Andrew and Tia’s Kohler-Andrae State Park engagement session in Sheboygan, Wisconsin is one of my favorite places to take portraits. The landscape is undeniably stunning, Lake Michigan is set against the rolling sand dunes, and sun-aged boardwalks cross the mounds like arteries. We had the most beautiful golden hour to take these engagement portraits that are the perfect blend of sophistication in the natural environment. Just wait until you see their wedding photos!
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?!).
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!
