It’s always hard to predict exactly *when* peak fall colors are going to be, especially when we are scheduling fall shoots months in advance! However, we seem to have timed Heather and Gordon’s engagement session exactly perfect for bright oranges and reds! These two chose both Wisconsin’s capital and the University of Wisconsin- Madison’s Picnic Point for there photos, and we got the perfect mix of nature and stunning architecture. Their quintessential Madison engagement session is a perfect peek into their new Wisconsin life, as Heather and Gordon just relocated here from Pennsylvania.

Heather and Gordon are two of the sweetest people ever. There was never a shortage of things to talk about, from their jobs in the medical field to their sweet dog Kona. I was oogling over Heather’s dress, coat (look at those pockets!!), and maroon velvet heels (I don’t think there could’ve been a better outfit to wear to the capital!) the whole time. Not to mention that Gordon looked dapper in his blue suit, complete with monogrammed shirt cuffs. These two are the definition of elegance and class, yet so kind and fun- the best possible mix. They even invited me to join them for dinner after, which I would’ve jumped at the chance to spend more time with them, had my family not been in from out of town! To say I’m excited for their Bishops Bay Country Club wedding next year is the understatement of the century, but we’ll all have to wait until next September for more of this goodness 🙂

    I was so moved by you photos. I felt a joy and contentment sweep over me, as if witnessing something so special and complete. Did I witness that ephemeral LOVE that we know so little about, in language? I think so.

    I can’t tell you how happy I feel for you, Heather and. Gordon! I’m actually crying with good feeling and love for you. Totally unexpected that I would feel this so deeply.

    You are both so beautiful to witness. I better stop before I get carried away-(too late).

    I will Support and Love you forever.

    Love, Dad.

    So : much to my surprise, I found myself lying in bed, still suffering daily, after 8 months of undiagnosed illness, feeling down and defeated. Then I looked at your photos!!

    I was so moved by witnessing your relationship and love. So happy for you and your decision to move into the future as partners. I actually experienced an inexplicable?relief?, as if one of my life goals had been satisfied.

    You both look so beautiful, contented and satisfied. I found myself crying with joy. I love you both and will commit to be available to help you in any way I can. That didn’t surprise me. But the degree of fulfillment and happiness I experienced did. I can’t begin to explain it , but I wanted so to share this with you.
