Claire and Sam are the some of the cutest, most fun people to be around! By the time we had finished their engagement photos, I felt like we’d known each other for years. We had some crazy lakeshore wind and a rogue 3 minute rain shower in the midst of their session, and these two took it all in stride. It was great to photograph them in their new home, having just moved to Milwaukee from Madison! Sam and Claire walk their dog Millie by the lake often, so taking photos on the lakeshore was extra special to help commemorate their new life in Milwaukee.
Sam planned quite the intricate proposal, invoking the help of his sister to help pull everything off. Sam had transformed their favorite coffee shop in Madison into a perfectly decorated place to propose. His sister brought them there blindfolded and when Claire took hers off, she saw Sam on one knee! Claire and Sam will tie the knot next September, and celebrate with a reception at The Drake in Oakbrook, IL. I’m so excited to be there with them (and also sad that I have to wait that long, waa!) and their family and friends!
