I’ve been so excited to share this gorgeous Sikh wedding in Milwaukee as a second shooter for Jennifer Johnson. I’m so happy she asked me to come along with her on this wedding, it was to die for! it was also a record wedding for us… 17 hours long! and that is without the mehndi ceremony the night before. but, Shelly and Zach and both their families treated us with so much kindness, Shelly was never without a smile or something nice to say. One wedding in a day is tiring for a bride, but TWO FULL WEDDINGS in one day is more than exhausting especially when there are wardrobe changes. Shelly and Zach celebrated the traditional Sikh wedding first, then changed and performed a Christian ceremony. Their energy transferred right to us, and there were times when i felt like we just didn’t have ENOUGH time with them. And, of course, in typical Indian wedding fashion, the reception was beyond amazing, with dancers, performances, incredible food, and amazing music. Tomorrow I’ll be posting more of the ceremonies, stay tuned!
WELCOME to the new home of Lexia Frank Photography!
If you're returning - we're going through a big re-branding of our business (nothing like a fresh new coat of paint!), from sugarLeaf Photography to Lexia Frank Photography. If you're new ... well then hello :)
I'm a fine art wedding, portrait, and birth photographer that has a love affair with film. Yes... film. you thought it was dead? well... guess again. i shoot medium format film (and sometimes digital), but you can check out what's in my photography bag here
if you're intrigued (or you're just the techy-type that loves to know the specs). If you dont care about the specs, well... i shoot film because it makes me slow down. it forces me to wait for just the right second. it forces me to stop rapid firing and appreciate the quiet beauty of the moment. it is honest, true, and authentic.
i love the process, i love the film grain, i love developing my own prints. i'm a purist, a fine art major from the University of Wisconsin, and i like to treat my weddings and portrait sessions not like the run of the mill photographer, but like it's an assignment for a gallery space. i value physical prints over pixels, and want my own children to be able to riffle through boxes of prints instead of locating folders on harddrives when they want to reminisce about their childhood. we appreciate handmade albums for weddings and family heirlooms, and giclée prints for the walls.
We love traveling all over the country (and often the world) to photograph amazing events and milestones... it fuels my soul to see people fall in love with each other, their babies, their lives.
