  • Scott and Jen are no less than magicians. We got married on a somewhat chilly October day and they were able to get such amazing pictures in such a short amount of time so that we didn't have to stand outside in the cold :) They were professional, fun, made us laugh and feel SO comfortable and just so easy and great to work with. I knew they were going to be great by their social media accounts - I love that they highlight REAL couples who don't inherently just look like models. I think it's easy for any photographer to get good pictures of naturally gorgeous people. But you can tell when a photographer is talented when they get such amazing, beautiful pictures of everyday couples. This was not only confirmed when I saw our sneak peak photos, but they blew our expectations out of the water. Seriously such talented photographers - I would recommend them in a heartbeat to anyone in the area!!

    That cold north shore gets your blood pumping, doesn’t it? Well sometimes it turns your hands purple too but, as we mentioned, we have a Photoshop brush to fix that :). You guys remind us why we love what we do so very much. The REAL moments happen when you forget we are there and feel comfortable enough to be yourselves. You guys were so wonderful to be around on your wedding day. We truly felt like we were at a wedding for someone in our family. Thank you so much for having us!

  • I do not even know where to begin for Midwest Life shots! I love them so much and I wish we lived closer because I would totally have them photograph our family forever! We had them do our engagement shoot and wedding shoot and I could not be happier with our photographers and results. They made us feel so relaxed and we had so much fun posing! Meredith is so wonderful to work with and her energy is infectious! They wore masks the whole time and we felt very safe with them. Their customer service is off the wall amazing! Scott, Jen, Meredith, and the whole team are just the kindest, most wonderful humans and I just am so happy we went with them for our wedding. Everything was great! Highly highly highly recommend! I have attached just our sneak peeks! I am so in love with them

    You guys. Wow, this is the most incredible thing to read. It makes us digitally blush like crazy and smile so big it looks like we slept with a hanger in our mouth :). Every single second of working with you two has been so wonderful. Side note, we will travel across the world to work with you whenever! We are so thankful for you guys :).

  • Amazing. Brilliant. Easy going. Flexible. Talented. Thorough. All words that best describe Scott, Jen and our experience with Midwest LifeShots. Jen and Scott are THE ULTIMATE #dreamteam! Their energy and passion is absolutely contagious! Which made for some of the BEST candid photos with ear-to-ear smiles! It’s only right that I also RAVE about how collaborative Scott and Jen were with our videographer and our wedding planner – making for an even more successful special day! We look forward to working with Scott, Jen and the incredibly talented Midwest LifeShots team to capture more of life’s special moments! P.S – would DEFINETLY recommend hiring Midwest LifeShots for engagement pictures, too. It was so wonderful getting to know Jen in person ahead of our big day!

    Ka-chow! Had to throw that line in there somewhere right? We knew you were our kind of people once we saw those insanely awesome wedding shoes! So many little touches of perfection to the day. It won't be forgotten. Knowing so many couples and walking through their journey to marriage alongside them we can tell you that you have it all figured out. Life throws curveballs at you when you least expect it and to get through those times you need to be able to smile and laugh with one another. Whenever we picture you guys, we see you smiling. Is it too soon to start sending chocolate covered strawberries and oysters to see if we can get that next life stage moving along yet? :)

  • We cannot say enough good things about Midwest Lifeshots! They helped us every step of the way and in a pandemic none the less. Scott and Jen were truly amazing to work with and we couldn’t be happier with our wedding photos. We love them!! They are so prompt with responding and answering questions and kept my mind at ease throughout the whole planning process. We highly recommend booking Midwest Lifeshots for your wedding!!

    Thank you Mackenzie! Holy cow your wedding was so memorable and amazing. Your family consists of some of the sweetest people we have ever known. The hillside behind you guys during the ceremony, the round barn dance, holy cow all of it was just amazing. Best of all, spending time with the two of you was so much fun, chasing that last little bit of sunlight for the day :). Cannot wait to work with you all again!

  • To us, the most essential wedding vendor is the photographer. Someone who captures the entire day with clear, natural, beautiful, real-color photos to help us relive our special day. Midwest LifeShots met all of our expectations and then some! Beyond the beautiful 800+ pictures we received from our wedding, working with Scott and Jen was a pleasure! They are very easy to talk too, feel comfortable around, and are responsive whenever needed. Our family also loved them, Scott and Jen were like family friends! We had the best experience with Midwest LifeShots, they are worth it!!

    We could not echo those sentiments more! We truly felt like we wanted to hang out for hours on end with you and your wonderful families and friends. Everyone had such an amazing attention to detail putting things together. It was just gorgeous! You had memorable moments...who can forget the siren going off during the ceremony? You had amazing moments between the two of you...one of the most emotional first looks we have ever seen. You had a straight up amazing day and we are so thankful to have been a tiny piece of it. God bless you two!

  • We absolutely LOVED working with Midwest LifeShots! From the first time we met with Meredith, we knew that our wedding day would go smoothly because of this team. :) Our wedding gallery was beautiful, even more amazing than we ever dreamed! Plus, we got the gallery back in 3 DAYS! 3 DAYS! It was awesome! We looked through all of our photos and relived our day while sitting on the beach during our honeymoon. The icing on the cake, they sent us soup since I was sick right before the wedding. :) Much love for this team!!

    Oh my goodness we seriously don’t know where to begin with you guys. It was the PERFECT winter wedding and one for the books. God bless you guys!

  • The absolute BEST wedding photographers hands down. The weather tried to put a damper on our day but Scott and Jen did not let that stop them and showed us just how much fun we could still have even in the cold and rain! They are an absolute joy to work with and made us feel special throughout the entire process leading up to the wedding. Working with them is not a one day thing, you get so much more than that! I cannot wait to work with them again in the future! We are definitely lifers! :)

    You guys had one of the most memorable wedding days in the history of time. From when we first arrived, standing in the garage with your family and developing a game plan, to finding the sweetest little backup Church, to stealing cheese curds from your groomsmen so they would behave for photographs and finally to riding with you guys in a gator through the mud and corn fields to find the best of the best locations even in the rain! It was amazing! We echo your sentiments about working together again. WE CANNOT WAIT!

  • We absolutely recommend this team for photography! We never once worried about the photography aspect of our day because we knew they would do whatever was needed to get us great photos. We are in love with every single picture taken. On top of the wonderful skills, their personalities are amazing! The customer service we received by them was above all. We never felt like “just another client”, we were all that mattered that day. We are forever grateful for Midwest LifeShots!

    Oh my goodness thank you so much for these sweet sentiments. We LOVE putting together the timeline, especially if it results in some free moments with a Bride & Groom at Whitewater State Park stealing every shot we can before time expires...or maybe doing the same thing at the Event Center? :) Such fun with you guys!!

  • After my first phone call with Scott, I knew I struck gold. His personality instantly made me feel like he was my newfound friend. He constantly put me at ease answering all of my questions at all times of the day/night up until the day before our wedding. Meredith, Renae and Sam were the team members assigned to photograph our wedding and cannot say enough good things about them all. We first spoke with Meredith who developed our timeline for the big day so we could ensure everyone was in the right place at the right time. She also made sure we'd have time at the cocktail hr to thank our guests which was important to us and also make sure we got our pictures taken at the golden hour which were by far my most favorite pictures of all. They all made taking photographs incredibly easy, had so many great ideas for the location and readily corrected our positions/out of place hair or whatever it may be to ensure we looked our best in the pictures. Meredith even went of her way ... Read more

  • Midwest Lifeshots Photography captured all of the small details, emotions, and special moments from our wedding day and we could not be happier. This team is truly talented and passionate about what they do....and they are a lot of fun to be around. During the planning process, they communicated so well and always checked-in during the planning process to make sure everything was going well and would ask questions about our special day. On the day of the weeding, they were so much fun to be around with making everyone laugh and having a great time. They did such a great job with finding the perfect areas for photos and how to place everyone in the group photos (we had uneven sides and a bridesman). When we received our photos, we were so in love with them. Midwest Lifeshots went above and beyond our expectations and we will cherish these photos for a lifetime.

    Thank you so much for this Jenna. Your wedding day brought the importance of living life to the fullest into full view for everyone in attendance in the most beautiful way imaginable. It was truly amazing and we are blessed to have been able to be even the smallest part of it. Truly cannot wait to work with you all again.

  • Working with Scott and Jen was a D.R.E.A.M. As an Event Planner, I work closely with the photographers-especially at weddings. The success of the day is dependent upon staying on schedule and of all pieces of the puzzle working together smoothly. Scott and Jen at Midwest Lifeshots were so easy to work with. Their professionalism, creative eye, and the FUN they brought to the day was incredible! I highly recommend them...you will thank yourself many times over!

  • • My husband and I could not be more ecstatic with all of the pictures (engagement and wedding) Scott and Jen took. They made taking pictures easy and painless, even including formal pictures. They were extremely organized and kept great communication, well before the big day and the day of. My husband and I cannot express enough gratitude and appreciation for what they have done for us. We will be working with Scott and Jen in the future for all of our photography needs! They are AMAZING!
