Milwaukee Engagement Photographer: Michelle & Evan!
Being a Milwaukee engagement photographer gives us a chance to hang out with couples long before their wedding day. For many couples, this is their first time being in front of a professional photographer’s camera. For some, it’s at that very moment that they realize they don’t have any idea what they are supposed to do! It didn’t take long for Michelle and Evan’s affectionate instincts to take over, though some helpful coaxing from us went a long way.
One thing Michelle said from the very beginning of our working relationship let us know we were completely on the same page. “We’d prefer it feel more casual and like a friendship then a business situation as I think that results in better pictures.” This is exactly why we love being a Milwaukee engagement photographer. Once we get to the wedding, there isn’t a better situation than the couple feeling completely at ease with you and, indeed, excited for you to be there. That’s a pretty universal feeling. Once a couple invests in us, they are generally excited about us being there. However, when we have had an engagement session with a couple as well, that excitement extends beyond our portfolios and includes a shared past and stunning results!
It is our job to strike that comfortable balance between helping a couple out and over-directing that we are always trying to strike. The experience of exploring an area together and working the light never fails to break down barriers and help a couple understand that the process is one that thrives on fun. Then, once we’ve finished prepping the images, seeing the stunning results calcifies the whole experience. Michelle and Evan could not have been more thrilled with the quality and variety of images that came from their engagement session. The ease with which it all came together was one of the more enduring impressions.
Who knew making art could be so much fun?!?
