6 tips for choosing your portrait session outfits

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 […]

Milwaukee Lakefront Engagement | Claire + Sam

Lauren and Ben made the trek all the way from Illinois for their engagement session to one of my favorite spots to shoot- the Frame Park Formal Gardens!

Romantic Retzer Engagement | Kayla + Jestin

Meet Paige and Nate! These two couldn’t be any sweeter, and it was such a joy to be able to [finally] capture their engagement photos last Sunday. Paige and I went back and forth on multiple different locations, but she finally landed on Pope Farms and I think it’s safe to say she couldn’t have […]

Pope Farms Engagement | Paige + Nate

I am often tasked with helping my brides and grooms decide on a location for their engagement photos. Milwaukee has so many beautiful spots for engagement photos that it can be hard to choose! I normally ask if they want more natural or more urban of a spot, and narrow it down from there. I’m […]
