Milwaukee Engagement Photographer: Adena & Gilad!
Life is full of crazy twists and turns and you never know which one will be lead to lasting memories and permanent change. It’s the story of our company. We never thought the somewhat random choice to shoot some weddings on the weekends 21 years ago would lead to so many life-changing experiences and shared joy with so many amazing families. In fact, when Eron and Neil were starting this company Adena was in grade school and great friends with Eron’s sister. Who knew that years later she would be sitting in a coffee shop with him and her fiance talking to him about Amanda becoming their Milwaukee engagement photographer?!
Adena and Gilad certainly experienced all this same kind of happenstance in the lead up to their engagement. Adena started life in Wisconsin, Gilad in Israel, then the east coast then back to Israel. On that return journey in Israel, they came together and have been together in California ever since. The beach is a symbol of the start to their relationship so Amanda thought that would be a great start to their engagement session.
This image really jumped out at us in the studio. The way the sun perfectly frames Adena and Gilad as it peeks through the leading line of trees is just perfect. We take a lot of pride in making a great variety of images at any given shoot. It’s great to see some smiling faces. It’s also great to have some images that are more artistic and represent a feeling more than an expression. For us, it’s all about variety and balance.
Amanda has many strengths (too many to list in one blog post), but two of our favorites are her mastery of body language and her ability to find many different looks in one location. For anyone who feels like they need help posing (and that’s mostly everyone), having someone as enthusiastic, confident, and studied as Amanda directing you is a real asset. She can make you feel like a model and give you confidence in what you are doing that really comes through in images.
Delivering a collection that is not only beautiful but also has this many completely different options is what makes us so valuable to our couples. On a wedding day, this efficincy and vision becomes even more important since time is so limited and the to-do list can be so long.
