Ami + Geoff’s wedding is just around the corner and I wanted to share their gorgeous engagement photos with the world! We started our photoshoot at The Outsider (9th floor of Kimpton Journeyman Hotel) for some champagne soaked cheers. (Bubbly for everyone!) Don’t you love how they look at one another!? After we made it to the bottom of the sparkly, we headed down to Bayview for some seasonal shots with their pup Wu Tang. That little Shar-Pei is the darn stinking cutest thing I have ever seen, and lucky for me I get to see him again at the wedding. Seriously, I think I have the greatest job. I get to photograph brides, grooms, and puppies! For now take this engagement session as a sneak peek for all the beauty that their wedding day is going to bring this blog.
For those of you planning your engagement session and have concerns about grey overcast days then you must take a look at this engagement session. Cloudy days bring soft and even light, so there is no need to worry about harsh shadows or sensitive eyes! April in Wisconsin can be unpredictable, but so can any month in this beautiful state, and being prepared is the best defense for your photo session. Kahla and Dane embraced the, not so ideal, early spring weather like they hadn’t a care in the world…except each other. We kept the shoot simple with one prop, a serape Mexican blanket, and a simple dress change. Their complimentary color palette really worked well with the lake location and their breezy personalities, and of course Kahla’s eyes (how could you miss those stunning baby blues?!).
My favorite kind of engagement sessions are the ones where I get an immediate sense of who the couple are, and these two are a GREAT team. About a week before our shoot Jessica emailed me letting me know that she had recently had knee surgery and might be wearing her big ‘ole therapy boot; however, on the day of their session, Jessica was sans boot. Being a gentleman (and an upstanding fiance), William helped her maneuver around the Third Ward without the non-photogenic accessory. It was light and laughter the entire time I spent with them. These two were so much fun to have in front of my camera – that I’m already looking forward to their June wedding!
