6 tips for choosing your portrait session outfits

These people right here… they are the ones that kept me goin’ through this crazy year! All of my weddings but six were postponed, so the large majority of the work I did this year was engagement sessions. It was SO good to get out and spend time with all 17 of the engaged couples […]

2020 Best of Engagements

This is it: my last engagement session of 2020! And it sure ended with a bang!! Meet Emily and Adam, my new best friends and the sweetest, kindest people ever. From the very first email, I knew Emily was my kind of person (and if she was marrying Adam, I knew he’d be as well!). […]

Lapham Peak Fall Engagement | Emily + Adam

Gosh, these TWO!! Claire and Andrew are such amazingly kind and genuine people– I don’t know how the best people ever find me and book me to shoot their wedding, but for that I’m ever grateful! From the first pre-booking Zoom call when we virtually met, we just really hit it off and I remember […]

Fall Seven Bridges Engagement | Claire + Andrew

I have been looking forward to this engagement session for SO long, and not just because it was in my old home of Chicago. Mallory and Paul are two of the most genuine people, and it was such a treat to spend time with them! They met at a bar on the same block as […]

Chicago Engagement Session | Mallory + Paul

Introducing Melissa and Clayton! We chased the brightest fall colors all throughout their session and looking through these, you can tell we were VERY successful 🙂 Melissa and Clayton chose to start their session at Milwaukee’s beautiful Lake Park which had the most beautiful red and orange leaves! Melissa even brought along a fall bouquet […]

Lake Park Engagement | Melissa + Clayton

My love for these two runs pretty deep! If you’ve been around here long, you’ll recognize Ingrid and Jaron from their engagement session last summer. They had their wedding planned for this July, but like so many couples, they had their plans upended because of covid. So, the silver lining in all of this is […]

Marquette Fall Session | Ingrid + Jaron

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 […]

Madison Fall Engagement | Heather + Gordon

Meet Lyndsey and Scott! These two are such cuties and Retzer was ours for the evening to explore, which RARELY happens! I shoot at this location often, but I don’t think I’ve ever quite seen such beautiful fall colors here, so that was perfect for their session! Lyndsey and Scott met in high school, but […]

Fall Woods Engagement | Lyndsey + Scott

My first quintessentially fall engagement session of the year is HERE! Meet Summer and Bradley 🙂 We spent their engagement session exploring both the downtown and nature center of Waukesha, and it couldn’t have been more beautiful! Downtown Waukesha had trees that are already changing color and the most stunning golden light, and Retzer Nature […]

Fall Engagement in Waukesha | Summer + Bradley

Everyone, meet Lauren and Peter!! I have been WAITING to photograph these two for almost a year, and was so excited when it was finally time for their engagement photos. Lauren chose to take some photos at Klode Park (which was a first for me!) and I just LOVE the way they pop off the […]
