Super cool!
 
A river of fog flowed down the Mississippi and Missouri rivers last week. Here's a cool image from our Terra satellite.

Don't forget about voting for judges today! They have such a big impact -- if not more -- than many local politicians. Here's the Chicago Bar Association's guide to "qualified" and "not recommended" judges on the ballot today: http://goo.gl/YguZT

The fog comes, on little cat feet. It sits looking over the harbor and city, on silent haunches, and then moves on. - Sandburg

I enjoyed this very much: "I Know What You Think of Me" http://goo.gl/KNjDb

"Hearing other people’s uncensored opinions of you is an unpleasant reminder that you’re just another person in the world, and everyone else does not always view you in the forgiving light that you hope they do, making all allowances, always on your side. There’s something existentially alarming about finding out how little room we occupy, and how little allegiance we command, in other people’s heads."

When we were looking for photographers in Milwaukee, it was really important to us that we could afford two photographers for the 8-hour timeframe we desired. We wanted to avoid the big photo groups that simply assign you a photographer, as my sister did that for her wedding and hated her photos. Everywhere I looked in Milwaukee, we felt like the choices were either to pay for a really well known, reputable photographer who was far too expensive for ONE person ($6k+ for 8 hours) or be stuck with the big shops and gamble with quality. I found Thrive Photography & Design via Facebook, and am so happy we chose them! They were cost-effective, so we could afford two photographers for the whole day/evening, as we got to create a custom package, removing and adding things that mattered to us. Lisa Hamilton truly listened to us, understood our preferences, and made us feel comfortable and confident during both our engagement photo shoot and throughout our wedding day. We wanted really nice, classic photos, and didn't want to be put into awkward poses (like leg pops and guy-carrying-girl) that didn't feel like our style. She did a great job creating scenes and poses that felt more natural to us, and that came through well in the pictures, as no one looks uncomfortable. In addition, she was open to referencing a short shot list that detailed the photos we wanted to make sure we got (family group shots, sister and brother pictures, etc.), and many photographers refuse to do that. Because of this, not only do we have a collection of timeless bride/groom pics, but a great spread of beautiful photos featuring the people we love who came to celebrate with us! We continue to receive so many compliments from our guests who've enjoyed their pictures, too. I'm very glad we chose Thrive, and definitely recommend them for weddings. (They also do videography, if you have interest in that, too. I did not use that service, however, so cannot comment on it.)
