A rad couple in the park outside Lake Geneva Wisconsin!

Phoebe and Kramer were one of those couples of ours that we didn’t meet until their engagement session. These can be nerve wrecking sometimes – as we usually meet couples where there are A LOT of people! But, this time it was easy, we had the whole park to ourselves! The very same park they will be having their wedding ceremony!

I am going to let Kramer tell the story of how they met & the proposal story – as I don’t think I could tell it as well!

We met through our mutual friend, Kat, who also lives in Chicago. Phoebe and her know each other from University of Iowa and Kat was really good friends with my older brother all through high school. We ended up at the same bars/parties a few times after both moving to Chicago and after being told by Kat that I had no chance, I basically went on a mission to prove her wrong and immediately succeeded (actually it took quite a while to convince her to date me, but its way better for my ego when I tell people she liked me right away).

We have been together for close to 3 1/2 years now and have been engaged since April 2016.

Still hard to believe that for the first 3-4 times I saw her at a party I was too nervous to even say a word to her and even the first time I finally got myself to approach her. I saved her from a guy that wouldn’t stop talking to her by pretending to be her boyfriend and then immediately walked away and didn’t say another word to her the rest of the night… as you can tell I am very very smooth. Somehow that worked and she decided to come out with our group of friends for NYE a few weeks later and after some convincing by my brother (which I didn’t know was happening at the time) Phoebe decided to kiss me at midnight and that was our first kiss.

We’ve had a ton of great times since then that I won’t go into detail about but fast forward 28 months to our engagement and on April 23, 2016.

I proposed to her in front of the greatest place on the face of this Earth. The only piece of heaven that God decided to leave for us on this planet. The friendliest of confines, and the home of all-time greats like Ernie Banks, Ron Santo, Billy Williams, Greg Maddux, Ryne Sandberg, Mark Grace, Sammy Sosa, Kris Bryant, and your 2016 World Series Champion Chicago Cubs… Wrigley Field.

The above reason is why I LOVE asking couples how they met & proposed. I usually ask this at the first meeting, but there is something about reading it that makes it more romantic.

We met where their ceremony is going to be just a few months away. And man I just cannot wait for it even more now! It’s a beautiful park set on a little lake inlet. Where we saw fish and a toad just chilling with his eyes above water. We went down some beautiful trails. Which were muddy from the earlier rain, but surrounded by beautiful greenery! We are hoping for drier weather on their wedding day. As I would LOVE to put them in the same spots on their wedding day!

Phoebe and Kramer are two people that while photographing them they got lost in each other. This is always so beautiful to photograph and experience. You may read this a lot in my blogs and other social media. Why!? In a world that we sometimes forget about the beauty in the ugly. These moments remind me how important and amazing my job is. Love is why I do and Love is the reason for such beautiful moments.

There is so much about this couple that I love - Kevin is huge into the planning of their wedding, Kevin has a Harley, they met Rock Climbing, they surf, and have tattoos! Adventurous hearts! When I was thinking of locations for their engagement session, I kept returning to the Dells of Eau Claire - it's perfect! Rocks, trails, and the fall colors! We walked in the trails, and climbed the rocks - with their little dog along for the fun! They brought their Harley - and we HAD to get shots with it! It's a beautiful bike! I am still swooning over how awesome it is! We finished for a sunset photo with it.                              I had ...

I searched for hours trying to find the perfect spot to photography Chelsea and Nate for their fall engagement session. After not finding the right spot with the right enough amount of fall colors I got home and was like this is perfect! Our "back yard" is filled with half dead trees that turn early every year, and the light was always so golden and dreamy. We then went across the street to where there was a not so beautiful hill of grass and dirt - but it was more than perfect! I want to photograph in my yard more often! I have gotten to photograph these two before at a park for their Summer portion of their engagement! This time we were ...

Justin and I met at their super cute house where Sara has an awesome jungle growing in her living room, that happens to include some water plants with beta fish in each of them!!! I knew right then that we were meant to be connected become clients and friends! Then all 4 of us climbed into a little truck to drive about an hour to a beautiful spot in the mountain ...
