A few weeks ago I had the opportunity to travel to Madison, Wisconsin to photograph these two! Emily and Chad are getting married next May here in Des Moines, but they wanted to have their engagement photos done where Emily grew up. This was my first time in Madison and these two were so kind and showed off the city well. While driving up I was getting super nervous, it poured the entire time time I was in the car and I could only imagine how wet and soppy it was going to be in Madison. I arrived to a nice and dry, albeit very cloudy, city and I couldn’t have been happier. It was actually great that it was so cloudy – it created the perfect light box so we could shoot just about anywhere without having to worry about harsh sunlight and shadows. We made our way around Madison stopping at a local park, UW Madison (and Emily’s Alma Mater), and Finished the night off at Ella’s Deli where they have a great carousel!
Emily and Chad – Thank you again for your kindness and hospitality! I’m so happy we were able to make this work and could take these photos at a place that you love. I hope you enjoy some of my favorites!
These are definitely a few of my all time favorites!
Love this one!
