We're Alyssa and Ryan Keel, and these are our two boys, Parker and Nash. We live just outside of Oconomowoc, WI and spend most of our days juggling the daily life of working from home and keeping up with these boys. Ryan and I met in college in 2010 at UW Stevens Point. We both graduated from college and purchased our first home downtown Oconomowoc. We fell head over heels for the community and knew this is where we would plant our roots.
We bought a 100 year old bungalow and renovated it when we were 23 and 24 years old. We LOVED that house. Shortly after, we flew to Europe where Ryan proposed in Paris! We got married in June of 2015 and began our photography business later that year! We loved the wedding planning process so much and knew that we had found our calling to pursue wedding photography. We photographed our very first wedding in Mount Hood in Oregon, and have since photographed over 75 weddings. We purchased our second home just outside of Oconomowoc in 2017. In 2018 we had our first son Parker. He is such a silly and sweet little boy who has so much wonder for the universe. We have found ourselves so much more interested in space because of him.
In 2020 we welcomed our second son Nash. Nash struggled to breathe when he was first born and was in the NICU for 23 days. During his stay he was diagnosed with Nephrogenic Diabetes Insipidus (NDI) just like his big brother. Getting a second diagnosis was difficult to hear. We have turned into such powerful advocates for our sons and have found ourselves wanting to always give back to Children's Hospital of Wisconsin and the Ronald McDonald House. It is our goal to donate every year to one of those two organizations who have played such an important role in our family's story.
