Milwaukee Engagement Photographer: Elizabeth & Brad!
Sometimes the life of a Milwaukee engagement photographer takes you all the way out to Cedarburg! Often, we meet with our couples to figure out the plan (location, look, timing,…) for their engagement session. When we met with Elizabeth and Brad and heard about what they were trying to get out of the shoot, our instincts told us, “Cedarburg”. It’s not too frequent that we suggest a location 45 minutes away, but it was so clear that that adorable community offered exactly what they needed we couldn’t help ourselves. Imagine our surprise when they confirmed that their parents were pushing for the same location! It was so interesting because we thought we were bringing it up out of nowhere. It just goes to show how when something is right, it’s just right.
Elizabeth and Brad asked if they could bring their dogs along to the shoot. It wouldn’t be the whole family without them so we insisted that they bring them!
One of the most important aspects to their engagement session was making sure to get the changing colors of autumn into the photos. It was at the tail end of the season, but there was a lot of color to be had. Between Elizabeth’s stunning hair and stylish hat, as well as Brad’s more rugged outdoorsy look, everything fit together perfectly!
With a full team shooting their Dynamic Events by David Caruso Milwaukee Art Museum wedding coming up soon, we had the full team at the engagement session too! This is a rare treat for us and gave us a lot of opportunities to look around and seek out some new looks. There is something very special that happens when two people, each with their own ideas, come together for a shoot. Just the ability to step back and observe can open our eyes to something we may never have otherwise seen.
No engagement session in Cedarburg would be complete without a stop at Amy’s Candy Kitchen. When Elizabeth and Brad insisted on sending us home with an apple for each of us with our choosing, well, who are we to turn down a client’s generosity?
We wrapped up at the classic Rivoli Theater. If you’ve never spent any time in Cedarburg, you really should. It’s somehow maintained the best of small town America while also incorporating some truly innovative restaurants and entertainment as well.
