Congratulations to the Stolles!

Cassie and Justin married on a beautiful summer day after years of partnership. A lengthy courtship is something we shared in common. I was with my significant other for more than a decade before we finally officially tied the knot, so I know their wedding day was highly anticipated by friends and family. If you read about their Summer 2019 engagement session, you will recall that I have known the bride’s family for quite some time. I have had the opportunity to document several milestones in their family, for which I am very thankful.

It was such a joy seeing Cassie and Justin’s big day play out.

Erected in 1883, St. Theodore Catholic Church is a beautiful church with a longstanding history in the Flint Hill community.

It is finally official. Congratulations, Mr. & Mrs. Stolle!

After a year of planning, pivoting, and making pandemic adjustments, Cassie and Justin’s wedding day was flawless.

Being able to celebrate such important milestones with the Baumbach family has been such an honor. I have now photographed the weddings of two of the sisters, and have had a lot of fun being a part of their family celebrations.

Congratulations to the happy couple!
