Wisconsin in protest – wedding portraits

To say it is an interesting time to take wedding photos in Madison is an understatement – the whole city is ablaze with protest, and Heather & David were keen to make it a part of their wedding day by marching (with their wedding party) along the capitol square with wedding appropriate protest banners.
