. She made our day so much fun and easy. She found little opportunities to make the perfect photo all with a calm ease that comes from someone who has an artistic eye along with experience in understanding the flow of a wedding.
Not only is Lauren an amazing human being, but she is an awesome photographer!
- Haley AND Erick
I've been in several weddings and have worked with a multitude of photographers and I never felt as confident as I did with Lauren. I love how professional she is. She helped with the timeline way in advance and we stuck to that timeline the day of. She was also able to professionally and firmly keep unruly family members settled and focused and navigated family drama beautifully!
