YAY! It’s almost the weekend AND this might be my favorite engagement session to date : ) It’s a really good day!!
I knew we would love working with Josh + Valerie before we ever even met them in person; my email correspondence with Valerie was always so wonderful + her excitement for their engagement session (+ wedding this August) was absolutely contagious! So when we met them in the parking lot of Irvine Park in Valerie’s hometown of Chippewa Falls, WI, lots of hugs + giggling ensued : ) Everyone was giddy for the session!!
As you will quickly see from the photos, Irvine Park is out-of-this-world BEAUTIFUL + Josh + Valerie are one goooood-looking couple, so our job was easy ; ) Caleb + I had a blast simply hanging out with these two + capturing the radiating adoration they have for one another!! Everything was perfect.
Josh + Valerie met at UW-Madison (yeahhh, Bucky!) but didn’t end up really getting to know one another + then eventually dating until the very end of their time on campus. It didn’t seem like the timing of their lives was in order–Josh was getting ready to move to Indiana for Law School + Valerie had accepted a Communications position at the University of Minnesota–however, FATE had different things in mind. Josh ended up getting accepted to the U of M’s Law School + these two love birds found themselves happily living in the same city for the next several years : )
As you can imagine, their love for one another only deepened over those years + they are now getting married on August 30th of this year!! We cannot WAIT to capture their wedding–after all, it will be our FIRST wedding as a MARRIED COUPLE!! Hehe : ) Thanks for such a fun session, J + V–see you again in just 3 SHORT months!!! -M
