Cassie and Chris suggested having their engagement session in their very own backyard in Mequon, Wisconsin, and of course I was beyond excited. Seeing my couples comfortable in their element makes for a breezy session, and as a bonus Audi got to play a large role in her mom’s (and new dad’s) engagement session. I must admit I love having pets make a cameo in engagement and wedding photos, they are a part of the family after all. Cassie incorporated their upcoming wedding colors into their shoot – pink and teal for the win! That personalized pop of color really added a little something special to the neutral winter background. Scroll on to see the cuteness below!
Boy oh boy! Wisconsin sure has some incredible gems, and I’m not just talking about Lauren and Joe. Kohler Andrae State Park has rolling sand dunes, Lake Michigan views, a quaint boardwalk, beautiful beaches, and more! It was truly the perfect location for this adorable couple’s engagement session. We had so much fun walking the boardwalk and frolicking at the lake’s edge just as the sun was getting low in the sky. Now I just have to wait until next summer to capture their wedding day magic on film!
These two were just a treat to photograph. Our spring here in Wisconsin was pretty late, and having scheduled this session months in advance, we had no idea how mother nature was going to behave. The day of our shoot the weather was perfect, although the blooms were a few weeks behind, I have to say that I really like the way the mostly bare and brown branches lend such a neutral background to the images. Here are a few of my favorite images from our session.
There really isn’t a sweeter way to spend a late afternoon’s day then by photographing a couple truly in love. Tori and Andrew requested a natural outdoorsy engagement photo session to coordinate with their late September Devil’s Lake area wedding, and I was more than happy to comply. We traipsed through the woods, leaves, and weeds all to capture these lovely images. Spring may be a little ways a way, but I am already looking forward to this fall just so I can hang out in the woods with them once again.
Let’s take a journey back in time to warmer days, shall we? Early this fall Jeremy and Maranda showed me how adventurous they are by following me down a steep cliff to reach our top secret photography destination. These two just brought the adorable. They are so in love and boy oh boy does it show. Now I have to patiently make it through winter and wait until next summer for more of these magical moments. Let the countdown begin!
