I have lived in Taylor County for over six years and have never taken the drive up to Ogema to visit Timm’s Hill County Park; at 1,951 feet above sea level, Timm’s Hill is the highest point in Wisconsin. Today we changed that. It has been something I have wanted to do for some time, but simply never made time to do it. On our travels we stopped at Hill of Beans Restaurant  in High Point Village for some lunch. It is rare that we venture out on a Saturday due to our busy summer schedule, but for the first time this summer we had an open Saturday. We took full advantage and stopped to buy some pumpkins on highway 13. We found a field nearby for a quick photo shoot. We are gearing up for our Family Portrait session with the Über talented McCartneys and thought we better practice our posing and smiling for the camera before the big day. Well, these are the results. Yes, these are my offspring and they are like this all day everyday.

We're the Stokes


've spent the past decade capturing love and chasing beauty across the globe, and I believe every story like yours is different and special, and deserves to be told exceptionally. 

Drawing on years of experience in the fashion and editorial photography industry, my photographs are graceful, honest and boldly natural, while completely intentional. Whether it’s the opportunity to narrate the retelling of once-in-a-lifetime wedding days, or the ability to communicate issues of global importance, or all the stories in between, I look at photography as the method by which I get to leave the world a little better than I found it.
